(Update) Night Trap publisher would 'love' to port to Switch, but Nintendo declined

[Update: We erroneously misattributed a quote to Limited Run Games in the original article. We've removed that mistake. Developer Screaming Villains is the only party who stated via Twitter that Nintendo declined a 25th anniversary edition of Night Trap.]

Years back Night Trap was released on a Sega system in an attempt to upstage Nintendo. Platform holders were anxious to juxtaposed their "mature" games against Nintendo's kid-friendly image, and in some cases, it paid off. Now it seems like the pseudo-war is still going on.

Just recently it came to light that the 25th Anniversary Edition of Night Trap (which is out on PC, PS4, and Xbox One this week) was not going to arrive on Switch. Chiming in further Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez noted his "10 year" history with Nintendo, asking those involved what happened -- port studio Screaming Villains explained that although they "really want" to get the game on Switch, Nintendo declined.

It sort of makes sense why, but Nintendo really don't have a leg to stand on after publishing the first two Bayonetta games, which are much more sexually charged.
