Bethesda has shown a surprising amount of support for the Nintendo Switch, far more than they have for most consoles from the Big N. We've known about Skyrim coming since day one, and last week they announced that DOOM and the upcoming Wolfenstein II are also heading to the console-handheld hybrid. Now we're hearing that there's interest in bringing yet another Bethesda-published title to Nintendo's platform: The Evil Within 2. Nothing is confirmed yet, but given the man who's expressing interest, it could definitely happen.
GameSpot recently interviewed Shinji Mikami, the director of the original The Evil Within—not to mention the creator of both it and the Resident Evil franchise—who is working as the sequel's producer. We don't know exactly what all was discussed just yet, but at some point the possibility of The Evil Within 2 coming to Switch was brought up, and Mikami said in no uncertain terms that he'd like to try porting it there.
"I think a Switch version would be interesting. I'd like to try it if I had the chance." — Shinji MIkami
Again, that's obviously not confirmation, but it could happen if Mikami pushes for it, especially given Bethesda's recent announcements. There is one potential holdup, though, in that Mikami—like so many of us—has yet to be able to get a Switch for himself, having had to borrow a coworker's in order to try out it and Breath of the Wild. Apparently he liked what he saw, but he still wants his own copy of the console before working on a port.
"First I'd like to buy a Switch myself. I had to borrow Zelda with the Switch from another staff member to play it." — Shinji Mikami
A horror game like The Evil Within 2 being on a Nintendo platform feels absurd to me, but then, the idea of DOOM and Wolfenstein coming to the console are equally unbelievable, and those are both happening. Would you like to see The Evil Within 2 make the jump as well? Let us know in the comments!
