In an interview with the tech website WCCFtech, developer RockFishGames talked about their shift from the mobile market in the realm of PC/Consoles, and more importantly, outlined the current progress being made on the Nintendo Switch version of their massive single-player space simulator, Everspace.

"For a team with its root in mobile gaming, we are super excited about the Switch, naturally. We have always loved the ubiquity of mobile gaming devices in general, and the Switch even comes with proper analog controllers which is very much needed if you want to have a proper console-style experience on the go – as much fun it was to play Galaxy on Fire 1 and 2 on smartphones and tablets, touch controls have never been the best fit for a 6DOF space shooter.

More importantly, Nintendo’s DNA has always been a great “mobile” gaming experience with a premium pricing policy keeping the perceived value of its games at console level and keeping the platform from being cluttered by too many shovelware. The success of the Switch proved Nintendo right, and we have started looking into an Everspace port a few weeks ago.

Now, while I cannot share any further details about a release date or pricing, I definitely can share that our mobile gaming background already paid off: Everspace runs super smoothly, and it looks just gorgeous on the device. We still have to optimize the performance when running on the big screen, but we are getting there. So, stay tuned for more!"
