Nintendo Switch is about to be made official in the next two weeks and third party games will play an integral role in making it a hit. Ubisoft will offer the best support for the console by launching all their AAA titles making them available on a handheld gaming device.
Rumors and speculations related to the Switch console continues to emerge from time to time. The latest comes from a reporter named Laura Kate Dale. She confirmed that at least three different Ubisoft games will find its way into the console on launch date. Based on their tradition, we expected games like Rayman Origins, Assassin’s Creed and even the first Watch Dogs to be available on this platform. However, hardware specifications are limited and the company has never been a supporter of action AAA titles. They are going with more family friendly games.
The official launch is scheduled to take place on January 12th. Instead of Origins, the team is planning to port Rayman Legends to the platform. The announcement will be made during the event and will be one of the launch titles that people could buy on day one. Another game is something of a surprise according to the reporter as it is a Mario, Rabbids SRPG crossover title.
The name of the crossover game is ‘Rabbids Kingdom Battle’ and it won’t be available on launch. Instead, Nintendo plans to bring it out in the month of September. Beyond Good & Evil 2 is an exclusive Nintendo Switch game which will find its way to the platform and will stay there for at least one year before being available on other consoles. A teaser video of the gameplay will be revealed during the presentation.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild will be a launch title as confirmed earlier. There have been various updates with regards to this news and some claim that the new Zelda game will be pushed to the end of the year. It is important for Nintendo Switch to deliver the best experience on the console and they may not hesitate to delay the launch date for development time.
It is good to take all this information with a pinch of salt even though it looks very legal. NintendoLife adds that according to Kate Dale, the Zelda game will launch with one another title in the fourth quarter of 2017 while some titles will be available on launch.
