Limited Run Games “going to try and focus on going all-out on the Switch”

Limited Run Games is a name you may have heard of if you play titles on PlayStation platforms. Since 2015, the company has been releasing physical versions of indie titles on PlayStation 4 and primarily PlayStation Vita.
Limited Run Games now has its sights set on Switch. Speaking with CNET, co-founder Josh Fairhurst said the team is “really going to try and focus on going all-out” on Nintendo’s new system.
Fairhurst’s full words:
“I also see a lot of opportunity in the Nintendo Switch. I think many Vita fans will pick one up, maybe even begrudgingly, by the time the Vita is phased out. If we start publishing games there, I think that would be a nice place for Vita fans to relocate, should that become a necessity.”
“We’re really going to try and focus on going all-out on the Switch. Moving to 3DS would be costly and time-consuming and by the time we figure it out, we might as well just have focused on the Switch.”
