Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games Include Pokemon In 2018, New Metroid Sometime Later

A newly leaked release schedule for a number of upcoming Nintendo Switch games have apparently revealed the release dates of a large number of different games, including among other things the upcoming Nintendo Switch Pokemon game, and the upcoming Metroid title, which was announced at this past Nintendo E3 showing.

The release schedule talked about a number of either upcoming or already released games such as Detective Pikachu, Kirby Battle Royale, Bayonetta on the Nintendo Switch, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Dragon Quest Builders, Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and other things like that. However, there are also a number of other games that have yet to get any release information.,

A variety of other upcoming Nintendo Switch games are also listed, such as the Pokemon Switch game (which is slated to come out in 2018 or sometimes later), Nintendo Labo Toy-Con kits, the Definitive Edition of Hyrule Warriors, The World Ends With You: Final Remix, a new Fire Emblem game, Octopath Traveler, and Bayonetta 3.

All of these games are likely going to get actual concrete announcements across the next year in various Nintendo Direct games or Nintendo’s E3 conference in June, but there’s no telling when exactly each of these will be released. They could be delayed or not be coming out at all, but that all depends on the various developers and Nintendo’s own standards.

Either way, it’s nice to see that we have semi-concrete dates and release windows across a lot of Nintendo games for this year, especially with a number of either well-regarded or highly anticipated games coming soon to the console. Games like The World Ends With You, Kirby, a new Bayonetta game, and more are all likely to sell more Switches (especially considering Pokemon moving from a handheld console to the Switch.)
