Comments regarding developing games for Nintendo Switch

Aizu also talked about his impression on developing games on Nintendo Switch.
Blaster Master Zero is developed and published by Inti Creates for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch. The game is a remake of Sunsoft’s Blaster Master for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and was released in March 2017. When Blast Master Zero started is development, it Nintendo Switch was not announced yet,so it was only suppose to be released for 3DS. How were they able to release it this early on Switch then?

Aizu says that’s because he was able to transfer the engine relatively quickly since Blast Master runs on the same engine as Gunvolt. He also told us that transferring PC games to switch is easy, and it only takes about $500 to buy all the equipment necessary to do so.
