While everyone loves a huge 3D adventure, 2D games and top down games have traditionally been designated to handheld Nintendo platforms instead of the home console side of things. With the Nintendo Switch though, the lines have been blurred from handheld to home console with the hybrid system, so could we see top down games on the system from Nintendo? Or more games in the style of Yoshi for the Switch? In a recent interview Yoshiaki Koizumi, he spoke on this:
I wouldn’t necessarily consider a top-down Zelda or a side-scrolling Metroid games that have to be on a handheld, and there are of course people who like those kinds of games. And I think for Nintendo Switch I could definitely imagine those types of games appearing for it. At E3 this year a new side-scrolling Yoshi title was announced, and I imagine that going forward those types of games will be able to be played at home or on the go.
