strange comment to make during the 2 weeks where Astral Chain and Daemon X Machina launch for the system, but I guess out of the 2,000 titles on the Switch it is a correct statement that most games on the system are ports just from a % point of view, the same would be true of all consoles and the PC of course since there are far more multiplatform games than exclusives, just saying that the last few weeks / months have been pretty cool for new IP exclusive titles on the Switch.

Yeah.. I guess just looking at my amazon wishlist recently and realizing litterally every one of the like 12 games on there are ports/remasters heh - minus Astral Chain, which does look awesome. It's still largely a port machine (which is actually fine by me as I really value the handheld functionality with these games), but yeah Switch is starting to get more brand new stuff finally.

Out of curiosity, what are these ports/remasters you have on your wishlist? AAA third party ports? Because then yes, the most AAA third party games on the system are definately past gen ports, then again there's hardly any AAA support from third parties so it's not really a big thing :P But if we're looking at first party games it's not really true.

When 2019 is over, and we are looking at the first party published output there's 33 games that's brand new non ports on the system and only 9 ports/remasters.
