A number of third-party developers are showing support for the newest member of the Nintendo family. Here are the games that have been confirmed so far.
Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition
Next up from Ubi is Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition. The ultimate version of the title includes all of the game's traditional features and promises some brand new surprises.
Series creator, Michel Ancel, answered a few questions about the limbless fella's Switch debut.
Lastly, Steep, Ubisoft's open world Alp 'em up, is set to launch on Switch and will be further enhanced via a free update later in the year which opens up the slopes of Alaska.
You’ll be able to take the action online to team up with friends and compete for high scores, or simply roam about together.
Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers
Capcom are bringing Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers to the console.
All of the classic characters will be in attendance, including two "new" fighters - Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. The latter, we presume, will be just as violent as his counterpart.
Players will be able to choose to fight with the classic graphics or enjoy a completely new modern look.
System 3's Constructor is another launch day title. With Nintendo Switch, you'll be able to build, sabotage, and cause chaos while at home or on the move.
The game will also allow up to four people to play with or against each other in a plethora of multiplayer modes.
Super Bomberman R
Super Bomberman R will also launch alongside the console. This latest instalment features a full campaign mode (playable in co-op with a friend), epic boss battles and the mayhem of the classic 8-player battle mode.
Activision's Skylanders Imaginators will be hitting the new console just in time to see the release of some of the most anticipated new characters, as well as a brand new expansion pack.
Those without a Portal of Power won't have any problems as Nintendo Switch provides unique ways to play, such as the introduction of a vast digital library that allows players to easily load and store more than 300 toys from the franchise.
Due for release in march, Fast RMX is a futuristic racing title from developers Shin’en. The Wipeout look-a-like can be played locally with up to four players or online with up to eight. There’s over 30 tracks to speed through in 15 different racing machines.
Has-Been Heroes by Frozenbyte Games is an action strategy game with a rogue-like twist. Here are some of the key features:
Puyo Puyo Tetris
Two puzzle games collide in Puyo Puyo Tetris. The single player adventure mode offers ten unique acts, each with ten stages featuring different characters from the Puyo Puyo and Tetris universes.
There are also local and online multiplayer modes, as well as a solo arcade mode, which allows you to play multiplayer games against the CPU and take on some single player challenges.
RiME is an open world, third-person action adventure game from Tequila Works which is slated for release in spring. It was originally scheduled to be a PS4 exclusive, before the project went quiet and was subsequently re-revealed as a multiplatform game.
Disgae 5 Complete
Disgaea 5 Complete is also due sometime in spring, containing the base game and all its DLC. Also releasing is Disgaea 5 Complete Limited Edition, which includes a physical copy of the game, a 2 disc soundtrack, clip-on Prinny, art book, a collector’s box and a mystery item.
Insanely popular RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, will be releasing for the Switch in autumn of this year. It’s not yet clear whether it will be the standard version that released on the previous generation of consoles or the recently released Special Edition that includes all DLC and the option to install mods.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is planned for release in 2017 and, although it’s a sequel, it stars a new set of characters.
Another huge title making its way to Switch is Minecraft. You’ll be able to explore, build and fight on the go when it launches later this year.
Football fans will be able to get to grips with one of the most beloved sports franchises, as FIFA is coming to the new console. Interestingly, it isn’t FIFA 17 or any other dated title, so we’ll have to wait and see exactly what it will have to offer.
SEGA’s Sonic Mania should be with us by the end of spring. The blue speedster has had a rough time since he went all 3D on us, but this latest adventure will appeal to fans of the classic 2D games. There are three playable characters (no prizes for guessing who they are) and even a new move - the drop dash.
I Am Setsuna
I Am Setsuna is a JRPG in which once a decade, the residents of the island offer a sacrifice to a mysterious fiend. One year it grew violent before the sacrifice was due and so the islanders attempted to calm it by offering Setsuna, a girl with powers of enchantment.
Syberia 3 follows the adventures of an American lawyer as she travels across Europe and Russia.
She finds herself adrift on a makeshift boat and, after being rescued by the Youkol people, decides to help the nomads fulfil their odd ancestral tradition, as they accompany their snow ostriches on their seasonal migration.
NBA 2K will be joining the sports line-up. A Nintendo Switch trailer was released for NBA 2K17 some time ago, but it looks like it will be the 2018 title that makes an appearance in September.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 features a brand new - and much bigger - hub city, new characters and bosses, and more in-depth character customisation options.
The sequel will allow players to create and train their own warrior, equip them with powerful skills and fight new enemies to restore the original story of the Dragon Ball series.
