As the Nintendo Switch continues to rise in popularity, more game developers will probably be interested in creating something for the hybrid console. However, there are still some game creators who don’t see a future with Nintendo’s hybrid console, despite its growing popularity. There are some game developers who seem interested in investing some time on the Nintendo Switch but must solve some compatibility issues first. For instance, Team Ninja seems to be interested in releasing Dead or Alive 6 on the Switch but must solve certain technical problems before the game is released on Nintendo’s portable console.
