Bandai Namco working on three new Switch exclusives

Even though some companies are taking Switch development slowly (to say the least), others are finally starting to realise just how popular the Switch is.

During a recent financial briefing,¬†Mitsuaki Taguchi, the president of Bandai Namco Holdings Inc., has said that the company plans to further support Switch development, with plenty of resources allocated to developing for Nintendo’s latest console.¬†Speaking on the popularity of the console, Taguchi said that they didn’t expect the Switch to be successful so quickly:

‚ÄúWe have put out three games on the Switch so far and all of them are doing well. It‚Äôs a shame, but we didn‚Äôt think the Switch [would] be accepted this fast.‚ÄĚ

He also stated that all of Bandai’s properties could “see product made available for Switch,” which certainly opens up a lot of doors. Bandai Namco holds a lot of franchises, from Tekken and Dragon Ball to Power Rangers and Digimon, with just about everything you could imagine in between, so the possibilities are near-endless.

On top of this, it was also revealed that Bandai Namco will be announcing three new Switch exclusives in 2018, between Spring and Summer (Autumn and Winter, respectively, for us down south). There’s no telling what these games could be, but we’ll be sure to bring you any and all news as it comes.

Are you excited to hear about these new games? Do you think other publishers should follow suit? Let us know in the comments below!
