Upcoming Nintendo Switch Titles in 2017

After receiving my Nintendo Switch a few weeks ago, I have been obsessed with playing as many titles on the platform as possible. This does mean that Switch titles will be being reviewed on the site in the following weeks and months. That being said, I feel like there is a lack of engaging titles on the platform, bar the 10 or so on the store. So I decided to do some investigating into which titles will be upon us before the year is over.

Although these aren’t all of the games that are coming out on the switch this year, these are all of the games that most interest me. I am particularly excited to play Rocket League on the go and the new IP Morphite looks very interesting.
