A short list of some games we want to see on the Nintendo Switch

Nintendo showed off its new console, the Nintendo Switch, target="_blank" href="https://beta.techcrunch.com/gallery/everything-we-suddenly-know-about-nintendos-crazy-new-console-the-switch/"> for the first time, in a video earlier today. It’s basically a tablet to which you connect two controllers when you’re carrying it around, and then you use a regular controller when the tablet is plugged into the TV.

In other words, it’s a kind of hybrid console where you can play both while you’re on the move and comfortably on your television at home. It’s a pretty cool concept, though there’s a lot we still don’t know about it, like what the battery life is like.

We got a big list of third-party developers that are working with Nintendo this time around, so it looks like we’ll have a much wider array of games than we saw on the Wii U. But truth be told, there are a bunch of games we want to see on the console, so we’ve listed a few below. Nintendo, please make (or partner with developers that will make) these games!
