If it was happening on PS4. Bayo 2 would be on that disc this month instead of VanQuish.
Bayo is an IP SEGA licenses to Nintendo.
W101 is a Nintendo game co-owned by Platinum
This rumoured situation with w101 has zero bearing on the Bayo series moving to another platform.
Why wouldn't Nintendo buy the right for the games by make it as their IP and make it exclusive's for Switch???
Maybe they don't see the use in the IP.
Maybe their good working relationship with Platinum was a factor.
Like, you didn't see MS try to continue making new Alan Wake games right?
And Sony doesn't make PixelJunk games anymore because they sold off the IP.
This idea that companies want IP because it somehow gives them more games makes zero sense. A useless IP is a useless IP and if Nintendo feels that what W101 is then it would be better to give it to Platinum who do seem interested in it.
