Tencent bringing more indie and third-party games to Switch in China, including a few Ubisoft releases

Switch's library in China is starting to grow

The total number of Switch games that have been officially released in China since the console's launch in the region in December 2019 is extraordinarily low. Tencent, the company responsible for helping to bring the system to the Chinese market, has now updated the "future release" section on their official website with some more indie and third-party titles apparently set for an upcoming launch in China.

Only one game on the list, Neon Abyss, has received a scheduled release period, and will be launching on the Nintendo eShop in China sometime in Summer 2020.

Seven total indie games have been added to Tencent's website, alongside three Ubisoft titles (a China exclusive Rabbids party game, Rayman Legends, and Just Dance 2020), and one release from SNK (Samurai Shodown).

Samurai Shodown updated to Version 1.72

Samurai Shodown has been updated to Version 1.72. It seems this is a minor update, as the only notes given say that the update fixes a bug that happens in battles. If we get anymore details on what this patch does, we'll be sure to add the specifics to this post.
