Nintendo’s upcoming ninth-generation console, currently called the Switch, will be released in March 2017. Here are the games expected to be available for its launch and beyond.

For a console coming in March 2017, Nintendo has been dangerously tight-lipped about the Switch until now. However, as you’d expect so close to the launch of a console, hundreds of developers around the world are already working on games for the format, using early versions of the Nintendo Switch console. And Nintendo can’t keep every mouth shut.

Below is a list of confirmed games being made for Nintendo's new console.

    Will there be a new fire emblem release?

      Staff
      Brodie | January 18, 2017

      Hi Guy,

      There will be indeed. We don’t know too much about it at this stage other than its name, Fire Emblem Warriors. Keep an eye out tomorrow at 11:00am AEST. Nintendo are dedicating a stream to Fire Emblem’s upcoming mobile game, so there’s a chance we will here more about the Fire Emblem Switch title.

      Thanks,
      Brodie

    Can we get “The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past” for it as well? I would buy it if it has that.; )

      Hi Mrcookies,

      Thank you for your enquiry.

      There’s no information yet if Nintendo will port ‘The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past’ for Nintendo Switch. But since this classic favorite is part of their Virtual Console service, there may be a chance that this could also be available to Nintendo Switch.

      Kind regards,
      Jason

    Hi Nintendo,

    I noticed that Rare is not a Nintendo Switch Partner. Will Killer Instinct be released on Nintendo Switch?

      Staff
      Jason | November 25, 2016

      Hi Ann,

      Thank you for your enquiry,

      There’s a slim chance that they will port or develop Killer Instinct for Nintendo Switch since Rare is now focused on developing games for Microsoft or Xbox. Please regularly check out this link for updates on games for Nintendo Switch.

      Cheers,
      Jason

      Hi Ethan!

      The Nintendo NX was announced as the Nintendo Switch last week. In the reveal trailer (which you can catch here), Nintendo showed off a brief glimpse of Mario Kart on the Nintendo Switch. Exciting stuff, hey?

      All the best,

      Brodie

    Do you have heard any information for NX about having any Professor Layton game?
    Best regards to all the fans of Nintendo!

      Brodie | September 12, 2016

      Hi Limoncello P,

      Nothing has been hinted at or announced as of yet. With that said, the Nintendo NX will supposedly blur the lines between console and handheld, so it’s possible we will see traditionally handheld titles like Layton and Pokémon on the NX.

      Thanks,

    Will Pokemon series come out for Nintendo NX 2017?

      Staff
      Brodie | August 26, 2016

      Hi Pokémon’s Fan,

      According to sources “close to Nintendo” there will be a Pokémon game within the first six months of the NX’s release.

      Here’s hoping!

    Square Enix said they have no intention to bring FFXV to the NX and Eidos said Deus Ex: Mankind Divided won’t come to the NX either, so you guys may want to scratch them off the list.

    What’s up with the “NEX” in the titles?

      Default Gravatar
      Geneva | July 10, 2016

      I believe the final name is NEX as a throwback to NES and a play on the word “Next”.

      Staff
      Chris | July 9, 2016

      Hi Rubens,

      The same source that leaked the games lists, also believes that the Nintendo NX will be officially called the Nintendo Next on release, which will be abbreviated to NEX – similar to the old NES and SNES days.

      I think that would be a great name personally, but we’ll have to wait and see if Nintendo agrees.

      Cheers

      Chris

    No Splatoon 2?! Too many crappy games by Ubisoft, Nintendo! How could you let them do that?!
    Until anything happens, I’m getting a PS4 to play Hatsune Miku instead of this list of crud.
