So Nintendo’s finally lifted the lid on the Switch, formerly known as the NX. But what games will you actually be able to play on their fancy new detachable console?
Here’s all of the games Nintendo showed off in their reveal trailer — and there’s a few interesting ones:
Splatoon was Nintendo’s final game, and it was also their big competitive pitch with two teams pictured in a stadium filled with spectators.
Not sure about that one.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
We knew this one was coming. Can’t really tell whether it runs better on Switch or has more graphical fidelity, but you’d have to imagine it would to some extent.
Bit of an interesting choice. Major sports franchises weren’t really something that featured on the Wii U. I’ll be very, very keen to see if the Switch actually has this as a launch title come March. (I’d play the hell out of it.)
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
Definitely didn’t expect to see this one. Wonder how hard Nintendo had to lobby Bethesda to get them on board. Games like Skyrim would be perfect to take on the train and then continue playing when you get home, though. It makes total sense.
A New 3D Mario Game
We saw the least about this one. The impression I got was more of a modern Mario 3D than a new Mario Galaxy or anything like that.
Mario Kart 9
Another no-brainer. I’d expect to see Smash as a launch game as well, the way Nintendo is pitching the co-op possibilities between multiple Switch consoles. But MK9 makes plenty of sense.
What else would you like to see playable on the Nintendo Switch?
