The year may be dashing past at an alarming rate, but it's a great time to be a Switch owner; February saw the release of Bayonetta 2 (with the original Bayonetta included of course) and Payday 2. 2018 may have gotten off to a slow start compared to last year's amazing release schedule, but now we're on a roll.

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 March and April, so feast your eyes and prepare your wallets.

Kirby Star Allies - 16th March

The pink ball with an unending appetite is preparing to make his Nintendo Switch debut and he's bringing some pals along for the ride. It's still your usual Kirby platforming fare, only now you can play with up to three other players locally (or go solo with AI at your side). Abilities can still be eaten and acquired, but now you can combine them with your allies to create unusual combos for puzzle solving and platforming alike.

Detective Pikachu - 23 March

Wait a minute! Isn't this supposed to be a round-up of Nintendo Switch games and accessories we hear you cry? OK you got us, busted! We just couldn't resist listing this as the oversized Detective Pikachu amiibo is just so darn cute. The 3DS game looks good, too!

Attack On Titan 2 - 31st March

Nintendo Switch is finally getting an Attack On Titan game, with the hotly-anticipated AOT2 following the story arc of the anime's second season. If you're new to the franchise, the game takes the central premise - humans seeking shelter in high-walled cities while naked giants roam the wilderness trying to eat them - and spins it into an acrobatic take on the giant monster hunting of, err, Monster Hunter. The sequel enable you to create your own custom character but you'll be able to play as fan faves Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert and more.

Nintendo Labo - 20th April

Since its surprising reveal, Nintendo Labo has become one of the most talked about games on Nintendo Switch. Whether you're mildly intrigued or all in, this cardboard-based gameplay revolution is going to be one of the most important releases on the Nintendo Switch calendar. With two Toy-Con packs already announced, and plenty more designs shown off already, the new origami-esque concept makes for a tempting purchase when it arrives in April.
