Amnesia Dev On Nintendo Switch Port: “We’re Looking Into It”
Amnesia is a game series obsessed with creeping out all who decide to tread its ominous halls, and fans have continued shown appreciation as the series spawned a ‘Collection’ of follow-ups. The hair-raising saga recently expanded its platform availability to the Xbox One, having previously only been playable on PC and PlayStation 4. However, it now looks like developer Frictional Games now has hopes of an eventual Nintendo Switch port on the horizon.
Speaking with GameSpot, Amnesia creative director Thomas Grip expressed he would “love” to bring the series to Nintendo’s hybrid console, professing his excitement towards the thought of working with the company. He added the platform “should work” for their fright-inspiring titles and that they were “looking into it.”
We’re looking into it. I would love to do Switch content. I grew up with Nintendo being the big platform, so it’s like, ‘Wow, we’re actually doing video games for real now if we can get it on Nintendo!’
And it would just be cool to get it on a handheld as well, because I think that should work for Amnesia and other games as well. We’re looking into it and seeing what can be done. We’re hoping–if everything goes as we hope–we hope we’ll have it [on Switch].”
Amnesia: Collection potentially heading to Nintendo Switch is undeniably exciting for fans wanting to take horrors on the go, but it would also be a great addition to the console’s growing list of mature titles. Well-known favorites such as Bethesda’s DOOM, Digital Extremes’ Warframe, and Blizzard’s Diablo III have paved the way for a myriad of third-party games that don’t necessarily adhere to Nintendo’s family-friendly reputation. Perhaps we’ll see Amnesia Collection next added to the Switch library, but for now, the game currently resides on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
