Konami Could Be Bringing Castlevania, Contra WiiWare Games To Nintendo Switch

Konami Could Be Bringing Castlevania, Contra WiiWare Games To Nintendo Switch

It is worth adding that in the top 20 best sellers list, Nintendo Switch is the only console present.

Sure, a 2017 rebound for the gaming giant was almost inevitable with the dog days of the disappointing Wii U coming to an end and the intriguing new Switch console going to market in March.

Nintendo is a Switch-selling machine, and it doesn't look like the company will be slowing down at any point next fiscal year. Curiously enough, the game has a release date of March 22nd 2018, which possibly contradicts Red Hook's claim, unless they plan on releasing the Crimson Edition following the standard edition. In the previous generation, we saw the release of Super Mario 3D Land for Nintendo 3DS and Super Mario 3D World for Nintendo Wii U. Both of these were excellent games, but the resources of Nintendo had to be split across both projects.

Nintendo did a lot right in 2017. As always, the United Kingdom is one of the first countries to divulge the year's sales data, and it paints an interesting picture for the Switch in the region. Super Mario Odyssey's position is quite remarkable, considering it launched the latest and yet still secured second place. We are proud to award Nintendo with the titles of Shacknews Best Developer and Publisher of the Year.

It isn't just about Mario and Zelda.

We're really excited to be launching our games on Nintendo Switch, and Nintendo has been a fantastic partner for us.

With no core Mario or Zelda title planned for the foreseeable future, Nintendo will have to rely on its other intellectual properties and third-party titles to carry it through next year. The Nintendo Switch has been changing that for the company however, with both DOOM and Skyrim coming to the Nintendo Switch, and Wolfenstein II also heading to the platform. "Underlying all of it is the commercial appeal of having a large install base".
