Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games 2023

There are plenty of upcoming Switch games to keep you busy for the rest of the year, and well into 2024. While first-party releases do seem to have died down somewhat, there are still a ton of indies, as well as some surprising third-party ports on their way to Nintendo’s hybrid console.

Keeping track of everything coming to the Switch in 2023 and 2024 can get a little bit tricky, what with all the new games, re-releases and remasters, as well as digital-only titles to contend with. That’s why we’ve put together this guide on all of the new Switch games on the horizon. As new release dates are revealed, they’ll be added here. Delays will also be noted.

For now, here’s a list of upcoming Nintendo Switch games, set to arrive by the end of 2023, and into 2024. Note that while we’ve scoured the internet for as many release dates as possible, we can’t include everything. The release dates for major titles and indies have been covered, as well as certain re-releases and online games.
