Well informed journalist Laura Kate Dale has provided new details about the possible first year lineup of games supporting Nintendo Switch. The lineup is including a few third party titles and mostly first party games together with some surprises, including a never reported before Xenoblade Chronicles X port from Wii U.
According to Dale, the console is releasing on March 17, 2017, and is also featuring a Mario Rabbids RPG in the making at Ubisoft with Nintendo overseeing the project in order to have it launching on day one. In the first six months we’ll also be playing, based on this rumor, a new and dedicated version of Mario Maker, and a port of The Silver Case.
The recently rumored Pokemon Stars – a Sun and Moon port – is said to be releasing in Autumn 2017, although it was originally planned for summer. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is reported to be shipping in summer next year, together with newly reported Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a Sonic game and Pikmin 4. Beyond Good & Evil sequel could also be coming, exclusively for Nintendo Switch, in 2018.
