While April was a bit of a slow month in the world of Nintendo Switch releases May is looking to be a step in the right direction. A few big titles being ported. A few interesting games coming to console for the first time and of course a few Switch exclusives. Check out this list of the most anticipated games coming to Nintendo Switch in May 2021.
Subnautica + Sub Zero
Subnautica, the open-world survival adventure game, and its follow-up Subnautica Sub Zero will be coming to the Switch in May. It’s an open-world survival adventure. Players are crashed landed on an alien planet and set off on the task to explore the expansive oceans. Players will collect materials and slay beats to craft different items, equipment, and base upgrades. Subnautica and Subzero will be available on May 14. The physical double pack including both games will cost $59.99 but the games can also be purchased individually in their digital format.
Maneater is an action RPG with an interesting approach that has not been done before from my knowledge. Fed up with the number of Sharks killed by humans players take control of Great white as they ravage the waters tormenting and slaughter people and their boats. Maneater will be released on May 25 and will be cost $39.99.
Take your Mii for the adventure of its life in MiiTopia. Coming to Switch on May 21 MiiTopia is an action-adventure RPG. Players must focus on building good relationships with their companions in order to work well together in battle. However, failing to build quality relationships will result in issues such as friendly attacks during the battle that can really stifle your chances of winning. This remaster will be released at a cost of $49.99.
Desolation is a 2D isometric adventure with beautiful artwork and an intriguing story. Players explore a post-apocalyptic world as they meet new allies, combat powerful enemies, and solve puzzles. Unravel the mysteries of the world of Beautiful Desolation when it arrives on Nintendo Switch on May 28. At the time of writing the price had not been made public but you can expect it to be in the range of $14.99-24.99.
Very Very Valet
Very Very Valley looks to be the Overcooked-inspired game in the Valet parking space. The couch co-op looks to be a great time with up to four players playing with or against each other. Players will drive crash and park cars as they traverse their way across crazy maps with ridiculous obstacles. Very Very Valet launches on Nintendo Switch on May 25 for the price of $24.99.
Arial_Knights Never Yield
Arial_Knights Never Yield is a beautifully designed runner with some interesting takes in an overly crowded space in gaming. Players run and dash through a futuristic Tokyo-inspired version of Detroit. Great artwork and a few unique gaming mechanics could prove to separate Never Yield from the rest of the pack. Look for it on Nintendo Switch on May 19 for just $14.99.
Monster Harvest appears to be a cross between Pokemon and Stardew Valley. Players collect, train, and battle monsters. Players can also plant, grow, mutate and harvest crops to take into battle as they manage and expand their homestead with the help of their monsters. Monster Harvest will launch on May 13 for the price of $34.99.
The Colonists is a city-building simulation game. Players control a settlement of robots as they work to expand their settlement and technologies to progress through the game. Expect a relaxing game pace with adorable graphics and surprising depth in the building options and paths that your settlement can take. The Colonists will come to Nintendo Switch on May 4. The price was not available at the time of writing but I would expect it to be around $24.99.
