Feature parity is a very important discussion topic when it comes to multi-platform games heading to Nintendo Switch.
NBA 2K18, which is arriving on Switch next week, is one such game that has been frequently talked about. NBA 2K18 senior producer Rob Jones explains that the game is exactly the same as it was on PS4 and Xbox One, and how the developers made it their priority to ensure it happens that way.
Well the main thing that our president said from day one is that the Switch had to be the same exact game that was on PS4 and Xbox One, so by starting there, you know, the bar was already set extremely high, because we were already working really, really hard just to get it on platforms we already knew, and then suddenly to take that and miniaturise it for the portable, you know, the portable Switch (obviously it also plays when it’s docked), but to get all those features working on there was kind of a gargantuan task.
We actually had a second team just dedicated only to doing the Switch version just because it would have been impossible within the confines of VC […] So obviously we delivered a good experience. It’s not the same exact graphics because the Switch can’t push them, you know, but the experience itself – you’re not missing out on anything from the Switch version [compared] to the main consoles version.
