Again, why are people leaving out the 3DS? Nintendo outputted games for both the Switch and 3DS during the first 2 years of the Switch being out.

That's another thing people should consider as well. Many of Nintendo's teams/developers were still on 3DS projects as well, so that took away some resources from Switch games.

Here is a list of games. I think a lot of people will be shocked at the 3DS output from 2017-2019. This includes games they published, but didn't develop. (Going by NA releases)

Dragon Quest 8 Remake
Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World
Tank Troopers
MarioSportsSuperstars
Bye-Bye BoxBoy
Team Kirby Clash Deluxe
Fire Emblem Echoes
Ever Oasis
Kirby's Blowout Blast
Hey Pikmin!
Miitopia
Metroid Samus Returns
Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga Remake
Fire Emblem Warriors
Mario Party Top 100
Yo Kai Watch 2 Psychic Specters 
Monster Hunter Stories
Pokemon US & UM
Style Savvy Styling Star
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy
Kirby Battle Royal
Detective Pikachu
Dillon's Dead-Heat Breakers
Sushi Striker
Captain Toad
WarioWare Gold
Yo Kai Watch Blasters
Luigi's Mansion
Mario and Luigi Boswer's Inside Story Remake
Yo Kai Watch 3
Kirby's Extra Epic Yarn

That's a lot of games. But keep in mind, Nintendo only had these games made as a backup plan in case the Switch failed. Now that it's a success though, they're able to move on from it (abiet sooner than they anticipated).
