Report: Devs who passed on Switch now scrambling to make games

Posted By   pocky's Avatar pocky   on November 7th, 2017 Report

When Nintendo first announced the Switch console, not everyone was sold. Some were hyped, some took a wait-and-see approach, and others just plain didn't believe the concept would work. According to a report, many Japanese game developers didn't think the console would sell this well and be as popular as it is. Now they're scrambling to make games for the console and cash in on the opportunity. That's according to Hirozaku Hamamura, CEO of Japanese game-magazine publisher Gzbrain, who is one of the most knowledgeable people when it comes to the inside workings of the Japanese game industry. He believes that Japanese developers and publishers have been surprised by the success of the Switch (and who can blame them?) and that they are now scrambling for projects that can be made and released on the new console. Hamamura now believes that a lot of big games from Japanese developers won't hit the Switch until 2019 because of that delay. Via WSJ (sub required)
