No Man's Sky May Come to Nintendo Switch

Hello Games studio founder Sean Murray is interested to see No Man's Sky being ported on Nintendo Switch.

Even after having a disappointing launch on PC and PlayStation 4, developer/publisher Hello Games have managed to turn things around with action-adventure survival game No Man's Sky by delivering promised features through series of updates.

Soon, they are about to introduce enhanced multiplayer and VR support in latest major update Beyond for free. Lately, game director/studio founder Sean Murray talked about possible potential of a Nintendo Switch version of NMS.

When asked about a Switch port of their expansive sci-fi game in an interview, Sean Murray had the following to say.

It's super interesting, I love the Switch. We're obviously very focused on what we're doing right now, but we have done a lot of work for PSVR to optimize the game. So I'd be interested to see what's possible. But at the moment, we're just very focused on what we're doing right now.

Rather than outright dismissing the idea, Murray interested in seeing a Switch version for No Man's Sky space epic. However, their hands are pretty tight at this moment working on frequently requested features and optimization.

Although many modern-day games may seem too complex for Nintendo handheld hardware, recent Switch port for The Witcher 3 of CD Projekt Red has proved that games with intense visual can run on the console considerably well.

With their small team of developers, Hello Games is tirelessly working on making good on their word and what not. So, they can simply partner-up with another company with resources to handle Nintendo Switch release of NMS on their behalf.

On August 14, Beyond is launching to be available for all No Man's Sky players free of charge and seeing debut of retail disc for PS4 version. Stepping into Switch platform will be good idea for the game since it will gain more audience reach.
