Nintendo Planning To Bring More Mature Games To Switch

He adds that the hybrid console is a very different architecture and porting a game from say the PS4 to the Switch isn't as easy as it sounds.

Takuya Aizu, chief executive of Inti Creates, stated that they were initially not sure if Nintendo might be interested in the adult-oriented games like shooter Gal*Gun. Time will tell if more "mature" games will appeal om the Switch or remain more suited to Sony and Microsoft's consoles.

Crazy Justice will be coming to the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and PC, and is expected to be released by Q2 2018. Nintendo has also expressed a desire to reach a wide variety of play styles and audiences, with the company noting that "as with books, television and movies, different content is meant for different audiences". The game already runs at 60FPS on Xbox One and will run at 60FPS on Nintendo Switch as well.

Atsushi Osanai, a professor at Waseda Business School, feels that Nintendo should be more careful about how it rolls out more mature games for the console, notes Digital Trends.

Perhaps, with the past games experiencing positive reviews upon being ported to the Nintendo Switch, more publishers are looking to extend their market.

Nintendo knows that Switch sales have been swelling for months now, but the company wants to increase the user base. The accessibility of nearly every game being available to everyone has helped the company launch into global recognition, but as other console manufacturers have accommodated the ageing gamers and their craving of more mature content, Nintendo has frequently remained passive on the matter. The analyst believes that despite being both a home console and a handheld, the Switch will sell more like a traditional portable games system.
