On March 3rd, 2017, with the release of the Nintendo Switch, players around the world can once again experience three classic games, re-united on a fantastic new console from Nintendo:
  • Re-discover 2D BOY's beautiful and surprising World of Goo!
  • Re-ignite the dangerous and uplifting adventure in Little Inferno!
  • Re-engineer your corporate ascent in Human Resource Machine!
  • And for the first time ever, all three games will come bundled with their full original soundtracks.
(March 3rd is also Nintendo Switch's launch date. )

And the list continues to grow. Maybe Nintendo should send out an official list sometime in the next month?

I'm seriously suspecting that this is a combination of Nintendo taking the approach of "Did you see this? Well, guess what, there's MUCH MORE!" and third parties (mostly indies) not completely sure about when they could release games as of a few days ago.

I'd like to know when did Indie's get dev kits? I feel there might be quite a few more games available at launch than what was announced than what was announced at the event.

Portable Indie gaming + Nintendo first party.

What a time to be alive.

Wow this indie lineup continues and it's for launch! Very nice.

This is the machine most of us knew it would be.

Wii U + 3DS first party (still to be seen), indies, Vita games and some nice Japanese third party support with western third party sprinkled here and there.

Poor vita. The one big thing it had going for it was being known as the portable indie machine and Switch is just up and snatching that title away from it

I fully expect strong indie and JP 3rd party support for the Switch
JP 3rd Parties didn't support Wii U very well but Switch seems to be starting a little bit stronger.

I'm seriously suspecting that this is a combination of Nintendo taking the approach of "Did you see this? Well, guess what, there's MUCH MORE!" and third parties (mostly indies) not completely sure about when they could release games as of a few days ago.
Yeah there's definitely an element of that. Wonder if we'll see some bigger devs announce games soon.

There may not be many AAA releases but I'll be spending so much on the eShop.

Also three other games for launch day, why in the name of frick didn't Nintendo announce a launch lineup at the event. We've been going off that silly grid they keep sharing on social media which hardly has anything.

Little Inferno is one of the finest Wii U eShop games. Probably won't double-dip on that, but World of Goo will be mine.

Holy crap! Today's real megaton is that more than two people can have the same first name.

The Day 1 line up looks pretty good now.

A bunch of Wii U devs have all said that "after talking to Nintendo" they're ditching Wii U for Switch so I think Nintendo certainly encouraging it.

People really rejoicing over ports still?
Since when is it a problem for people to be excited to play video games? Jesus Christ man. People always talk about double dipping and tripling dipping for Steam, PS4, 3DS and every system ever. Why is it a problem for you if people enjoy playing these games again and some people haven't even played these games.
