But while fighting games in general have had a good year on the Switch, the console has yet to receive some love from the heavier hitters. But some fans can't help but wonder - will the Nintendo Switch get a chance to check it out? We've already seen some traditional 2D fighting games released for it, but those have primarily come in the form of older titles like Street Fighter II and Neo Geo classics. But Injustice 2 would hit the spot.
"Yeah, I think at the end of the day you can make nearly any game...there are inevitable compromises, but you know, you can make some version of Injustice on the Atari 2600", he said. "It's not going to be great, but I bet you can make something". "Yeah, actually, I do", he noted.
While he concedes that it "might not be easy", he does explain the benefits of the Switch platform, stating "From the game player's perspective, would it be fun to play Injustice?". The Nintendo Switch, after all, does feature a different hardware architecture. "I know on the art team, we have enough people to do three console SKUs, and that would be something we'd need to work out". "I do think it would", he continued.
That's far from an official confirmation, but it certainly sounds like it's an idea that has been kicked around the studio: "You could have tournaments, everyone comes over with their own system and you can have whole structured tournaments and parallel gameplay and all that". And the team could easily attach a second season of characters onto it.
That might even extend to Injustice 2, NetherRealm's latest fighter that's now available on PS4 and Xbox One.
