National Basketball Association fans who own a Nintendo Switch better make sure they have enough memory on their handheld console, as "NBA 2K18" for the Switch will reportedly be a resource hog. And it seems that Nintendo is true to its words. While the overall sales figures are still far behind the Sony PS4, the Switch is on the right path to outsell the current bestseller. He claimed that if he had the chance, he would like to try and port the game to the hybrid console.

Several other game developers have also expressed their interest over the Switch. While acknowledging that this also isn't a new trend, he states "It's hard to make an original game now".

Despite widespread Switch shortages, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime has said the company "dramatically over delivered" on the console's supply at launch. He had to borrow the console and "Breath of the Wild" from another staff member just to play.

Finally, Bethesda said that the game's single player campaign and arcade mode "fit on a 16 GB cartridge", but that the multiplayer mode for the game, which will have to be downloaded after purchase, comes in at 9 GB.

For those interested in picking The Evil Within 2 up then they'll have to wait until October 13, 2017, where the game will launch on the mentioned platforms above, PC, PS4, and lastly, the Xbox One. "We are always looking to take that risk".

With so many third-party developers and publishers supporting it, the Switch has broken the awful bonds of the Wii U. After many many years of avoidance, devs like Bethesda, who make the popular Elder Scrolls and Fallout games, see Nintendo as a partner. It's only a matter of time before the Switch becomes one of the most successful 3 party consoles.
