Don’t worry: there will be no shortage of Switch games this year.

At the end of 2017, we didn’t really know what games we’d be seeing on the Nintendo Switch in 2018. But the outlook has brightened considerably since then!

Nintendo rolled out some announcements in a Nintendo Direct stream in January, followed by the reveal of the Nintendo Labo kits – and now we’ve had another even larger Nintendo Direct stream today with loads more games inbound. Many are ports from other platforms, both recent and past, but they’ll probably find happy homes on the super-hot Switch this year.

Didn’t catch the stream? Here are the biggest revelations for Switch (and even 3DS) owners.


It’s happening! Easily the most-demanded title for Switch, Nintendo finally confirmed that they’re making a new Super Smash Bros. game for the console. And it’s coming out in 2018, no less.

We didn’t actually see any gameplay footage or hear about any big features, but the tease at the end of the Direct was pretty incredible – and we know that it’ll loop in the Inklings from the Splatoon series, alongside mainstays like Mario and Link. And we’ll probably gets loads more fun cameos, since the roster is always bursting at the seams.


Speaking of Splatoon – Switch sequel Splatoon 2 has been a strong hit for Nintendo, and they’re keeping up the support well into 2018. A free v3.0 update is coming in April that will roll out three new multiplayer maps, Rank X for die-hard players, and 100+ new bits of gear for customizing your favourite squid kids.
