Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate - 28th August
Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate is the follow-up to Monster Hunter Generations, and marks the Monster Hunter series' debut on Nintendo Switch as an exclusive. Players can face off against the largest roster of unique monsters in any Monster Hunter game to date, and take on the role of a brave hunter challenging larger-than-life beasts that yield valuable resources used for crafting unique weapons and equipment.
Sure it might not be as fancy-looking as Monster Hunter: World, but it's as close as you're going to get on the Switch right now.
Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 03: Vehicle Kit - 14th Sept
This brand-new Nintendo Labo kit contains materials to build a variety of customisable cardboard creations including a Car, a Submarine, a Plane, a Pedal, two Keys and more. Insert one of the assembled Keys into any of the vehicles to enjoy a variety of fun games and activities. Changing between vehicles while adventuring is easy – just remove the key from one and slot it into another to transform from an airplane pilot to a submarine captain. You may or may not be the target audience for Nintendo Labo, and it's fine if you're not. But for those who enjoyed Toy-Con Kit 01 and 02, this looks like another fun cardboard adventure.
Dragon Ball FighterZ - 28th Sept
Dragon Ball FighterZ will enable fans of all skill levels to truly feel like their favourite Dragon Ball character. Featuring 3 vs. 3 battle mechanics, both new and seasoned players alike are sure to experience the epic scope of Dragon Ball as they build their team and take them into battle. In order to build the strongest team possible, players will need to train and master more than one fighter and style. Only then will their skills be strong enough to take down the competition. Will you be picking this bad boy up in September?
