Nintendo Switch games 2018: Pokemon and Metroid Prime 4 could have some big competition | Gaming | Entertainment

The upcoming Pokemon RPG game and Metroid Prime 4 project are two of the most anticipated exclusive right now.

Both have a lot of hype surrounding them and are bound to sell well when they arrive as part of the Nintendo Switch games list.

But it appears that more competition could be announced in 2018 from games already featured on the PS4 and Xbox One.

Certain studios have been dropping serious hints that a lot of projects are being talked about for the Switch.

One of these, Panic Button, appear to have quite a few offers on the table, having handled ports of DOOM and Rocket League in the past.

Already working on Wolfenstein II, Panic Button’s director of development, Adam Creighton, has revealed that there’s a lot of interested parties out there right now.

“You know that meme? With the dog? Drinking from a sprinkler? That’s me right now,” Creighton told Gamasutra.

“And we might have some other titles for that platform, and maybe some other games for other platforms, in the works.

“In terms of volume, I’m in this amazing place where as a studio we get to choose how we want to grow, and with whom, and with what projects.

“My biggest challenge lately is not which projects do we pick to retarget to other platforms, but managing the other parts of our portfolio, picking the different projects that are exciting to different people in the studio, and being responsible about what I want to work on, versus what is best for the studio.”

It certainly sounds like we could see a few more PS4 and Xbox One ports announced for the Nintendo Switch in 2018.

There are already rumours that Call of Duty Black Ops 4 will be coming to the Switch, while a remaster project is also said to be in the works.

Another title recently connected to a launch on Nintendo Switch is that of Soul Calibur 6.

Already revealed for PS4 and Xbox One, Soul Calibur 6 is set to launch later this year.

The classic fighting franchise is slowly seeing new characters confirmed for it, the latest being Ivy and Zasalamel.

The new Bandai Namco release already has the likes of Sophitia, Mitsurugi, Nightmare, Xianghua and Kilik confirmed for the roster, with more apparently on the way.

And like in the past, it appears the new Soul Calibur will include exclusive fighters for each platform.

That means a special character for PS4 games fans, one for Xbox One and one apparently for Nintendo Switch.

The latest rumour is that all three will be getting exclusive characters, with a version of Soul Calibur 6 for the Switch apparently set to be announced at E3.

A total of 30 characters will be available on each platform, meaning there could be quite a few more reveals before launch.

In terms of exclusives for each platform, PS4 players will apparently be getting Bloodborne’s Hunter.

While that will be very hard to top, Xbox One and PC fans will be sharing Killer Instinct‘s Jago, and Switch gamers will be getting Lucina from Fire Emblem.

Fans will note that Soul Calibur 2 on GameCube followed the same system, with Link occupying the Nintendo slot back in the day.

It should be noted that all of this stems from rumours and should therefore be taken with a big pinch of salt.
