Nintendo’s recent Switch event showcased a bunch of games. Some we knew about previously, but many were new unveils. Most Switch retail games will cost the industry standard $60. Although many of the games shown during the press event will miss the console’s launch in March, Nintendo gave us plenty to look forward to. Here’s a list of every game shown at the event.
Confirmed launch titles (March 3)
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Available as a Switch launch title, Breath of the Wild promises to be Link’s grandest adventure yet. The new trailer showed off its dazzling landscape, from classic Hyrulian fields to snow-capped valleys. Voice acting, implemented for the first time in the franchise, appears to be a prominent fixture in the game. Set to be the most sprawling entry in the series, Breath of the Wild features more than 100 puzzle-filled places, designated as Shrines of Trials. The game will also come in one of three editions: a standard edition, Special Edition, and Master Edition. The Special Edition ($100) includes a Switch Sheikah Slate Carrying Case, a Sheikah Eye Collectible Coin, a Calamity Ganon Tapestry, a Weather-Worn Map, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sound Selection CD. The Master Edition ($130) includes everything in the Special Edition, as well as a Master Sword of Resurrection figure.
Utilizing the “HD rumble” feature found on the Joy-Con controllers, 1-2 Switch is a party game in which players stare at one another in the eye while playing a variety of different activities. Announced mini-games include a Western-style duel simulator and a dance off. 1-2 Switch brings a 1-2 punch on March 3.
Super Bomberman R
Konami is bringing the Bomberman franchise to Switch with Super Bomberman R. The game will make full use of the Switch’s unique hardware. It’s classic Bomberman with a modernized vibe. Featuring a 50-stage campaign — which you can play solo or with friends — and a battle mode, Super Bomberman R launches exclusively for Switch on March 3, in both physical and digital form.
Just Dance 2017
Everyone’s favorite dancing game, Just Dance 2017, is coming to the Switch. There’s no word yet on when you can bust-a-move, but it will be sure to make use of the Switch’s refined motion controls.
The latest entry in the popular toys-to-life franchise, Skylanders, is headed to the Nintendo Switch. Skylanders Imaginators, originally released in October, let players build and customize their own characters for the first time in the series. Imaginators launches on the Switch in March.
