    Nintendo has posted a press release that makes some bold claims:


    • A strong library of games continues to fuel momentum for Nintendo Switch. In the U.S., more than 60 percent of Nintendo Switch owners have Super Mario Odyssey, and over 55 percent own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Not only are these games system-sellers, but they’re also two of the highest-rated games in history. (Photo: Business Wire)

      “Fans across the country have experienced the joy of playing their favorite games at home or on the go,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America’s President and COO. “Now that many more people have received Nintendo Switch systems for the holidays, we look forward to bringing them fun new surprises in 2018 and beyond.”

Nintendo Switch owners also possess the fun, competitive games Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 at rates of more than 50 percent and 20 percent, respectively.

      More than 300 games created by third-party developers have already launched for Nintendo Switch. These include big-name brands like FIFA 18 from Electronic Arts, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Just Dance 2018 from Ubisoft, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition from Mojang, L.A. Noire from Rockstar Games, NBA 2K18 from 2K Games, Sonic Mania from SEGA, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers from Capcom, Rocket League from Psyonix and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and DOOM from Bethesda. Nintendo Switch has also received strong support from indie developers, with a steady stream of favorites like SteamWorld Dig 2 from Image & Form, Golf Story from Sidebar Games, Overcooked Special Edition from Team17 Digital Ltd and Stardew Valley from Chucklefish LTD.

      This year, Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to Nintendo-published games like Kirby Star Allies, Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2 and a new game starring Yoshi. Fans can also expect continued support from major publishers such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, SEGA, Take 2 and Bethesda, plus a growing catalog of quality content from indie developers.

    With innovations emerging almost every day, it’s certain that gaming will continue to change as we move into the new year. 2017 was a great year for the gaming industry but from the look of things, 2018 promises to be much better.
    Let us look at some of the potential gaming developments that are going to take the gaming industry by storm in 2018.




    VR finally makes its way down to the people at the bottom


    VR has been there for a couple of years now but it has not yet reached the dizzy heights we all expected at the start of 2017. The Google Daydream and Oculus Rift provided a great gaming experience to those who were fortunate enough to lay their hands onto these headsets. The biggest challenge of VR technology in 2017 was that it was a bit above the price range of the ordinary folk, however industry experts predict more developments in 2018 that may finally result in affordable sets hence encouraging more players to move to VR and experience the magic of VR technology playing some of their favourite games like live roulette, blackjack, and baccarat.


    Esports to take centre stage


    Studies show that esports are likely to dominate 2018 as more and more people move to compete in organised video gaming tournaments worldwide. According to Stastista, esports are likely to rise in terms of market size by 32 percent. Statista also states that in 2018 there is going to be an equal split between those favouring esports and those favouring conventional sports; this just shows the remarkable rise in popularity of esports.


    Rise in popularity of Indie games


    In 2017, Indie games showed that they have the potential of unsettling the blockbuster games developed by big names. There is a general feeling that in 2018, Indie games will rise in popularity and value as well. Even before 2018 starts, we already know that there is going to be three Indie games to watch out for early next year namely Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, The Last Night, and Indivisible. These Indie games have already generated much hype in the gaming industry and we all wait to see how they will fare.


    Rise in AR


    Augmented Reality (AR) looks set to rise considerably in 2018 after the AR game, Pokemon GO was positively received by many gamers. Unlike VR, AR creates an immersive environment within the gamer’s existing environment. ...
