I don't ever post in the forums, just the articles, but I wanted to take the time to thank you for this.

It's not easy finding a true, honest, and easy listing of releases for the Switch and definitely not on the physical side as they all get lumped in. Even this site used to do a fantastic job of that a revision ago and that's gone which is what I had used.

I've bookmarked this gem. I'm seeing a few games right now on that list of this day I did not know about at all like Soldam which supposedly popped up yesterday?

The list is missing Dragon Quest Builders 2 which was announced and as far as I know is a physical title.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it has been announced for the west yet. I hope so.

Well I know it is a tad bit early. But since September is a week-ish away, figured we'd have the physical releases down pat for that month. Sooooo, here's September Onibus of NA retail releases. Quite a few releasing in September!

Also, added bonus, tracked down a good-ish version of Gunvolt's boxart as well.

@Paraka NBA 2k18 was delayed by the way, no new date has been announced yet.

@link3710 - I have been hearing mixed announcements about WHEN it is officially released and took the earliest rumor (Sept 29th) as a decider. Regardless, it will probably be in Oct so just pretend it's early to the party.

Up to date with all the current physical games and release dates. I even added the shovelware from UIG Entertainment to the list. I have one question: how do we feel about the NBA 2k18 Switch boxart and the large warning at the top? Mind you this is outdated because Kyrie moved to the Celtics, but this is the official boxart they released before the move.

That box art looks awful with that box... It had no need to be that big or visually bland.

In other news my wallet is now dreading November 14th.

@link3710 Yeah man November 14th is stacked. So is October 23/24th. I really don't understand why they couldn't just put a sticker on the box? They really think Switch owners are kids/parents huh?

A sticker or putting that warning in the same size at the backside of the box would have been more than enough.

I created an account on this website for the sole reason of thanking you for creating this thread!!! I had a two week battle with some narrow-minded jerks over at Wikipedia who outright REFUSED the inclusion of any method for indicating which games have a physical release, and which ones are "download only".

This thread is my only means for tracking Switch cartridges, and I really appreciate your efforts in keeping this list accurate and up to date...

THANK YOU!!!!

...ok - besides giving mad props for creating (and maintaining) this awesome thread, I also have a question.

Whatever happened to the physical release of Minecraft (NOT the "story mode") version, but the true Minecraft - Switch Version? It was on this list for awhile and I have resisted purchasing from eShop because I would much rather have the cartridge. Anybody know what the story is with this one? Was the physical release officially canceled???

@TalonMan I read that thread in the chat post-happening, it was a good show on your part. As for Minecraft, here's what (I think) is going on. The currently released version of the game, Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, will no longer be sold online in a few months. Instead, It'll be replaced by the similar game by the name of just Minecraft. That game will be cross-platform compatible. As it is technically a separate game (and a huge rewrite codewise supposedly), and not a patch on top of the existing game, they aren't going to release a physical version until after that is released. Whether they still will or not is unknown, but if they do, it won't be under the name Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition, but just Minecraft.

tldr; Yes cause it'll be obsolete soon anyways, but a different version of Minecraft is still possibly in the works for a physical release.

EDIT: In other news: No gaming websites have covered this that I've seen but according to Amazon Snipperclips is getting a physical release! I'm glad I held off. https://www.amazon.com/Snipperclips-Plus-Cut-Together-Nintend...

Any information about Earthlock: Festival of Magic Switch version in Physical retail ?
I heard the Japanese version will be released on Winter 2017...

@link3710 Thanks for the thanks. As for Minecraft, the recently announced New 3DS version is getting a physical release next year, and that one isn't even playable on OG 3DS/2DS. So I'm confident it will get a Switch release as well, it's just going to take a while.

@strysio It has a physical version in Japan (Japanese box art, Japanese/English text in game), and a physical "Asia" version, (English box art, English text in game). The Asia version is a lot pricier than the Japan version.
