With Nintendo’s successful showcase at E3 2017, and the Nintendo Switch has been praised for both the 1st and 3rd party titles that are confirmed (and rumored) to be coming to it, players are starting to wonder more and more about what else could be brought to the Switch. In theory, the possibilities are almost endless, and with the mobility of the console, just about any game would benefit. But some fans are wondering whether the popular The Sims series could crossover and make a debut on the Nintendo platform.
This comes from Reddit user DeceptiJon, who notes:
“Not only is the Switch capable of handling the the graphics and whatever else is thrown at them (regarding Sims games), but Nintendo also hasn’t released a game that’s taken advantage of the touch screen and Sims would be perfect for that since you could touch and direct your sim where to go.”
It’s an intriguing notion for sure, and The Sims is arguably one of the most fan-favorite franchises out there. Just in expansions alone it’s a behemoth, and the idea of it coming to the Switch is very appetizing. But as in all things, the question is, “Will it actually come?”
This is where the divide among fans comes in, because while some think it could work (and work well), others think that publisher EA won’t let that happen, as it appears they aren’t in love with The Sims as much as players are:
“Not going to happen, EA has basically abandoned the Sims franchise by shutting down Maxis which were the developers for Sims and since the arrival of Sims 4 which was in 2014 they’ve been treating us fans of the game like a sack of potatoes left to rotten.”
That would be a problem for sure. The other question raised by fans is that The Sims kind of thrives on expansions and mods, and if those cost money for the Switch it could lower interest for it. What do you think? Should The Sims come to Switch? Let us know in the comments below!
