There is a lot of anticipation leading up to the release date of the Nintendo Switch, which is now just a few days away. The console itself is often considered notable and innovative in today’s gaming world, but it’s the game roster that is likely to make or break the device.

If the game list is what will take the Switch to great heights, then Nintendo seems to be in good hands. There are already a handful of great games that will launch with the console, and not even the entire lineup has been announced. Furthermore, the company has promised that more will come in the months following the official release.

“The Legend Of Zelda: Breathe Of The Wild” is one of the more awaited games that will launch next month, as the title has been delayed for years now. “1-2-Switch,” “Just Dance 2017,” “Human Resource Machine,” “I Am Setsuna,” “Little Inferno,” “Skylanders: Imaginators,” “Super Bomberman R” and “World of Goo” will also be released on March 3 with the Nintendo Switch.

It is expected that more titles will launch with the console, but Nintendo has yet to make an official announcement as to what these games are. Nevertheless, others have been confirmed for the following months as well. One of the more awaited ones is “No More Heroes,” which first appeared on the Wii. The game is relatively vulgar and mature as far as Nintendo games go, and the same is expected for the Switch sequel.

Another one noted by Nintendo Enthusiast is “Dragon Quest XI,” which is likely to sport very traditional features normally found in Japanese role playing games. The new world will be introduced in 3D and is estimated to come with plenty of monsters, dungeons and side missions for players to accomplish.

“Splatoon 2” is another popular choice, as the original game was well received. The game sequel thus far looks to share a lot of the initial game’s features, but there are notable improvements that have been made as well. More specifically, the publication has noted an overall better gaming experience for players, in part because of the new voice chat features, as well as an additional DLC.

The Nintendo Switch is scheduled for launch on March 3 in the United States. Australian gamers can pre-order the same here.
