Nintendo on third-party Switch games, more dev kits shipped to publishers than any of its other platforms
This information comes from Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa…
We are also bringing an even richer variety of new titles from other software publishers as we enter the third year of Nintendo Switch. What you see here is just a sample. These will range from evergreen titles for video game fans to titles that can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age or gender, characteristic titles created by indie developers, a variety of genre-specific games, and more. By bringing them together, the Nintendo Switch library will continue to meet consumers’ diverse tastes.
Many publishers are developing titles for Nintendo Switch because it has met our expectations of widespread adoption, and because we made our development environment available from the very beginning. The number of Nintendo Switch development kits shipped to publishers continues to greatly exceed the number of kits for any of our previous platforms, and many developers are creating titles for Nintendo Switch.
