Mario Strikers: Battle League - 10th June

Mario Strikers is back, baby! Yes, bringing the series to Switch for the first time, Mario Strikers: Battle League comes with its usual chaotic, over-the-top action, but also packs in some exciting new multiplayer options. Local multiplayer will support up to eight players, and an online 'Clubs' mode will have up to 20 players active at one time. We're very, very intrigued. More pre-order options are available here.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes - 24th June

Just in case one Warriors game wasn't enough, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes brings even more Musou action to Switch on 24th June. It will, as you might expect, add to the story found within Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and will even have three different paths that pair you up with one of the three major houses from the original game. More pre-order options are available here.

If you're feeling hungry for more Claude and the gang, this one's for you.

Capcom Fighting Collection - 24th June

If you're a fan of Capcom's classic collection of fighting greats, the aptly named Capcom Fighting Collection will no doubt be for you.

The bundle includes ten of the company's most popular arcade games, with fully featured online modes and additional content sprinkled in for good measure. The ten games in question? You'll get to play, Darkstalkers, Night Warriors, Vampire Savior, Vampire Hunter 2, Vampire Savior 2, Hyper Street Fighter II, Super Gem Fighter Minimix, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Cyberbots and Red Earth. More pre-order options are available here.

Live A Live - 22nd July

On 22nd July, western players will finally be able to experience LIVE A LIVE, a JRPG originally only released for the Super Famicom in Japan.

Presented in the same HD-2D style made famous by Octopath Traveler and Triangle Strategy, this modern remake of the game will have you meeting seven heroes, each with their own unique abilities and lives to live across different time periods. It includes remastered music from original composer Yoko Shimomura and is said to "retain everything that players loved about the original" game – consider us sold! More pre-order options are available here.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 - 29th July

Arguably the biggest, most highly anticipated game on the list, however, is Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

Launching towards the end of July, the game is a brand new mainline RPG for the series that brings together the futures of the two original games. In this third instalment, players will be taken to the world of Aionios, home to two hostile nations, and we couldn't be more excited to jump in. More pre-order options are available here.
