Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games

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 was decent as well


Here’s a look at all the titles we can expect to see on the Nintendo Switch in 2023 and beyond. Which big Nintendo Switch games have release dates? Please note the focus is on North American release dates.

May 2023 Nintendo Switch Games

nintendo switch may 2023 games legend of zelda

In May 2023, one Nintendo Switch will monopolize the discourse above any other release: The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The Breath of the Wild sequel looks set to be a thrilling return to Hyrule that expands on the extremely strong foundations of its predecessor. Nintendo has remained fairly tight-lipped about the game’s contents, all the while still previewing enough elements to get the world excited about the project.

While no other May 2023 Switch game comes close to Tears of the Kingdom in terms of hype, there are a few other notable releases. Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 is a strategy JRPG by CyberConnect2 that focuses on children caught in a devastating war. Before its reveal trailer’s debut, Lego 2K Drive was a kart racer nobody knew they wanted; after the trailer, the game is comfortably among the most highly anticipated racing games of 2023.
