Time to start making bets, what could these games and projects be?
While Panic Button and Iron Galaxy have made a name for themselves as being the go to porthouses for third parties looking to put their games on the Nintendo Switch, China-based Virtuous is a dark horse contender in this race, too. The studio has been responsible for the Switch ports of Rockstar’s L.A. Noire Remastered, as well as the just released Dark Souls Remastered.
Both ports have been well received, and it seems like the company’s work has gotten noticed. Speaking to Nintendo Life, Dark Souls: Remastered executive producer Lukas Codr said that the company has several more high profile Switch projects in the works, that it hopes will be coming out soon.
“For obvious reasons, we cannot say what exactly we’re working on, but we will definitely have some exciting high-profile Switch games coming out very soon,” Codr said. “By porting Dark Souls we have proven that we can take on any Switch project, so we are confident we will get more projects in the future. As you might have seen in the last few weeks, we’ve also worked on Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas, which has received critical acclaim.”
It remains to be seen what these upcoming games are, but for Switch owners, the news that they have received more work is great overall—it implies more third party projects and games will be coming to the console, which honestly, we can never have enough of.
Dark Souls Remastered and L.A. Noire Remastered are both out on Switch now, as well as PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
