Nintendo Switch - The First Party Trap Again?

-Shout out to Mizzah Tee in the video
-Shout out to Spawn Wave (see why in the video)

Nintendo can sell a lot of Switch consoles to Nintendo Fans quickly with just 1st party games, but to actually expand their business to appeal to more consumers, they need Third Party early in the system's life cycle to bring more people in that aren’t just interested in Nintendo games. Right now Nintendo is saying they have the same plan as Wii U in 2013, that they want to drive the install base with basically just 1st party again. So this is the problem of not having Third Party on board in the first year of the Switch, since it can very well lead to the Switch, just like Wii U, only selling to Nintendo fans and not expand the user base to others who might want to play: Battlefield, Call of Duty, Fallout 4, Nier Automata, Battlefront 2, Doom, Assassin’s Creed, Titanfall 2, Persona, Final Fantasy, Evil Within 2, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Resident Evil 7, Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Wolfenstein II and the list goes on and on, but these games are all not coming to the Switch thus far.
