It's time for our regular 'Deals' article, but we're a little early this month - you can blame Xenoblade Chronicles and its release date, though we're not actually complaining...

Can you believe it's nearly December already? It's a great time to be a Switch owner; we've recently seen the release of  Super Mario Odyssey and some amazing third party offerings such as DOOM, L.A. Noire and Skyrim, and there's still lots more to look forward to in the coming months - certainly enough to keep you occupied until Santa comes knocking later this month.

So, what's on the horizon for Nintendo Switch fans, then? We've complied a list of all the good stuff coming out at retail in December and beyond (some are region-specific dates), so you don't miss a single thing.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2

This JRPG sequel is shaping up very nicely indeed, and should provide many hours of entertainment for those who loved the Wii and Wii U outings. Can you wait to get your hands on Xenoblade Chronicles 2? You can also pick up this lovely Xenoblade themed Switch Pro Controller to go with it.
