It’s kind of interesting that we are getting information on these games gradually. I guess Nintendo didn’t find them noteworthy enough to be on their Switch showcase. Nevertheless, they could function as time-killers for the early-adopters of Switch.

Most wouldn’t care much about these games, but they are better than nothing I guess. The original PSP launched with a crappy lineup as well (I remember the launch-time Dynasty Warriors title which required loading every few minutes, that was horrible).
