    I don't see why there hasn't been an announcement for a Switch version. One would think it could handle a game like this. Who knows, Ubisoft has their own E3 conference, maybe an announcement is forthcoming. I really hope it does make it to the Switch.

    Because nintendo players doesnt like mature or this kind of games on their consoles, let alone the other third party stuff they dont buy and that does not sell on nintendo platforms... But don't worry, you will get mario vs the rabbits.

    That's just silly, and obviously not true. Nintendo has been very supportive of Mature games in the past, just look at Bayonetta. Plus Ubisoft is a big fan of Nintendo, I'm sure that if this game is coming to the Switch, its just coming later because they weren't able to work on it at the start of production since it wasn't around yet. I really wouldn't be surprised if we see an announcement for it at Ubisoft's E3. Also I am genuinely intrigued by that Mario/Rabbids game lol, could be good, could be terrible haha.

    Well, they had been getting stuff like Call of Duty on the Wii and Wii U, so I'd rather call it laziness.

    I'm too slow lol

    Bayonetta, yeah... and it didn't sell that well, maybe it did "decently", maybe...
    Activision gave up with cod on nintendo platforms. Almost no one bought bo2 or ghosts on wii u. MW3 Did worse that bo1 on wii. Nintenfo fans dont like shooters or most of third party releases. Ubisoft ports on the wii u did horrible and they clearly blamed on nintendo.

    Nay-say all you want. We'll see. Seems pointless to argue over what one of us thinks will happen and one of us thinks wont happen when we simply put don't know.
    But yeah, 3rd parties did bad on the Wii U cuz no one had it and it was too underpowered, not at all relevant to a game like this on the Switch. So its pretty easy to disregard that aspect of it all. The Wii and Gamecube had their fair share of Mature games as well. So again, we'll see. Point is, I'd love to play this game at home or on the go.

    A better way to have worded it is that Nintendo is very picky with the amount and type of "mature" content that they want to allow on their system. Look at the binding of isaac for example. That game got denied multiple times due to the crude humor and religious themes in it. South park doesn't just have basic mature humor they go above and beyond.

    So? I already said the Wii U was a failure, so of course it didn't do well. That doesn't mean for a second to me that Nintendo wouldn't want to do another Bayonetta game on the Switch. Frankly I'd be shocked if they had no interest in more Bayonetta.

    I happen to know someone working on this game. Seems like a bit of a mess. Trey Parker and Matt Stone have a big part in the production of this and if they lag, development lags.

    Really? I remember this being showed off last year, I think at E3, showed off in some convention. Hopefully won't get pushed back again. I'd dust off the PS4 for this.
