The makers of Professor Layton are eager to bring the franchise to Nintendo Switch, but there’s an obstacle blocking their way.
In an interview with Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino, Hino professes his love for Switch, and outlines the problem they need to solve to bring Professor Layton to Switch.
“I played Zelda. I love the Switch. I think it’s amazing hardware. The problem is, the Layton series does a lot with the touchscreen and pointing. So, the problem with the Switch is, if you play on handheld you can do it, but if you put it on the dock (you can’t use the touchscreen)… we’re trying to figure out how that would play into it.”
The team at Level-5 are working hard in finding a workaround to this problem. The sooner they find a solution, the sooner we’ll get to see Professor Layton on Nintendo Switch.
