Only a week into 2018, and we're already getting weak at the knees as Nintendo Switch racks up more and more positive headlines - including its recent conquest of Wii U's lifetime sales in Japan - but will the rest of the year hold for the Big N's game changing console? Well, if one tweet from a big name at Nintendo itself is to be believed then the next 12 months could be even more successful than 2017.

The social media post came from none other than Damon Baker, the head honcho of third-party titles and 'nindies', who responded to one gamer's screenshot of his Switch menu (and all the games featured on it, including Rocket League and LA Noire). Could he be trolling us? Is he trying to drum up a bit of hype? The mind boggles...

Okay, well maybe we're reading a little too much into a small exchange on Twitter, but you get the sense everyone at Nintendo is as excited about Switch's next chapter as we all are. Do you think 2018 will be a big year for Nintendo and Switch? Share some your predictions with us below...
