Gintama Rumble – January 18

World to the West – January 18
Like the Escapists 2, this is a game that has already been released but is being ported over to the Nintendo Switch. World to the West is a follow up to Teslagrad and has a similar top-down action adventure feel.
Death Mark – January 19
Switch definitely does lack in the horror department, and Death Mark is going to be perfect to fill in the gap. The game is made for PS 4 along with the Switch and will excite fans of the horror adventure genre due to its unique nature and story.
Kirby Battle Royale
This is a part of the Kirby franchise and will try to bring the experience of PUBG to the 3DS. I mean, if a concept works then why try something new, right?

Lost Sphere – January 23

Railway Empire – January 26
As the name suggests, this game tasks you with building your very own Railway Network. The concept seems incredibly boring to me, but if Euro Truck Simulator can have such a dedicated fanbase, then I am sure this game will also be a massive hit.
