Should Nintendo include more JRPG games for the Switch?

Tales of Symphonia (2)

As of right now the Nintendo  does not have too many games available for the Switch console considering the fact that it was released back in March 2017.    However, when it comes down to games released for the Nintendo Switch many people are wondering which gaming genre would do the best on this hybrid console.  As of right now we have games such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which is an RPG game along with Mario Kart Deluxe 8 which is a racing title.  Soon we will have an action adventure/platform game known as Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch sometime later in 2017.  When it comes down to gaming genres some would probably question which one is the best when it comes down to Nintendo based consoles.  Since Mario is considered to be the main mascot for Nintendo people be inclined to say that platform based titles are the best for Nintendo titles.

However, its difficult to tell which genre sells the most on Nintendo based consoles.  For the original Wii console the Sports Resorts game sold over 82 million units worldwide since its released in 2006.  Also, Mario Kart 8 was the best selling Wii U game following its release following its release in 2014.  A majority of the best selling games for the Wii and the Wii U were generally Mario based platform titles such as Super Mario 3D World, or fighting titles such as Super Smash Bros for the Wii-U.   If the Nintendo Switch had included more JRPG titles they could possibly be overshadowed by Mario titles that are more popular and marketable to consumers in western countries.
