Nintendo Switch games list

This Nintendo Switch Games list will highlight some of the most anticipated games for the switch.  For more info on the console itself please see my post, what is Nintendo Switch about.  Here is the Switch games list below:

Nintendo Switch is set to be released on March 3rd 2017.  I for one am very excited about some of the games Nintendo has set to be released.  The games will be in cartridge form which is pretty nice considering the switch is both a handheld device and a console.  You don’t want to be dealing with discs while on the go.  Disc games are much easier to damage.  Don’t worry these aren’t those old school cartridges you need to blow in to get them to work.  You will also be able to download games from the online store as well.  Below you will find my Nintendo switch games list, which includes the most anticipated Switch games.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Nintendo Switch games list

I for one am extremely excited to play Mario Kart on the switch.  It’s going to basically be an enhanced version of the Wii U game with some extras.  I’ve always loved Mario Kart, so being able to play it with a sharper picture or on the hand held device is a big plus for me.  Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will sport 1080p resolution and will be released on April 28th 2017.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo Switch games List

Zelda is without a doubt one of the most anticipated games to be announced on the switch.  I am anxious to see this game in action.  I have high hopes for it.  The game will have 900p resolution in dock mode and 720p in handheld mode and comes on the same day as the switch does.  For more on this game please see my Zelda breath of the wild review.

1-2 Switch

This is basically the switch version of Wii sports but instead of sports competition, it’s different head to head activities such as unlocking safes and milking cows.  I’m sure it will be fun and family friendly just like Wii sports was.  Hopefully they do end up coming out with Wii sports too.  I was always a big fan of the bowling.  This game will release with the switch.

Super Mario Odyssey

Here’s a promising title for all you Mario lovers.  It’s an open world style Mario game similar to Mario on GameCube.  It should be a lot of fun to play but it doesn’t come out until the 2017 holidays season.  I’m not sure why they would wait so long to release a Mario game on a on a Nintendo System.

Splatoon 2

The sequel to Splatoon is sure to be fun game with 4 on 4 battles.  The game supports the use of the switch Pro controller sold separately but it is not a necessity.  This game will be released on December 29th 2017.

Fifa

Its not clear what version of Fifa this is.  Is it the current 17 or the upcoming Fifa 18 or something different all together just for the switch.  Only time will tell but for Fifa fans it’s certainly something to get excited about if you plan on purchasing this console.  This game will release on December 29th 2017

Nintendo Switch Games List conclusion

Many of these games for the switch are available on other systems but the ability to play them on the switch in hand held mode is sure to draw some attention.  I love the idea of being able to play Skyrim or Zelda while I’m traveling without having to lug around a console.

There are several publishers out there that have jumped on board with the switch, so we can speculate a little on some other games that may be coming to the switch.  It’s hard to tell exactly which one of these titles will actually make it though.

We know Bethesda is on the list but we haven’t heard of any of there big titles other than Skyrim being released on Switch.  We know Square Enix is supporting, so we will likely see Final Fantasy 15 on the Switch.  EA is also supporting the Switch, so hopefully Battlefield 1 will be on the switch.   Since Ubisoft is another supporting publisher, so maybe we will see an assassins creed title or Watch Dogs 2.

We are sure to see many more titles announced as we approach the release date of the switch.  I will be updating this list with other major titles as they are released.  Be sure to check back regularly to see what other great titles we can count on.

  • Great Post! I remember Playing Mario on Gameboy first (remember those?) and later on Nintendo. I am happy to see these games are updated for future generations. I heard a lot about Zelda and the Nintendo Switch.So as you may have guessed my favorite titles from your List are the Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Odessey and Zelda. Can’t wait for the reviews!

    • Dira, the games you mentioned from my list are the ones I’m looking forward to the most as well. There are sure to be some other great Nintendo Switch Games but those 3 are the ones I can’t wait to play. I will be putting up reviews shortly. Thanks for commenting.

  • I am actually really new to Nintendo games and I really would love to play Mario Kart but I think I want to play more action game than racing. And I heard that Zelda is so good.

    Do you think I should start with Breath of the Wild or other game of it?

    • Honestly you should start with what ever game interests you most. You do want to check user ratings on games and look for games that are recommended by gamers and on websites. Out of the ones that have high ratings I would pick the one you think you would like to play. Zelda Breath of the Wild is sure to be a good game. I’m sure you will enjoy it. thanks

  • Hi Bill, I am quite excited about the Nintendo Switch actually, I have been a long time fan of the Nintendo, and still have my N64, a couple of gameboys and 2 x Wii.

    I used to play Mario Kart and Wii sports with the kids, and from your list I am really looking forward to trying out Super Mario Odyssey and am super excited to get my hands on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

    Best wishes

    Neil

    • Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment Neil. Looks like you share my enthusiasm for the same games. It’s a shame super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe didn’t come out when the Nintendo Switch was released. We will just have to wait. One of the reasons I love Nintendo is it’s a great way to have fun with the family. Take care and may you have many funique filled hours with your family on the switch.
