Following the presentation of the Nintendo Switch, the house of Mario and Zelda published on its official Japanese website an image including logos of series coming for the new console from third parties. You can see it at the bottom of the post.

Among them there are some easily recognizable ones, like Sonic Mania and Project Sonic 2017, but there are also a few that might prove problematic to read for those who do not read Japanese.

First of all, for JRPG fans, the green logo says “Tales Of Series,” confirming that an unannounced “Tales Of” JRPG is coming to the platform. At the moment we don’t even know whether it’ll be a port or a completely new game. For all we know, it could even be more than one.

The yellow logo belongs to the Derby Stallion series, the one following is Taiko no Tatsujin (Taiko Drum Master), then we have Arcade Archives and Harvest Moon at the beginning of the bottom row.

During the presentation, Nintendo announced that over 80 games are currently in development for the Switch, from over 50 developers and publishers.

At the moment no further information was shared, but of course we’ll keep you posted as soon as anything new is posted about those new titles.

Update: Bandai Namco Entertainment America followed up with a press release officially confirming both a Tales Of game and Taiko Drum Master in development for the Switch, alongside Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
