FUZE Code Studios announced for the Nintendo Switch

With SmileBASIC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U owners can use the BASIC programming language to create some games. FUZE Code Studios works in the same way: it allows users to learn a text-based programming language, in order to create your very own apps and 2D/3D games.

Quite interestingly, the software allows you to access Joy-Con sensors, just like developers with devkits would. And the timing of the latest Firmware update for the Nintendo Switch, which adds support for USB keyboards, couldn’t be any better: the game can be used with such a keyboard! This is great news, as programming without a keyboard generally makes for a pretty frustrating experience.

Here’s the main features of FUZE Code Studios on Nintendo Switch:

  • Easy to learn text based programming language
  • No coding experience required
  • Create your own apps and fast 2D – 3D games
  • Access Joycon sensors and controls directly in your programs
  • Use the Dock to show your games on your TV to share with friends and family
  • Programmable synthesizer & Speech engine
  • Use the included game graphics & audio or create your own
  • Extra  content packs will be available to download
  • Use a USB keyboard, the FUZE touch keyboard or the Joycons to enter your code
  • Comes with game graphics and audio and you can create your own
  • Learn to code
