Nintendo made waves when they originally announced the Nintendo Switch, blending their hit portable market with the comfort of a home console. While the Switch hasn’t replaced Nintendo’s other portable systems, it’s definitely become the centerfold of their push in the industry, and 2019’s lineup isn’t anything to scoff at. To help you sort through the shelves of new titles coming out, we’ve put together a list of some of the best Nintendo Switch games coming in 2019.
Metroid Prime 4
Building off the first three games, which introduced an entirely new way to play in the Metroid series, not much is known about Metroid Prime 4 other than the fact that it is in development. Still, though, it’s definitely a game that players will want to keep their eyes on as Nintendo releases more and more information about it. It’s currently slated to release sometime in 2019 and will tie the story of the Metroid Prime series together as it pushes the storyline in entirely new directions.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Originally announced during the Fire Emblem Direct in January of 2018, the upcoming turn-based fantasy game from Intelligent Systems is still one that Nintendo is holding close to its chest. But, if you’re a fan of the Fire Emblem series as a whole, then having the chance to enjoy the sweet, challenging combat of the Fire Emblem series from the comfort of your couch, or while on the go is more than enticing enough to get your gaming jaws drooling over what Nintendo has in store for this beloved series.
Luigi’s Mansion 3
Mario’s scaredy-cat brother makes a triumphant return in Luigi’s Mansion 3 on the Nintendo Switch. Building off his ghost-busting adventures in the first two games, Luigi’s Mansion 3 has already captured the attention of many Switch fans looking to expand their library in 2019. Unfortunately, not much is known about the overall plot just yet, but if the previous two games are any indication, fans should have a frighteningly good time ahead of them.
Of course, 2019 is shaping up to be a huge year for the Nintendo Switch regardless with popular series like Pokemon and even Animal Crossing making the switch to Nintendo’s flagship console. Not much is known about most of the big games releasing for the Switch in 2019, but we’re sure that Nintendo will continue to release enticing details as they grow closer to releasing these different adventures into the hands of the player.
