In theory: can the full Call of Duty experience transition to a Nintendo console?
The soaring popularity of Nintendo’s Switch has caught the gaming world by surprise. It’s a console that’s not just for gaming purists, but for casual gamers and even non-gamers. The Switch has something for everyone.
Now, with the recent announcement of Microsoft’s plans to buy Activision Blizzard, there’s been speculation that the full Call of Duty experience could transition to a Nintendo console.
It’s no secret that the Switch is underpowered compared to the Xbox One and PS4. So, can the full Call of Duty experience really make the transition to a Nintendo console?
The answer is: it depends.
There are some Call of Duty games that would transition just fine to the Switch. For example, Call of Duty: WWII is a more simplistic game that doesn’t require the extra horsepower that the more recent games do.
On the other hand, games like Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare would be a harder sell. The Switch just doesn’t have the horsepower to run Infinite Warfare’s more demanding graphics.
So, it really depends on the game. Some will make the transition just fine, while others will be a harder sell.
Ultimately, it’s up to Activision and Nintendo to decide if the full Call of Duty experience can transition to a Nintendo console. If they can make it work, it could be a great way to bring even more gamers into the fold.
