Either way, Sony's consoles have been unpopular in Japan since the PS3. It's good news for everyone that Japanese developers can focus on a popular console again. Too many developers were wasting their resources on something like the Vita.
Global market > Japanese market. We'll see a bunch of weird Japanese niche games on Switch, but the important titles will still be PS4.
Not many businesses can survive by completely ignoring their domestic market.
Besides Monster Hunter World Playstation has lost many (console) exclusives already to the Switch, this trend will only become more noticeable as time goes on.
- Valkyria Chronicles
- Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana
- Disgaea 5
- Dragon Quest XI (the UE4 version)
- Dragon Quest Builders 1 & 2
- The Snack World: Gold Trejares
- Yokai Watch 4
- Octopath Traveler
- The World Ends With You: Final Remix
- Shin Megami Tensei V
- Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes
- Bayonetta 3
It won't surprise me at all if franchises like Persona will become multi-platform this gen either. It's also only a matter of time before Dragon Ball FigtherZ is announced for Switch.
For the first time ever a From Software game will also come to a Nintendo platform (Dark Souls Remastered).
