Could be a console exclusive!
By Robert Marrujo:: Nintendo's Switch console continues to garner quite a bit of attention from the development community, with everyone from small indie studios to premier creators eying the hybrid system. Now, word has come that Bandai Namco might be priming one of its classic franchises for a revival on Switch. The rumor has been started by a job posting on a Bandai Namco Singapore employee’s LinkedIn profile that Ridge Racer 8 will allegedly be coming exclusively to the system. Here's the account in question:
While Bandai Namco hasn't announced Ridge Racer 8 on Switch or any other platform, it's not without precedent to see the series on a Nintendo platform. The last entry for a Nintendo system was Ridge Racer 3D on 3DS. Beyond that, Ridge Racer in general was last seen in the mobile game Ridge Racer Slipstream on iOS and Android. That was back in 2013. It would be a pleasant surprise for both Switch owners and fans of Ridge Racer: we'll update if we get any official confirmation.
