Understandably, it’s sometimes hard to choose the good games to play among tons of promising ones; and such is the case with Nintendo Switch. If that’s the case, and you came looking for some good upcoming games for Nintendo Switch, don’t you worry anymore.
Here, we’ve compiled a list for switch gamers with our best picks of upcoming Nintendo Switch games for 2021 and beyond.
Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games
1. Shin Megami Tensei V
Shin Megami Tensei V is an upcoming RPG strategy game from Altus and was revealed during E3 2021. The game will incorporate many features from the previous titles in the Shin Megami Tensei series and new mechanics. SMT V will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive upon its launch on November 12, 2021.
2. Sky: Children of the light
Sky: The Children of Light is probably the most beautiful mobile game you’ll ever play. However, the game is not a new one; it was initially released for iOS, followed by an Android release. Having earned a nomination for the game award for the best mobile game, this game is a must-try for those who haven’t. Sky: The Children of Light will release for Nintendo Switch on June 29, 2021.
3. Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of hope
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of hope is a tactical RPG game developed by Ubisoft for Nintendo Switch. The game was revealed at Nintendo Direct E3 2021. Interestingly, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of hope was an unexpected reveal, but a welcomed one. This Mario + Rabbids game is due to release in 2022. However, we suggest you keep an eye out for this one if you haven’t played a Mario RPG game.
4. Splatoon 3
Another addition to the Splatoon series, Splatoon 3, will be coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022. Splatoon 3 will be a direct sequel to Splatoon 2, which has a single players story mode alongside various multiplayer modes. Hopefully, we’ll get to see some additions to the narrative-driven story mode of Splatoon 2, along with some interesting multiplayer modes.
5. WarioWare: Get it together!
If you’re new to this, Wario is the archenemy to Mario in the Nintendo Mario series. Additionally, unlike the Mario series, Warioware games are a combination of smaller game compilations. Warioware: Get it together is set to release on September 10, 2021; moreover, it is the tenth game in the Warioware series.
6. Metroid Dread
Finally, a Metroid game, Nintendo certainly took its time to develop a new Metroid game called Metroid Dread. Metroid Dread is an upcoming action-adventure game in the highly successful series on Nintendo’s handheld console. Yes, the game is coming out this year on October 8, 2021.
7. Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is an upcoming game in the much-loved Pokémon series by Nintendo. However, Pokémon Legends won’t be your regular Pokémon game. Instead, the game seems to offer a Breath of the wild-like feel.
Moreover, from the trailers and reveals so far, the game appears to be an open-world type, with its story set before any Pokémon game released yet. Pokémon Legends: Arceus will come to the Switch sometime in early 2022.
8. Fall Guys
Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is an offbeat battle royale game that took the gaming community by storm upon its launch. While the game saw huge success when launched, it failed to capitalize upon that with a huge Nintendo Switch player base.
However, it seems that Devolver Digital is all set to make things right by launching Fall Guys for Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, Fall Guys for Nintendo has been delayed and is expected to launch sometime later this year or early 2022.
9. Advance Wars 1+2: Re-boot Camp
A Nintendo Gameboy classic, Advance Wars is ready to debut on Nintendo Switch on December 3, 2021. A turn-based strategy game, the first Advance Wars was released for Nintendo Gameboy almost 2 decades back and has been loved by many. Now, Nintendo is releasing the remastered versions of Advance Wars 1 and 2 for its handheld console.
10. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild 2
Nintendo revealed the upcoming sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wind. However, not much is revealed about the game. Meanwhile, we know that Breath of the Wild 2 is still developing and will launch sometime in 2022.
With this comes the end for the list of our best picks of upcoming games for Nintendo Switch in 2021 & beyond. Presumably, there are many good upcoming games for Nintendo’s handheld console. Since we wanted to make a list crisp, we only included 10 of them. We hope you’re excited about these titles on Nintendo Switch as much as we are.
