We already knew that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as well as Just Dance 2017, was part of the console’s launch lineup. Some of the other games such as NBA 2K17 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition were included in the debut trailer of Nintendo Switch. The mention of an Assassin’s Creed game is surprising. There’s plenty of Mario to go around, and not to forget Dragon Quest XI.
Nintendo has declined to comment on the rumored list and so you should take it with a pinch of salt. That being said, we don’t have that long to wait before Nintendo officially announces its launch lineup. We’ll also get to know about hardware specifications as well as a price point.
On that note, the same individual has claimed that the inventory database also revealed Nintendo Switch with a price tag of $250. Analysts would call that as being aggressive since many were hoping the price to be around the $200 mark.
