One of the interesting debates around Nintendo Switch has been around whether it’ll allow for touch controls in games, and whether there’s potential for primarily touch-based games to come to the tablet-like console in the future. One side of the argument has suggested that the ‘home gaming system’ angle and the dock requirement for TV play would rule out touch in games, restricting that screen primarily to the user interface when on the go, for example.
Well, anyone concerned that touch controls will be ruled out of games can seemingly be put at ease, as official details for Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition have confirmed touchscreen controls when in portable mode, seemingly similar to the usage of the GamePad screen on Wii U.
The official website says that you can “undock your Switch device and use the touch screen to take out enemies, manipulate platforms, cut ropes to clear a path and much more”; gyroscope controls will also be supported. Other Definitive Edition features are that up to four players will be able to jump into multiplayer (which seems to suggest this’ll be the case in the main mode), while Kung Foot will be updated with ‘new features’. Just like in the original there’ll be regular Challenges to take on, too.
