25 Upcoming Switch Games of 2020

The Switch is a major success and it’s about time that we get to play more great games on this hybrid console. Visit our list of upcoming Switch games for the full catalog.

1. To The Moon

This tear-jerking indie-adventure game is making its way to Nintendo’s hybrid console. To The Moon is a beautiful title with a powerful story about love, loss, and dreams. It takes you into the lives of medical professionals trying to give people another chance to live… but only inside their patient’s heads before they draw their last breath.

It’s a bittersweet yet meditative experience about the futility of human life. It’s bound for release this 16th of January.

2. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles - Remastered Edition

One of Square’s iconic FF spin-offs is returning to the modern world. Return to the hopeful spirits of the Crystal Caravan in this remastered version of the 2003 GameCube title. Team up with other friends online to help you in your brave quest.

Crystal Chronicles enhances the experience of their epic journey to cleanse their world from a mysterious miasma. As an enhanced title, expect improved visuals, sound and other bonus content that make this adventure worthwhile. Coming this 23rd of January, 2020.

3. Doom Eternal

What is a better way to celebrate Switch’s success with DOOM’s second major installment? Eternal is the ideal gameplay experience when you want to de-stress yourself after a long day at work. Grab a gun and prepare to kill some Demons in a pandemonium-stricken Earth.

This sequel by id Software manages to up the ante of the soft-reboot, making it bigger and better in terms of combat, exploration and it's oh-so-smooth movement. With Switch’s hybrid capabilities, you can experience this fast-paced shooter Docked or Undocked. It’s set to release on other platforms on March 20th, but it’s scheduled for release on the Switch sometime later in 2020.

4. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Finally making its debut to the Switch, this latest title takes you into a whole new world free from the modern life woes. With more freedom at your disposal, New Horizons is a paradise of peace and serenity. Embrace that rural life as you collect resources and use your green thumb to cultivate plants and trees.

Make some new friends and get to meet some familiar faces in the Animal Crossing universe. There’s so much to do in this living and breathing world. Set your sights for these new horizons when the game comes out this March 20, 2020.

5. Trials Of Mana

Seiken Densetsu 3 is coming out to the Western Shores and the Switch for the first time.

This is a remake of the 1995 classic JRPG that first released on the Super Famicom. It’s been rebuilt from the ground up to give it a full 3D makeover. The story is unchanged, but experiencing it again or for the first time with enhanced sound, visuals and combat makes everything worthwhile. Coming this April 24, 2020.

6. Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers

It’s unfortunate that this is the only Persona title coming to the Switch. Either way, better this than nothing.

Scramble is different. It takes you to the lives of the Phantom Thieves once again but instead of raiding palaces and stealing people’s hearts, it’s a Musou title where you hack and slash enemy Shadows in Tokyo.

Made from the company that gave us the iconic Dynasty Warriors title, go all out as you pick from the wide cast of characters from Persona 5 and duke it out with hundreds of Shadows. It’s coming out sometime in Spring 2020.

7. Minecraft: Dungeons

Mojang’s voxel-based universe continues to evolve. This brand new Minecraft title says goodbye to its sandbox adventure as it introduces a whole new action-adventure experience that takes its inspiration from notable dungeon-crawling RPGs like Diablo and Divinity.

Played in an isometric perspective, personalize your character and ready yourself as you dive into a treacherous dungeon filled with monsters you’ve come to expect and more in a Minecraft game. It comes out sometime this second quarter of 2020.

8. SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom - Rehydrated

Remember that classic PlayStation 2 SpongeBob game? Well, it’s coming back and it’s ‘Rehydrated’. Step into the shoes of these iconic Bikini Bottom buddies as they gear up and defeat Plankton’s robotic army. This Remake by Purple Lamp Studios features improved visuals and sound which results to a completely refreshing experience.

For those who missed out on this classic, it’s the perfect time to dive right in. It’s scheduled for a 2020 release.

9. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4

Looks like Musou titles are making a comeback. Return to the high seas in Koei Tecmo’s Warriors-like One Piece experience. Similar to Pirate Warriors, control numerous One Piece characters including Luffy, Zorro, and more as they repel a massive horde of enemies in satisfying hack and slash combat.

Given the short reveal trailer, we know little about the game’s new content and mechanics. However, one thing we know is that it covers notable arcs from the One Piece anime instead of telling an original story. It comes out this sometime this 2020.

10. Fairy Tail

At this point, every Anime title with a game is gonna flock over to the Nintendo Switch. This JRPG adventure is imbued with the enchanting story and characters from Hiro Mashima’s opus.

Meet the iconic faces of the Fairy Tail mage guild. Take on quests and venture into Fiore’s magical lands. If you take a closer look in the gameplay, it kinda resembles Persona 5’s turn-based aesthetic.

The game is still in development but it’s coming out sometime this 2020!

11. My Hero One’s Justice 2

There’s just so many Anime titles on the Switch! Based on the hit anime series, play all your favorite heroes and villains in this sequel to the 3D arena-fighter.

Just like their Naruto games, this one is no different. See what happens to Deku in its story-mode. Play through the anime and experience memorable fights and relive the iconic scenes. With 40 playable characters at your disposal, create your own dream team as the series comes out sometime this 2020.

12. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

One of MonolithSoft’s acclaimed series that made its way to Super Smash Bros. In this Remake of 2012’s Wii classic, return to the adventures of Shulk in this gorgeous time-bending fantasy sci-fi title. It’s finally getting the improvement it deserves and its gearing for release to the Switch next year.

As an open-world JRPG, explore the Gaur Plains in HD and relive the best moments of this fascinating game in refined sound and visual design. No release date yet but possibly this 2020.

