The hit historical RPG briefly appeared on the official Nintendo site back in January, but this was a mistake as no port was in the works.
“Someone most likely ticked the wrong box in Japan, and it looked like it was coming to Switch as well,” said Kingdom Come Deliverance developer Tobias Stolz-Zwilling.
“By that time we weren’t even thinking about the possibility. However, Nintendo Japan took this info and some Japanese media ran with it and it became the talk of the day.”
Despite this accident, fan the feedback was immensely positive. “We started to think – there’s a lot of interest, there’s a lot of buzz,” Stolz-Zwilling added.
It was this spike of interest that kickstarted the idea to bring Kingdom Come Deliverance to the Switch – inspired by the gaming community’s reaction to what was just a big mistake.
“The community feedback we got was a big drive for this project.” said Stolz-Zwilling. As a result of the feedback, Warhorse Studios partnered with developers Saber Interactive and publisher Koch Media to take the game to Switch.
In other news, screenshots for the upcoming strategy Age Of Empires IV appeared alongside a Steam page for the game, before quickly being taken down.
The screenshots and page info were uploaded to this Reddit thread, before they were removed. The Age Of Empires IV subreddit, r/aoe4, has been sharing and reacting to the new details.
