In a recent interview with Issuu, NIS America President Takuro Yamashita shared that their games were selling 2 to 1 on Nintendo Switch as compared to PS4.
This means for the same title that NIS America offers on PS4 and Switch, the Switch version sells twice as much as the PS4 version. Yamashita also commented about how Nintendo supports NIS America in a good way, while Sony is “not friendly with small publishers”.
Check out his full comments below.
We’re starting to do more on Nintendo Switch. SNK Heroines is not the only one. They support us in a good way. Compared to that, Sony is not friendly with small publishers like us. They just care about big Japanese companies. Also, if we simultaneously release a Switch version and a PS4 version of the same title, currently the sales trend is two to one. That means the Switch version sells twice as much as the PS4 version. Physically and digitally. A lot of PS4 titles are coming up, so the market is very competitive. Compared to that, the Switch market still has lots of room for publishers to make money.
