Injustice 2 for Nintendo Switch May come with Inevitable Compromises
NetherRealm Studios appears to be very interested in bringing its fighting franchises, for example, the recent Injustice 2 instalment, over to the Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
The creative director Ed Boon stated that it is totally possible to do so. Though, porting games such as Injustice 2 will ultimately mean that there might be defects in visual fidelity to justify the lighter hardware.
Boon stated that yes, he thinks that at the end of the day you can make about every game… there are unavoidable compromises, but you know this that you can make some version of Injustice on the Atari 2600.He added that it is not going to be wonderful, but he bets that you can make something.
He also noted the thing that technical challenges could also be there but they can be fought by farming out the project to another studio. In spite of everything, the Nintendo Switch does feature different hardware architecture. Therefore, an external team that is more familiar with the console would prove to be more effective.
Boon added that from the perspective of the game player, would it be fun to play Injustice on [Switch]? He does think that it would. He further added that you could have competitions, everyone comes over with their very own system and you can have entire structured tournaments and parallel gameplay and all that kind of stuff.
By now there are numerous two-dimensional fighting games present on the Nintendo Switch but most of them are reworked or remastered classic instalments. This contains the likes of The King of Fighters ’98 from SNK and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers from Capcom. The thing to know here is whether third-party studios are concerned in bringing over their fresh releases to the hybrid console. NetherRealm Studios definitely appears as if a contender to be the first in that regard.
In May, Injustice 2 was presented for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is also released for mobile devices. Even the developer managed to hold a poll earlier this year to inquire the community whether they would like to have a portable version on the PlayStation Vita or Nintendo Switch. The second one took the highest votes.
