Panic Button talks about working with Switch and squeezing more power out of the system, has no info on Wolfenstein Youngblood

If Panic Button is working on bringing Wolfenstein Youngblood, they aren't saying. In the interview above, we see Panic Button talking about the Switch in general, and their work on various games for the platform. This leads to a question about Wolfenstein Youngblood on the platform, and Panic Button says that's a discussion for Bethesda and Nintendo to have. I'd imagine if a port is happening, it's simply too early for Panic Button to say.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on Switch will not make any compromises, says dev team

The following is a snippet of a NintendoEnthusiast interview with Panic Button Games' Adam Creighton...

Nintendo Enthusiast: “There won’t be any compromises in frame rate or anything like that?”

Creighton: “No, we really made sure the gameplay wasn’t impacted by whatever framerate we needed to stick to on the hardware. That can be a challenge. When people have expectations about framerate they have expectations about gameplay. When we move a game to new hardware, we look at everything. Not just how it looks and performs on the hardware, but all the gameplay stuff: how the physics simulations work, how the audio works, and all that good stuff. So, there’s a lot of rebalancing and reprioritizing we do for all of the content.”

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus dev on the challenges of communicating with the player, potential for a third game

Andreas Öjerfors is a senior game designer on Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and he sat down with Eurogamer to take a look back at the project. In the interview, Andreas reveals what he sees to be as the biggest challenge that faces a developer.

"Communicating with the player is probably the most difficult part of being a game designer; trying to make the player understand what the player must without feeling like they're being told to do things... You need to communicate silently through cues and that's really difficult."

There's plenty in Wolfenstein II that Andreas is happy about, but also lots of things he'd like to change. Does that mean those wrongs could be set right in a third installment?

"I can't tell you that! That's something we would save for E3 two years into the future if we were doing that. Not because it's necessary but because we would like to do something different. This is now our third Wolfenstein game [by which he probably means The New Order, expansion Old Blood, and The New Colossus]. If we would continue down that route [Wolfenstein 3] we would play with the format a bit, do something that would interest us."
