Playtonic looking to get Yooka-Laylee out on Switch "as soon as possible"

A portion of a GameReactor interview with Playtonic's Andy Robinson...

GR: How are you approaching the Nintendo Switch? What would you expect in terms of success for this specific version?

AR: It's a bit too early to go into specifics with this version, but rest assured we're working directly with Nintendo to get it out as soon as possible for our many fans and Kickstarter backers on that platform. We're big Nintendo fans here, so it's very exciting to be working on Nintendo Switch.

Anew: The Distant Light confirmed for Switch

Last week, we told you about the Kickstarter for Anew: The Distant Light, a title that had a Switch stretch goal. Not only was the game funded, the Switch stretch goal was hit as well. We'll keep you posted on all development updates from here on out.

Fan-Art: Famicom-themed Joy-Con and grip

Famicom themed Switch Controller

Yet another gorgeous fan-made setup. I think I still dig the GameCube design first, but this is a very close second.

Now who's going to one-up this guy and put together a working prototype for an N64 version?!

Zelda devs share their hopes for what you'll do/see when you play Breath of the Wild

Coming from a GamesRadar feature...

Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi wants you to find surprises

"This time the focus for the planning staff was to work hard to ensure that there is always some surprise when you reach your destination. The world in this game is extremely vast, but we made sure that there is always something to discover whenever you see something suspicious, so I hope that players will enjoy uncovering the elements and secrets that we hid in the world as they play."

Producer Eiji Aonuma wants you to play with friends

"We've shown the world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to you in various ways, such as at demo events. However, though there will certainly be players who play the game by themselves, interestingly enough, if you get together with your friends to play I think that you will find that it is hard to sit and watch quietly. I suppose that playing The Legend of Zelda games alone could actually be considered another one of the conventions of the series, so people enjoying this game together with friends is a new experience for the series.

"I think that we've made a game where it's really fun to give each other advice and speculate about going to different places and trying different things. I myself am planning to play the game with my children. With the Nintendo Switch version, you can take the game out of the house and play it by yourself, but I hope players then return home and get together to explore this vast world on the big screen with their whole family."
