Ripstone on bringing Chess Ultra to Switch, DLC plans

A portion of a Nintendo Life interview with Ripstone...

NL: In terms of developing for the Nintendo Switch, were there any particular challenges in that process?

R: It was a real pleasure to develop for Switch, and an interesting learning experience for us. You never lose the buzz of opening a box with a brand new console development kit in it, and ‘Switch day’ was no exception! The biggest challenge was trying to squeeze all of the detail from a 4k game onto a non-4k device, but the end result is beautiful. Because Chess Ultra was developed with 4k detail from the beginning, the Switch version has really benefited and the game is as stunning as it could possibly be.

NL: Looking forward, can you outline some of the DLC that's planned for the game on Switch?

R: You’ll have ‘check’ back later for full details! (Sorry, bad joke) For now, we’re working on bringing pre-existing Chess Ultra DLC to the Nintendo Switch, including new chess sets and environments. The Pantheon game pack is confirmed and adds a Roman temple environment and set of Imperial soldier chessmen. So, not your usual chess setup!
