Korg Gadget Coming To Nintendo Switch In Spring
Nintendo Switch is looking to be the game gear company's best-seller this decade, and fingers are twitching as news rolled out that Korg is optimizing its Gadget music production software to play on the Switch device — a combined home console and mobile platform with multiple configurations.
Nintendo has been one of the most influential companies in the history of electronic game gear, and Korg's long-standing place atop electronic music gear is shared with few companies besides Roland. The microsite for Korg Gadget for Nintendo Switch, with game developer Detune, creates sensibly high expectations that its Spring 2018 launch cannot come soon enough. Korg Gadget has held its own in the world of iOS music software, but anticipating its finger-friendly optimizations for Switch has musicians really looking ahead.
While Apple iPhone set the pace for convergence and Microsoft Xbox and Sony PlayStation kicked the game console into a new high gear, gamers want all they can get in the fast-twitched immersive engagement that's breaking records for eSports viewership. Between Nintendo's handheld smarts and Korg's legendary synth workstation chops, "Game on!" for making multitrack music creation into the new game in town. Are your fingers twitching yet?
