The Nintendo Switch's library is vast, and it is constantly growing. Here are all the upcoming major Switch games and their release dates.

The Nintendo Switch has been a runaway success, proving that raw power is not the be-all and end-all for consoles. Through a combination of Nintendo's first-party games, a solid selection of triple-A third-party titles, and all the indie projects anyone could ever want, the Switch has amassed a stellar library that can match most platforms in terms of quality and quantity.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are two of the greatest games of the last five years, but there is always a chance that the best Nintendo Switch game has yet to be released. 2021 produced Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, Monster Hunter Rise, NEO: The World Ends With You, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Shin Megami Tensei 5, and Metroid Dread, and 2022 has gotten off to a decent start.

Here's a look at all the titles we can expect to see on the Nintendo Switch in 2022 and beyond. Which big Nintendo Switch games have release dates?

Please note the focus is on North American release dates.

April 2022 Nintendo Switch Games

There is still time for more games to be announced for April 2022, but if the slate remains as it currently stands, the month should be a decent one for Nintendo Switch owners. Serving as a spiritual successor to Wii Sports​​​​​​, Nintendo Switch Sports will end April on a high, and most people would probably argue that this minigame collection is long overdue. Although the game's debut is still a ways off, Nintendo Switch Sports has so far left a positive impression.

Outside of Nintendo Switch Sports, April is not overly stacked with massive first-party titles; however, the month looks set to be consistent in terms of releases. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, MLB: The Show 22, and Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition are all set to launch within days of each other, and they cover a rather wide spectrum of genres.

The month will also target horror fans as Tormented Souls will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. Even Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is a pretty big deal, particularly for those who might have missed out on the hack and slash game during its initial release.

Nintendo Switch Games Announced For The Rest Of 2022

What does the rest of 2022 hold in store for Switch owners? Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is the sequel to 2017's Kingdom Battle, a turn-based tactical RPG based on a crossover that nobody asked for but many appreciated. That is not the only Mario spin-off on the way as Mario Strikers: Battle League is also scheduled for a 2022 release.

Splatoon 3 should also hit store shelves, a very welcome sight to all fans of the wild and crazy arena-style paint-based shooting franchise. Bayonetta 3 is also set to come out, and if it is anywhere near as good as the previous two entries, then Platinum Games' sequel will be one of the best action games of 2022. Some other highlights for the year are Dragon Ball: The Breakers, Metal Slug Tactics, and Monster Hunter Rise's Sunbreak expansion.

Major Switch Games In Development With No Release Year Or A Post-2022 Estimation

Things look even more promising in 2022 and beyond but it's important to note that not all of the following titles will drop on the Nintendo Switch. Still, with an upcoming console refresh and many developers looking to port onto the beloved systems, it's unclear just how many of these releases might actually make it to Switch fans.

Hollow Knight: Silksong is a shoo-in to appear on the Switch at some point. Nintendo fans have been waiting a long time for Metroid Prime 4 and Pikmin 4, two games that will hopefully join the Switch's library in due time. There's already a lot of big-name titles expected to make their way to the Switch in the future. Hopefully, these Switch games will get release dates soon.

Regardless of whatever else comes out in 2023, it is unlikely that any other game will manage to match the hype that surrounds The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

Rumored Nintendo Switch Games

The industry has yet to get any concrete information concerning the following games, and it's unclear if any of them will actually release on the Switch but it's still fun to think about what players may possibly see in the future. Star Wars fans would definitely love to fight their way through enemies as The Mandalorian, although whether the rumor materializes or involves the Switch remains to be seen.

Hopefully, some of these potential rumors will become a reality in the next few years.
