Given the success that Switch has had since its launch, it has become common for some third-party companies to be questioned about the possibility of their next titles arriving on the new Nintendo console. On this occasion, Motohiro Okubo revealed what he thinks about a hypothetical version of SoulCalibur VI for Switch.
In an interview conducted by Metro UK, Motohiro Okubo, the producer of SoulCalibur VI, spoke about the possibilities of the game to be released on Switch, the news is not positive for the users of the new Nintendo console, since Okubo assured that Switch is not included in the development process of the new title, especially since its creation began before the system existed.
In that sense, Okubo stated the following: “SoulCalibur VI development started more than three years ago. And nobody knew anything about Switch back then. So, as a matter of fact we are not working on Switch, as of now.”
Although the declaration began with the confirmation that a version of SoulCalibur VI for Switch is not envisaged, Okubo left open the possibility that, at some point, the situation may be different: “I’m interested in the platform. So if the Unreal Engine can adapt to Switch, and evolve itself, then maybe the possibility will be more.”
SoulCalibur VI will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2018. Would you like to see Soul Calibur VI on Nintendo Switch? Tell us in the comments below.
