The new console, which transforms into a handheld without interrupting your game, launches with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as its only major title. Critics say that could damage the Switch's sales at a time when it should be flying off shelves.
Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima laid out the company's strategy for the Switch while discussing Nintendo's annual financial performance this week. "It is important to continue to provide new titles regularly without long gaps," he said, highlighting Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS and Splatoon 2 as games that would follow after the launch.
The Switch will launch on 3 March in Japan, the US, Europe and Australia. Mario Kart hits the road at the end of April, followed by ARMS and Splatoon 2 in the next few months.
