The Nintendo Switch is already the latest, greatest thing, even though it's only been hours since its announcement. But some are already wondering about third-party support and voicing fears that it could fall the way of the Wii U and lack developers.

Fear not! Nintendo released a line-up that includes just about anyone you'd want to work with, and apparently that's not all of them. Just looking at their sample image is like an industry fantasy football team. Nintendo intends to hit hard this time, getting the Switch out there and into everyone's hands.

We have the huge names like Activision, Bethesda, EA, Square Enix, and Ubisoft, not even to mention the tech companies they've partnered with like Unity, opening the door for games that run on the Unreal Engine.

48 companies have already pledged to work with the Switch, which is much more promising than the Wii U's original list of 21. The possibilities are looking endless, good news for anyone hesitating about jumping to another console.

Bethesda immediately tweeted their support after the Switch announcement, getting everyone hyped about "exciting opportunities" to come. Based on what we saw in the trailer, perhaps those exciting opportunities aren't too far off. Maybe a mobile Skyrim? The Switch is set to launch in March of 2017 and you can be sure many of Nintendo's partners have already been hard at work to make sure it has plenty of starting games.

What do you want to see on the Nintendo Switch?
