Injustice 2 Could Run On Nintendo Switch; Port Would Require Outside Studio
Injustice 2 has been released earlier this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but there’s the chance that the game might become available on Nintendo Switch ( Amazon, $299.00) sometime in the future, judging from some recent statements from Ed Boon.
Speaking with GameSpot at the Brazil Game Show, the NetherRealm Studios’ boss confirmed that Injustice 2 could run on Nintendo Switch, albeit with some shortcomings.
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. It’s not going to be great, but I bet you can make something.
Speaking of a possible port, Ed Boon highlighted how technical challenges may require the help of an outside studio.
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.
Injustice 2 is now out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in all regions.
