Bandai Namco is Ramping Up Switch Development Due To Switch’s Popularity

The Wall Street Journal Tokyo Twitter feed reports that Japanese video game publisher Bandai Namco is adding more developers to their Nintendo Switch development team. President Mitsuaki Taguchi says Bandai is looking to have more games for the Nintendo Switch console platform on the market by April 2018.

“We have put 3 games on the Switch so far and all of them are doing well. It’s a shame, but we didn’t think Switch [would] be accepted this fast.”

Nintendo last month boosted its fiscal year sales forecasts 40% to 14 million units.

Bandai Namco is responsible for a slew of anime based games including; Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, DRAGON BALL FighterZ, Ni no Kuni™ II: REVENANT KINGDOM and .hack//G.U. Last Recode.

“Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. (BNEI) (Kabushiki gaisha Bandai Namuko Entāteinmento) is an arcade, mobile and home video game publisher, based in Japan. The company also publishes video, music and other entertainment products related to its video game IPs.”
