The switch needs to have more third party support. Nintendo is doing great on first party support,but there is a lack of third party games. I would love to see next year's call of duty or madden on switch. So many developers are putting there games on ps4,Xbox one, and pc and leaving the switch out. Look at the upcoming games for next year that have been announced,most of the games are coming to the ps4,Xbox one, and pc. There can be alot more amazing games on switch if developers would just put there games on the console. It would be very easy for larger developers and publishers to bring games to the platform. Thank you for reading this post

Are you kidding? This is Nintendo's best third party support in years! CoD and Madden aren't needed, if the publishers want those on there, they'll do it when sales are much higher.
As for other games, there could be development issues, or as I've already said, they're waiting to see more consistent sales.
Hey, at least we have Capcom, we're getting 19 Mega Man games in 2018, that's insane. Not to mention Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 which from what I've heard are good ports.
And then there's Bethesda, with Skyrim, DOOM and Wolfenstein 2.

I think Nintendo made the right third party choices for the beginning of the Switch, unlike the Wii U, which got CoD at launch and failed.

Dude they already stopped making the Wii U. I think you meant to post this there a couple years ago.

Go back under your bridge.

Madden would be great for sure. You do have to accept though that some multi platform games just won't be released on switch due to limitations of the hardware.

So far 3rd party support has been great. Coming from the non existent Wii U 3rd part support its night and day

If you are into madden and cod then I guess a PS4 or Xbone is the safest bet. They will have the best versions of those games.

Even though it won't happen, I would LOVE to see a more arcade version of Madden on Switch. Something like Madden 2005 w/ Madden Arcade graphics. That would be amazing.

Don't worry at least 1 port of Madden, and COD will show up on the system.

I have a couple of questions as well, and a few assumptions. We know Octopath, Yoshi, Kirby, and FE are all coming sometime in 2018, and we know little else. So my questions are:

1) Whenever Nintendo launches their paid online service in 2018, I am assuming Nintendo will launch a new game to drive adoption of the service. I assumed that would be Smash Bros, Animal Crossing or possibly Retro's game if there is an online component to it. Do you know anything about this? I also assumed Nintendo would use a 3rd party title as well. Most likely a FPS like Overwatch, COD, Destiny or something similar. Do you have any knowledge of this?

2.) Kirby or Yoshi is slated for early 2018, I assume one will come in the first 3 months of 2018 and one later in the year as to not cannibalize each others sales. What else is coming in early 2018? I assume Fire Emblem is a March or May 2018 game, as they will not stack at same time of year with Pokemon as not to cannibalize japanese sales. Do you have any info?

3.) I've heard financial analyst state they would assume that 3rd party's are talking about "Deluxe" or "Remixed" HD ports of older games from the PS2, PS3 as well as modern day ports. Do you know anything about this?
Things like Shadow of Mordor, PacMan Maker, MK trilogy or Bad Company II would be interesting receiving the Deluxe or Remixed treatment.

Finally, have you heard anything about the online service? Will there be a proper voice chat, invite system, and other modern services at the OS level, so they are the same across all games?

Thank you for your time. Have a Happy Holidays!

@brickofthewild it depends on what you want out of them. I put way more time into my switch than my Xbox because I can take it with me.

I think this guy is trolling. If not, he should realize there is more to 3rd party than COD or Madden. I'd welcome them to the Switch, but the Switch doesn't "need" them. There are plenty of other 3rd party titles jumping on. The more the merrier but we all know it isn't gonna get everything.

"Nintendo is doing great on first party support,but there is a lack of third party games. "
There are A LOT OF Third party & Indie games for Switch right now.
Don't Deny that !
Btw, Great 3rd party games are not just only typical fifa or madden or etc.
Try other games in different genres, as long fit with your taste.

If your referring to me, I am not trolling. "Needs" is a funny word. But if Nintendo's objective is to sell units like PS4, then yes it does "need" an american football game (Madden) and a decent FPS (COD) for the masses.

I personally think getting Overwatch, and prior to the EA loot box fiasco, Battlefront 2 would have been bigger priorities for Nintendo, as it fits with their family friendly image better than COD.

I'm not picking on you, I'm not a fanboy of any system. I'm looking at it strictly from a dollar and cents standpoint. I honestly don't care if Apple buys Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo and turns them into iOS game makers. But I don't think that would happen, and I don't think that would be good for all gamers. Strictly speaking from a financial standpoint as return on investment, yes, Nintendo needs to show that it has the "staple games" that all systems get. Hopefully they do.

Every Nintendo home system since SNES has had Madden on it. Every handheld since Gameboy Advance has had Madden on it. So it stands to reason, it needs a version of Madden. Gaming is better with Nintendo in it and doing well, and having Madden and COD helps Nintendo push it's own content to a wider audience.

Yeah, I'd think that Nintendo need to adopt a strategic approach to fill specific gaps in the third party lineup that are entirely down to the individual absence of certain AAA games. Maybe just take a look at the ten biggest non-exclusive games for other platforms last year, with some allowances for where Nintendo already has a similar game of their own, and pay whatever it takes to get ports of them. They're not necessarily going to be pretty, or play as well, and they'll probably lose money too but so long as they're good enough, the ability to play them on the go should influence enough buyers for the hardware. Doom and FIFA would be examples of this, so hopefully they're doing it already.

However, if you're looking at the sheer quantity of third party games it's doing just fine, with over 200 out already and a similar amount in production for the next year or so.

@Whitewatermoose While I agree that it would be good to get games like that on the system, the Switch is selling just fine without them. Nintendo has made it clear they are doing their own thing and not basing their success off of other game companies. The whole idea of the Switch was to be something different than Xbone and PS4 which, while very fine devices, are essentially the same product. Nintendo knows they are gonna fail if they try introducing a 3rd version of a product already on the market.

Call me crazy, but I can't remember the last time I was anticipating this many third-party games on a Nintendo system. There's like 20 of those games I want in my collection already, when it hasn't even been a year since the console launched, and I'm only talking about retail stuff. I'm not even counting Mario + Rabbids because it has Mario on the cover.

I agree with you in that regard that Nintendo misty do their own thing and not copy the other two... That being said, I think we all realize that any system needs Minecraft. Right? Same as a streaming device having Netflix.

Minecraft and Netflix are juggernauts. Fifa is the same way. COD and Madden are not that. But they are needed. I'm not saying every version, every year. Don't misunderstand me. But if Nintendo is looking for 3rd party games that are going to appeal to the largest audience, COD, overwatch, destiny, Madden all fit the bill.

I know a lot of you are clamoring for Metroid and Bayonetta. Both are important! But historically they do not sell like even one version of COD or Madden. I'm not saying Metroid or Bayonetta are unworthy or not needed. They are. I'm just trying to tell you all who are saying EA isn't needed You are wrong. The more AAA games you have the better off you are, the better off the platform is.
