Virtuos has “some exciting high-profile Switch games coming out very soon”
Virtuos has ported a couple of games to Switch. The company handled the Switch version of L.A. Noire last year and most recently was behind Dark Souls: Remastered. That won’t be all, as more games are on the way.
Speaking with Nintendo Life, Virtuos’ Lukas Codr teased that the developer “will definitely have some exciting high-profile Switch games coming out very soon.” He said:
“For obvious reasons, we cannot say what exactly we’re working on, but we will definitely have some exciting high-profile Switch games coming out very soon. By porting Dark Souls we have proven that we can take on any Switch project, so we are confident we will get more projects in the future. As you might have seen in the last few weeks, we’ve also worked on Ubisoft’s Starlink: Battle for Atlas, which has received critical acclaim.”
Codr also said that it took a little over a year to port Dark Souls on Switch from start to finish. It initially “took us several months to get a stable playable version running, as we had to make sure that both code and data were fully compatible with the 64-bit format.” Time was also spent on “polish, enhancements and performance optimization.”
