Nintendo expects Switch ports to arrive much sooner starting next year

“We’re talking today about a platform that is 16 months old,” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé tells The Verge at E3. “The development cycle today is multiple years. So I would argue that beginning at the end of this year, or next year, that gap will have closed. Because key developers have had the development systems, they’ll have been working to create content for our platform from the beginning. That’s what is going to close that time gap.”

I need more first part titles to arrive sooner than games I can get on the PS4. Also nintendo still needs to patch xenoblade chronicles 2, or do I need to buy an amiibo to fix that game?

Xenoblade Chroonicles 2 was never made for handheld mode.
If you people are still complaining about that mode.

What a poor excuse, the Switch is a handheld, the game should run best in that mode. Stop with the damage control.

MrSwankSinatra177d ago

Excuse me? We all bought a switch to utilize the features of the system, so you can damage control all you want, but I, along with many others want Xenoblade Chronicles 2 to run competently on handheld mode, period.

Not every game is going to utilize it well. Monolith Soft obviously didn't care much if they still haven't patch it. You can see the clear difference in both mode.
Docked look 1000 time better. Some games are just too demanding.

How about you stop with the constant hate on anything Nintendo related.

I would like new 3rd party support rather than ports of games I've already played.

why would anyone buy a watered down switch port when one can play the real versions on the real consoles? beats me everytime.

Portability? You can’t exactly carry those consoles around like a handheld you know.

Playing game on the Switch during breaktime at work and continuing those game on a big TV when come back home is awesome.


Why would anyone buy the watered down console versions of games when they can play the "real" version on a suped up PC?

DJK1NG_Gaming177d ago

Same reason why would anyone buy watered down ports on every previous system.
Even one that had it rough the PS3 and Vita
