Tatsumi Kimishima, President of Nintendo, made some key points around the company’s ongoing strategies and progress during his financial results presentation to the media and shareholders in Japan. One of the questions some people have for the Nintendo Switch is how many games will come out for the system and how many are planned for late 2017 and of course 2018.
Since the Switch Presentation in early/mid January, around 30+ games from roughly 20 publishers have apparently joined the broad list of titles coming to the system.
Next I will provide a follow-up report about our software publisher partners. After the presentation on January 13, we have continued to receive requests from more and more software publishers who want to develop games for the system. At the presentation, we announced that there were over 80 titles in development from more than 50 software publishers, but that number has now climbed to over 100 titles from more than 70 publishers. Please look forward to more announcements about the software lineup in the future.
Over the past few weeks we’ve seen smaller companies announce their titles to come out on day one which is great as there isn’t many AAA games coming out right away for the system.
