Just about every gaming fan out there was rooting for Nintendo to succeed with its new Switch video game console. It’s still early of course, and it will be quite some time before we get any firm sales numbers, but every indication right now is that the Switch is a huge success so far. It’s flying off of store shelves as quickly as Nintendo can ship it out, and those of us who have managed to get our hands on the Switch at this point are loving it so far. If there’s one complaint people have, however, it’s that there aren’t very many top-tier games available at launch. In fact, there’s only one: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
It’s a bit aggravating, sure, but the good news is that things are changing quickly. Indie developers are expected to flood Nintendo’s eShop now that it’s clear how high demand is for the Switch, and there are a few big launches scheduled this year from Nintendo.
