Yeah the only first party Switch games I have are Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Xenoblade 2, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Yoshi's Crafted World, so for me it's still not even as good as the Wii U in terms of first party.
true... I've saying this all along too, just add Animal Crossing in there - which got a big upgrade, and Pokemon which btw was nowhere near the good old GB/DS entries
the possibility of a brand new Smash Bros. and Mario Kart to push the Switch to the next level is diminishing, especially with MK: Home Circuit and still releasing Smash Bros. characters :/
unless the Switch Pro exists, and is a big enough upgrade worth pushing with new megaton games, but that's too many ifs
Smash Ultimate was the new Smash for Switch though.
Mario Kart 9 really needs to happen though. I agree with you on that. Been almost 7 years since 8 launched. Is MK8 the GTAV of kart racers now?
