After months of speculation, reports, and rumors, Nintendo officially unveiled their new console, Nintendo Switch, with a preview trailer last week. The debut footage showed multiple first-party and third-party games running on the upcoming console, including Skyrim, Splatoon, Mario Kart, and a new Mario Game, but Bethesda later clarified that they can’t confirm Skyrim for Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has now cast further doubt on the status of the Nintendo Switch lineup, as they’ve told Eurogamer “You shouldn’t assume what you saw on the video represents actual game footage.”
“This video is all about explaining how the Nintendo Switch works. We wanted to convey in a self-contained video how Nintendo Switch represents a new era for video game systems enjoyed in front of a TV, by letting gamers play anywhere, anytime, with anyone they choose. It adds the mobility of a portable system to the power of a home gaming system.
“At a later date, before the March launch, we’ll be talking about things like exact launch date, and of course, the games. You shouldn’t assume what you saw on the video represents actual game footage and further specifics on first-party games will be provided later.”
Nintendo is not outright denying that the games shown in the preview trailer will be on Nintendo Switch, but they are also refusing to confirm this. We’ll have to wait a little longer for our first official look at Nintendo Switch gameplay.
