EA, Ubisoft, Bandai Namco and more reveal first games to launch on Nintendo Switch

Major third-party developers have revealed the games that they currently have in development for Nintendo's upcoming Switch console.

EA announced it will be releasing a new FIFA for the console. It had previously stated it would be releasing one of its "bigger" games on the console but couldn't predict if the hardware would have broad appeal.

Ubisoft will be releasing casual game Just Dance 2017, platformer Rayman Legends and the recently-launched extreme sports title Steep on the Switch. The publisher had previously stated that it's also developing titles for the platform with mobile play sessions in mind.

Bandai Namco revealed that its Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will also make the jump to the Switch. It stated that it also has a new entry in the Tales Of series and a Taiko Drum Master game in development.

Best of the rest

Sega meanwhile confirmed Sonic Mania and Puyo Puyo Tetris would be coming to Nintendo's console. Capcom revealed just one title, Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers.

Grasshopper Interactive's SUDA51 was also present at Nintendo's press conference to reveal a new wrestling-inspired game for the console starring No More Heroes' main character Travis Touchdown.

Indie developers are also offering up titles, with Frozenbyte's Has-Been Heroes, 34BigThings' Redout, and Ed McMillen's The Binding of Isaac all seeing releases on the console.

The Nintendo Switch will launch on March 3rd for $299.99. It allows players to take their games on the move on a separate screen or plug them into a TV when at home.