13. XIII

A first-person shooter with a huge element of comic book artistry, there's nothing like XIII. Amassing a cult following since its release on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2003, XIII is staging its comeback, refreshed and renewed for the modern consoles. It didn’t quite receive good reviews when it initially came out, but let’s hope this Remake fixes its issues.

As their trailer suggests, XIII is still gonna be loaded with style and we’re looking forward to seeing it once it arrives sometime this 2020.

14. Rogue Company

It’s great to see first-person shooters dropping to the Switch. This is Ubisoft’s multiplayer-shooter where you group up with friends and dominate the competition as members of an Elite Mercenary team.

As a multiplatform title, engage in guns-blazing online sessions with other players in various platforms with its crossplay and cross-progression feature. There’s so much potential here and we can’t wait to find out more about this game once it comes out sometime this 2020.

15. Cris Tales

There is something refreshing about this vibrant indie game from Dreams Uncorporated. Dubbed as a Love-Letter to the classic JRPG titles like Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, and even Valkyrie Profile, this time-warping adventure takes us into the life of Crisbell as she stops a powerful Time Empress from messing up the future.

It doesn’t feel like an indie game at all, especially with its solid hand-drawn art style and a fascinating world to explore. Master turn-based combat as you use the power of time to warp them to the past, present and even future. You can look out for out sometime in 2020.

16. Gods & Monsters

Imagine the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but set in a fictional Ancient Greece. This is what Gods & Monsters is all about. It goes without saying that this was created by the same team that made Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.

We didn't really get to know too much about it in their trailer. What we do know is that it’s an open-world game where you traverse huge plains and slay monsters. It’s coming out sometime this second half of 2020.

17. Little Nightmares II

Return to the Maw in this otherworldly adventure game from Tarsier Studios. This sequel enhances the horror experience with deep puzzle elements. In this second chapter, the iconic girl with the yellow raincoat makes a return but she no longer remains playable.

The game’s main character centers around Mono, which was a protagonist from the previous title. This sequel will further explore the harrowing atmosphere of The Maw and what lies beyond this demented dimension. It’s coming sometime this 2020.

18. Hollow Knight: Silksong

If you think you’ve had enough of Hollow Knight, another installment from Team Cherry comes out ready to push you to the limit. This sequel isn’t all about our little hero with a Nail. Take on Hornet’s shoes and explore a new Kingdom ruled by silk and song.

With Hornet’s abilities, engage in lethal acrobatic action as she uses her signature Needle to take down foes. It remains as punishing as ever for players who don’t play enough Dark Souls. This next chapter is coming sometime this 2020.

19. Metroid Prime 4

One of Nintendo Switch’s most anticipated exclusives. Announced during E3 2017, the game was nowhere to be found only until this year.

So far, it’s still under development but fans are already hyped up considering it’s gonna be a new Metroid title after a long, long while. Everything is pure speculation yet but let’s hope we see this game drop next year.

20. The Outer Worlds

Fallout: New Vegas in SPACE. This brand new title from Obsidian Entertainment is the perfect substitute for Bethesda’s underperforming Fallout 76. It’s already out on major consoles and the PC, but the Switch gets to experience this last, unfortunately.

Explore the Halcyon System taken over by Capitalism. Space is just another place to capitalize on money. Take on quests with branching decisions and embark on a grand adventure across other planets with a group of memorable characters. It’s coming out next year.

21. Bayonetta 3

PlatinumGames’ titular Witch is back but it's still shrouded in mystery, we might have to wait a little while longer before its imminent release on Nintendo's hybrid console.

We only got one reveal trailer so far and it looks like our main character is not looking good. We’re as excited as you are, but sadly, there is no release date yet.

22. Shin Megami Tensei V

Another most-anticipated Switch title that disappeared after its announcement years ago. It’s the original Persona without the day and night dating sim.

Sad news is that there’s no word about this iconic JRPG as of the moment. What we know so far is that it’s still set in modern day Tokyo and it features a refreshing look of the game’s known Demons. ATLUS is still a bit busy with Persona 5’s massive success, so it might take a while before we see a release date.

23. Pikmin 4 (Tentative Title


Pikmin was an odd idea that turned out to be a widespread success. And now fans are itching for another entry to their series. With the Switch’s prosperous set of years, we all think it's about time for another otherworldly farming saga, and the return of the adorable color-coded Pikmins.

Pikmin 4 has no trailer yet so that means no gameplay footage is present. Like most of Nintendo’s upcoming Triple-A titles, it still remains an enigma. No title or release date yet, but we’re eagerly hoping with crossed fingers.

24. Streets Of Rage 4

From Dotemu, the publisher behind hits like Wonder boy and Windjammers, comes a sequel to SEGA’s iconic arcade brawler. Known for its ridiculous fights and jamming ‘90s beats, 4 lets us relive the magic behind this cult classic.

Packed with non-stop action and groovy electronic music, follow the lives of Axel and Blaze as they start picking fights wherever they go. Building up on the original gameplay with new mechanics, it also adds more fun to the skull-bashing and chicken-chomping delight by encouraging group beat-ups with friends! No release date yet.

25. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

The original Breath of the Wild was a masterpiece, racking up numerous Game of the Year awards and being hailed as one of the greatest open-world games of all time. After releasing a cryptic trailer at E3 2019, Nintendo continues to push the boundaries of the Switch and the Zelda franchise into greater heights.

Still unknown on what the game is all about, this sequel is already in active development. No one knows about its gameplay or story, but it's reveal trailer poses some lingering questions about Ganon and the future of Hyrule. No release date yet.
