The Switch plays host to all sorts of genres, but text-heavy games have found a special home on the platform. It seems Switch owners are more than willing to support visual novels and other games that focus on text as the method of driving gameplay.
Petit Depotto, the team behind the the “debate-style RPG” Gnosia, certainly feel Switch is well suited to the genre. The game originally made its debut on the Vita, but eventually made its way to Switch late last month. In an interview with Engadget, Shigoto and Cotori of Petit Depotta commented on how Switch lends itself to text-based games.
Shigoto: “I feel that both (Switch and Vita) are great for text-heavy/text-based games.”
Cotori: “I think that the Nintendo Switch has now become that system. There aren’t any other ‘active’ mobile game systems around.”
