Nintendo will be releasing the Nintendo Switch in March 2017. The newest console creation by Nintendo is highly anticipated by gamers all over the world. Since the device is a cross-over between a console which is docked to the TV screen and a portable console, game developers may offer players with games that are perfect on either the TV screen or outside or even both.

Project CARS may shift to the Switch because Slightly Mad Studios is having troubles in the Wii U platform. The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth Plus is said to come to “one more console” which may be referring to Switch. Yooka-Laylee‘s developer Platonic says that it is now “working closely with Nintendo”.
FDG Entertainment, the developer of Monster Boy, Cursed Kingdom and Banana Kong hinted in their Twitter account a hashtag on “#NintendoSwitch.” Image and Form, the developer for SteamWorld, is working on “something special” which shows that they may incorporate the game for a Switch platform.
