That’s certainly an impressive list and definitely shows off the kind of third party support that gamers really want to see. The test for Nintendo going forward, however, is to get some of these third party titles ready for the launch of the Switch to compliment the first party titles. Then they need to stay on top of the launch by assuring those that are hesitant to jump in day one that more titles are coming.
