The Nintendo Switch might be launching with only a few games of note, but from the company’s viewpoint, this console is built for the long haul. Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima looked to counter the impression that the console lacks games by providing some numbers.
Addressing investors at Nintendo’s recent meeting, Kimishima claimed that the Nintendo Switch currently has over 100 games in active development. And not all of these games are from Nintendo, either. Between indie and third-party publishers, 70 different companies are currently supporting the Switch.
These numbers have grown since Nintendo showed off the console on Jan. 13.
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.
Combating the old Nintendo with the new Nintendo
Nintendo is trying its darndest to look like everyone’s friend so it doesn’t find itself isolated and squeezed out of the fray like it did in the last generation. So far, third-party publishers seem pleased, and the company no longer comes off as a fossil when compared to the modern approaches of its competitors.
Yet, Nintendo still has a bit of a way to go. Online deals, subscription plans, the horrendous prizes behind My Nintendo. We’re getting there, but some old habits seem hard to shake off. 70 publishers, 100 games, none of it matters if you’re online services seem dated.
We’ll get there, Nintendo. I promise. Just one foot in front of the other!
