Everyone seems fired up for the Nintendo Switch, now that the January event is just around the corner.

But more than just the fans, developers seem to continue showering the franchise with a lot of love. Specifically, two more studios have expressed high hopes for the console.

The first is Ubisoft's Alain Corre. Speaking to Famitsu (via TechnoBuffalo), Corre emphasized that they had big expectations for the innovations that the new console can bring.

The idea of being able to not only bring the essence of the game into a handheld setting—imagine dancing anywhere in the house or beyond with Just Dance—but also letting anyone in the family do that at their own convenience.

"The hardware really helps expand the possibilities of fun, people of all ages will be able to play games anywhere. We hope to have a wide variety of software available, but we're unable to go into details just yet."

If that's not enough, even EA is looking at the Nintendo Switch as a reasonable contender. The studio is supposed to bring one of its major franchises to the console, though admittedly, the execs seem more reserved than other developers.

Speaking at the Credit Suisse Technology (via GameSpot), Media, and Telecom Conference, EA"s chief competition officer Peter Moore touched on the fact that Nintendo has the capability of turning the game to its favor.

"We've had a relationship that goes many decades back. They've had some difficult times recently, obviously, but [you should] never ever, ever discount Nintendo in this marketplace, and their ability to leverage their superb game development opportunities [and] their intellectual properties."

From the looks of it, reservations about the Nintendo Switch abound just as the praises do. That January event will definitely be a good turning point once we know more details about the hardware.
