There have been 1,000 games released for Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch has been nothing short of a success. Gamers embraced its dual portability and home console utility, and developers followed suit. It has gotten to the point where “put everything on Switch” is now a popular fan slogan. The Switch is now seeing the release of everything under the sun. This includes indie titles, retro re-releases, Wii U ports, first party games, and more. Crazy enough, the Nintendo Switch has now crossed the 1,000 game mark!

A new video was released today on the Nintendo UK YouTube channel (seen below) commemorating this achievement. It also doubles as a way to hype up some of the biggest titles that are out or coming out for the Switch. These titles include Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Diablo III: Eternal Collection, Super Mario Party, Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and more.

Even more impressive than reaching 1,000 games was how fast this landmark was achieved. The Nintendo Switch released in March 2017. Compare that to the PS4 and Xbox One, which both released in November 2013. Each has between 1,700 and 1,800 games. At this rate, the Switch is aiming to eclipse the other consoles of this generation before its third year. It’s already decimated the Wii U release number of around 750. That just goes to show how big of a comeback Nintendo has made with the Switch.

There is no shortage of games to play on Nintendo Switch. As the trailer showed, we have the soon-to-be-released Let’s Go games (check out our Let’s Go, Eevee! review) as well as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. There’s also Team Sonic Racing and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe that we’ll see in a couple of months. Even titles without release dates such as Animal Crossing, Bayonetta 3, and Metroid Prime 4 have us hyped.
