TT Games shares their love for Switch, says LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga runs like a dream on the platform

Big fans of Switch

TT Games has a very long history with Nintendo platforms, and they're continuing that line with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Switch. In a NintendoEverything interview, TT Games' James Burgon and Arthur Parsons talk about their work on the Switch version of the game, as well as the Switch in general. Check out what they had to say below.

James Burgon: “It’s been really good actually. The first build that we had on Switch ran like a dream, so it’s great. With the new technology, we started off and had that in mind because Switch is one of our biggest platforms actually in the US, so we really want to do it justice on that platform.”

Arthur Parsons: “We love Switch. We love Nintendo. TT loves Nintendo, right? If you go back to the original Star Wars games with the Complete Saga which is one of the first game that I worked on back in 2006 – those games and Indy 1, and that kind of stuff, they were on Wii and then the Wii U. TT has been really good about doing the same game across all platforms without having to make it so much worse because we’ve been doing this for a long, long time. So the Switch, that’s not a challenge for us. Yeah there’s different technical hardware and software things with all consoles, but we work hard to make sure the experience is as good as it can be on all platforms including Switch.”
