Ed Boon Discusses Bringing Injustice 2 And NetherRealm Games To Nintendo Switch

But while fighting games in general have had a good year on the Switch, the console has yet to receive some love from the heavier hitters.

With Bethesda drawing a line in the sand with support for both DOOM and Wolfenstein II on Nintendo Switch, it seems more studios are recognising the potential to get their games on the hybrid console.

After all, the Switch is in need of a big fighting game, as it now has titles like Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Ultra Street Fighter II and countless Neo-Geo brawlers at the moment.

During his presentation at the Brazil Game Show, GameSpot chatted with Boon, who pointed out that there are possibilities to see Injustice 2 on Switch, although he suggested that it could be a limited version. I do think it would. "It's not going to be great, but I bet you can make something".

As the Nintendo Switch becomes increasingly popular, publishers and developers are looking to supplement the new games heading to the platform with recently released titles. And he's been exploring the idea, though nothing is official. "Yeah, actually, I do", he replied. The Nintendo Switch, after all, does feature a different hardware architecture. "I think we would need to set up something in terms of an external team".

He continued, "From the game player's perspective, would it be fun to play Injustice on (Switch)?" I do think it would. "You could have tournaments, everyone comes over with their own system and you can have whole structured tournaments and parallel gameplay and all that". And the team could easily attach a second season of characters onto it.

Injustice 2 is available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
