E3 has just come to an end, and many gamers are now discussing their favourite new games that were previewed over the last few days. Nintendo had a spectacular spotlight: more details were provided for Super Mario Odyssey and an unexpected teaser was shown for Metroid 4. There was also a trailer for the upcoming The Master Trials DLC, and even a preview for the second DLC pack: The Champions’ Ballad. Despite the fact that Nintendo wowed fans with their first-party titles, Reggie Fils-Aime wants more third-party games made available for the Switch.

“We want every high-quality game to have an opportunity to be played on Nintendo Switch.”

Nintendo has a mixed history with third-party titles, which Reggie admitted when he said “we think back to Wii U, that’s one of the things that we didn’t do as effectively.” Reggie’s comments indicate that despite a very successful E3 spotlight, the company are aware they need to bring more third-party titles to the Switch. Reggie emphasized the importance of “high-quality” third-party titles, games that will persuade more gamers to buy Nintendo’s newest console. He did believe that the current line-up of games “are going to keep our fans engaged”, but acknowledged the need to bring in more successful and appealing third-party titles.

The Switch has had a fantastic beginning to its life, but consistency is very important for the console. Nintendo hopes that the Switch can reach sales figures similar to the Wii, but Reggie is aware that Nintendo won’t be able to achieve that with mainly first-party titles. Many great games were unveiled during E3, so Nintendo certainly will have to continue working hard to ensure that other developers continue to be impressed with the Switch and what it has to offer.

    That new Monster Hunter should come to Switch, losing that IP its a bad thing, but looks graphically heavy… very heavy… and BG&E2 too. Seems to be Switch is going to live like previous Ninty consoles: a vast majority of first party titles and very few 3th parties. Although Ninty show more exclusives than the rest of consoles, it’s always a good to increase 3th party titles… a loooot more.

      It has nothing to do with graphics the big AAA 3rd party games at E3 this year have been getting made for like 2/3 years and having a Switch version was just impossible so if next E3 we don’t get included in say 60% of multiplat games then Nintendo has failed 3rd party support,but I think the Switch will get the big games not to mention Metroid 4 and what ever Retro Studios is doing ect and 20 UE4 games from japan in development so think Namco/Sega/Capcom ect are prob hard at work,Switch in it’s 1st year will have a ton of games so I’m happy.

    Well Grasshopper Games has confirmed NoMoreHeros and lots of devs like Rockstar have said don’t rule out GTA5 also rumours of a remastered LA Noire,WRC 7 devs are looking at Switch so are Codemasters ect,there are rumours of some big games being announced in summer,Ubisoft Spain has confirmed Switch version of BGAE2 Michael ancel has confirmed BGAE2 is built to support any platform so obviously it not to demanding,and finally when Xbox one and PS4 came out in their 1st year they were graphically worse then Switch in it’s 1st year so far END OF people forget the Switch is a very capable console it handled Lego City at a native 1080p where as Xbox one was 720p or 900p and not native ?? and developers have had 4 years experience with xbox one yet not even native res on lego city is poor and a hybrid console that some devs are trying to dismiss as not powerful enough ect is just BULLSHIT,dark souls 3 was running on Switch with good performance confirmed basically anything running on Xbox one can run on Switch END OF….
