Nintendo Switch upcoming 2020 games list, plus all Switch Online NES and SNES games listed

Upcoming Switch games - from third-parties to Switch Online games - on the way.

After years of speculation, the Nintendo Switch - formerly known as the Nintendo NX during development - was released in 2016 and promptly took the world by storm.

The successor to the Wii U and 3DS is a portable handheld console with detachable controllers, with the option to connect to a TV or play standalone in tabletop mode.

In 2019, it was followed up by the Nintendo Switch Lite - a handheld-only system available at a cheaper price point.

On this page, we look at the many upcoming Nintendo Switch games we know about - from known release dates to vague 2020 estimates put out by developers and Nintendo itself. There's a lot to look forward to!
