They shouldn't have said anything. No matter what they say, nintendo fans are gonna flip because they can't understand that an underpowered system is a problem to port to.
Nintendo is the only one to blame, imo. They made their choice,with all it's advantages and disavantages. That and people's expectations always running wild.
Yes, i know someone will flip at my comment too, because having an unbiased opinion is an offense. I'll say in advance, i will ignore such posts.
Temper your expectations, it's all i'm saying.
snipped for length
I am a realist, I know many games are a challenge, I know Switch versions take time. I never would have requested Doom or Wolfenstein 2 at all and never would have complained of their absence. And their presence doesn't have me up in arms demanding Battlefront 2 or Battlefield 1 or Witcher 3. Cool as those would be, those are very challenging. And I am not complaining at all about Wolfenstein 2's dev cycle cause I get it.
But DQXI? No. No, this is not acceptable. Wouldn't be on the PS4 or Xbone or PC. When you take all the elements into consideration, there is no excuse. This is on Square. And this is unacceptable.
Edit: Sorry this is such a wall of text and I'm sure you weren't trying to pick a fight, but I've seen the attitude I described far too often and it bugs me to death. And also, calling your opinion the unbiased one, implying those who disagree are biased and wrong by default came off as quite condescending and abrasive.
If i came across with a high and mighty tone, i apologise it wasn't my intention. I don't think i did, but everyone knows that if you post something critical about Nintendo here you get jumped by a pack of wolves.
You were thoughtful so i'm replying to say that i agree with you that squeenix should never have announced a switch version and should have brought the 3DS version. The switch version will probably still come, but they aren't willing to do the engine heavy lifting, wich is their legitimate choice. This statement is them trying to get pressure out.
But you know, theres a root problem on why such a modified version of the engine is required. So, it's just the reality of Nintendo's choices.
