Well, this is quite a turn around from five, even 10 years ago. More and more games are being ported to the Nintendo Switch, and more requests are being made than ever to port games to the Switch. Panic Button is one of those studios who has made a huge impact. They ported DOOM to Switch as well as Rocket League, two of the most highly regarded ports on the system.

The Director of Development for Panic Button, Adam Creighton, recently teased that the studio has more games in the works for the system in an interview with Gamasutra.

You know that meme? With the dog? Drinking from a sprinkler? That’s me right now. And we might have some other titles for that platform, and maybe some other games for other platforms, in the works. In terms of volume, I’m in this amazing place where as a studio we get to choose how we want to grow, and with whom, and with what projects. My biggest challenge lately is not which projects do we pick to retarget to other platforms, but managing the other parts of our portfolio, picking the different projects that are exciting to different people in the studio, and being responsible about what I want to work on, versus what is best for the studio.

The Switch release has been perfect. Actually it’s mentioned in almost all the port requests we receive. To keep up with this pace, we already have 12 kits at the office! Not yet the platform with the most kits, but definitely the fastest growing trend in our office. In the games we have published we’ve seen more sales on Switch than on PS4 and XBox One combined during the same period. Now every developer wants their game to be on the Switch.”

Now every developer wants their game to be on the Switch. That’s quite a strong statement!

Hopefully, this leads an even better game library for the Nintendo Switch in the future.
