It seems there are more games on the horizon waiting to be released on the Nintendo Switch.

Above and beyond the marquee titles like “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” expansion and “Super Mario Odyssey,” the company also plans to release some unannounced titles. “We still have some titles that we haven’t announced yet,” shared Nintendo’s executive managing officer Shinya Takahashi in a recent investor meeting.

He mentioned that “Metroid Prime 4” is already in the works. They are also looking to continue with what they have started in the “1-2-Switch” game. “We are working on a variety of projects now where we are asking ourselves how we can follow up on 1-2-Switch in terms of using Nintendo Switch to play differently, and what would be fun to play,” explained Takahashi.

Last June, the gaming giant announced several titles for their flagship console during the E3 2017 event. Apart from “Metroid Prime 4,” they also mentioned a core “Pokemon” game. “We are looking forward to announcing some of these projects soon,” Takahashi added.

Meanwhile, a recent update for the Switch console allows players to find their Joy-Cons faster, in case they misplace them. The new update activates a vibrating feature to locate paired controllers that are within communication range. Players can activate the feature by heading on to the “Controllers” tab then clicking “Find Controllers.”

Furthermore, the update also improved the console’s general system and functionality. Switch owners can now add their friends from the friend lists of the Wii U and 3DS. In addition, Players can now lower the max volume for headphones and speakers connected to the jack.

The success of the Switch has been so immense that it increased Nintendo’s market capitalization to 5.44 trillion yen last June 23. According to a ValueWalk report, the value sat at $48.9 billion when converted to US dollars. This was higher than the $48.5 billion of rival Sony.
