Forbes talked to Nintendo of America Chief Operating Officer, Reggie Fils-Aime, and got his thoughts regarding third party support on the Switch. Fils-Aime mentions that Nintendo wants the best third party games from the best partners, and that each third party developer is important. His full quote below:
Every partner’s important. And our mantra is, we want the very best games from the very best developers on our platforms. That is true for as long as I’ve been with the company. What’s different is that we’ve got the two most widely used development engines out for Nintendo Switch. We are working quite closely with third party developers, giving them technical support to bring their content to the platform. Certainly the pace with which the Nintendo Switch is selling is seen as a huge opportunity by third party developers. And what they need to see is success this holiday season. That’s why FIFA is critically important. That’s why Doom and Skyrim are critically important. Each of these developers need to see a positive experience by being on Nintendo Switch. And so we’re working actively to support them.”
