Ed Boon talks about the possibility of bringing Injustice 2 on Nintendo Switch
Injustice 2 debuted this year on consoles of the current generation, however, Nintendo fans have been wondering for some time if the game will arrive on Switch. Ed Boon, the creative director of NetherRealm Studios, talked about the situation.
During his presentation at the Brazil Game Show, GameSpot chatted with Boon, who pointed out that there are possibilities to see Injustice 2 on Switch, although he suggested that it could be a limited version.
“Yeah, I think at the end of the day you can make almost any game… there are inevitable compromises, but you know, you can make some version of Injustice on the Atari 2600,” he said. “It’s not going to be great, but I bet you can make something.”
Recall that Injustice 2 has a version for mobile, where the game system is different. Taking this as an example, NetherRealm could make a Switch-exclusive version with other features. Remember that EA did something similar to FIFA 18.
Is Boon interested in developing Nintendo Switch games? “Yeah, actually, I do,” he replied. “It is a pretty different hardware architecture; it’s not like you can go from a PlayStation 4 to a Switch really easily. So I think we would need to set up something in terms of an external team. I know on the art team, we have enough people to do three console SKUs, and that would be something we’d need to work out.”
“From the game player’s perspective, would it be fun to play Injustice on [Switch]? I do think it would,” he continued. “You could have tournaments, everyone comes over with their own system and you can have whole structured tournaments and parallel gameplay and all that.”
In March of this year, Boon asked the fans if they wanted to see a version of Injustice 2 on Switch or on Vita. As expected, the Nintendo console was victorious, but NetherRealm gave no further information on the matter.
