Nintendo Switch games due for release in 2021

In 2021, owners of the Nintendo Switch can look forward to numerous new games for the console. Including some real highlights!

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular consoles in the competitive gaming market. The Japanese manufacturer relies primarily on flexibility and a hybrid model that allows gaming on the big screen as well as in practical handheld mode. Games like “Animal Crossing: New Horizons” or “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” were specially designed for the Switch. And very successfully at that. In addition, titles from various other developers have now appeared for the console. But which games for the Nintendo Switch are actually planned or already released in 2021?

Some highlights and first news about “Zelda: BotW 2”

2020 was a good year overall for Switch. The demand for the console rose sharply. For weeks the Nintendo Switch was only available on the black market. On the other hand, Corona stopped the development of many titles, especially in the high-end area. Nintendo Switch users can look forward to the games planned for 2021 all the more!

Among other things, new editions or new titles of the farming favorites “Harvest Moon” and “Rune Factory” are on the list. With “Super Mario 3D World”, another in-house highlight has already been launched. And with “Miitopia” one of the most popular Nintendo role-playing games of the past few years will land on the Switch in 2021.

Many Switch users should be particularly excited about the sequel to “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”. Little is known about the new flagship game so far, but what is certain is that it will not be on the market before the end of 2021. Some sources report rumors that a Christmas sales release is planned; Experts think this is unlikely. As a replacement for this, “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD” will be released on July 16, 2021 for the Nintendo Switch.

Monster Hunter Rise

In an open world, players can go about their daily business as monster hunters in “Monster Hunter Rise”. Whether flying, running or climbing you will encounter all kinds of monsters, including some new ones especially for the Switch game.

Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires

The action strategy game will not come up with an open world map like its predecessors, but the siege system will be more complex. The well-known action-packed battles are expanded by a strategic level and the conquest of ancient China is exciting and varied.

Rune Factory 5

The 5th part of the “Rune Factory” series also throws us into the well-known setting. The main character wakes up with no memory near a small town. However, the residents take him in a friendly manner and as a ranger from now on you ensure law and order, expand your farm, establish relationships and fight monsters in dungeons.

SaGa Frontier Remastered

In April 2021, the remastered edition of the PlayStation classic “SaGa Frontier” from 1998 will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Players can choose from the eight familiar characters and play their stories, whereby the course of the plot can be significantly influenced.
