So far, only three Switch games are confirmed for the show: Dragon Quest Builders 2, Dragon Quest X (not XI), and The World Ends with You: Final Remix, with the last one being the only one with a confirmed Western release at the time of this writing. The first DQB is among my favorite games on the Switch thus far, port or not, and with its success state-side I can only imagine that its sequel will follow suit eventually. Also, I would be even more happy if DQX were to come to the States given my past (okay, and current) obsession with the MMORPG genre. I have no opinion on the third game, but I'm sure that its impending releases excites some people out there.
How about totally new games for Switch? I'm all for that as well, but it seems like they have their hands full with a plethora of mobile-based games already (going by their schedule). There are almost as many mobile-based games as there are console titles in their event line-up, which is kind of a bummer. I can't say that I am surprised considering the popularity of the mobile gaming platform, especially in the East, but I still don't have to be happy about it. All I'm asking is for Square Enix to not let us down. The Switch has proven already that, time and time again, it is an excellent outlet for RPGs of all facets. Now, if we can just get one of the patriarch's of the genre to fully invest, we might all be better off for it.
What are your thoughts on the current lineup for SE at TGS 2018? What are you hoping to hear about from the show?

|This article feels a bit out of date after a day, thanks to that "Buttload of Final Fantasy" section on the Direct. I wonder if they've got more old content yet to announce that didn't get included as it wouldn't fit the Final Fantasy theme? Like Secret of Mana or Chrono Trigger.|
