Nintendo’s newest console The Switch is all the rage in the gaming community currently.However there have been some who have been left disappointed by its mediocre launch line-up, which many gamers think is paltry to say the very least.

However there is going to be a lot of third party content headed our way pretty soon as during an interview with the Daily Telegraph Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi and Shinya Takahashi were of the opinion that a lot more titles were headed our way.



When asked that there were not enough games on launch day, Takahashi San had this to say.

Certainly we look at it not just from the perspective of what are the games available on launch day but what we have from a lineup perspective not just from this year but into next year aswell

He was of the opinion that they were looking at not just the launch lineup, but rather than that they were ensuring that there was great content available in each season of the year.

While Koizumi San went on to add

As you know we’ve been focused on development on first party games, but with Nintendo Switch we’ve also put a lot of energy into making third-party cooperation possible, and that includes a lot of attention paid to the development environment that we are provided to these partners as well as the middleware we create for them. Soon you will a lot more announcements from third-party partners.

In addition Nintendo is also talking to a lot of Indie developers about bringing unique content to the Switch.In the past Nintendo has had quite a reputation of being a difficult console to develop for. However that could all be set to change with the Switch . As recently the Developer of The Binding Of Isaac : Afterbirth+ said this.

“The Switch is, by far the easiest and most programmer friendly so far,”

I see Nintendo Switch as an experiment, and hopefully with some good content the console could indeed  be a force to reckon with.Let us know your opinions by commenting in the comments section below.

    People said the Wii U was easy and user friendly to develop on as well. Look how that turned out. A console that’s less powerful than the two other big hitters and even moreso when going from docked to portable will be a nightmare to develop on. You’re now doing triple the work if its a game already being released on XBOX One or PS4 just to get it running on the Switch. Then you have to develop compatibility with a fucking APP to utilize online services? GG to these BS corporate lines from developers saying they’re all in on the Switch. Put your money where your mouth is for once and I’ll believe it when I see actual support.

    The Switch will Flop is Nintendo does not lower those ridiculous prices and gain some great 3rd party support. They also need to change those online policies
