The eyes of many gamers and other press representatives are fixed on a possible announcement of the release of a “Switch Pro”. Nintendo says whoever wants to hear that nothing is planned. A studio that hasn’t been out of work since the console launched is rubbing hands in public. Something that intrigues Nintendo gamers.

The site Nintendo Life recently had the opportunity to talk to Christophe Gandon, General Manager of Virtuos, the studio responsible for many game ports on Nintendo Switch (LA Noire, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Dark Souls Remastered or The Outer Worlds), about the latter .
Virtuous’s manager welcomes the fact that investing in a Switch does not mean, as certain Nintendo consoles might do, eluding a large portion of the productions that come from third-party manufacturers and therefore from ” some of the largest licenses in the world “(he quotes series like BioShock or XCOM). And he applauds the way Nintendo needs to work with third-party vendors now, and applauds developers of all sizes. And what’s even more personal, it shows that at Switch they were still cutting out their work for them:
We have successfully used Nintendo’s toolkit to make games run well and look good on their hardware. And we look forward to new projects that are emerging this summer and beyond. There is still much work to be done by the Switch family.
Given the Virtuos industry, it is therefore to be expected that more third-party games, and especially title ports that were previously seen on other platforms, will be announced on Switch in the coming months.
His comment on the “famille switch“also has something to fascinate. From”famille switch, “does he hear” Nintendo Switch + Switch Lite “or does he imply that a new Switch console like the famous” Switch Pro “everyone is talking about is in the boxes.
If the latter is really planned for this year, a studio like Virtuos is certainly one of the structures already working on it. As the above games show, the studio, with offices in Paris, China, and Singapore, has been frequently asked by publishers to offer their games on Nintendo’s box. And it wouldn’t be surprising if they continued to address him. Answers are therefore expected by next summer.
What do you think of these statements from one of the leaders of Virtuoso? Do you think it implies the existence of a new switch? Which titles could he work on? Tell us everything in the comments below.
