GamesRadar recently caught up for an interview with Suda51 for all things Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. Although there was talk about the upcoming Switch game, Suda51 took some time to reflect on the series as a whole.
One noteworthy part of the discussion came about while Suda51 commented on No More Heroes being accepted in the west compared to Japan. He said that there has “definitely” been a “much more positive reaction” in North America and Europe. Although the reaction in Japan hasn’t been particularly bad, it perhaps hasn’t been as warmly received due to its violent nature and blood.

Nintendo said that F-Zero was one of its first games that was created in-house, talked about the first demo having Hot Wheels-esque toy cars, how Shigeru Miyamoto’s suggestion of removing an invisible wall really opened things up during development, Captain Falcon originally being designed as the mascot for the SNES, and more.

All indications thus far point to NBA 2K18 being very solid on Switch. Aside from some graphical differences, the Switch version matches up well to its counterparts on other platforms.
In an interview with Gamereactor, senior producer Rob Jones discussed the approach to creating NBA 2K18 for Switch in a bit more detail. From day one, Visual Concept’s president spoke about making it “the same exact game that was on PS4 and Xbox One”. It goes without saying that doing so was no easy task.
Jones’ full words:

Codemasters was listed in the lineup of developer partners on board with Switch last October. Thus far, however, the company has yet to produce any games for the console.
GameIndustry did ask creative director Lee Mather if Codemasters will return to Nintendo platforms by supporting Switch in the future. He acknowledged that, given its success, “there’s certainly the possibility we’ll look at doing something on Switch.” However, bringing over Codemasters’ same exact games from the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is unlikely.

As part of an interview concerning Fire Emblem Heroes, TouchArcade asked Intelligent Systems’ Kouhei Maeda about the possibility of a new Advance Wars for mobile. Maeda worked on the scenarios for Advance Wars games back in the day.
