Bethesda’s Todd Howard has spoken out on what he thinks of the upcoming Nintendo Switch.
Speaking to Glixal, Howard was asked what he thinks of the Nintendo Switch. He responded by stating: “I love it. I got to play it. I will tell you – well, maybe that’s an N.D.A. thing. One of the best demos I’ve ever seen. Probably the best demo I’ve ever seen. At E3.”
Howard was then asked if it was a game that he was impressed with. He responded by saying: “I mean the device itself. I think it’s really smart what they’re doing. We’re definitely going to be supporting it. It’s the first time we’ve done something on Nintendo. If you don’t count the old NES stuff. Home Alone. Or Where’s Waldo?”
Bethesda is not the only company to have high hopes for the Switch. Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen has also stated that the company plans on supporting the upcoming console: “We’re excited for Nintendo, it’s an interesting device. But I can’t yet predict how broad it’s going to be, and [if people will] be interested in a portable device alongside their regular portable device that they have… In terms of Nintendo, in their announcement they announced that we’ll be supporting with a game or two on that new platform. We haven’t yet announced what game, but you should assume that it’s one of our bigger games we’ve been involved with.”
The Nintendo Switch is expected to release next spring. More details about the upcoming system are coming in January.
