The video game giant, Electronic Arts (EA), is planning to develop games for Nintendo Switch, with a big hint that something big is about to come for Nintendo Switch. EA Chief Competition Officer Peter Moore shared at the Credit Suisse 2016 Annual Technology Conference that Nintendo will always play an important partner and that a game will be made on the Switch.

Moore also went on to say that the relationship between Electronic Arts and Nintendo goes back, and while Nintendo has had some challenges recently, they've never discounted Nintendo's place in the market and their ability to come up with superb game development.

After struggling with sales on their devices, Nintendo still has its hopes that its latest game console that merges home console and portable gaming system will be able to help them regain their spot in the gaming industry. Although it's still not yet clear what game Electronic Arts will launch on the Nintendo Switch, rumors have been circulating that either "Madden", "NBA Live", or "Mass Effect: Andromeda" will be launched in the console. The list of games will be released together with the Nintendo Switch this March 2017.

According to University Herald, the Managing Director of Ubisoft Annecy Xavier Poix believes that merging TV gaming and mobile could unite both casual and hardcore gamers. Poix also stated that Nintendo Switch is a good evolution because of its innovation to merge both worlds together which gives it user both the console experience and the mobile handheld games.

It appears that Ubisoft isn't the only game developer giant that is impressed by Nintendo Switch. Several third party developers also pledged their support to the console after Nintendo announced its release. Nintendo's latest game console is also expected to include motion controls to its features which are a great feature in Nintendo Wii.
