The Evil Within 2 is a third-person horror game from Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Games Studios, and is currently set to release next month on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 13, which is fittingly Friday the 13th. As with many new games, there are some people online that want the game to come to the Nintendo Switch. This is also apparently something the game’s Producer Shinji Mikami woul like to do, as he revealed to GameSpot in a recent interview.

Shinji thinks a Switch version of the game would be “interesting”, and comments that he’d be willing to do it if given the opportunity. That being said, he actually doesn’t own a Switch yet, revealing that he had to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on a co-workers device:

“I think a Switch version would be interesting. I’d like to try it if I had the chance. First I’d like to buy a Switch myself, I had to borrow Zelda with the Switch from another staff member to play it.”

While it doesn’t seem like Bethesda is currently planning to port The Evil Within 2 to Nintendo Switch, they are bringing three of their other titles to the platform: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, DOOM, and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. 

The Evil Within 2 is currently poised to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 13. If you want to see DualShockers’ pre-release thoughts on the game, you can check out our preview of the game.
