“I think you can expect to see other titles on the Switch…”
Update: Nintendo has gone ahead and confirmed that Telltale’s Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy will be coming to the Switch. This was confirmed through a tweet which you can check below this article. The headline has been changed to reflect the update.
While big western AAA support is still up in the air, the Switch is starting to do very well for itself in terms of garnering third party support from just about all other quarters- Japanese, indie, and now, western mid tier developers and publishers, too.
Take Telltale- they have stated that in addition to Minecraft: Story Mode, Nintendo Switch owners can expect more of their games on the platform, including Telltale’s take on Batman and Guardians of the Galaxy.
“I think you know as a studio that prides itself in having our games, the same games, that you play on a big PlayStation console, is the same thing you will play on a telephone,” Telltale’s Head of Creative Communications Job Stauffer said in a recent interview with Eurogamer. “The Switch is that happy medium of the two. It’s part console and it’s part mobile. So it just feels natural on the Switch and we love it.
“Minecraft, the first game, came out today. I think you can expect to see other titles like Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, maybe Minecraft Season 2 in the future.
“We don’t have dates yet but we’re big fans of the platform. More Telltale titles are coming to the Switch, stay tuned.” Eventually, Nintendo themselves confirmed that both games are hitting the Switch via a tweet, which confirms it with finality.
So, yes- it looks like Switch owners can soon look forward to playing Telltale’s take on just about every pop culture property and franchise that there is on Nintendo’s newest machine. Things are slowly starting to pick up on the third party support front for Nintendo- now if only those pesky AAA western developers would come around…
