Vivox has announced that the Vivox SDK now supports the Nintendo Switch. This allows all authorized Nintendo Switch developers the choice to provide in-game voice chat capabilities over a headset plugged directly into the console.
Developers interested in utilizing the Vivox SDK in their Nintendo Switch titles can reach out to Vivox through the developer’s existing account on the Nintendo developer portal, and from there can download and begin integration of the SDKs. Development teams have already brought Vivox into their Nintendo Switch ports with outstanding results, including Epic Games’ Fortnite. Hi-Rez Studio will also be leveraging the Vivox SDK for SMITE and Paladins in forthcoming game updates. That same functionality is now available to all publishers.
“We’ve already seen a great deal of success with Nintendo and the use of our voice services in Fortnite,” said Dave Verratti, president of Vivox. “We are extremely proud to be a part of the Nintendo ecosystem. We’re happy to help Nintendo continue to push the envelope in their products by bringing gamers together through enhanced communications. Multiplayer games can and should excel on Nintendo Switch, and we’re excited to see the results of the Vivox SDK on Nintendo Switch.”
With the addition of Nintendo’s latest console, Vivox now officially powers crossplay-ready voice and text communication across every major gaming platform, allowing game developers to engage their audiences in the games they love through quick and easy communication.
