Nintendo Switch Firmware 3.0.0 Hacked, Homebrew Reportedly Coming Soon

Amazon Leaks 18 Possible Nintendo Switch Games

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

With 10 million Switch sales since its release in March of 2017, Nintendo have really hit the ball out of the park with their latest console. Kimishima also spoke briefly on the console's issues being kept in stock at the various retailers that have difficulty keeping it available for eager Switch faithful. This also makes Mario Odyssey first title in the list.

Expectations will certainly be higher for Nintendo and the Switch heading into 2018, but maintaining its place in the video game hierarchy could prove tricky. With only 32GB of space without a microSDXC card, certain third-party games aren't even playable digitally. After selling 10 million Switches and almost on the way to selling 14 million units within the console's first year on store shelves, Nintendo is looking to sell 20 million units in the next Japanese fiscal year.


The Switch launched with the long-awaited Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and enjoyed another gargantuan tent-pole release in October with Super Mario Odyssey. Next year, PlatinumGames' Switch exclusive Bayonetta 3 will release, as will new entries in the Fire Emblem, Kirby, and Yoshi series.

While the hackers are keeping their kernel exploits under wraps, likely to prevent others from stealing it or for the effective backdoor to be slammed shut by Nvidia or Nintendo, they are planning to release a homebrew kit to allow for extra software to be run on the Switch. And when you have a platform that is in the hands of kids and families then it opens up new opportunities for any game developers to access new markets. Both the gray and the neon versions sold better than the PlayStation 4, which sold significantly better than the Xbox One S.
