The Switch is already home to a number of iconic fighting game series, so what are chances of Bandai Namco's Soul Calibur series making the transition? In a translated interview with DualShockers at this year's Gamescom, SoulCalibur VI producer Motohiro Okubo said the game was currently not in development for Switch, but didn't entirely rule out the chances of the long-running fighting series coming to the system in the future:
At the moment there is no development for Switch at all. I understand that the Switch is a very successful hardware, and of course if there is a possibility, then it would be great to do it.
At the moment we’re focusing on the October 19th launch, so we don’t even have the time to think about that possibility. After the launch we’ll think about the possibility.
Nintendo's Switch already has a great collection of fighting games, with SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy and Dragon Ball FighterZ due out next month, and Nintendo's very own Super Smash Bros. Ultimate available later this year. It shows there's always room for more fighting games in the future.
