Bethesda on Nintendo NX support – “It’s too early to say”
The annual QuakeCon is on right now and of course, Bethesda Softworks are there showing off all their latest goodies.
But could those goodies, like Doom, Quake Champions or something like the remastered Skyrim (which has never been on a Nintendo platform) come to the upcoming NX?
Speaking to finder.com.au, Peter Hines’ Vice President of Bethsda offered up the companies current position on the illusive console.
We talk to Nintendo all the time – we’re pretty well briefed in on what they are doing. It’s definitely something we will look at; and our philosophy is that we will put our games out on any format that supports the games as we envisage and make them. If the NX fits that from a technical standpoint, and fits the game that a developer in our stable is making, I don’t see why we would not put it out on NX. But it’s too early to say, ‘we’ll definitely be putting games out or not.’ Like with mobile, we want to have the right fit for the right formats.
While this sounds overly positive, it is a fairly diplomatic answer, they’re not going to outright say no to the thing – especially this far out but stop short of offering any sort of real support.
The mention of mobile is interesting, could something smaller like Fallout Shelter come to the NX, especially if it’s not as powerful as the rest?
Portable Doom would be freaking amazing right?
