Factor 5 weighs in on Switch performance, has the rights to Turrican

Posted on March 15, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News, Switch

Factor 5 co-founder Julian Eggebrecht appeared on the latest episode of German podcast Spieleveteranen. During the talk, Eggebrecht weighed in on Switch.

Regarding Switch’s technical performance, Eggebrecht said its between Wii U and Xbox One. However, he claims that developing is as easy or even easier than the PlayStation 4. Switch is further supported by having all modern GPU standards.

Factor 5 was thought to be dead at a few points, but they’re apparently alive and kicking again. The company even has the rights to Turrican, so perhaps that’s something that could appear on Switch in the future.

    I’m surprised Factor 5 is still up, I remember reading that they closed doors back in 2010 or 2011

    Factor 5 is still alive?! Thank heavens. I truly missed them… especially with games like Super Turrican for Super NES, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron for N64, and Star Wars Rogue Squadron II – Rogue Leader for the GameCube. Welcome back!

      I remember watching a documentary about how shady everything was. I am very surprised they are still around. I loved their games though especially Rogue Squadron 2

      They completed Rogue Squadron 4 for Wii, motion control lightsaber battles and all, but never released it because they didn’t have publishing money.

      i’m sure you’ll be missed when you pass on

      everyone will say – remember old stinky breath the pinhead fanboy with the iq of a squashed tomato ?

    Make it happen ……A.S.A.P
    Rogue leader 3 plz ……..PLZZZZZZ!!!!!!!

  • GoldenTriforce

    Oooh, maybe they can find some way to rerelease that completed but canceled Wii Rouge Squadron game

  • Jacob Groves

    Rogue Squadron 3 please!!!!! Make this happen. Nintendo partnership with EA because EA owned Star Wars so get Factor 5 onboard to bringing RS 3 for Switch-exclusive!!!

      Would be weird to play rogue squadron without the GameCube analog controllers but I would totally be down for it anyways

    • Matthieu Fournier

      There already is a Rogue Squadron 3… and it was total crap. A remake of Rogue Squadron 2 : Rogue Leader would be really nice, though.

      • Justin McQuillen

        Rogue Squadron 3 is completely amazing, what game are you talking about?

  • Kaine Morrison

    Too bad that EA no has exclusive rights to each and every future Star Wars game.
    🙁
    Would have loved to see these guys make more!

    Hmm I wonder how much all that heavy custom optimization will affect the precieved real world performance, in regard to the technical performance

    Glad to hear they’re back in the game. I know Rogue Squadron is a long shot but like others have stated it would be a dream come true to see the series return on Switch. I’ve never played a Turrican game before but I’ve always heard good things about the series.

    Is there some way I can donate money to Factor 5? They deserve funding.
