All Major Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games

The Nintendo Switch has been a runaway success, proving that raw power is not the be-all and end-all for consoles. Through a combination of Nintendo's first-party games, a solid selection of triple-A third-party titles, and all the indie projects anyone could ever want, the Switch has amassed a stellar library that can match most platforms in terms of quality and quantity.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are two of the greatest games of the last decade, but there is always a chance that the best Switch game has yet to be released. 2022 and 2023 were overall pretty great years for Nintendo's platforms. In just 2023, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, Metroid Prime Remastered, Pikmin 4, Super Mario Wonder, and Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp were all console exclusives.

Here's a look at all the major titles we can expect to see on the Nintendo Switch in 2024 and beyond. Which big Nintendo Switch games have release dates? Please note the focus is on North American release dates.

April 2024 Nintendo Switch Games

Grounded, SAGA, & More

April 2024 is not an especially stacked month for the Nintendo Switch, although there are a couple of exciting games set to come out. Grounded will be making its Nintendo debut, and Obsidian's game has garnered almost universal praise since its debut. Provided it runs well on the hybrid console, this title should be an easy recommendation for anyone looking for something that blends survival, crafting, exploration, and co-op.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade: Wrath of the Mutants looks set to be a beat 'em up throwback, while people craving an RPG can check out Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron also merits a mention, as the port has a cool visual style and an interesting story.

May 2024 Nintendo Switch Games

Endless Ocean, Paper Mario, & More

May 2024 should be an exciting period for Nintendo Switch owners as the console has a surprisingly stacked lineup, particularly when it comes to indie releases. Endless Ocean Luminous is an unexpected but welcome sequel, and it could provide the definitive diving experience. Biomutant has largely garnered a mixed reputation over the last few years, and the Switch version will need to knock everything out of the park to turn things around. If well-optimized, the open-world game could be an impressive addition to the hybrid system's library.

The month's biggest release will almost certainly be Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, a modern remaster of a classic GameCube RPG that is still considered by many to be among the mascot's greatest spin-off adventures. Other notable May 2024 Switch games are Read Only Memories: Neurodiver, Crown Wars: The Black Prince, the Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth trilogy, World of Goo 2, and Potion Permit: Complete Edition.

June 2024 Nintendo Switch Games

Luigi's Mansion, Super Monkey Ball, & More

While 2024's halfway point is largely headlined by releases on non-Nintendo consoles, the Switch is receiving a few goodies as well. Capcom's Monster Hunter Stories is making its way to a bizarre selection of consoles, including the Switch. The 3DS original is a fairly enjoyable turn-based spin-off with a monster-catching element, and it will likely hit the mark with fans of the sequel.

On the same day that Capcom will be porting Monster Hunter Stories, Atlus will be publishing Shin Megami Tensei 5: Vengeance, another game with a taming system. Although a massive release by most metrics, SMT 5's presence on the Nintendo Switch slightly mutes Vengeance's allure, even if the latter will be the definitive version.

June 2024's final week is particularly exciting as it contains two Switch exclusives: Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble and Luigi's Mansion 2 HD. The former should be another great entry in a franchise that rarely drops the ball; meanwhile, the latter will revitalize a 3DS exclusive that can be a touch divisive.

  • June 6: The Smurfs — Village Party (PC, PS5, PS4, Switch, XBX/S, XBO)
  • June 11: Battle of Rebels (Switch)
  • June 13: Dungeon Slasher (Switch)
  • June 14: Monster Hunter Stories (PC, PS4, Switch)
  • June 14: Shin Megami Tensei 5: Vengeance (PC, PS5, PS4, Switch, XBX/S, XBO)
  • June 18: #BLUD (PC, PS4, Switch, XBO)
  • June 18: Dunk Dunk (Switch)
  • June 20: Radiant Silvergun Collector's Box (Switch)
  • June 20: Rusted Moss (Switch)
  • June 21: Hatch Tales (Switch)
  • June 25: Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble (Switch)
  • June 27: A Street Cat's Tale 2 (Switch)

July 2024 Nintendo Switch Games

The Legend of Heroes, Ace Combat, & More

The Nintendo Switch's games lineup for July 2024 is still in its infancy. Still, a few projects have penciled their names into the calendar. The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak launches a new story arc in Nihon Falcom's beloved JRPG franchise, and the gameplay combines real-time and turn-based combat. Ace Combat 7 is making its way to the Switch, providing flight sim fans with (hopefully) a great option that can keep them entertained for a while. Bo: Path of the Teal Lotus also looks good.

  • July 4: Dragon Saikyou Ou Zukan: Battle Colosseum (Switch)
  • July 4: Run for Money: The Great Mission (Switch)
  • July 5: The Legend of Heroes: Trails through Daybreak (PC, PS5, PS4, Switch)
