Whereas Nintendo has at times struggled in the past with third-party support, for its upcoming Switch console (née NX), the company has announced dozens of publishers, developers, and middleware companies pledging to support the new platform. All the major third-party publishers are here, including Activision, Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, and Bethesda (Skyrim, or something that looked very similar to Skyrim, appeared in the Switch debut trailer).

Nintendo is careful to say that these are just “some” of the partners it has, many of which haven’t yet announced specific plans — it’s worth being a bit skeptical until we know what, exactly, these companies will be bringing to Switch.

Nintendo Switch is scheduled to launch March 2017, just months from now.
