Long lists with familiar names; Nintendo's new console will not be lacking in the games department and title diversity should be no problem at all

Nintendo had a dark grey history regarding its relationship with third party developers, but the times where the company tyrannically wrestled for absolute control over the experience its products provide are long gone and forgotten. If you need proof, there is no need to look any further than the freshly announced game lineup for the Nintendo Switch. Skyrim, Steep and even FIFA have already been confirmed for the console.

On launch, the following games will already be available for the Switch:

  • 1-2-Switch!
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Skylanders Imaginators
  • Just Dance 2017

1-2-Switch is a classic party game along the lines of some of the games that made the Wii popular. Breath of the Wild and Just Dance 2017 require little introduction, while Skylanders Imaginators is a title definitely aimed at younger generations. The launch lineup is neatly divided between Nintendo's own games, one of which is a staple of the companies franchises and another pair provided by Activision and UbiSoft.

The Switch has quite an interesting list of confirmed games, set to release further down the line. The long awaited confirmation of a version of Skyrim for the console is finally here, yet mod support has not come up so far. A FIFA and NBA title are also on the way, right next to a new Farming Simulator, Xenoblade Chronicles and Sonic Mania.

Exciting times. With a network of such size and diversity in terms of game types and design practises, Nintendo has a great chance of recovering from the luke-warm-to-cold reception and performance of the Wii U.
