The action RPG could be coming to Nintendo’s system.
Code Vein resurfaced recently, after a lengthy delay, with a producer video and a network test demo. The game is very anime-inspired in its art style and plays similar to Dark Souls, like many recent action RPGs. it is slated to come out this year and will come to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There’s no official announcement for Nintendo’s Switch, so there’s no way to take the game on the go for whenever it does release. But that could change down the road, according to producer Keita Iizuka.
In an interview with GameSpot, Iizuka talked about several aspects of the game, like the delay and how the game puts its own spin on the Souls formula with the buddy system. When talking about platforms the game will launch on, he opens the door to the game possibly making its way to Nintendo’s system.
“We are focusing on development for PS4, Steam, and Xbox One,” he said. “But as far as the possibility of porting to Switch or [the Epic Games Store], there might be a possibility down the line. We can’t really say for sure at this point.”
Bandai Namco has had several high profile games release on a delayed schedule for the Switch, so it’s very possible we’ll see Code Vein there down the road. For now, the game is slated for this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
