French studio Kylotonn is hard at work on its latest rally title WRC 7, which is due to arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year. However, it would seem that many within the company are fans of the Switch, and game director Alain Jarniou has stated that he and his team are investigating development on Nintendo’s new console.
Speaking to Red Bull, Jarniou said:
Just like Nintendo used to do, with the Switch they’ve provided us with a new way of playing, and it’s very interesting. We are looking into this new platform to see how it can fit for our games in general. Everything is possible and WRC 7 might come out on the Switch if we find good matches with the game experience.
Technically, the device is quite different to other platforms. It’s exciting to see what’s behind it and what kind of possibilities it provides. We are expecting good surprises! In terms of usage, it’s also something quite new; gameplay will surely need some adaptation, but that is a good opportunity to rethink the driving experience.
Driving a rally car while on the bus can be fun, for sure!
The Switch already has some excellent racing titles in the form of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Fast RMX, but is there room for a more realistic experience on the system? Do you think a title like WRC 7 would find an audience on Nintendo’s machine? Let us know by posting a comment below.
