One of the bigger games Nintendo is touting for the Switch is Bethesda’s “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim,” which is already five years old. You know something isn’t quite right when a five-year old-game is getting top billing for your new system.
Still, Nintendo could very well prove us wrong with the Switch and roll out a boatload of third-party titles in the latter half of 2017 that completely blow away any doubts about the system.
I’m also curious to see how deeply the Switch’s portability will eat into Nintendo’s 3DS handheld console sales. The company just launched its newest “Pokémon” titles in November to great success, so it’s not as if that system is dead in the water.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the Switch, which is to be expected. The Wii U, the company’s last console, was also its worst selling system ever. That said, there are plenty of bright spots to look to with the Switch. We’ll have more about the console in the coming months.
