Ghost Town Games has already enjoyed success on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with Overcooked, and its multiplayer cooking title was confirmed for Switch some time ago.
There's plenty of scope for excitement with this indie release - it was nominated in four categories at the 2017 British Academy Games Awards - and according to the two-man team behind it, the Switch version could end up being the best.
Speaking to Red Bull Games, Ghost Town's co-founder Phil Duncan explains why Nintendo's machine is such an ideal platform for Overcooked:
I think the main attraction is the design of the console, the fact that the hardware lends itself so readily to local multiplayer. I love the fact that everyone who owns a Nintendo Switch will have access to two Joy-Con controllers right out of the box. That’s so encouraging, especially given our love of local multiplayer games.
The original release of Overcooked has a ‘split-controller’ mode which allows two players to play together using a single controller. What’s great about the Switch is that we are able to leverage that functionality by allowing players to divide the Joy-Con controllers between themselves. We’re extremely fortunate in that respect.
I also love the fact that the console is bringing gaming out of the living room. I’m so excited whenever I see someone with their Switch on the train or in a café. My favourite aspect of the Switch is definitely being able to pack up my console and take it with me wherever I go. I love being able to play Zelda on the train or Mario Kart at the airport and we’re really, really excited for people to do the same with Overcooked.
Duncan also reconfirmed to Red Bull that the Switch version will include ‘The Lost Morsel’ DLC and the Christmas-themed ‘The Festive Seasoning’. He also stated that the Nintendo version will benefit from HD Rumble support for additional feedback during play.
