A NeoGAF user, Doctre18, spotted Linkedin details from Virtuos’ senior programmer Xiaoyu Zhang which showed that they’re bringing an AAA port to the Switch. The info is as follows:

WIP: Porting a AAA title to Nintendo Switch™
– Re-implement the renderer with Nintendo’s native graphics API(nvn)
– Design and implement the low level mechanism of graphics resource management and threading
– Exploit the performance advantages of the Vulkan-like API (UMA, explicit management of graphics memory, complete control over CPU/GPU synchronization, etc)

In case you don’t know who Virtuos are, they’re the team behind some popular remaster collections, such as Batman: Return To Arkham, Final Fantasy 12: The Zodiac Age and Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Trilogy. The NeoGAF member also adds that he thinks Return To Arkham is the likeliest candidate to be ported to Switch.

Which of Virtuos’ previous offerings would you like to see on the Switch?
