With the Switch soon to be released, the same questions are getting asked again and again – ‘What games will be available’. With many standard console game devs already stating that they would like to work with Nintendo, it wasn’t long before someone asked Respawn about the possibility of playing Titanfall on the Switch.
In a recent interview with Drunk Tech Review senior designer Mohammad Alavi wasn’t holding back, and as you can see from his response he’s drawn a big, bold line under that question:
Mohammad Alavi: …I was excited about it. Nintendo’s been in such a niche market recently, catering to the handheld and the kids, they’ve been so underpowered that they don’t have the support of the third parties because they’re all making for the PC, Xbox One and PS4, and it’s no different.
Micha: I am going to drink to it mainly because, I understand. It will be underpowered. I’m not going to be able to play Titanfall on it. Like, can you tell me?
Mohammad: Fuck no! No, you’re not going to be able to fit Titanfall 2 on the Nintendo Switch. That’s the same Zelda from the Wii U?
So there you have it, no Titanfall on the Switch.! The issue of power will more than likely be the stumbling block for many larger titles wanting to add an extra console into their armoury. As with the Wii U, it seems nintendo still might not have completely cracked it when trying to come up with a portable console.
