Nintendo Switch family is getting bigger as developers are beginning to trickle in their support for Sony's newest console. FDG Interactive confirms two titles currently being developed and targeting mid-2017 for release.

Frankly, Nintendo Switch is a game in itself - a guessing game where all have to formulate details since its conception. Sony stressed that they will not reveal further details until release date in March next year so gamers have to guess what this console is capable of. On the developers' side, they too seem to inherit Nintendo Switch's enigma. Several said they will support Sony but very few unveiled game titles.

So gamers have to guess again, but this time around centers on FDG Interactive. Who among their popular titles will invade Nintendo Switch and what could gamers expect? Game Reactor suggested that "Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom" is en route to Sony console. Then the second title could be Zelda-derivative "Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas."

Honestly, these suggestions are logical choices if gamers are to dissect recent FDG actuations. The developer teased "Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom" in Twitter. Though there is no direct confirmation, a hashtag Nintendo Switch appeared alongside the post.

"Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas" is a relatively new FDG Interactive title that has just invaded in September. Again, Twitter post served as another clue to its purported journey towards Nintendo Switch. FDG tweeted that they are developing a version of this title for Nintendo. Given the recent updates, this is more likely Nintendo Switch instead of Nintendo Wii U.

In a related development, WSJ forecasted that Nintendo Switch may end in heartbreaking result for Sony if the tech giant couldn't solicit support from big game developers like Electronic Arts and Activision Blizzard. This makes sense because console success is dependent on how good are game titles available for it. A console may pack all the innovations of current generation but will still be mediocre if there are no exciting title to harness its potential.
