Everyone seems to still be enjoying the heck out of the Nintendo Switch with games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Binding of Isaac, Bomberman, and a few others, but there are many other titles coming out for Nintendo’s new console that people might not know about. There are Switch exclusives, ports, and indie remasters headed to the Switch in 2017 and beyond that you guys should know about.
One big game that I’m excited to play on my Nintendo Switch is the upcoming Yooka-Laylee, the old-school 3D platformer that’s reminiscent of games like Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie. It comes out in a few days for the other main consoles, but the Switch release has been pushed back to sometime later this year. The game is developed by some of the same people who worked on Banjo-Kazooie for the Nintendo 64.
With the Zelda train soon to be dying down, here are 15 Nintendo Switch titles that will make players turn their system on to play something other than Breath of the Wild. There are much more than fifteen games coming to the system but I decided to pick 15 that I’m kinda excited to play myself, I just have to beat Zelda first.
YOOKA-LAYLEE - TBA 2017
Playtonic Games spiritual successor is coming to the Switch sometime in 2017, a little after the other consoles, but it'll be worth it to take this colorful, 3D platformer on the go with you.
