Just several months ago, Nintendo released its next-generation console, which was the Nintendo Switch. Since its launch, the Switch is still having supply problems as they can’t meet the demand. With at least one exclusive coming every month since launch, it’s not surprising that the Nintendo Switch is a really a big hit.
As we are nearing the end of 2017, Switch owners have several games to look forward to by the end of 2017.
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
For the first time ever, Ubisoft and Nintendo are working together to bring an exclusive strategy RPG for the Nintendo Switch; Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Featuring characters from Mario and the Rabbids from Ubisoft’s own franchise, players will be delving into a deep turn-based tactial gameplay system similar to XCOM. Since it’s official reveal back at E3 2017, the game garnered a lot of interest and it’s something to look forward before the month of August ends.
Pokken Tournament DX
Pokken Tournament DX is the first Pokemon game for the Nintendo Switch. While there are other Pokemon games coming in the near future, Pokken Tournament DX is something to hold you over before the GameFreak’s Pokemon game releases, which most likely be out sometime in 2018. If you are a fan of fighting games, this is the fighting game you are looking for. Those who have missed out the Wii U releases a few years ago, this is the definitive version you have to pick up as it includes all of the good things like DLCs – which is similar to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Did I mention that Bandai Namco developed this title for Nintendo?
Fire Emblem Warriors
In collaboration with KOEI Tecmo, Fire Emblem Warriors is an action hack-and-slash game similar to KOEI’s Dynasty Warriors. Similar to what KOEI did with Hyrule Warriors, Fire Emblem Warriors will have similar gameplay style except iconic characters from the famed Fire Emblem franchises will make an appearance such as Marth.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Following the successful launch of Bethesda’s Skyrim in major consoles several years ago, a Switch version is releasing by the end of the year. All of the expansive content that people have played in the console version will all be featured in the Switch version. One of the unique features to look forward to in the Switch version is the ability to use Amiibos and gain equipment from games like Breath of the Wild and more. For RPG buffs out there, Skyrim is definitely something you need for your Nintendo Switch.
Super Mario Odyssey
Super Mario Odyssey is probably the most anticipated game of 2017 and of course for the Nintendo Switch. Since its launch back at E3 2017, Super Mario Oddysey have received a lots of “Best Of” awards. From what we have played at E3 this year, Super Mario Odyssey is similar to games like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Sunshine with all sorts of new additions like Cappy, the spirit which possess Mario’s cap. Using Cappy, Mario will throw his his at at objects, enemies, and NPCs in order to call them. If you have a Nintendo Switch, this is definitely something you will look forward to this 2017.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
In addition to Super Mario Odyssey, probably the next game everyone is looking forward to is Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Fans of the first Xenoblade Chronicles for the Nintendo Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will feature new cast of characters led by the main character, Rex, as he explores a brand new world called Elysium. JRPG fans – this is something to look forward to as well just before the year ends. It’s coming out Holiday 2017.
