Coming from an interview with Famitsu, EA’s executive vice president Patrick Soderlund had to say this about the development process and how Nintendo is handling the Switch:
“I only spoke about FIFA today, but our company’s structure lets us release all sorts of games for every platform, so we’ll go wherever the gamers go. I think Nintendo Switch will put Nintendo at the forefront of the game industry once again. Their approach is quite different from anything they’ve done in the past – they’ve listened to EA, Activision, and other companies since the beginning of the Switch’s development, so we’ve been involved throughout the whole process. They teamed up with us because they wanted to guarantee the console would be successful. Doing business with Nintendo is very important for us… We’d like to bring more and more games over for everyone.”
This certainly sounds good about 3rd Party Support for the Switch, but we can only hope they keep that promise to ensure that the console succeeds.
