Well, so the fuck much for that. Bandai just kneecapped the Switch version. And you can 1000% expect that the marketing focus will completely shift now to PS4 and they'll probably barely bother to mention the Switch version when they release it quietly like an unwanted puppy being tossed out of a parked car on the side of the road. Unless Nintendo fully funds the marketing, the game will be a virtual stealth launch. And if it launches in June or July, it will get completely buried.

Also further exposes the fact that Bandai can't be assed to treat the platform even close to equally since you know damn well that if the PS4 version had a game breaking bug, all versions would be delayed. But here we have the Switch being the lead version in promotion and the first version announced and yet it will be the last one launched.

Bandai just seems determined to remain the most disappointing and disrespectful third party on Switch.

That is one hell of a pity party. Can I just come in, or  is there a cover charge at the door?

Do you know what went wrong? Do you secretly work for Bandai? Without any information is is pretty embarrassing to go on such a rant about a company.

Maybe wait until we get a little information before going all conspiracy theory about Bandai wanting to sink the Switch?

The game looks identical to the PS360 version except at 1080p and a much more stable framerate.  It's a port of a seven year old game and they can't get it out in time and that's just plain sad.

And look,  I'm not a Souls fan.  I have tried to get into it and just can't, I probably won't buy this on any platform.  I'm just incredibly sick and tired of this nonsense.  This is the second year and this game is ancient, there's no reason it should miss May 25th.

And I don't think there's any conspiracy.  I think they just screwed up and clearly, CLEARLY don't have the Switch prioritized nearly as high as they claim they do.  It's patently obvious at this point.  Everyone knows the PS4 and Xbone get the same release date, always, unless one strikes a deal for exclusivity.  They get treated equally.  The Switch doesn't, ever.  And of course that hurts their sales and I will not be shocked at all if they wine and complain about those sales.

And I'm also tired of Bandai Namco.  They talked up their 2018 Switch support, promising game after game after game would be announced.  And here we are and their most noteworthy 2018 game is a 7 year old port that they can't even launch on time.  Nothing else noteworthy announced for the system.  After basically telling people to buy Xenoverse 2 to get FighterZ, after telling people to go "make their voices heard" and hype up Project Cars 2 if they wanted it on Switch (spoiler warning, that was never even possible), after making a big song and dance about how they were going to be serious about the Switch in 2018, this is all they've got and they can't even do that right.

Why is that everytime when people get pissed at a publisher, and with reason, the other side that dosent care that much for that game on that system just screams "Stop this conspiracy talk"?

Nuvendil probably explained much better than me, but I dont know, maybe its just incopetence in their side?I mean, not only was this already announced with a release date, but it was the version that was getting the most marketing push out of all versions.In those instances, i think its normal to assume that they have a schedule planned, and have already covered for any unforeseen event that may happen.Why cant other publishers be like Bethesda and dont stick to a release date until they are certain they can release it on that day....

Oh, and this "rant" applies to all companies, all games, and to all consoles.

Ranting and raving about things without information tends to be scope of conspiracy theories. Specially when you see comments like "how much did sony pay you" which you can find in the twitter thread.

It was a game they weren't even trying to hit 60FPs, and were hoping to hit 720 in docked mode.

The systems that could hit 1080p60FPS or higher aren't being delayed.

Coincidence? Who knows - we don't have any information. So jumping in and blaming Bandai as if this was their plan all along to screw over Switch is just weird. Specially when there is a much likelier chance it is because the Switch, specially undocked, is underpowered.

Lets discuss a possibility. Which do you prefer, May 25th on game that can't even hit 20 FPS docked, or Summer for a game hitting 30FPS perfectly.

I much prefer the company delay a game and work on it, instead of trying to rush it out.

We've seen loads of footage, the Switch version is a port running at a higher res.  The PS4 and Xbone versions might be easier but they can't possibly be much easier since they have new assets and actual work being done beyond just porting a 7 year old game.  We've even seen the most demanding area in the original game running at a stable framerate.  The fact is the difference is the PS4 and Xbone version are being ported by the developers with the full backing of Bandai Namco and apparently even some other outside help.  The Switch version was farmed out.  And going by this delay, probably not given a large ammount of resources.  The Switch is indeed markedly weaker than the PS4.  But it eats the PS360 for breakfast.  This port shouldnot be an issue.

And yeah Twitter is full of those kinds of accusations because Twitter is full of morons who can't filter themselves and encourages speaking without thinking.  

It's not a conspiracy, it's Bandai not being assed to put in any significant resources.

Considering people on Xbox and PS were able to play it before on the original version it would make sense for Switch to sell more because of people that will have the 1st experience... but because of the type of game, I think PS4 will still have most sales.
