Saw this earlier today, and I was rather surprised.
I guess it may have todo with how differentregions see different systems differently. Western fans see the Switch's newfound third party support a good opportunity to discover new games, while in Japan, everyone has a PS4 anyway. There's also the fact that these third party games are often multiplatform sequels to PS4/Vita games.

WayForward announced the fifth Shantae game today.
I'm a little surprised at the announcement. Last I heard, director Matt Bozon wanted to take a break from the series after working on Half-Genie Hero for so many years. Also, how can they make a new one so quickly?
Still, I'm looking forward to seeing more about it, even tho I never bought any of the DLC for the last game.

Wonder Boy Returns is coming to Switch in a "Remix" version.
I love the original Wonder Boy, but I haven't heard too many good things about Wonder Boy Returns. I suppose it's encouraging that Ryuichi Nishizawa seems to have been a little more involved with the Remix, so maybe they've ironed out the wrinkles, but this may be a "wait for reviews and/or a sale" situation for me.

So, the Sega Ages version of Wonder Boy in Monster Land is "coming soon," and will apparently include a "joystick rattle button" option.
If you don't know, you can make money appear in the game by jumping in certain places, but there was a bug in the arcade version where if you jostled the joystick back and forth while doing so, it would give you a lot more money. Players typically abuse this to make it a little easier to get through the game, although it's difficult to do with a d-pad or thumb stick. So now, hilariously, M2 is just adding a button to do it for you! (It can be disabled, though.)
