15 Games Confirmed Coming to Switch
Even with the already vast size of the Nintendo Switch library, more games are constantly being announced. I’ve kept a close eye on the announcements and put together this list of 15 Switch Games 2021 and Beyond. I am looking forward to these games coming to the Switch later this year or in the future.
Hot Wheels Unleashed
The arcade racing game Hot Wheels Unleased is coming to Switch at the same time as all other platforms on September 27, 2021. The game will feature signature Hot Wheels tracks and vehicles. Play solo or multiplayer both locally or online with up to 11 opponents. Players will also be able to build and customize tracks to race on with their friends. Hot Wheels Unleashed will cost $49.99 and is available for pre-order now.
Stonefly is an action-adventure game where players control a mech-fly and unleash powerful weapons. Fight as Annika Stonefly to recover her lost family heirloom. The game looks to be a fun action-packed and fast-paced top-down shooter. Stonefly will be available on June 1, 2021. A cost was not available at the time of writing.
Little Devil Inside
Developed and published by Neostream Interactive; Little Devil Inside is an action-adventure game where players can go it alone or in co-op. Follow the lives of explorers searching for monsters and supernatural events. This title will be available in July of 2021. An exact release date and price were not available at the time of writing.
In Hazel Sky players take control of Shane as he embarks on a journey to become an Engineer. Shane will face the trials of the island he has been sent to or face banishment from his home of Gideon; a flying city. No release date or price has been confirmed but we are told Hazel Sky will be available later this year.
171 is an open-world action adventure reminiscent of the Grand Theft Auto series. The art style is gorgeous and the gameplay seems promising. While not likely to live up to the standards set forth by Rockstar in the legendary GTA series; 171 looks to be able to fill that void in the Nintendo Switch library. No release date or pricing has been set for this title yet but should expect it by end of the year or early 2022.
Mineko’s Night Market
Mineko’s Night Market is a narrative-driven, social-sim, adventure game. Players will build relationships with the townsfolk. Explore mines for items and materials, prepare and eat food, and interact with a plethora of cats! The game explores Japanese culture and tradition as well as the complexities of friendship. Mineko’s Night Market will be available later this year. A price has not yet been established.
In Dysmantle players take control of a Survivor in a post-apocalyptic survival, crafting, action RPG. Explore the mutant-infested world collecting materials and crafting tools and other items. Food serves as a way of leveling up players. The map is expansive and features interesting and diverse landscapes and environments. Currently, in pre-release on Steam, Dysmantle has been highly regarded so far and is a title I very much look forward to diving into.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
While the first game in the series will not be coming to Switch its publisher, Capcom, has ensured us that this new entry will bring the series into a new era. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is a turn-based action-adventure RPG. Players take control of the Grandson of Red one of the finest riders in the land. Set out on a journey with the help of Kayna to learn your capabilities and responsibilities as a rider. The game has wonderful visuals and promises to have an intriguing and interesting story. Monster Hunter Story 2: wings of Ruin will be coming to Switch on July 9 2021 and will cost $59.99.
The Magnificent Trufflepigs
The Magnificent Trufflepigs is a narrative-driven game about digging up the past. It appears to be similar in style and the way the narrative is progressed as Fire Watch. If you enjoy slow-paced, narrative-based games this one will be right down your alley. It will be available in “early summer” 2021. A price was not available at the time of writing.
To The Rescue

Zombies Ate My Neighbors/Ghoul Patrol
Available on June 29, 2021 Zombie Ate My Neighbors is the 1993 smash hit by LucasArts. This horror, co-op is sure to bring that feeling of nostalgia with visuals and gameplay representing the best the SNES had to offer.
