The Nintendo Switch has been in the news lately with reports that the hybrid gaming console will not have a dual release with "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" next year. With that said, Nintendo's dilemma of replacing the Zelda game has been heavily speculated for the past weeks, but there are reports that other games will be featured in the Nintendo Switch prior to its release.

It is shown on the Nintendo Switch trailer that "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch next year. There are reports that "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" will have the same release date with the Nintendo Switch, even though Bethesda denies all claims in regards of its release for the hybrid gaming console.

The report further tells us that the "Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" for the Nintendo Switch is a mirror copy of the remastered game. However, mods for the game title will not be available in the launch date yet and much like on the PS4, the Nintendo Switch will also have limited mods made using existing in-game assets.

Also featured for the Nintendo Switch is "Mario Kart 8", which was shown in the trailer and many believe that it is a new "Mario Kart" game title. However, it is more likely to be "Mario Kart 8" with few tweaks and add-ons for the Nintendo Switch.

Meanwhile, other third party developers such as EA, is planning to release some game titles for the Nintendo Switch. EA CFO, Black Jorgensen admitted that the gaming company will be supporting Nintendo Switch with a game or two, but Jorgensen added that EA is still undecided which games will be added to Nintendo Switch.

Other than the aforementioned game titles to be featured for the Nintendo Switch, is the rumored "Pokemon Stars", which is a third game title for "Pokemon Sun & Moon." It is speculated that "Pokemon Stars" will be release for Nintendo Switch later on, since this has been a setting trend for Nintendo to have an third title with expanded features such as "Pokemon Yellow" that was a third title for "Pokemon Red & Blue.

Nintendo Switch is slated to launch on March 2017 without "Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild." For more Nintendo Switch news and update stay tuned to Gamenguide!
