Last year, there was a gossip Bandai Namco was bringing Ridge Racer 8 exclusively to a Nintendo Switch. While there was never any central proclamation made, this plan has now been axed, according to a YouTube channel Doctre81.

This refurbish comes from a LinkedIn form of a former Bandai Namco Singapore Studios employee, who used to be a comparison program operative during a association and was a lead operative on dual “unannounced and cancelled” titles regulating Unreal Engine 4.

It all ties in easily with Shawn Pitman’s LinkedIn page (dating behind to final February), when he was still a lead engineer during Bandai Namco’s Singapore Studios. Here, he listed a group was operative on an unannounced first-person shooter disdainful to Nintendo’s hybrid complement (believed to be Metroid Prime 4, before growth was restarted by Retro Studios) and a other diversion mentioned was a Switch-only title, Ridge Racer 8.

The source of this find (Doctre81) is a same particular who found a strange LinkIn form final Feb and is formerly famous for anticipating references to a Nintendo Switch in CD Projekt pursuit listings, months before The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was announced for Switch.

The final time a Ridge Racer diversion seemed on a Nintendo height was during a commencement of a 3DS era in 2011. Before then, there was Ridge Racer DS in 2004, a spin-off R: Racing Evolution on a GameCube in 2003, and a Nintendo 64 title, Ridge Racer 64 (released in 2000).
