Official Nintendo Switch Third Party Society - (Updated to November 1)

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Official Nintendo Switch Third Party Society - (Updated to November 1)

Welcome to the Nintendo Switch Third Party Society thread - a thread to keep track of how successful third party games are on a month by month basis among the VGC Nintendo community, and to see what third party games are popular/not so popular. It's also intended to be a place to discuss third party games and share opinions about them. Third party games can be controversial when it comes to Nintendo, so I kindly ask you respect others' opinions.

  • You must own and have posted what third party games you own to gain entry to the society. Demos and Betas do not count.
  • DO NOT EDIT OLD POSTS! - Post what new games you get in a new post. Editing old posts throws off the numbers.
  • IP collaborations that include a Nintendo-owned franchise will be included, but uncounted for game ranking purposes. Titles with cameo appearances or unlockables, like skins from a Nintendo owned franchise, are fine.
  • Attacks on other society members within the thread won't be tolerated and will result in expulsion.
  • How the rewards program works. (Unsure if this will continue at this time - DPR)

I'll opt in, I guess! So far, I only have Ultra Street Fighter II when it comes to third-party games, but I'll probably have more in the future.

So far only 5 third party games for me

I've only got Blaster Master Zero so far.

Adding the current share of third party/total library for fun, since I might return to post in this thread at later dates and see how things develop for me personally... 50%

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

This should be interesting! We could also come up with agreements per game as far as what the game needs to sell to be successful and see if the game reaches those milestones?

Sure :) obv coz its just VGC users it should be resonable ammounts.

I'll tag too. Even if I don't have a Switch yet. I hope Nintendo solves that fast.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Tag. When I get my Switch next month, I'll probably buy some 3rd party game in the e-shop.

I guess I'll opt in, I have I am Setsuna and Super bomberman R
