Yakuza Confirms No Love For Nintendo Switch!

By  | 

What is there not to like about the Nintendo Switch? The hybrid console continues to amaze the world with its unique gaming approach but much like previous consoles from Nintendo, the Switch is inferior on the hardware-end of things.

The good news here is that the performance of the Switch is still enough to operate some AAA multiplatform third-party titles. The bad news, however, is that not all AAA games can get ported to the Switch and the latest to join this list is Yakuza.

The Yakuza Series has grown to become a hardware-intensive title and there is a clear demand for the game to get ported over to the Nintendo Switch. Today, the game producer for Yakuza revealed that it can’t be done due to the Switch inferiority in the hardware department.

The producer explained that porting Yakuza is not as simple as lowering graphic qualities as the game is continuously operating heavily in the background. A Switch’s version of Yakuza will need to get built from the ground up and it’s not something worth venturing into.
