Ben 10 confirmed for Switch

Posted on 1 year ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 17 Comments | 0 Likes

Ben 10 is coming to Switch, a listing on Amazon reveals. Outright Games previously teased a release on Nintendo’s console, but this is the first actual confirmation we have.

Amazon’s listing doesn’t contain any information at present. However, first screenshots seem to show that it’ll be an action game / brawler. We also have a look at the boxart above.

Amazon tentatively lists Ben 10 for the end of October. Pre-orders are open here.

The Switch version of FIFA 18 doesn’t use Frostbite similar to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. EA did, however, come up with its own custom engine for Nintendo’s console.

Explaining why the team decided against using Frostbite on Switch, developer Andrei Lazarescu noted:

“As much as we would have wanted to (use Frostbite) you can’t without making the whole engine work. We intentionally chose to do a custom engine because we felt that rather and try and get Frostbite running and end up having to downsize things and making it just a smaller, lower-quality version of the PS4 and Xbox One versions, we wanted this to be a FIFA that stands on its own two feet. We want people to recognise it and play it for what it is rather than saying, hey, you’re getting a sh***y, second-rate game. This is a full FIFA that players players will enjoy.”
