When Pokemon Unite releases, it’ll support full cross-platform play. Switch and smart devices will be fully compatible, allowing all users to connect online together.
While The Pokemon Company is trying out cross-platform play, the feature is not something that Nintendo itself is pursuing at the moment. President Shuntaro Furukawa confirmed there are currently no such plans to integrate the functionality for its titles during the company’s financial results conference call last week.
“After advance discussions with The Pokémon Company about Pokémon UNITE, it was decided that given the genre of the game and the anticipated player population, a cross platform format was appropriate. That said, we have no plans for cross-platform play for Nintendo titles.”
