It’s a sentence that rolls of the tongues of a certain stripe of gamers more and more recently: ‘That would be good for the Switch!’ It seems that Ed Boon, creator of Mortal Kombat, Injustice 2, and founder of NetherRealm Games, agrees.
Speaking to Gamespot, Boon mused on the possibility of bringing it to the Nintendo Switch: “Yeah, I think at the end of the day you can make almost any game… there are inevitable compromises, but you know, you can make some version of Injustice on the Atari 2600 – It’s not going to be great, but I bet you can make something.”
Boon also sounded generally interested in developing games for the Switch, saying:
“It is a pretty different hardware architecture; it’s not like you can go from a PlayStation 4 to a Switch really easily. So I think we would need to set up something in terms of an external team. I know on the art team, we have enough people to do three console SKUs, and that would be something we’d need to work out.”
It’s sounding like an exciting time to be a Switch player – especially if you’re a fighting game fan. So far, the platform has been serves with more retro offerings, with the likes of Street Fighter II and a couple of Neo Geo classics.
