THQ Nordic is disappointed by the Switch’s power, believes it will replace the 3DS

THQ Nordic, formerly known as Nordic Games, has said they are disappointed by the Nintendo Switch’s overall power, and are struggling to run games on the system.


  • In an interview with, Reinhard Pollice, business and product development director at THQ Nordic, said “It’s a bit sad that they haven’t gone out with a more beefy hardware.”
  • Pollice says that Battle Chasers, a 2D turn-based RPG game, is “a challenge to get running smoothly on Switch” while open-world sci-fi RPG Elex is “just too demanding right now.”
  • THQ Nordic also believes that the 3DS will be replaced completely by the Switch.

THQ Nordic clearly wanted the Switch to be more powerful than it is. Are you happy with the power of the console, or do you think Nintendo should have released it with better specs? Let us know in the comments below, if you please.
