Official List of Nintendo Switch Third Party Devs So Far

Minutes after the awesome reveal of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo sent out a list of companies who are supporting the new portable/console hybrid. While from the trailer alone we already know of Skyrim and NBA 2K, plus Sonic Mania from a while back, this list hits all the right notes to make this console feel less like a gimmicky experiment and more like the entertainment platform we all wanted from the Wii U. The official list of Nintendo Switch third party devs so far is as follows;

  • 505 Games

Nintendo also stressed that this is just some of the companies looking to develop for their platform. Some of the highlights of that developer list for me are companies like Square Enix and Capcom. Final Fantasy XV on the go? Yes please. Monster Hunter with a comfortable controller in high definition? I need new pants.

Finally, Nintendo starts to love third party development.

Now, let’s hope that actually developing for the console itself goes smoothly, as some consoles are easier to craft for than others. Development kits will also have be to heading out pretty soon if some of these companies want to be on the shelves early, especially considering Nintendo is still sticking to the March 2017 release date.

All I know is that its going to be a long, long winter.
