Japanese developer Nippon Ichi Software (NIS) will look to develop multi-platform games for both PS4 and Nintendo Switch in the future, according to NIS Chief Executive Officer Sohei Shinkawa.
In a recent interview with Japanese video game publication Famitsu, Shinkawa stated:
“In Japan, we can’t just ignore the move to portable gaming consoles. Our games are well suited for portable gaming, so when you think about it, it is important for PS4 and Nintendo Switch to balance each other out and do well. With that in mind, from here on multiplatform development for PS4 and Nintendo Switch is very much a possibility.”
Shinkawa’s comments follow the recent news that a port of NIS’s Disgaea 5 is confirmed for Nintendo Switch and suggest that the developer/publisher will look to partner with Nintendo to focus on portable games in the future.
Nippon Ichi Software is renowned for developing titles for all previously released PlayStation consoles including PS Vita, in addition to a handful of developed titles for Nintendo DS and 3DS with the likes of Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, Hayarigami DS: Toshi Densetsu Kaii Jiken and Maruhan: The Pachinko Hall all releasing for Nintendo’s various handheld gaming devices in the past.
