Nintendo Switch is a very powerful console, which is very popular with users. With it, you can not only watch Netflix, go online and find out more about Playamo, but also read the news, watch YouTube, and of course play games. If you’re looking for new video games on Nintendo Switch, here’s a list that will make you want to get your hands on the controller.
Released in 2017, the Nintendo Switch was the star system of the year 2020 as its sales exploded during the lockdown period. There are now more than 80 million units distributed worldwide. It also owes its success to the release of the video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons at the end of March 2020. Four years later, the Nintendo Switch has not aged a day and still has attractive games. Rumor has it that the Japanese company is working on a new “Switch Pro” model. While waiting for confirmation of this project, we have selected our favorite video games and those we are eagerly awaiting the release of later this year.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
If Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is one of the most eagerly awaited games of the year, it’s because of its promise that may leave you speechless. In addition to traveling through the mythical moments of the Star Wars saga, it will be possible to embody many characters and pilot ships such as the Millennium Falcon to travel between the 20 available planets. In terms of gameplay, the combat phases will be more complex than in previous versions and will invite players to overcome even more challenging difficulties, all the while remaining true to the humor of Lego games.
Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics
As the name suggests, Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics offers several mini-games to play alone or with others. Bowling, card games and even angling, you’re guaranteed a fun night out with friends. And those who want to practice and improve their poker or chess skills after binge-watching the Netflix The Queen series can also practice against other international players.
If the release of Cyberpunk 2077 ended in a worldwide fiasco because of its numerous bugs, owners of a Nintendo Switch can rejoice with CloudPunk. Passed under the radar when it was released in October 2020, it offers a Blade Runner-like universe, splendid with a megalopolis lit by multicolored neon lights and a catchy story. We play here Rania, a young woman working for a mysterious parcel delivery company…
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
From the very first minutes of the game, Ori and the Will of the Wisps takes us into an incredibly beautiful two-dimensional dream world. In this vast and exotic world, we slip into the skin of Ori, a small white creature who will face dark enemies in the heart of the forest of Nibel to find his friend Kun. With its graphics and music, it is our favorite.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum
If in your darkest dreams you can imagine yourself as Gollum, it will be possible this year. The developers of Daedalic Entertainment have announced the release of a game entirely dedicated to the famous character from the Lord of the Rings saga. In the trailer, you will evolve into a disturbing universe and you will have to deal with the double personality of Sméagol who became Gollum.
The Legend of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The first opus of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released in 2017, at the same time as the Nintendo Switch. It has become a must-have game. Four years later, it is still considered one of Nintendo’s best games thanks to a huge open world and breathtaking graphics. But fans are getting impatient and want a sequel to Link’s adventures. One thing the developers understood since they created a surprise at E3 2019 by offering a first trailer of the second installment. But you’ll still have to be patient since, according to rumors, it won’t be released before the end of 2021.
The fans of video games such as Battle Royale have been waiting for it for a long time. First released in 2019 on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4, Apex Legends finally arrives on Nintendo Switch. At the crossroads of Fortnite and Overwatch, the goal is simple: survival. To do so, you will embody one of the 16 proposed characters. Each one has a special power to help you in your adventure. For its 8th edition, the grenadier Fuse enters the arena, ready to blow everything up.
