Nintendo Switch: 10 Improvements It STILL Needs

9. Immediate Third-Party Support

Think of all the big games that came out on multiple consoles in the last few years: Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Red Dead Redemption 2. Resident Evil 2 Remake. How many of those also released on Nintendo Switch?

When a new game comes out that you really want to play, obviously you need the right console to play it. While some are exclusive to a specific console, most are released for multiple ones. This is a big area the Switch lags behind in. Now that's not to say it doesn't have any third-party support, just not immediate. Additionally, when third-party games are released they are usually scaled-down compared to their console counterparts. The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is playable on Switch, yes, but lacks the visual splendour that it has on a PS4 or Xbox One.

It's safe to say that the internal hardware on the Switch is severely lacking when compared to its competitors, and this results in its inability to fully adapt major third-party games. To further this point, most third-party games the Switch has received are older games from past generations of consoles.

Nintendo has always been lacking in immediate third-party support; step it up.
