Soul Calibur VI Producer Wants To Bring Game To Switch

Producer Motohiro Okubo is eyeing Nintendo's new console for the bladed brawler's next iteration. 


While there's no planned release for Soul Calibur VI on the Nintendo Switch, it doesn't mean that all hope is lost that the long-running fighter series won't someday, somehow make its way there.

While speaking with Metro, Soul Calibur VI Producer, Motohiro Okubo stated he was interested in the possibility of releasing a Switch version of the game; it's just that the Switch didn't exist when they began development. "SoulCalibur VI development started more than three years ago. And nobody knew anything about Switch back then. So, as a matter of fact we are not working on Switch, as of now. But of course, personally, I’m interested in the platform. So if the Unreal Engine can adapt to Switch, and evolve itself, then maybe the possibility will be more."

With the recent news that the Nintendo Switch has already sold 10 million units, it wouldn't be a bad idea. And plenty of other third-party titles have sold very well on Nintendo's latest console including the recent release of Skyrim. As it stands now, Soul Calibur VI will be making its way onto Xbox One, PS4 and Microsof Windows in 2018.

      If they are able to make a Switch version I can't help but wonder if we'll go back to the SCII days of having a guest character exclusive to each platform. Link for Switch, maybe a Bloodborne hunter for PS4, and a Killer Instinct character for XBone/PC?

        Xbox should be master chef or Blinx the Time Sweeper

          Master Chef would be awesome... wielding a very dangerous spatula indeed.

      The real question is if the switch is powerful enough to render boob physics.
