Nintendo Switch gets these great games thrown at it in 2024

With a handful of remakes and some new games, it looks like this is going to be a big year for the Nintendo Switch. What titles will make 2024?

Fans of Nintendo have a wonderful year ahead of them with a lot to look forward to. At the top of the list might be the successor to the Nintendo Switch expected this year. Before that, a fat Bayonetta remaster has already been confirmed.

But until there’s a successor, you’ll have to make do with your current handheld for a while. Fortunately, with the games coming out this year, it’s anything but a punishment to just get your hands on the joy-cons again.

We can’t wait for these Nintendo Switch games

From wonderful remakes to great newcomers. These games for Nintendo Switch I am looking forward to immensely this year.

Mario vs. Donkey Kong | Feb. 16

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait very long for Mario vs. Donkey Kong. This remake of the very first Game Boy Advance game is coming out as early as February. The game is a delightful puzzle-platformer that I played on both the GBA and Nintendo DS.

And where little I still sometimes got stuck on certain puzzles, I’m more confident now that I don’t have to ask my mom for help. Although with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on the Switch, that doesn’t have to be a problem. The remake brings not only improved 3D graphics, but also a co-op mode.

Unicorn Overlord | March 8

Those who have already finished all the Fire Emblem games on the Switch can put March 8 in their calendars. That’s when Unicorn Overlord will be released: a JRPG that features the same tactical turn-based gameplay as Fire Emblem.

It’s wonderful to lose yourself turn after turn in an increasingly difficult battle. And that is exactly what Unicorn Overlord promises us. But the icing on the cake is not only the incredibly large world you can explore, but also the opportunities to build your army all by yourself. To make sure that doesn’t get boring any time soon, Vanillaware, the game’s creator, gives us more than 60 unique playable characters. Bring on the battle!

Loco Motive | TBA

Okay, okay: point-and-click adventures are not for everyone. They feel very old-fashioned compared to the flashy action we’re used to these days. And yes, I’m aware of how old I sound when I say this. But Loco Motive is the perfect game to introduce a younger generation to this wonderful genre.

The creators describe Loco Motive as a mix between point-and-click classic Monkey Island and the Murder on the Orient Express story. If that doesn’t sound exciting enough already, the game offers a humorous but simple drawing style. This keeps your attention completely on that blood-curdling clicking. When you put it that way, it does sound a bit dull, yet Loco Motive is high on my list!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door | TBA

Ahead, one more remake on this list then. It’s very easy to say you’re hyped for a game when you’ve played that game so many times before. Especially when it contains a touch of nostalgia. Still, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door will be a game on the Switch to look forward to.

As far as I’m concerned, this Mario RPG is going to work a hundred (or a thousand) times better on the Switch than it did on its original console. After all, that was the WII. There is something about the Switch that just makes playing RPGs and especially turn-based RPGs that much better. Is it the better controllers? The handheld mode or is it just between my ears? Either way: an incredibly fun RPG, in HD, with Mario, AND a good dose of humor in it. What more could you want?

Hollow Knight: Silksong

What a fantastic game Hollow Knight is. Charming, funny, challenging and most of all very beautiful. Even when my tears of frustration at the later levels left me unable to see the screen of my Switch, I knew I was looking at a wonderful game. So the sequel, Hollow Knight: Silksong, promises everything the original has, but better.

And the developers know full well that we are eager to see a sequel. Instead of announcing a date, they’ve given us some clues here and there in the form of riddles. Vague? Definitely. Does that just make my hands itch even more? Absolutely. Despite the vague riddles, there’s a good chance we’re going to see Silksong sometime this year. After all, it has been five years since Hollow Knight came out. And I still haven’t finished the game….
