Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker - 13th July

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which originally launched for Wii U, is coming to Nintendo Switch. This version includes exciting miniature courses based on various Kingdoms in the Super Mario Odyssey game. Also, anyone can play with a friend or family member by sharing a pair of Joy-Con controllers. While one player controls Captain Toad, the other can assist with things like turnip cover fire. If you missed this the first time around, don't make that mistake again.

Octopath Traveler - 13th July

Eight travelers. Eight adventures. Eight roles to play in a new world brought to life by Square Enix. Explore each traveler's story and use their abilities in and out of battle. Will you expand your horizons as the Merchant or track down a traitor as the Warrior? Where will you go? Who will join you? You alone can choose your path.

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. Hunters can face off against the largest roster of unique monsters in any Monster Hunter game to date. Players 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.
