Iron Galaxy

Metroid Prime Remastered developer Retro Studios

Thanks to the credits for Metroid Prime Remastered, we have new insight into the team behind the release.

While Retro Studios largely handled development, a number of other companies were involved. Iron Galaxy Studios, who previously worked on Switch versions of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Diablo III, and Overwatch seemed to play a prominent role during development. Airship Images Limited, Atomhawk Design, CGBot, Gamesim Inc, Liquid Development, Original Force LTD, Shanghai Mineloader Digital Technology, and Zombot Studio are also listed in the credits.

While Phoenix Labs is working to bring Dauntless to Switch, we now know that it’s not being done entirely in-house. According to the studio’s Chris Fox, Iron Galaxy is also involved.

Iron Galaxy previously ported The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to Switch. That turned out pretty well in the end, so here’s hoping that Dauntless also turns out well.

Diablo III Eternal Collection

Before the year is over, you’ll be able to play Diablo III on Switch. Kotaku spoke with senior producer Pete Stilwell about the port in a bit more detail earlier in the week.

Stilwell noted that bringing Diablo III to Switch went relatively smoothly, with “conversion on the graphics side” offering the greatest challenges. Nintendo did provide assistance with trouble-shooting.

At least for now, Capcom won’t be porting Monster Hunter World to Switch. But it sounds like there’s one developer out there who’d like to make it happen.

Iron Galaxy Studios CEO Adam Boyes tweeted out the following earlier today:

You might be interested to know that the new Switch version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim wasn’t made entirely be Bethesda. Iron Galaxy was brought in to work on the project, the official Twitter account for Bethesda Game Studios reveals.

The tweet below was sent out yesterday:

Iron Galaxy does have quite a bit of porting experience under its belt, so this news isn’t entirely surprising. Fortunately, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim turned out very well on Switch.
