We reviewed every Switch launch exclusive, see how they measure up

In case you want something other than Zelda

Although the Switch’s launch lineup seemed weak at first (it was basically just Zelda), the good news came rolling in.

Fast RMX was announced just a week before the console arrived as a launch title. Snipperclips, which wasn’t even dated until just several weeks ago, was dated. Shovel Knight’s third expansion Specter of Torment was confirmed as a timed launch exclusive, and Blaster Master Zero would hit Japan on launch day before arriving west the week after.

It’s a wonderful start (better than a lot of other consoles in the past decade), and it hopefully should get better from here. Check out our reviews for the exclusies and ports below in case you’re wondering what to get after Zelda.
