One can think that this game is the closest Nintendo Switch players will get from a Soulslike experience. We believe that Negative: The Way of Shinobi has the potential to be a hit on the hybrid platform. After all, Switch is frequently may pass as a “platform for kids” due to the “happy visuals” of some Nintendo exclusives. However, this has been changing lately with the arrival of games bringing deep experiences and mature art style.
Depending on the success this game achieves, we won’t discard a launch on other platforms.
