Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga could prove to be a ray of hope for third-party ports on the Nintendo Switch!

Nintendo hasn’t had a very positive history in terms of providing amazing third-party ports for its consoles. Simply put, the device has seen mostly cloud-based titles debut for the Switch. This is the only way for Nintendo gamers to enjoy games other than the company’s exclusives.

But this tradition of cloud support may end for good, very soon. Due to the re-launch of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, developed by Traveller’s Tales. It recently arrived for various platforms including the Switch as well. And so far, the reactions have been incredible, to say the least. Moreover, it also appears among the best Switch deals on the Online Store for $59.99.

This implies that the game has huge potential to transform the image for future third-party launches.

The same can be said about Hogwarts Legacy from studio Avalanche. The highly anticipated project is confirmed for release on Nintendo Switch later this year. And if it turns out to be good, it will be a boon for any upcoming titles that aren’t Switch exclusives.

For Switch gamers, the cloud-based gaming experience hasn’t been so smooth. Thus, they would like to see third party arrivals in the form of appropriate ports. This way they will be able to have fun in the most amazing way possible.
