Image & Form looks back on their meeting with Nintendo prior to the Switch launching, talks potential ports

Getting a first-look at Nintendo's next piece of hardware is something very few people in the world get to do, and Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson was one of them. It all happened due to a meeting at GDC a couple years back, and it helped pave the way for SteamWorld Dig 2 to come to Switch.

“At the time it actually looked like it could launch late 2016 and I was eager for us to get our hands on a kit. I met with a Nintendo delegation at GDC in San Francisco in March that year, and was really surprised at the formality of the meeting. I've met with Nintendo people many times both before and after, and that was by far the most peculiar meeting I've had with them. A huge board-room table separated me from a five-person international Nintendo team of big wigs and I suddenly felt more jetlagged than usual. It was clear that I had to come up with some pretty suitable answers to some pretty specific questions. Luckily our release schedule for SteamWorld Dig 2 fit the bill, but I didn't find that out until afterwards. They were as friendly as always - and very secretive.

What's next for Image & Form on the Switch? While there is nothing confirmed, Sigurgeirsson did say “there’s a real chance” we might see the studio’s older games ported over.
