Nintendo spun through plenty of games by first- and third-party publishers during its Nintendo Direct on the 12th April, but the message was clear: There are a lot of games coming to the Switch in the next few months.
The rapid-fire delivery included release dates for big titles that have already been demoed widely, like Arms, Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Chapter and Splatoon 2, but also titles Nintendo hasn’t said much about, like multiplayer title Project Mekuru.
Here’s the list of every title we got release dates for from that Nintendo Direct, including some with the murky “summer” release window.
Puyo Puyo Tetris: April 25 (with a demo out today)
Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition: May 11
Disgaea 5 Complete: May 23 (demo coming soon)
Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers: May 26
Arms: June 16
Splatoon 2: July 21
Fate/Estella: July 25
Sonic Mania: Summer
Sine Mora X: Summer
Project Mekuru (working title): Summer
Namco Museum: Summer
One of the biggest announcements was that Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will be coming to the latest Nintendo Console, bringing the world’s most popular sandbox to yet another gaming platform.
Minecraft on Switch supports the Pro controller and up to eight players online, or four locally in split-screen mode. Plus, it comes with the Super Mario Mash-Up Pack, which throws classic Mario characters and locations directly into the game.
