Nintendo Switch Launch Lineup

  • Just Dance 2017
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Skylanders: Imaginators
  • Super Bomberman R

Nintendo has said that 80 titles are in active development for their new console. However, the launch day lineup is currently looking short on both stand-out titles and quantity. As evidenced above, only six games have been confirmed for launch day. That is nearly a sixth of the number of launch titles that were available on the Wii U.

Few new consoles have a game as high profile and highly anticipated as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild available at launch, however, and many Nintendo fans will want to dedicate much of their time to discovering everything its massive world has to offer. Spreading out the marquee titles (Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2) throughout 2017 may allow early adopters to focus on the games that they feel deserve their time, rather than jumping into smaller games because they feel they should make the most of the launch. We may also hear from additional publishers between now and March 3 about additions to the launch lineup.
