With the launch of the Nintendo Switch mere weeks away, one pressing question continues to pop up concerning the system. What games can we expect on the system going forward? IGN offers an answer in their video spotlighting 61 titles confirmed for the Switch.
While the video does not represent every title announced for the system, it does highlight a variety of games coming for the Switch, even if some games have gameplay footage from other platforms. Of course there are the expected standout Nintendo titles like Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but new offerings from the company like 1-2 Switch and Arms are included as well.
Also featured are familiar indie titles like Cave Story, Shovel Knight, and World of Goo. Third parties make their presence known with the likes of Fifa 18, Steep, Super Bomberman R, and a host of Dragon Quest titles. Check out the video below to see all 61 titles in action.
There are certainly a number of games coming to Switch, but are they the type of games that have you salivating to spend $300 at launch? The answer for me is no. As great as some of the Nintendo games look, a lot of them left me unenthused. Many were ports of titles which have been out for awhile on other platforms and few grabbed my interest like upcoming games I can play on my PS4 in the coming months. While I still remain very much interested in the Nintendo Switch, for now I will hold off on purchasing the system in the next few months. Perhaps Mario Odyssey or a lower price will get me to change my mind in the future.
