11-11: Memories Retold Would Love to Have a Nintendo Switch Port but it’s a Big Technical Challenge
11-11: Memories Retold will only be released on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in November, but its developers would like a Switch version as well.
11-11: Memories Retold certainly looks like a game that would be very suitable for the Nintendo Switch, but for the moment it has been announced only for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
In order to gauge the possibility for a Switch port, we asked Creative Director Yoan Fanise and Aardman Animation Studio Producer George Rowes at Gamescom whether they’d like to give it a try.
Rowes mentioned that they would love to, but it isn’t an easy task due to technical reasons:
“We’d love to, but the graphical effect is pretty performace-heavy.”
Rowes explained that the console possibly has a little bit less power than what would be required to get the game to run for the moment. That makes it impossible to release the game at the same time as the other platforms.
Yet, if the game is successful, they’d love to make it happen. Fanise also added that it’s a “big technical challenge.” When I mentioned that this seems to be a title that would be very suitable for the console, he confirmed that he’d like to play it on Switch himself.
11-11: Memories Retold will release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 9th. If you want to know more about the game, you should check out the latest trailer.
