Reggie says Switch ports likely to arrive much sooner starting end of this year / next year
More third-party ports for Switch were announced at E3 this week. Fortnite was the big one, but a game like Dragon Ball FighterZ is also notable.
The only downside is that Switch owners have had to wait longer for ports, as titles have been coming out later on the platform compared to the initial debuts on other systems. However, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime believes this will change starting in 2019.
Reggie told The Verge:
“We’re talking today about a platform that is 16 months old. The development cycle today is multiple years. So I would argue that beginning at the end of this year, or next year, that gap will have closed. Because key developers have had the development systems, they’ll have been working to create content for our platform from the beginning. That’s what is going to close that time gap.”
