Thanks for bringing it to Switch, Namco. Now do the same for the Ni no Kuni games.

I agree very much with this. The Ni no kuni games would be a perfect addition for Switch, really. Not graphic heavy games and the first one on PS3 would look pretty much the same on Switch.

Hopefully they also port One Piece World Seeker and Jump Force when they come out.

Nintendo Switch is wanna be PS3 console. A weak system and limitation power. I have a Nintendo Switch for some reasons but I have a PS3, PS4, soon to be PS5 owner. Nintendo Switch 3rd party dont seems to make their own brand new games for its system like PS4. All they do is find weak games with limitation power and port to Nintendo Switch. Bad decision. Nintendo still dont learn anything from Sony PS4 at all. Tsk tsk.
