Many people are eager to see just how the Switch holds its own once next-gen competition from Sony and Microsoft hits the market. The PS5 and Xbox Series X are coming out in 2020, and devs are lining up experiences as we speak. Does that mean Switch support will fade away? According to a NintendoEverything interview with Engine Software VP of development Ruud van de Moosdijk, that won't be the case.
“In my opinion the Nintendo Switch, like the Wii before, exists in its own dimension of the market and will continue to do well even when the PS5 and the Xbox Series X are released. As so many times before Nintendo’s consoles have just their own uniqueness that doesn’t depend on having the fastest processor or the largest memory. That’s why I always have to smile when I hear someone say Nintendo is done.”
Engine Software are certainly in a position to discuss the Switch's potential, having worked on ports like Ni no Kuni and Into the Breach. Hopefully they'll have their hands on even more Switch offerings as the years roll on.
