When You Find It, Buy A Switch

A friend on Twitter recently posted an image of all the Nintendo releases coming between now and Christmas, and it is really impressive. Mario and Rabbids, Mario Odyssey, and Splatoon highlight a long list of great titles coming to Nintendo Switch before the end of the year.

Unlike during the Wii U launch, Nintendo has understood with the Switch that people want games, and lots of games. Nintendo did right by their consumers by launching The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild alongside the unit launch, followed up by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe the next month, and tons of other great and unique games, including Snake Pass!

It’s about the games, and thankfully, Nintendo knows this already. Check out the image below for all the releases through the holiday! Under the image, find our quick 1-2 sentence breakdown of what’s coming soon!


Splatoon – if you liked the original, you probably don’t want to miss this release! I heard the new Salmon Run mode is hard, and another reason for hardcore players to dive into #2!

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle – this is a unique one for Nintendo as they don’t often licence their characters out to other companies. If you were a fan of Code Name S.T.E.A.M., you will find a lot of the same ideas and concepts here, but in Mario form (which is always better)!

Pokken Tournament Deluxe – we love this title on the Wii U, so with new fighters and new fighting modes, there is no reason why we would also enjoy this on Nintendo Switch!

Super Mario Odyssey – this was definitely our E3 Game of the Show, and from all accounts, it could become the 2017 Game of the Year, even when you factor in Breath of the Wild. It’s been a long time since we have received an open world, 3D Mario title, so embrace this one!

Fire Emblem – I’ve never been a huge Fire Emblem fan, but the games always manage to capture my attention for long periods of time. Yet another release we are looking forward too at!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – If you played Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii U, you will remember how ambitious of a title it was, and how it maximized the Wii U’s processing power. If the work that went into 1 goes into 2, we are in for a real treat in December, which will carry players well into 2018!
