Nintendo Switch lineup hits 100 titles
With recent additions Troll and I, Battle Princess Madelyn and Celeste, the Nintendo Switch now has 100 titles in the works.
Despite some fantastic early impressions of the hardware itself, one criticism Nintendo's hybrid handheld has copped heavily is the small selection of games available at launch. In fact, the console's entire lineup has left many a little underwhelmed considering the epic list of third-party developers who came forward in support of the Nintendo Switch.
This was a fair criticism considering the price of the Nintendo Switch. If you're going fork out upwards of $450 for a shiny new console, the least you can ask for is something to play on it.

We've updated our complete list of Nintendo Switch games with everything announced for 2017, everything coming in 2018 and beyond. Read more…
That was back in January when we finally got a closer look at the Nintendo Switch and the software available for it. Since that day, developers have been slowly but consistently adding to the console's software roster and with two recent indie announcements, Troll and I and Battle Princess Madelyn, that list of games has hit the 100 mark.
While there still isn't a huge mainstream AAA presence, it's promising to see the little console gather momentum with just days to spare before launch.
Causal Bit's Battle Princess Madelyn feels more retro and is reminiscent of Ghouls and Ghosts and its Nintendo Switch brethren Shovel Knight in both style and gameplay.
Finally, Celeste is a pure platformer from the developers who brought us the brilliant Towerfall: Ascension. Celeste is described as "a game about climbing a mountain" and looks to be just that with some top-shelf platforming mechanics to get you there. An early version of Celeste was created for Pico-8 and is available to play now on itch.io.
