Nintendo Switch launches on March 3, priced at US $300/£280/AU $470. The console’s touchscreen was recently shown off for the first time, using Skylanders Imaginators. The toys-to-life game is one of the 10 confirmed Switch launch titles. The other nine are: 1-2-Switch, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, Just Dance 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I Am Setsuna, Human Resource Machine, Little Inferno, World of Goo, and Super Bomberman R. For all the games confirmed to be coming to Switch–but not necessarily at launch–take a look at our roundup.
The Switch launch lineup could continue to grow between now and release in March, but it’s unlikely there will be as many launch titles as there were for Wii U, which had 23. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently spoke out to stress that launch is “not the be-all and the end-all.”
