With its portability, the Nintendo Switch console is one of the most popular consoles around and has been the best-selling hardware for a couple of years now. It looks like Switch console gamers are in for a treat in the coming months with a slew of titles arriving at the platform.

‘Tropico 6’

Rumors that the “Tropico 6” could be coming to the Nintendo Switch started in January when a product listing for the title was spotted on a Greek website. The game’s release in the console is made possible via a publishing partnership between “Tropico 6” publisher Kalypso Media and Koch Media, NintendoLife reported.

“Tropico 6” is a construction, management and political simulation game developed by Limbic Entertainment. The player becomes “El Presidente” of the island nation of Tropico located somewhere in the Caribbean.

The player will steer the nation through four eras: the Colonial era, the World Wars era, the Cold War era and the modern era. One improvement in “Tropico 6” not found in previous titles is the ability to build bridges. Thus, the player isn’t limited to just one island but can expand his nation into an archipelagic one.

Unfortunately, no official release date has been announced at the moment.

Remastered Super Mario games

Super Mario Bros will be celebrating its 35th anniversary this year. To mark the special occasion, the franchise will be releasing remastered versions of Super Mario titles from across various console generations to the Nintendo Switch console, Tech Radar reported.

The remastered titles that will be released to the console include “Super Mario 64” (1997 - from the Nintendo 64 console), “Super Mario Sunshine” (2002 - GameCube), and “Super Mario Galaxy” (2007 - Nintendo Wii). Other titles that will arrive at the Switch this year is a new game from the Paper Mario series and a Deluxe version of Super Mario 3D World, which was originally released in 2013.

‘Flipnote Studio’ (Rumored)

Meanwhile, there are rumors floating around the “Flipnote Studio” will be coming to the Nintendo Switch console as well, according to NintendoLife. Originally launched in Japan as “Moving Notepad,” the “Flipnote Studio” is a popular animation sharing app that appeared on DSi and 3DS.

Screenshots from the supposed Switch version of the “Flipnote Studio” were leaked online. According to the publication, they were accidentally shared online by a Nintendo personnel. Of course, it is possible that these screenshots might be fake so fans better take this rumor with a grain of salt.
