This year is going to be great for Nintendo Switch players. There are many games that are coming up and have the players hyped up. Some of these are brand new, and others are sequels to much-played and loved games.

In general, there’s a move towards hand-held devices and mobile games, as younger players prefer them to consoles. There’s also a preference for simple games that don’t include complicated plots or require the player to be fully engaged at all times. This has led to an increased interest in casino apps to play with crypto as well as cozy games. 

We’ve compiled a list of upcoming Nintendo Switch games that are coming out in the next couple of months.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong

 Mario vs. Donkey Kong is the first installment of this classic game for Nintendo Switch. Just like the original, it’s a puzzle game in which the player takes the role of Mario. You’ll complete puzzles throughout the game to collect the mini-Mario robot toys and eventually defeat Donkey Kong.

The puzzles are mostly about which switch to press, lever to pull, and path to take. Players also need to collect items and keys that will get them from one stage to another. The game gets progressively more difficult but still manageable.


 Promenade is an adventure game in 3D that’s available for Nintendo Switch and other consoles and platforms. It’s inspired by the classics of the genre, such as Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, and Spyro. The player moves through the world and encounters different enemies and friends, with every stage having its own aesthetic and unique charm.

The goal of the game is to fix the Great Elevator that has been broken and to use the cogs scattered far and wide throughout the game. It’s recommended for all ages as it’s not violent and has a very whimsical look and feel to it.


Inkulinati is a game that stands out in terms of gameplay and aesthetics. It’s a strategy game, and recently, there’s a push for strategy games on hand-held devices. A medieval manuscript inspires the art style of Inkulinati.

There are no battles in the game; instead, the players are drawing and creating unique features. The full release is coming at the end of February, and the game has been in the works for the past two years. It was developed by Yaza Games.

Star Wars: Dark Forces Remaster 

Star Wars: Dark Forces was first made in 1995 and is now being remastered for modern consoles. The Rebel Alliance discovers the Death Star, a planet-destroying weapon in a galaxy under the Empire’s grip. Former Imperial Stormtrooper Kyle Katarn joins the Rebels to infiltrate the Empire from within.

The main appeal of this version is the nostalgia for the original and the fact that there are players who will experience both formats. The appeal of Star Wars was somewhat diminished once Disney took it over, but the appeal of our childhood games is still very strong.

NSwitch UnicornOverlord 03 11 Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games To Look Forward To | VGLeaks 2.0

Unicorn Overlord

 Unicorn Overlord is a game made by the same team that made 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and Odin Sphere. The game follows exiled prince Alain on a quest to reclaim his kingdom from the rogue General Valmore. The players need to assemble an army of 60 different characters from humans, elves, and all the other creators of the world.

The game provides an RPG tactical experience with fast, exciting gameplay and an innovative battle system. Some claim it will be a game of the year for Nintendo Switch players since it’s also available for other platforms.

Princess Peach: Showtime!

 Princess Peach is a popular children’s game released for Nintendo Switch only. It focuses on Peach and several Toads visiting a Sparkle Theater to watch a play, only for mysterious foes called the Wicked Grape and Sour Bunch to appear.

The game also introduces a new character called Stella. It’s a flower accompanying the Princess on her journey and adds a lot to the gameplay. The game is made for all ages, and there’s no violence whatsoever. The most dangerous tool that the Princess Peach will use on her journey is a ribbon. The game is set to release in March.

Contra: Operation Galuga

 Contra: Operation Galuga is an arcade platform game made for Nintendo Switch and all the big consoles and platforms. It’s not exactly an original game, as the team behind it – Konami – is reviving one of its old IPs from the 1980s but giving it a modern twist.

The players will face a relentless Red Falcon terrorist group as they seize control of the Galuga Islands near New Zealand. The game has a slick and modern design but also reflects the 80s with sounds and an aesthetic outlook. There’s an Arcade and Story mode, which is also a callback to the retro games.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes

 Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is another game that takes advantage of the player’s nostalgia. It’s a classic JRPG with a modern twist. The players can choose between 100 different characters that exist in a war-torn world in a tale woven across diverse cultures and alliances.

The stakes get bigger as the player progresses through the game, and in the end, the fate of the entire world is determined by the outcome of the battles. It will be available for all platforms, including PCs. The publisher of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is 505 games, and the developer is Rabbit & Bear Studios.

Penny’s Big Breakaway

 Set in the world of Penny and Yo-Yo, Penny’s Big Breakaway is a dynamic 3D platformer with innovative gameplay. Join Penny, a street performer with grand aspirations, and her mischievous Yo-Yo, transformed by a Cosmic String into a snacking sensation. The two navigate the auditions and fight against Emperor Edie’s penguin army.

The game will come out for all major platforms, including PCs. Evening Star develops it, and it’s suited to players of all ages, as there’s no violence or scary imagery. There’s a single-player mode, but two players can also play it as a part of the same story.

Rift of the Necrodancer

 Rift of the Necrodancer is the product of the Brace Yourself Games, which is known for its music games. It’s a mixture of a music game and an RPG suited to players ages ten and older. It comes out on Switch and PCs. 

It is a lane-based game where players rhythmically attack the monsters that come down each lane. The game also features minigames more closely resembling the Rhythm Heaven series, for which the studio is most well-known.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD 

 Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD is a remastered version of the 2013 3DS game Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. It’s a puzzle adventure game made for Nintendo Switch. Luigi, who’s armed with the Poltergust 5000, is in multiple mansions, solving puzzles, capturing new ghosts, and completing missions for Professor E. Gadd. Regardless of this aesthetic, the game is rated for all ages.

Nintendo created the game as it has exclusive rights to everything related to Mario. Some may say that it may be too early to get nostalgic about 2013, but some players are.
