THQ Nordic Wish Nintendo Pursued More “Beefy Hardware”

THQ Nordic will soon release Battle Chasers: Nightwar on Nintendo Switch, although have admitted that it has proven “a challenge to get running smoothly” on the portable console.

The publisher is also working on sci-fi action RPG ELEX, but that has proven to be “just too demanding right now” for the hardware, meaning that their only other game that is destined for the platform is Sine Mora EX.

“We’ve been in touch with [Nintendo] about Switch for more than a year, so we’ve been looking at it for our current line-up and… we look wherever it’s possible,” Reinhard Pollice, THQ Nordic’s business and product development director explained to GamesIndustry.biz.

“It’s a bit sad that they haven’t gone out with a more beefy hardware but it is what it is, so we just have to work our way around it.”

THQ Nordic also has Darksiders III in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, which would have made some sense for the console – seeing as Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders 2 saw release on Wii U, and that Nintendo Switch supports Unreal Engine 4.
