We’re moving into the warmer months now, and it’s also looking to get warmer in the video game release schedule.

We’ve put together some of the biggest Switch games to come over the next few months below, including a few first-party releases, some choice-switch ports, and a juicy remaster. And at the bottom of the page you will also find a selection of the best accessories that hit stores.
So relax and prepare for a nice roll through the biggest Switch games to come over the next few months ….

The exploratory underwater survival adventure Subnautica is coming to Switch next year with its sequel Subnautica: Below Zero. This well-received pair has been available on other platforms for years (Below zero in terms of early access), but developer Unknown Worlds has been working hard on the Switch versions ̵
A surprise announcement from Nintendo Direct back in February, Mythopy is possibly not the 3DS remaster we would have chosen from the system’s sterling catalog, but it was a charming little Mii-powered RPG that we enjoyed in 2017, despite the fact that our heads were turned by the new Nintendo console on blocks at the time.
We’re fascinated to see how Grezzo’s Switch version holds up against the library of quality RPGs on Switch.
Atlus is bringing this classic PS2-era RPG to Switch in remastered form in late May.
What about SMTIIINHDR (as all the cool kids call it) is remastered, exactly? Well, the 3D models and backgrounds have sprung up for this release (which comes eighteen years after the original), and there will also be new voice work and additional levels of difficulty – plus the ability to interrupt the game at any time and resume when convenient. The last point may not be sound important, but it’s a gift if you play on the bus and your switch is dying. We look forward to this.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection brings together the trilogy of 3D hack-and-slash games from Team Ninja in a deadly little package on Switch. You will unleash torrents of stylish ultra-violence in the shoes of the famous ninja, Ryu Hayabusa, and relive some of the 360 / PS3 era’s greatest action games on a console you can get in your pocket.
If you have big pockets, this is it. Still more comfortable to have a switch than a launch PS3 squeezed around your person, no?
Unveiled in February 2021 Nintendo Direct, this is the long awaited return to the fairways for Mushroom Kingdom’s finest. Mario Golf: Super Rush is set to contain RPG elements in line with the famous Mario Golf on Game Boy Color plus a brand new spin on the game in the titular Super Rush mode, which has multiple players running around the course in Nintendo’s “speed golf”.
It looks manic and fun if the trailer is something to go by and we can’t wait to get things started. We love a pampered walk so we take a 3-tree and hit the fairways soon.
