The Nintendo Switch is selling like hotcakes these days.
The hybrid console, built for portable and home play, has already surpassed the lifetime sales of the Wii U and the lifetime shipments of the Nintendo 64. And every few months, a title that didn’t get enough exposure on the Wii U gets ported over to the Switch and instantly becomes a top seller. So far, Nintendo has brought over past titles such as Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and other portable Wii U games to the thriving Switch.
The Switch isn’t just the home for ports and remasters of Nintendo classics, though. It’s also been the go-to device for exciting new entries in long-running Nintendo franchises. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Fire Emblem: Three Houses are three shining examples of the Switch’s healthy library of exclusive games you can’t get anywhere else. Nintendo certainly knows that anything from its crowded vault of first-party titles can prosper once it appears on the Switch. And that’s where we come in. Here are five Nintendo franchises that deserve to get a new entry on the Switch.
