It looks like this from Nintendo could see support from even more publishers in the not too distant future.
It seems that THQ Nordic will support the Nintendo Switch even more than in the coming weeks and months.
It seems we could get on the hybrid platform with Darksiders III and BioMutant.
This comes after the Twitter user PixelPar posted a picture of Amazon, the Darksiders III and BioMutant listed with their various listing numbers on Amazon
The pictures show other THQ Nordic examples that follow the same process, with their list numbers attributed to switch titles.
We are curious if they will be announced soon. However, it's nice to see more and more publishers supporting the console.
This comes after earlier this week, where Nintendo released a new system software update for the Nintendo Switch.
The new update brings the hybrid handheld / home console up to version 5.0.2 – the second update since the big 5.0 crash earlier this year.
This time, Nintendo has not introduced too many changes – it's a simple stability / bug fix (19659005) This update may be a disappointment for some fans who might have expected something more interesting: Many players are waiting to add Themes to the console What allows them (19659005) Other players expect cloud storage to be added to the switch eventually.
At the moment Nintendo was pretty quiet and if (and if!) These features were added
The full patch notes for Ninte ndo Switch Version 5.0.2 can be found below:
- General system stability improvements to improve the user experience including:
- Fixed an issue that caused motion controls to improperly respond to games with the
- Resolved function – an issue that caused recommended referral user icons to not display correctly
This update comes after last week, when Nintendo's Shinya Takahashi was represented at the BAFTA Games Awards 2018 to represent Nintendo and their titles.
During the event, Takahashi conducted an interview with the BBC.
The otherwise rather tight-lipped company made something interesting slip there – directly linked to the future of Nintendo hardware.
"Nintendo is constantly working on hardware, so we've been research and development," said Takahashi. "So you can see the new system someday in the future."
We have bolded the above lines for emphasis. It looks like Nintendo is already working on new switch updates – but what form could they take?
There are a number of options:
First, we could see that the developer / publisher followed the route of the 3DS and released an XL version of the console – something we've seen do it with the 3DS. Secondly, we saw them go the other way and possibly release a Nintendo Switch Mini: a more dedicated handheld unit than the hybrid switch in its vanilla shape.
We were also able to see a redesigned version of the switch being offered – one that does not have some of the current console issues (there is a hackable exploit associated with the GPU of the console, which could be removed, for example).
Whatever the future looks like, we want to see it.
It's also worth noting that Nintendo usually plays its cards very close to his chest, so the fact that the company is ready to talk about it means that we can see an announcement soon … maybe on the this year's E3? We hope so.
