Each Nintendo console ranked according to its launch lineup
Without counting the Game Boy Color, since it was more of a no-hand with few games strictly speaking at launch or exclusive in general, Nintendo made twelve dedicated consoles and portable systems. The company has been strong for over a hundred years now, nearly forty of which have been dedicated to video games.
They are not going away anytime soon and will continue to help shape the future of this industry. In terms of launch queues, how did they do it? Sometimes only one game is needed for victory, so everything from quality to size will count towards these rankings.
The Virtual Boy launched with four games on August 14, 1995 in North America. These titles include Galactic Pinball, Mario’s tennis, Red alarm, and Teleroboxer. The system itself had no more than twenty titles over its lifespan which was less than a year. Between them and this range, the system is a difficult pass.
The DS was launched with six games on November 21, 2004 in North America. The only real game worth noting is the Super Mario 64 port, but even then there was not much to say. The DS was going to have an impressive library, but the door choices were minimal and poor.
3DS launched with eighteen games on March 27, 2011 in North America. It also didn’t have a good start like the DS. The outrageous price of $ 250 and the lack of a lethal app made it a pass for the first few months.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars was a well-known tactical RPG, Super Street Fighter IV looked good in 3D, and Pilotwings Hotel It was good to play with, but it was not a real system seller. It became a better deal a few months later when it dropped to $ 180.
Game Boy Advance
The Game Boy Advance was released with seventeen games on June 11, 2001 in North America. Some notable titles include Castlevania: the circle of the moon, F-Zero: maximum speed, and Super Mario Advance, which was a port of the second game. All three of these games are good games, but the hardware itself made the system hard to sell thanks to the lack of a backlit display. Playing Circle of the Moon, for example, was almost impossible.
There is no precise and precise date for the launch of the NES, but most sources seem to indicate that it falls around October 1985. Super Mario Bros. and had sixteen other titles to choose from alongside. It was the flagship title, although there is still nostalgia for Excitbike and Duck hunting. Super Mario Bros. has been a game-changer for the video game market and needs to be respected even if it isn’t as tight as future Mario titles.
The GameCube launched with twelve games on November 18, 2001 in North America. There are some real forgettable titles in there, but some of the best are Luigi’s mansion, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Leader Rogue, and even Super monkey ball. Luigi’s mansion gets a bad rap for not being a good Mario title at launch, but it was, and still is, a good launch game.
The Wii was launched with twenty-one games on November 19, 2006 in North America. He came packed with Wii Sports which was essential to its success. In addition to this, other notables include The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, and even Trauma center: second opinion. All he really needed was Wii Sports to show his movement skills.
The Wii U launched with thirty-four games on November 18, 2012 in North America. He came packed with Nintendo land. In addition to this, other notables include New Super Mario Bros. U and ZombiU.
There were also plenty of notable ports of good games that were perhaps too little too late, including Batman: Arkham City and Mass effect 3. Know what they are saying. If we haven’t played it, then it’s new. So for a Nintendo audience, maybe Batman and those other ports was a revelation.
The Nintendo 64 was released with two games on September 29, 1996 in North America. These were Super Mario 64 and Pilot wings 64. Super Mario 64, of course, was an instant classic. He redefined platforms in a new space. Pilot wings 64 wasn’t that revolutionary and it would be a long time before anything else really killer came out for the system.
The Game Boy was released with five games on July 31, 1989 in North America. He came packed with Tetris and the other titles on the side included Alley, Baseball, Super Mario Land, and Tennis. Of those extras, Super Mario Land was strong, as was the Tetris pack-in. This particular game has reached a crowd of older parents. Tetris was, and still is, addicting.
The Super Nintendo was also launched with five games on August 23, 1991 in North America. He came packed with Super mario world. In addition to this, other titles include Simcity, Pilotwings, Grade III, and F-Zero. All of these extras were and still are great games, but compared to Super mario world, these are just grains of dust in the SNES library. This game is often contested as one of the best Mario games ever made, if not the best.
The Nintendo Switch also launched with five games on March 3, 2017 in North America. These titles include 1-2 Switch, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginers, Super Bomberman R, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s hard to say how explosive Switch debut was because of Zelda. It wasn’t wrapped up, but having a Zelda game available at launch, for the first time since Twilight Princess, was a huge deal. The new nature of the open world has also helped.
