Before the Nintendo Switch Presentation, there were rumors making rounds on the internet that Nintendo is looking into VR support for its upcoming support and now the company has confirmed that Nintendo Switch will feature VR in one way or another.

Speaking with Nikkei, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said that the company is currently looking into the VR support for Nintendo Switch. He added that “if we are able to resolve the issues with playing [VR] comfortably for long hours, we will support it in one form or another”.

While supporting VR is a good step for Nintendo as it will appeal to a lot of gamers, however, the concern is the hybrid console’s hardware, will it be able to handle VR? is the main question, as this feature requires a lot of processing power.

Nintendo Switch has a lot of titles from both first-party and third-party developers for its launch line-up, however, many have raised concerns over the underwhelming third-party support for the console and now we know why is that.

During Nintendo’s Corporate Management Policy Briefing Miyamoto confirmed that it would take a year for a PC game to be ported to Nintendo Switch. According to analyst Hideki Yasuda, Miyamoto confirmed the duration during Nintendo’s Corporate Management Policy Briefing. Switch is using a Nvidia TEGRA X1 chip, the same one that powers Nvidia Shield Tv.

Which means that third-party developers require almost a year to port their games to Nintendo Switch and we will see more and more games from third-party developers in the future.

Nintendo Switch will launch on Mach 3, 2017, and will be priced at $299.99 in the US and Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild will be among the launch titles for the console.
