Nippon Ichi Software CEO confirms Nintendo Switch Projects in the works

Soheii Niikawa, president and CEO of NIS, when asked by 4Gamer about their 2017 ambitions had this to say:

“Nippon Ichi Software will deliver various content from Gifu Prefecture to the world. In 2017 as well, we will actively launch new IP in the consumer game market. But it doesn’t end there. We will steadily take on new initiatives. We also have Nintendo Switch project(s), so please look forward to that.
