Here’s why you won’t get a Red Dead Redemp­tion 2 Switch port, ac­cord­ing to Nin­tendo it­self


TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

We might have The Leg­end of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Skyrim on the Nin­tendo Switch to sat­isfy our open world needs on the go, but there’s no doubt that some own­ers of Nin­tendo’s lat­est con­sole are day­dream­ing at the thought of play­ing Red Dead Redemp­tion 2 on the por­ta­ble hand­held sys­tem.

And, ac­cord­ing to Nin­tendo of Amer­ica’s Pres­i­dent Reg­gie Fils-Aime, the idea of Rock­star’s tech­ni­cal pow­er­house run­ning on the plat­form isn’t to­tally crazy. Speak­ing with The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter, Fils-Aime was asked whether Red Dead Redemp­tion 2 is some­thing that the com­pany would be in­ter­ested in hav­ing on Switch, and his re­sponse is per­haps more telling than you might ex­pect.

“Ab­so­lutely. We’d love for it to be there”, said Fils-Aime, “but [...] Red Dead has been in de­vel­op­ment for years, time that pre­dated any com­mu­ni­ca­tion of Nin­tendo Switch. So, from the de­vel­oper’s men­tal­ity, they need to move for­ward and fin­ish the game they’ve been work­ing on and then be in a po­si­tion to look at other op­por­tu­ni­ties.”

I’m still strug­gling to get my head around the idea of a game like Red Dead Redemp­tion 2, which pushes the PS4 and Xbox One to their very lim­its!
