Bandai Namco Wants To Release More Games On The Nintendo Switch

During the Wii U era, it seemed like many developers and publishers avoided it like the plague (customers included). While the console generated a fair amount of interest at the start as it was piggybacking off the success of the Wii, it was soon quickly abandoned. The Nintendo Switch on the other hand tells a very different story.

In fact in a recent tweet by The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki, he reports that during Bandai Namco’s earnings press conference, the company expressed their interest in bringing more of its games onto the Switch. According to the company, this is due to the fact that the Switch has the appeal of being able to play anywhere at anytime and by anyone. The company did not mention any titles specifically, but their interest is encouraging.

While it has yet to be officially revealed/confirmed, this information was revealed through the LinkedIn profile of a certain Shawn Pitman, who is a lead designer working at the company's Singapore Studios. According to his profile, one of the projects he is working on is an unannounced IP that comes in the form of a FPS/adventure game that will be exclusive to the Switch.
