Virtuos believe that they can bring any current-gen game to the Nintendo Switch

In a recent interview, Virtuos senior producer Zhang Chengwei has stated that the company is now in a position to bring any PlayStation 4 or Xbox One game to the Nintendo Switch platform. The team has worked on numerous Switch ports including Dark Souls Remastered and the upcoming, The Outer Worlds. Here’s what Mr. Chengwei had to say:

 “[We] developed a clever general-purpose rendering library that allows XCOM 2 to be rendered directly on the Switch without changing the original rendering module from Unreal Engine 3,” which helped to deal with the Switch’s reduced memory (4GB–the PC version requires 7GB). “I’d say that we spent half a year just to optimise the memory, and we used many methods throughout this period, including using more efficient formats for files, removing needless memory usage, and even modifying and optimising the original console’s memory system”

“Off the back of our work on Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Dark Souls: Remastered, The Outer Worlds and the coming XCOM 2, we now have no doubt that Switch adaptations can be worked for games on any of the current generation of consoles.”

“The more games we develop for Switch, the better we get and the more we can squeeze out of the hardware,”
