I saw this news on a twitter feed story the other day and was pleasantly surprised. Also considering that I just bought a Switch to play Smash Ultimate, if I’m able to utilize my Xbox Live profile instead of creating a whole new Nintendo account, as a means of convenience, I’d be for it.
As for KI on Switch, I’m not against it either technically, but the effort to port it at this point most likely won’t happen. Iron Galaxy has moved on to other projects, and the effort to port the game to a platform that technically may not be able to run it on the given hardware specs (the Switch is pretty underpowered in comparison to the Xbox One and PS4, more in line with 360 and PS3 power) may be the deciding factor.
That’s not to say it can’t happen, as there have been ports of games for the Switch most would have called impossible (Doom and Diablo 3 for Switch), but you also probably would have to consider that next gen hardware to replace the Xbox One and PS4 is already LIKELY in development, given the hints, rumors and signs to read coming from both Microsoft and Sony. MS especially is setting up their chess pieces right now, like with the news of having some functionality with Nintendo’s platform in some undisclosed fashion, buying up multiple game studios for likely exclusives, etc., in an effort to gain back some of the dominance they lost out on this console generation.
That said, with next gen hardware certainly in development, the bigger, more ambitious hope is that instead of porting the current KI to another console, we will be getting a sequel, with proper backing and hype from MS. You could hope though that if a sequel is possibly inbound, that maybe a Switch port could be in the works, and with MS and Nintendo working so closely together now, nothing really seems off the table implausible anymore.
