Every Nintendo Switch Game Announced So Far

Updated: Mar 10, 2017 10:21 AM ET | Originally published: Jan 23, 2017

Nintendo's mobile/handheld Switch game console arrived on March 3, and we're keeping this post updated, so you can check back here as new titles are announced and scheduled.

For now: Yes, nine launch games seems scant by contemporary standards. Contrast that number with Sony's PlayStation 4, which in the U.S. offered 25 games at its November 15, 2013 debut. Or look at Microsoft's Xbox One, which had 22 when it rolled out November 22, 2013.

This hasn't always been the case. The Super Nintendo had five games at its U.S. launch in August 1991, while the Nintendo 64 had two—Pilotwings and Super Mario 64—when it appeared in September 1996. The Xbox 360 had 18 U.S. launch titles in November 2005 and the Wii had 21 in November 2006. But the PlayStation 3 had just 14 (just five more than the Switch) when it arrived around the same time as Nintendo's foray into motion control play.

Glance back at most of those games now and see if you're not struck by just how un-striking they were. Showstoppers are few and far between.

Nintendo's launch pitch for the Switch hinges on 1-2-Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is about luring core gamers who've been waiting for a fully open world Zelda for decades, while 1-2-Switch is a loopy party game the company hopes Zelda buffs will buy, then show off to the sort of nontraditional gamer that pounced on the Wii. The company views this as a quality versus quantity proposition.

The difficulty Switch could find itself in involves what looks to be a content lull between March and the holidays, though that could change as more games are confirmed or nailed down. On the other hand, having exclusives like Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Snipperclips, Arms and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 available in your launch year holiday lineup could prove a bigger deal than anyone's realized. We'll see.

Here's a rundown of all the Switch games to date, updated as new titles appear or timeframes change. We've also included pre-order links where applicable.
