    That third party support is going strong, eh, Nintendo?

    Night Trap was originally planned to be released on the Nintendo Switch but two days later Nintendo randomly decided to refuse. No exact reason has been given but who wants to guess it's because the game is "too mature" for Nintendo's audience? ;)

    Night Trap will be receiving a remastered release (SD high quality) on PS4 for those interested.

    This brings up a really good question, how many other games has Nintendo said no from being published on the Switch? No one knows for sure.

    I don't really know enough about the game to disagree with Nintendo. Sure it's a famous game, but so is ET for atari.

    "Night Trap will never appear on a Nintendo Console." Nintendo of America President, Howard Lincoln during the 1994 congressional hearings on video game violence.

    Well at least they're honest.

    Is there *any* good reason for this?

    Maybe Howard Lincoln chimed in for one last game rejection.

    I guess SMB Lost Levels, Bio Miracle Uppa, and Lunar Chase (the 3D shooter on the Game Boy known as "X" in Japan) were not enough.

    Why the fuck are you moaning about the switch not getting one of the worst games ever made??? Have you ever played it before?? Because if you had you would not have made this awful thread.

    This thing is gonna sell on decades old infamy alone, if it even sells at all. Calling this game's themes "edgy" or "controversial" in this zeitgeist is like calling milk spicy, and FMV is nothing special anymore, so what exactly is going to sell this game? Infamy and nostalgia is all I can guess. This game made so many waves in the past that the publisher still thinks they can ride them today, and I can't say for certain they're wrong. I can't exactly imagine anyone really wanting to buy and play this, but that doesn't mean there won't be enough people who will to turn a profit.

    Again though it's one of the worst games ever. Supporting it would just lead to more shit games being ported.

    Again, it's your opinion, not a fact.

    Violent or not, I think Nintendo made the right choice.

    It's the opinion of the vast majority people who have played it including the main stream press and the general public.

    So they also made the right choice by allowing Chicken Range?

    This game has a strong following since its early days and besides, there's far more praise to it than criticism. You're basically the only person I've seen bashing the game in ages.

    Answer the question.

    No, the Switch needs games and with Nintendo doing this shit it just limits how many the customers can get.

    I never said anything about Chicken Range, have no idea what it is, and have no opinion about it.

    Is there any reason why this is a problem?
