Nintendo finally revealed its upcoming console Nintendo Switch, and also revealed dozens of third party publisher and developers partnering with Nintendo for the console. However, it seems that Bioware won’t be bringing Mass Effect Andromeda for Nintendo Switch.

A fan asked Micheal Gamble, producer for Mass Effect Andromeda, if Mass Effect Andromeda will be available for Nintendo Switch. To this he replied “PC, PS4, Neo (PS4 Pro), X1”. He further clarified that “I can’t speak for the future. Just the current plans”.

Speaking of third party developers bringing their games to Nintendo Switch, Epic Games has announced Unreal Engine 4 support for Nintendo Switch. Epic Games revealed that it would be partnering with Nintendo to help developers bring their games to Nintendo Switch in Unreal Engine 4.

While the console has been revealed, but still there is a lot that is yet to be revealed about the console, like its specs and features. However, the fans have been wondering since the reveal that will the console function similar to that of Wii U’s GamePad or not.

But Nintendo has clarified that their upcoming console is designed for a single display experience so it will not function like a Wii U’s GamePad.

Also Nintendo has detailed the backwards compatibility and battery life for their upcoming console. According to Nintendo, the console will not support Wii U and Nintendo 3DS’ physical media, so their games will not be backwards compatible. However, there is still a possibility that digital versions of the game will be backwards compatible.

As for the battery timing, the company revealed that the battery timing for Nintendo Switch is quite long, as the console was designed so that users could play games as long as possible, even at those places where users don’t have access to a power outlet.

Nintendo Switch will be available in March 2017, however, no specific date or price has been announced by Nintendo.
