The problem is the switch doesnt do brain training or nintendogs aswell as true handhelds

Those two games really work better on Smartphones these days anyway. Switch needs games that first and foremost, benefit its main concept of a home console you can take with you. Say what you want about 1-2 Switch, but it's a game that lends itself well to being played both docked and un-docked.

Then what did you include besides Smash, Pokemon, Mario Party, Octopath, Mario Tennis Aces, and Kirby?

The first rule of labo is that we don't talk about labo...



Considering how strong Nintendo started the Switch's 1st year, it shouldn't be so surprising that Nintendo would slow down a little bit. Sure, they pulled their resources into one system, but it's different compared to when they were making games for a console and a handheld. If the the majority of their 1st party games are going to be of console quality, that's going to take some time to consistently make good quality games. They're not just going to magically make games like BotW, XC2 and MO every year. These things take time, and some of those efforts will show next year. 3rd parties need to pick up the pace, haha.

This. Nintendo combining their resources to one console never necessarily meant that it'd happen overnight, nor does it mean we'll see say, 3D Land and Odyssey on the same system. Big Switch titles will require more development resources than Big 3DS titles. But that also means that said big titles can be optimized for both home console and handheld play, and can free up resources for more unique ideas as well, so in a way, it everything evens out.

2018 was good. 2019 setting to blow it out of the water though at this current time.

2019 will be something to watch out, Nintendo is finally unleashing it's full gear, even though the culmulative we got from these first 2 years is kinda crazy coming from the 3DS/WiiU generation :O

BTW, Switch is an hybrid :P

My point is there is no "mostly Wii U ports" this year.

No, Switch start looking like real unified platform for Nintendo, not just like handheld.
It seems that 2019. will be generally stronger year for Switch regardless games than 2017. was.

Yeah, it's still a game, but I got a chuckle out of this one as well.
