Insomniac Games Has “No Plans” to Port Song of the Deep to Nintendo Switch
While smaller indie titles are already finding a niche on Nintendo’s fledgling home console, Nintendo Switch, some developers still have no plans to port older titles over. Point being, when a fan asked Insomniac Games if the 2016 Metroidvania Song of the Deep would be coming to Nintendo Switch, they replied:
@prwilliford We have no plans for that.

Song of the Deep is less than a year old, launching in mid-July on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Developed by Insomniac Games and published by GameTrust Games (the publishing arm of GameStop), the game received average reviews from critics. DualShockers gave Song of the Deep an 8.5 out of 10, noting any “Insomniac Games or Metroidvania fan probably won’t be disappointed by picking this game up and trying it out.”
Insomniac Games isn’t the only studio to flash their tentativeness in the new console — Project CARS developer Slightly Mad Studios, BioWare, and others have prominently stated they don’t yet have current projects for Nintendo Switch. However, other indie developers like Psyonix (Rocket League) and Koji Igarashi (Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night) have been less skeptical, further fueled by Nintendo’s out-of-the-gate sales successes.
