Dale tweeted that her lay out for Switch software throughout the first six months of the Switch launch, with a few ports coming soon. On the launch day of the Nintendo Switch, Dale reports that there will be:

  • 3D Mario (shown in the reveal trailer)
  • Mario Rabbids RPG (Nintendo overseeing to ensure day one availability)
  • Splatoon Port
  • Skyrim (Dale says "debated by others" but insisted by her own sources)
  • Just Dance 2017 ("100% locked for launch", adds Dale)

In the first six months, we should expect:

  • Smart Port (Bayonetta and Cloud Amiibo same day)
  • Zelda: Breath of the Wild (summer launch)
  • Telltale Guardians of the Galaxy ("very near launch day, weekly eps leading to movie")
  • Mario Kart 8 port (with "minor additions")
  • Xenoblade X port (late summer)
  • Mario Maker port

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
