#The Evil Within 2” is the direct sequel to the first game that first released on Oct. 2014 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Despite the first game's flaws, fans and critics praised it for being a solid horror game. That said, game producer #Shinji Mikami will release the second game next month on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, it also seems like he’s also interested in porting the game over to the #Nintendo Switch.

Horror on the go

Mikami recently sat down for an interview with GameSpot where he mentioned that a Switch version of “The Evil Within 2” would be “interesting.” He claimed that if he had the chance, he would like to try and port the game to the hybrid console.

While this isn’t a confirmation that the horror game will be heading over to Nintendo’s latest system, it’s a good sign that the producer would like to see it happen.

That said, Mikami admitted that he would personally like to buy a Switch. He had to borrow the console and “Breath of the Wild” from another staff member just to play. The Switch shortage still seems to be quite rampant in Japan, but more consumers are slowly getting their hands on Nintendo’s hybrid console.

More games being ported over

Several other game developers have also expressed their interest over the Switch. While Square Enix isn’t bringing over “Final Fantasy XV,” they’re making an entirely new game called “Project Octopath Traveler” for the system. Similarly, “The Evil Within 2’s” publishing company, Bethesda, is even porting games like “Doom,” “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus,” and “Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” onto the Switch.

It seems like Nintendo is trying their best to bring over third-party games to their console.

Despite the Switch’s power, it’s a pretty powerful unit that can run modern games, although with some slight compromises. The console’s main selling point is its portability as players can either dock the system to play on the TV or play games anywhere using the tablet mode.

The hybrid console still has a limited library at the moment, but Nintendo is slowly filling the gap with their own games. Titles like “Super Mario Odyssey,” “Xenoblade 2,” and “Fire Emblem Warriors” are slated to release later this year. Moreover, they’ve already announced a new “Pokemon” game and “Metroid Prime 4” for the Nintendo Switch. While it’s still too early to determine the system’s success, it’s doing much better than its failed Wii U predecessor.
