Time for a Switch? Nintendo dominated Amazon's best-selling games list for 2017

Time for a Switch? Nintendo dominated Amazon's best-selling games list for 2017

"We've already announced some big third-party games like Wolfenstein (II: The New Colossus) that are coming for core gamers, for family gamers there's a Kirby game (Kirby Star Allies) coming in the next few months, there's a Yoshi game that has been hinted at, we've shown a logo for a Metroid Prime 4 game and not much else - but all of that suggests an incredible slate of ongoing support both from our internal studios and from third party".

This essentially allowed the hackers to have higher privileges on the Switch than Nintendo allows, which would provide the means to run non-Nintendo approved software on the hybrid console.

A recent report has arisen on Twitter, with news that Konami could be re-releasing three of its hit WiiWare titles on the Nintendo Switch, along with a fourth bonus title being thrown in for good measure.

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima spoke to Kyoto Shimbun in an interview where he discussed the console and how it continues to surpass expectations in terms of the Switch's sales targets. Xbox and Playstation consoles fall later in the line.

In the same list, Nintendo's Super Mario Odyssey is placed on third position after a couple of PlayStation gift cards. Nintendo released Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and even showed us a new IP with ARMS. In the previous generation, we saw the release of Super Mario 3D Land for Nintendo 3DS and Super Mario 3D World for Nintendo Wii U. Both of these were excellent games, but the resources of Nintendo had to be split across both projects. Curiously enough, the game has a release date of March 22nd 2018, which possibly contradicts Red Hook's claim, unless they plan on releasing the Crimson Edition following the standard edition. There are other teases as well including Wonderful 101 and Bravely Default for the Nintendo Switch. The device is created to work in three ways - TV Mode, Handheld mode and the Tabletop mode.
