Senran Kagura producer discusses his Nintendo Switch project slightly more

This comes from a translated Famitsu interview with Kenichiro Takaki, courtesy of Japanese Nintendo...

Famitsu: What point leaves the most impression to you?

Kenichiro Takaki
: It ’s the HD Rumble after all. Because I want to express “softness” with it. I already created a project, and now I’m in the middle of focusing on how to realise it. I think games have a “sensation of touching” in many meanings, so I want to realise a new experience that ’s exclusive to Nintendo Switch.

Unlikely Legend Of Rusty Pup - game coming to Switch, Wii U version canned

This comes from a NintendoLife interview with Gory Detail's Chris Seaver...

On the Nintendo Switch version
''The Switch is great for us, a nice new platform to take advantage of early on in its cycle. The system itself I think is a brilliant little device, and quite bold in what it's trying to do, bridging the gap between home and portable entertainment in one system. Although by all accounts this doesn't mean 3DS is being side-lined, quite the contrary.

It's great for us for a number of reasons; the buzz of a new console, the lack of software initially where we can slot nicely into - we always were a good fit for the Nintendo demographic (E-rated Puzzle Platformer) - plus our core mechanic translates seamlessly onto the hardware. It must be noted I don't have one yet, nor have I played with it, so it remains to be seen what nuances and hidden value the system has in terms of design; I look forward to having a good 'tinker' but as a whole the features seem very solid and sensible.

The price I can see being a bit off putting at first, but that'll come down, although first party game prices are probably a tad high. Even so I imagine most retailers will discount. Obviously Rusty Pup will fall into the more £12 to £15 digital-only price range so that doesn't affect us.''

On the status of both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions
''I'd pretty much back-burnered the Wii U in terms of dev for a while now because of the cost to develop on something that was increasingly seen as a dead end system. Along comes the Switch, hopefully reinvigorating Nintendo's home console market. It all dovetails nicely. Switch is pretty much a defo, just not sure when. 3DS is dependent on resources and time issues but currently a yes. Wii U, nah.''
