When it comes to Nihon Falcom games, you won't find too much on Switch. Everyone else is putting their games on the platform, so why is Nihon Falcom holding out? USGamer asked Nihon Falcom's Toshihiro Kondo that very question, and you can find his answer below.
Switch is an incredible platform we like, but the truth is that we don't have the knowhow to really develop for Switch. Plus we're, fairly convinced that our main user base is actually located on the PlayStation platform. That said, you know, thanks to working with Nippon Ichi Software in Japan and then NIS America over here, we were able to bring one of our games to Switch and obviously we want to grow the brands as much as we can and put it out as much as we can. So in the future, if we have the opportunity to have our games ported by other other companies to Nintendo Switch, it's something we would definitely be happy to pursue.
And as a gamer myself, as an aside, I personally love the Switch. In Japan when this question comes up, it always, we get this weird thing where it's like "Falcom doesn't want to work on Switch," or "Falcom doesn't like Switch," or something. And that's not... The plain and simple truth of it all is that we just don't have the knowhow and the ability to be able to work on Switch games right now.
I would certainly agree with the president's statement about their audience being on the Playstation side of thing. Nihon Falcom hasn't really done all that much with Nintendo platforms in recent years, and have instead focused on Playstation platforms. If there was ever a chance to change that, now's the time!
