Launch titles for a new console are very important. Nintendo’s previous console, the Wii U, struggled in that department, and had mediocre launch titles. Nintendo is aiming that the Nintendo Switch gets off to a good start when it comes out on March 3rd.
Nintendo has not confirmed many launch titles for the new console’s release, however, we do know a few games that will be available alongside the Nintendo Switch. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Nintendo’s new party game 1-2-Switch will be launch titles, alongside Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2017.
The official Nintendo twitter revealed that Super Bomberman R and Skylanders: Imaginators will also be available on March 3rd. During the Nintendo Switch reveal Press Conference, Nintendo also revealed some new titles coming to the console at a later date.
