A HOMEBREW KIT could be the key to getting more games onto the Nintendo Switch, as hackers have figured out how to crack the console through its Nvidia chipset.

Some of the Nintendo Switch placeholders could be for games that have already been revealed but have yet to receive release dates or retail listings.

What adds to the mystery is how Darkest Dungeon has been rated for not only the Nintendo Switch, but also the PlayStation Vita and the Xbox One.

Given the Nintendo's Switch's small internal storage space, it's likely that games for Switch have sold better physically than they do on other consoles.

"That being said, when we were first presented with the Switch concept and some of the key games coming for it, I think a lot of folks who have been in the industry for a while, we all kind of felt, 'Oh, we've got a victor here'". Amazon has released its list of the best-selling games from 2017, and Nintendo managed to take seven of the top 10 spots. This also makes Mario Odyssey first title in the list. Nintendo Switch is both a Nintendo handheld and console that can be docked and this allows for the company to pool their development resources, The result is a game like Super Mario Odyssey being able to release in the launch year of the Nintendo Switch.

At the moment, however, Plutoo, Derrek and Naehrwert have not gone into details about when, in what way and with what content, the Homebrew Launcher will be made available, however, they stressed that the goal is not to encourage "piracy", but to be able to exploit on the Switch some emulators and unofficial applications. Kirby Star Allies, Metroid Prime 4, Shin Megami Tensei, and the untitled Yoshi game are popular contenders.
