Man, the Nintendo Switch holiday season looks packed

Switch Holiday Releases 2

Pokemon, Metroid, SMT, Advance Wars

Are you wondering what Nintendo (and its partners) have in store for the rest of the year? Over on Reddit, ieatdragonz has you covered.

We all saw Nintendo reveal a ton of stuff at E3 2021. It’s a lot to parse! Nintendo fans are no stranger to handy little infographics, and this one is a lovely representation of what everyone has to look forward to.

I mean, in June we have a ton of third-party games, including a few ports of existing projects like Tony Hawk and Worms Rumble. Then next month it starts heating up a bit with exclusives like Monster Hunter Stories 2 and Skyward Sword HD. Then just a month later we’re getting No More Heroes III, a fairly huge exclusive; before going into overdrive in September with a few heavy-hitters like WarioWare: Get It Together.

But October is where it really gets insane. A new 2D Metroid, alongside Mario Party Superstars: both exclusives for the Switch. Then in November we’re getting the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes, as well as Shin Megami Tensei V. Oh, and don’t forget the Zelda Game & Watch is out in November too. December rounds things out with the Advance Wars remakes, and I’m sure something else will pop up eventually with some future Direct.

Amid all of that, 2021 still has some unknown releases, including the Spelunky 2 Switch port. And even more big names are slated for 2022 and beyond. Phew! It’s going to be a long year filled with plenty of games.
