The Nintendo Switch is 18 months into its life cycle and we take a look at the games released on it so far and what lies ahead. Games editor Rishi Alwani and friend of the podcast Mikhail Madnani join host Pranay Parab. We look at the state of the AAA third-party games on Nintendo Switch. Here we talk about the games that have shown up so far and what you can expect in terms of future releases. We look at games such as Doom and WWE 2K18 on the Switch and talk about the things that could improve and what we like so far. The console also faces another problem with the timing of third-party releases, which are often cheaper on other platforms.
Then we look at all the games that are scheduled to release for the Nintendo Switch in the near future. This begins with a discussion of all the first-party titles such as Super Smash Bros. and Pokemon, which could both propel sales of the consoles. However, Nintendo has set itself a target of 20 million consoles sold and there are some third-party games that could easily help it vault over that number.
We discuss which games could do that and whether they will realistically release for the Nintendo Switch. Then we discuss our biggest problems with the games we’ve seen so far on the Switch and how Nintendo can fix that. Finally we talk about the games we’ve been playing this week, which includes some fun titles.
