The #Nintendo Switch is adding more games to its lineup despite the apparent shortage of the device itself. According to the Venture Beat, Bethesda has further expanded its support on the gaming platform after confirming "#Doom" and "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus." The games were announced as part of the Nintendo Direct online event on Sep. 13, 2017. Additionally, Bethesda is also releasing "The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim" for the Switch this coming November.

The series of games being released for the Nintendo Switch seem to come amid the shortage of Switch stock. Gamespot reported that more features were also announced for the platform mainly the inclusion of "Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champions" Amiibo.

Amiibos are commonly known as physical items based on the game, and they play significant roles in unlocking special items within a game. Moreover, Nintendo is also releasing an all new Pokemon-themed 2DS XL.

Shortage on Nintendo Switch

As interesting as the titles may seem, the Nintendo Switch remains elusive in North Americas' retail stores. Nintendo America previously denied rumors that the company is purposely manipulating the shortage to create hype. CEO Reggie Fils-Aime said, the company is doing everything it can to manufacture more devices, but it seems like the effort is not quite enough.

Talking to Variety’s Entertainment and Technology Summit in Los Angeles last week, Fils-Aime said: "Certainly the demand is there, and our supply chain is there. Are we going to have enough for a holiday? That’s what we are focused on.” Nintendo Switch is about to reach 10 million in sales record, a number that way surpassed the company's expectations.

Unfortunately, they can't seem to cope up in providing enough units to consumers.

Nintendo's plans

Meanwhile, Fils-Aime also added that Nintendo wants to be known as an entertainment company instead of just a maker of video games console. Other than being known for their excellent hardware, the company is also vying on games and other entertainment products. Nintendo landed a partnership with Universal Studios further drawing speculations that they plan on including movies and TV shows as well.

Nintendo's potential move to AR is also on the table. This was confirmed by Fils-Aime when he said: "We have a lot of experience with AR. The potential for AR is here and now.” Virtual Reality (VR), on the other hand, may not arrive in a span of 10 years. #List Of Games
