FUN FACT: The NBA 2K series began in 1999 on the Sega Dreamcast.

The Nintendo Switch arrives early next year but aside from a special preview event, we've had little in the way of solid news regarding the games we'll be playing on it come March 2017. Not only has Nintendo been coy about what it's working on, it appears to have forbidden third-party publishers from sharing details too - which has naturally led to speculation that the console will lack widespread software support.

However, Take-Two President Karl Slatoff - speaking during the 20th Annual Credit Suisse Technology, Media & Telecom Conference - has done much to curb such gossip by claiming that Nintendo is doing a lot to support third-party publishers and developers with the forthcoming console:

The folks at Nintendo are making a great effort to support third-party developers, we're very optimistic on the Switch though we are not announcing anything specific today.

NBA 2K was one of the titles shown off during the Nintendo Switch preview event, but Take-Two hasn't officially confirmed that the popular sports series is coming to the system.
