Tencent Hiring Devs To Port Its Video Games To Nintendo Switch
Tencent and Nintendo have been working for some time on developing games for Nintendo Switch. After Arena of Valor, the Chinese company has published a new job vacancy where they are looking for expert developers who can handle more gaming ports for the hybrid console.
As Daniel Ahmad of Niko Partners has reported, Tencent continues to work on the specialization of existing game adaptations for Nintendo Switch, although they have not specified what game or titles can be on this occasion. Other studios such as Panic Button, Iron Galaxy, Virtuos, Saber Interactive or Forever Entertainment have shown a more than remarkable ease in these works for works such as The Witcher 3, Overwatch, DOOM, etc.
According to the list, in this case, the development would correspond to an international distribution, so it is possible that there is still a great title. We insist that there is no specific name on the table, only that the commitment of both parties is ratified to continue working in the present for a future with more games from other systems on Switch.

The future of the console holds some good titles such as Luigi’s Mansion 3, Pokemon Sword and Shield or Animal Crossing, if we stick to the first-party titles. For this Christmas, Nintendo has a broader catalog than ever for both its internal studios and third-party companies; especially now that Nintendo Switch Lite is now available in stores.
From the NPD Group they estimate that it can be one of the most excellent quarters of the Japanese firm of recent times, with billing figures – at least in North America – similar to those seen in the years 2008 and 2009, when Nintendo also reached, its highest point in the stock market of the last five years.
