The reveal of the Nintendo Switch marks the beginning of a new era of gaming for the company and the Switch trailer not only showed off the hardware for the upcoming home/portable hybrid console but some titles coming to the Switch.
Of course, the first title shown was the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which will be coming for both the Nintendo Wii U and the Switch. We also got our first looks at what software will be ported over to the Switch.
ELDER SCROLLS TITLE
Bethesda may bring Skyrim or a brand-new Elder Scrolls title to the Nintendo Switch as the third-party support is a huge selling point for Nintendo this time around. Whether this is a new game is not known but it is likely that it will be a port of what Xbox One and PS4 users already have.
We then get to see what looks to be a brand new Mario Kart game for the Nintendo Switch. It looks similar to Mario Kart 7 but as some fans have pointed out, this will have new features from the last game.
So are just gonna ignore the fact that a new "Mario Kart 8" game was teased in that trailer? It features King Boo and TWO item slots. Sweet! pic.twitter.com/YXzW3sicMN

A basketball game was also shown for the Nintendo Switch further emphasizing the third-party support.
Whether this new basketball game is NBA 2K or NBA Live is unknown as Take-Two, 2K Games’ parent company, and EA are both listed as third-party companies who are working on the Nintendo Switch but if you listen closely, you can hear Kevin Harlan for a split-second, who does the play-by-play for NBA 2K17.
What’s a Nintendo console without a Mario game? And it looks like we will have a Mario Galaxy -style game coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo’s biggest surprise hit, Splatoon, will make its way to the Nintendo Switch when it comes out in March 2017.
So what do you think of the games coming to the Nintendo Switch? What do you hope will make its way there once the console releases? Sound off in the comments section below.
EDITOR'S NOTE: We received the following statement from Bethesda, which stops short of confirming a Skyrim title for Nintendo Switch: "While we are not confirming any specific titles at this time, we are pleased to announce our partnership with Nintendo and support of the Switch. We look forward to revealing specific games and details in the future."
