At the Tokyo Game Show, Game Informer caught up with Nippon Ichi president Sohei Niikawa. Niikawa had a few interesting things to say about supporting Switch and more.

During the interview, Niikawa mentioned that NIS “wants to continue to release more and more games” on Switch. He said the following about releasing games on the platform:

At the start of 2019, Travis Touchdown will finally be making a return with Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. But fans have also shown quite a bit of interest in having past entries in the series appear on Switch as well.

While director Suda51 has acknowledged interest in doing this previously, it appears he’s actually now taking a proactive approach. Speaking with Nintendeal at PAX West 2018, he mentioned that he’s in talks with Marvelous in hopes of bringing No More Heroes 1 and 2 to Switch.

Killer7 first debuted on the GameCube way back in 2005. All of these years later, it’s seeing a re-release, though only on Steam at present.

No announcements have been made, but Killer7 may have a chance of appearing on Switch as well. Director Suda51 indicated in an interview with Nintendo Wire that it could happen if the title does well on Steam.

Speaking about why the time is right for Broken Sword 5 on Switch, Cecil mentioned that the fans had been requested it. Additionally, he says that the platform “has gone beyond the hardcore Nintendo fans to a mainstream audience”.

Dragon Ball FighterZ was originally announced at last year’s E3. Almost immediately, fans started to ask why there wasn’t a Switch version, and began requesting a port. Those requests will finally be fulfilled when Dragon Ball FighterZ arrives on Switch later this month.

Ahead of the release, Switch Player caught up with the developers to chat about the game. The interview started out with the team being asked about why the Switch edition didn’t appear at the same time as the PS4 and Xbox One versions:
