Is 2018 the Year of the Switch Port?

Is 2018 the Year of the Switch Port?by

Nintendo’s comeback console, the handheld-hybrid Switch, has become the US’s fastest-selling home entertainment system of all time (in terms of video games, at least) – and this is not only thanks to pioneering technology but also thanks to a series of award-winning and critically lauded software and titles that were drip-fed across 2017. Certainly, if last year was the year of the Switch as far as its rise to popularity is concerned, it remains to be said that 2018 will be the year that it is truly cemented as a staple of living rooms all over the world.

The Nintendo Switch’s library is set to expand even further in the next year or two with news that more well-loved titles that have been played multitudes of times on other systems and platforms will be making their way over. The award-winning Skyrim was a highlight of the Switch’s first year in that it finally gave Elder Scrolls fans the chance to sample open-world adventuring on the go – something which would have seemed to be a complete impossibility only a few years ago (unless you were willing to lug a laptop around).

Some of the titles set to make the leap over to the Switch include a number of titles that Nintendo have already traded well on – such as the under-rated Donkey King Country Tropical Freeze and Hyrule Warriors, both of which were well-loved games on the Wii U – a console which sadly petered out as a result of poor sales and marketing. Beyond this, it seems that Switch owners will also get the chance to play games such as Ys VIII, already available on PS4 and PS Vita, as well as a remastered version of Dark Souls – a game praised for its intensity and difficulty level. These games are all set to roll out across the spring and well into the end of the year.

The Switch looks set to be a console that not only presses forward with innovation and the creation of new titles and brands, but also one which looks to the past and which celebrates the very best that gaming history has to offer. With that handy portable twist thrown in to help us enjoy these games in a whole new light, it’s likely that thousands of gamers will be looking forward to seeing what gets a Switch retooling next.
