For most third-party developers, asking if their game will appear on the latest Nintendo console will result in a PR-laden “no” or maybe a “we’ll see” if you’re lucky. Respawn Entertainment senior designer Mohammad Alavi must not have gotten this memo when he was asked if Titanfall would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.
In an interview with Drunk Tech Review, Alavi got brutally honest about whether or not you’d be able to play Titanfall on the Nintendo Switch. Here’s a transcript of the interview by NeoGAF user perfectchaos007:
Mohammad Alavi: …I was excited about it. Nintendo’s been in such a niche market recently, catering to the handheld and the kids, they’ve been so underpowered that they don’t have the support of the third parties because they’re all making for the PC, Xbox One and PS4, and it’s no different.
Micha: I am going to drink to it mainly because, I understand. It will be underpowered. I’m not going to be able to play Titanfall on it. Like, can you tell me?
Mohammad: **** no! No, you’re not going to be able to fit Titanfall 2 on the Nintendo Switch. That’s the same Zelda from the Wii U?
What do you think about his response? Would you have liked to play Titanfall on the Switch or do you have other platforms for that?
