The Evil Within 2 producer says “a Switch version would be interesting”

Posted on September 22, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

After working at Capcom and being involved with many Resident Evil games over the years, Shinji Mikami founded his own studio Tango Gameworks back in 2010. He then partnered with Bethesda and went back to his survival roots to create The Evil Within. Next month, that game is getting a sequel.

In an interview with Mikami, GameSpot asked potentially bringing the game to Switch. He said in response:

“I think a Switch version would be interesting. I’d like to try it if I had the chance.”

Mikami said he’d like to first buy a Switch. He wanted to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but had to borrow a unit from another staff member in order to play it.

Bethesda has been showing a lot of love for Switch so far, so perhaps it isn’t entirely impossible that The Evil Within 2 will make its way over. Is that something you’d like to see?

    DO IT PLS!

  • Vigilante_blade

    I’ll say the same thing to every third party: Less thinking, more doing.


      Funny thing is, the man was a former talented developer of Capcom until they p***** him off with Resident Evil 4.

    • Ardisan


  • Garcessist

    I smell Evil Within port incomin!


    Do it ya magnificent handsome man!

  • Roto Prime


  • theFooFighter

    Anything is possible if Skyrim, Wolfenstein and doom sell well. Same applies to fallout and dishonored

    • Billy Skittles

      I don’t think Fallout 4 did well enough to warrant a port.

  • Apfel

    Do it. Or do not. There is no try

  • Marco Romano

    It’s actually possible cause the engine is the id_tech, which is one of the most flexible and scalable engines around.
    It is the engin with which Doom has been developed

    • Hi Marco, would like join our unofficial NE discord? We’re a community of Nintendo gamers, the link is in my bio if you are instrested. Good day Sir!

  • I think it’s coming to the Switch but maybe late 2018

    • Jacob Groves

      Yeah with all DLCs include.

  • jimmy

    Implement the hd rumble

  • I certainly hope he gets a Switch, and that he and Bethseda can port the game. I’ll support it and give it a shot, if they can make it happen.

  • Jacob Groves

    Or he could make exclusive survival horror game for Switch not just porting The Evil Within 2 for Switch.

    • Billy Skittles

      Agreed, but Nintendo needs to get as many main third-party titles as they can, otherwise we will be back at square one with the Wii U all over again. You need a good mix of third and first-party titles.

  • Melatelo

    I would die to have his! Make it happen Bethesda!! Played the first one on PS4 and loved it.

  • Exy

    [thinking intensifies]

  • MoYeung

    Bethesda won’t do it

    • TDude73

      How would you know, Mo? You don’t. There is a possibility that Bethesda COULD bring The Evil Within 2 to the Switch.

      • MoYeung

        Just my opinion

    • Billy Skittles

      Mikami has no say over something like that. That’s up to Bethesda.

  • R.Z.

    That would be awesome !
    And bring the first one as well whan you’re at it.

    As an aside that’s yet another Japanese videogames VIP who couldn’t get a Switch …

  • Ghoul Dash

    I hope The Evil Within gets rereleased on the Switch.

  • Billy Skittles

    No reason not to port this to the Switch. Nintendo needs more third-party titles like this.
