Now, No Man’s Sky is coming to the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is a pretty impressive device for its size, but we can’t deny that it’s still underpowered compared to the competition. This makes it difficult for studios to make games cross-compatible with it and the current systems from Sony and Microsoft. Regardless, people are still able to port games over to the portable system. A game as expansive as No Man’s Sky seems like it would be too much for the Switch to handle, but it looks like that’s not true.
Despite being a few years old, No Man’s Sky is still in high demand. There’s good news if you’ve wanted to play it but haven’t have the necessary hardware. The Verge reports that No Man’s Sky will be available for the Nintendo Switch. No Man’s Sky is a great example when discussing emotional ups and downs. This game received a tonne of controversy when it first came out, which turned off a lot of players. There is a large list of issues with the game, however everything has already been fixed by the developer.
Hello Games announced that its massive space exploration game will be launching on the Switch in October 7th. Now, In February this year, the studio announced that it would launch sometime in the summer, so it’s coming a bit later than we expected, but not by much. Hello Games team member Sean Murray said that porting the game to the Switch is “both completely natural and also totally improbable at the same time… but I think this team never seems happier than when they are trying to do near-impossible things.”
In other gaming news: SEGA is launching a multiplayer shooter named ‘Hyenas’. SEGA partnered with Creative Assembly, the studio behind Alien Isolation, to bring a new multiplay shooter called Hyenas. This game will involve a creative cast of colorful characters. They’ll shoot their way through the competition en route to securing merch and robbing the rich Matian billionaires in zero-gravity combat.
So yeah, porting the game to the Switch is really hard. The Switch can produce some beautiful graphics, but they’re the kind of graphics that you’d see on a later Xbox 360 or PS3 game. Putting No Man’s Sky on the Switch is probably causing the team to burn through some serious coffee. We’ll see this game hit the Switch in a couple of months, so we’ll have to see how it performs when that time.
