No Man’s Sky Dev Wants The Game On Nintendo Switch
It seems that whenever a new game comes out, there is always a demand for a Nintendo Switch version. The console has delivered capable ports of AAA games like Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, Civilization VI, and Diablo 3, all the while also becoming the oft-preferred platform of indie favorites like Stardew Valley, Shovel Knight, and Undertale. It looks like a No Man’s Sky Nintendo Switch port could be next.
However, many games that come out on the beefier Sony and Microsoft consoles never make the jump over due to the high technical specs required to run them. Titles such as Resident Evil 2 (2019) and Grand Theft Auto V haven’t made the transition, though many games thought to be impossible to fit on Switch like Witcher III, DOOM (2016), and Mortal Kombat 11 have all made the jump. While a game like No Man’s Sky has an infinite universe that might be tough to port to Switch, Hello Games founder Sean Murray seems interested in trying.
In a recent interview with Game Informer, Murray was asked about the possibility of fitting a gigantic-scale game on Switch. “It’s super interesting,” says Murray.
I love the Switch. We’re obviously very focused on what we’re doing right now, but we have done a lot of work for PSVR to optimize the game. So I’d be interested to see what’s possible. But at the moment, we’re just very focused on what we’re doing right now.”
While it isn’t a confirmation, it’s definitely the most interest Murray has shown in the subject. You can try out No Man’s Sky in PSVR when No Man’s Sky Beyond releases for all players on August 14th as a free update.
