Dear gamers in the System Wars board

It looks like the Nintendo Switch is missing out another realistic looking racing game lolz so when the Xbox Series X and PS5 releases, what sort of future multiplat racers for Nintendo Switch to get? probably mostly cartoony racers like karts.

  • Developer: Slightly Mad Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco
  • Sub-Genre: Arcade racer (I guess)
  • Platforms: Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC
  • Release Date: Summer 2020

Description from the video:

Get ready for Your Ultimate Driver Journey. Own, upgrade and customize hundreds of elite-brand road- and race-cars, personalize your racing hero, then race your way up from weekend warrior to racing legend in stunning global locations. Project CARS 3. Summer 2020 on PS4.

I feel they won't be missing much as PC2 was underwhelming to say the least.

The Switch can't even run last-gen games properly. So, a series known for struggling on PS4 and X1 is not a good idea for the switch.

Yeah, remember how original Project Cars was cancelled for Nintendo Wii U? because the developers are not able to optimize this game to run at least 60 FPS plus the Wii U is weaker than PS4 and Xbox One combined.

don't think the crowd is even interested. Casual games like mario kart or animal crossing is what sells the best on the system.

Because most Nintendo fans are not into realistic looking driving games.

If there were a good Forza-type racing game on the Switch, I would absolutely eat that up.

Looks like they are going for a more arcade focused game this time around. It kinda makes sense though, since the sim racing community doesn't rank the Project Cars series highly when it comes to realism. We don't get many quality arcade racing games these days so hopefully they do a good job.

As for a Switch port, it would be hideous and run at a poor framerate. The Switch is a portable for all intents and purposes, so it's hard for a developer to port their game to it without reducing the quality to the point of ugliness (i.e. Doom 2016, TW3, Outer Worlds)

After the Outer World, Switch should stick to 2D and 2.5D games exclusively.

Not really?

Porting a PS4 game to Switch is kind of like porting a PS3 game to PSP.

Not every PS4/Xbox One games ported to Switch are bad.

It depends on how well the developers can do.

In reality, any half decently complex titles should never be even considered to come out on the system.

No waaaaaay!!! Who would think that a highly graphically demanding simulation game wouldn't come to a handheld console, right! Never happened before.

I doubt it.

It's rare to see a good realistic looking driving game for Nintendo systems anyway.
The best one for Switch at this moment is GRID: Autosport.

Edit: GRID series doesn't come as close to Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo series.
