Ed Boon Talks Bringing Injustice 2 to the Nintendo Switch
Creative director of NetherRealm Studios, Ed Boon, believes that the hit game, Injustice 2 and other NetherRealm games could be brought to gamers using the Nintendo Switch console.
While attending the Brazil Game Show, Boon said, “Yeah, I think at the end of the day you can make almost any game… there are inevitable compromises, but you know, you can make some version of Injustice on the Atari 2600.”
Chatting specifically about the Nintendo Switch, Boon agreed that there would be some major hardware differences due to the difference in the Nintendo gaming system in comparison to the PlayStation console. Boon stated, “It is a pretty different hardware architecture; it’s not like you can go from a PlayStation 4 to a Switch really easily. So I think we would need to set up something in terms of an external team. 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.”
However, the creative director believes that playing Injustice 2 on the Nintendo Switch would be fun. Boon said:
“From the game player’s perspective, would it be fun to play Injustice on [Switch]? I do think it would. You could have tournaments, everyone comes over with their own system and you can have whole structured tournaments and parallel gameplay and all that.”
