(Pocket-lint) – The Nintendo Switch has proven to be a very capable competitor to the PS4 and Xbox One, while offering something else besides – in the form of portability, and it’s still just as impressive now that the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S have launched. 

And, with the Nintendo Switch Lite also going great guns, there are a ton of fans looking for the best games to buy.

That’s why we’ve gathered a list of the upcoming Switch games we’ve got our own beady eyes on. You can find them in chronological order – soonest first – and with trailers for each. 

Cyanide & Happiness Freakpocalypse: Part 1

  • Release date: 2021
  • Switch exclusive: No
  • Publisher: Serenity Forge

Cyanide and Happiness is one of our very favourite webcomics and it’s not something you’d expect to see as a Switch game as it’s often rude and features very edgy humour. With that in mind though, it might be the perfect purchase you’re looking for something different to play. 

New Pokémon Snap

  • Release date: April 30th 2021
  • Switch exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Nintendo

We’ve been waiting 20 years for a new Pokémon Snap game, and it’s finally on the way – recently announced as a new Switch game, it looks frankly delightful, and a great way to relax while taking pictures of your favourite pocket monsters. 

Bravely Default II

  • Release date: 2021
  • Switch exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Square Enix

The same team behind the Bravely series and Octopath Traveler will release a new JRPG later this year: Bravely Default II. If you love old-school turn-based skirmishes, this looks as good as they get.

Buildings have feelings too!

  • Release date: TBC 2021
  • Switch exclusive: No
  • Publisher: Merge Games

If you love city building sims but are bored of the same old formula, then this might be for you. It features gameplay where the buildings “can walk and talk to one another”, have their own hopes and fears, and feelings too.

Players will not only have to build a city but also ensure the buildings don’t die as well. No, really.

No More Heroes III

  • Release date: 2021
  • Switch exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Grasshopper Manufacture

No More Heroes III is a brand new addition to the action-adventure hack and slash franchise that’s set to be exclusive to the Nintendo Switch.

It takes place ten years after the original No More Heroes, as Travis Touchdown returns to his former home of Santa Destroy. A larger floating metropolis has appeared in the ocean as well as weird flying object high above the city. Travis is set once again to face off against a mass of assassins.

Hollow Knight: Silksong

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

  • Release date: TBC
  • Switch exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Nintendo

Although we don’t yet know the official name, we’re happy to see that the sequel to one of the most popular games on Switch is getting a sequel. That’s right The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is getting another outing. We don’t know when it is coming, but it’s been teased at E3 2019 as being in development, so that’s fairly exciting. 

Bayonetta 3 

  • Release date: TBC
  • Switch exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Nintendo

Bayonetta 3 was announced way back in 2017. There’s still no news on when it’s going to be released, but fans of the series are no doubt waiting with bated breath. 

Metroid Prime 4

  • Release date: TBC
  • Switch exclusive: Yes
  • Publisher: Nintendo

Nintendo announced a new instalment of Metroid Prime, this time for Switch, during its E3 2017 Spotlight presentation but few other details have emerged in more than a year. We do know though that Bandai Namco is working on the game as its development studio.

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

  • Release date: TBC
  • Switch exclusive: No
  • Publisher: EA

Another potentially awesome Lego Star Wars game. This one will let you play through all nine Star Wars saga films in a single game. Expect the usual humour, plenty of adventures and all your favourite Star Wars characters too.
