These are all Switch games being worked on.

Heartstone is far from confirmed. I'd argue that it's not even hinted at.

Adding games that might not even exist to that list would only doubt and disappointment.

What I want to know is... how will you be able to Super Jump in Splatoon?

Even if the screen does have touch functionality, the map would have to overlay the action somehow.

Normally I'd agree with you, but this isn't a system that is scheduled to release in a year from now, but rather in 5 or so months. Using tech demos at this point to show off the system wouldn't be wise. Besides, I've seen other people play the NBA game that was shown off at my school (in the Xbox One, I believe), so... yeah, the NBA game can't be a tech demo. The Mario Kart 8 game? That could be a tech demo.
Of course, there's the possibility of game cancellations and such, so waiting for confirmation isn't too bad an idea.

God first.

We don't even know if the Switch was actually running those games in the video. Most likely, those games were "photoshopped" in. The system probably wasn't actually running them. We also know games have claimed to be running on a particular system looking a certain way, but those details change later. It is better to wait until we have confirmation than to start adding a huge list of games that will just have to be deleted later

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Dragon Quest X may only be released in Japan though. We really need to let Nintendo and Square Enix know we want it localized.

I would say it's reasonable and not misleading to add "Mario Kart for Switch," Skyrim, and "NBA-licensed title" to the semi-confirmed titles list, and to move Splatoon there and rename it "Splatoon for Switch."

Even if they end up being tech demos, they have more in their favor currently than most of the titles already in "semi" confirmed.

Sega obtains exclusive rights for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. This allows them to be the sole publisher of official Olympic titles on console, handheld, mobile and arcade machines.

This is not an official game announcement, but expected news considering the success of their previous Olympic titles. There's a very good chance we'll be getting an Olympic game on the Switch.

While I'd love to see the Switch get FFXIV, Square is only just beginning to drop PS3 support. I don't think they'd be willing to add another low-powered device to the playability list again.

I can see the Dragon Quest MMO working out just fine, however.

Koei held a special event today to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their historical simulation series. They released their first title "Battles of Kawanakajima" in 1981.

At the end of the event, Kou Shibusawa revealed that a Nintendo Switch version of Nobunaga's Ambition is currently being developed.

No word on if it's a port or a completely new entry?

@Octane

At their results briefing today, Koei Tecmo confirmed that they are starting development on a new Nobunaga's Ambition series. They did not specify any platform, but this is probably what Kou Shibusawa was referring to yesterday. There was no mention of the Switch at all during their briefing.

3rd party developers appear to be under some kind of embargo where they can't comment on the Switch titles, even if it's launching in their current fiscal year. Konami and Capcom also held their results briefings earlier today, but they've also remained tight-lipped on the Switch.

Konami confirmed that Winning Eleven and Jikkyou Powerful Soccer are coming to the App Store/Play Store, but that's just about all they can say for their 2017 schedule.

Capcom have 35 titles planned for their current fiscal year. They've released 22 titles in the first half (Apr. 2016 to Sep. 2016), so that means they have another 13 titles to be released in the second half (Oct. 2016 to Mar. 2017). It's not clear if any of those are Switch titles or not.

@MumboJumbo It makes sense, following Take-Two's and Bethesda's reactions after the Switch reveal. Looks like Ninty wants a full blow-out of games in January and wants nothing to revealed now that may lessen the impact of the January reveal.
