Todd Howard recently talked to Glixel about the Nintendo Switch. He made a few interesting comments about Nintendo.
This is what Todd had to say when asked about bringing Skyrim to the Switch:
When it comes to the Switch, Nintendo’s the only company that can do that, right? When you hear that Nintendo’s going to do a new platform, there’s a lot of ways that can go. If you look at handheld gaming, they’re still the best at it. If they say ‘we’re going to make the best handheld ever and you can plug it into your TV’, well that’s just really, really smart. I hope they do well and it’s a unique opportunity for us.
Then he was asked about their communication with Nintendo:
They came to us early about Skyrim, and we always wanted to work with them. Even though it’s a game that people have played before and have known for a long time, it’s special for us to work them. I think it was Nintendo of America who reached out to us. I wasn’t the original point of contact. We met with some people from Japan, but it originally came from the American team. There was much more of a push this time to get the support. They have the kind of device that makes it much easier for third parties to give them the support.
What do you think about his comments on the Switch?
