While the Nintendo Switch games 2018 list has got some top titles included in it, fans are always hopeful of seeing additions made. Whenever a new game is announced for any other platform, there's guaranteed to be a wave of "Switch port?" comments, because the hybrid nature of the device has clearly resonated with a large audience.

The console has confounded experts with its success despite lacking the power of Microsoft's Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4, and despite its inability to stream movies or browse the web.

In a financial report released today, Nintendo revealed that it had sold more than 52 million Switch games as of December 31, 2017. The Switch is now the fastest- home console in United States history. Talking about Wii U, it was shipped around 13.56 million units.
