Nintendo used a portion of their Switch console to highlight their third party relations. The company confirmed that third parties have over 80 games currently in development. Among the highlights:

In celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary, Atlus has a brand-new Shin Megami Tensei coming to the Switch, powered by Unreal Engine 4. Development has just gotten started.

Square Enix has Dragon Quest X, XI, and a compilation of Warriors I and II coming to the Switch. They also have announced Octopath Traveller tonight, related in a cursory way to the Bravely Default series.

SEGA will present their upcoming projects for the Switch “soon”. We do know one of these will be Project Sonic 2017.

Bethesda Games’s Todd Howard announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will indeed come to the Switch. In his words, now you can play the adventure of Skyrim wherever you want.

Suda51 of Grasshopper Manufacturer took the stage to announce an untitled title that brings back Travis Touchdown of the No More Heroes series. The game will take inspiration from professional wrestling, in Suda51’s words. No More Heroes and its sequel were originally released on the Wii almost a decade ago. Suda51 says the Switch will be easier to develop for than previous platforms. His game will take advantage of this development environment.

EA took the stage, much as with the Wii U, to pledge their own support for the Switch. This includes the most “popular sports games” coming this year to the platform, likely referring to FIFA. EA Sports FIFA has been promised to be the most immersive version made for Nintendo platforms yet, and will test the waters for future EA software support.

Additional games coming to the Switch were spotlighted in a follow-up sizzle reel trailer. A new Bomberman, Ultra Street Fighter II, Rayman Legends, and Skylanders Imaginators were among the many titles coming to the Switch.
