There has been a lot of hype over the new and innovative hybrid console Nintendo Switch (aka Nintendo NX) ever since Nintendo dropped the trailer on October 20th of this year. The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid console that enables users to play games anywhere as a portable console or at the comfort of your home as a tablet and connect it to your HDTV.
Here is a list of games that hopefully might be available on the hybrid console:
1. NBA 2K17
One of the classic games on all gaming platforms like the XBox, PlayStation, or PC. The game will be able to fully utilize the console's features by putting it on tablet mode and cutting the controls into two so you can play with friends as per the trailer. The game was included in the trailer for the Nintendo Switch so hopefully it would be available to play when the console comes out. This will make for a fun casual game to play when your friends are over.
2. Monster Hunter
The game has been successful since its first release in 2004 for the PlayStation consoles and handheld (PSP). Hopefully, the franchise finds its way to the Nintendo Switch as it did to the Nintendo 3DS with Monster Hunter Generations. The Nintendo Switch's larger screen offers a much more immersive gaming experience compared to other handhelds with smaller screen sizes. It allows you to take in the gameplay in its entirety. Monster Hunter surely is a must-have game!
3. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The trailer for the Nintendo Switch showed a brief gameplay of what could possibly be The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game but Nintendo has not yet confirmed if the game will be available for the console. Hopefully, they will include it to take advantage of one of Nintendo Switch's features which enables its users to put the console on dock and connect it to HDTV. Skyrim's stunning visuals will surely make playing the game enjoyable. That and being able to play Skyrim on a portable console will certainly be awesome. Gone are the days where you have to wait to get home just to play this amazing game.
4. Tekken 7
The long-running versus fighting game Tekken is set to release their 7th installment early 2017. There is still no official date for when the Nintendo Switch will be released though it is also rumored to come out early 2017. Bandai Namco, the company that made Tekken, is included in the list of developers and publishers that supports the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully, they will include the game in their partnership and make the game available for the console-handheld hybrid.
5. Mortal Kombat XL
Mortal Kombat is definitely one of the classic versus fighting games everyone has played or at least, are familiar with. Its charm lies in its brutal fighting style that ends in bloody deaths, among other things. With gore and pure violence, it became a classic hit and its known for its familiar in-game voice line "FINISH HIM!" that signals you to make the final combo to kill your opponent. This classic game would be a fun game to play on the Nintendo Switch.
