Nothing decent til July as far as I can see
4AchievingGamerSat 1st May 2021
I’ll be checking out that Nocturne remaster for sure. So glad I made the, heh, switch to the Switch this year.

Oh I forgot about worlds end club, I’m so going for that this year.
7GameManAdvanceSat 1st May 2021
Better get your copy of SMTIII quick before it does what Atlus games do. That is, it will become excessively expensive a few years from now. Search eBay for Atlus 3DS games if you don’t believe me. I’m still kicking myself for trading in my copy of SMT: Devil Summoner Soul Hackers at friggin Gamestop.
8ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
Nice, look at all that shovelware. Makes me nostalgic about the Wii’s final years.
915roundTKOSat 1st May 2021
Shovelware and ports forever now. Sad.
10Ryu_NiiyamaSat 1st May 2021
SMT, world ends with you, GAA, monster hunter and Zelda will be my main focus since I am buying less games until Black Friday but I have another 20 or so on my list. Gotta budget wisely here.
11Zeldafan79Sat 1st May 2021
Wow I have little to no interest in most of these games and the ones I do are rereleases of old games. The switch seems to be in a rut lately. Is it just me?
12FoaadSat 1st May 2021
I played the Miitopia demo and I like it!
13DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@Lord invest in some glasses, son.
Lot of good stuff coming out. Have pre-orders on Alex Kidd, Monster World IV, SMT III, Zelda, Cotton, Legend of Mana and SaGa Frontier. I still need to pre-order the new Ace Attorney collection and the Cotton Saturn collection.
14DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB not sure what point you’re making, since a lot of those games are neither shovelware, nor endemic of the Switch. Every popular console has more shovelware than you could ever be aware of.
The last year has been pretty dead, with lots of delays and disappointing releases, with lots of remakes and rereleases across the board. Pretending the Switch has the same problem the Wii did is asinine, unless you consider any non-AAA game to be shovelware.
15DonutsavantSat 1st May 2021
I’m having trouble caring about anything releasing these next two months. This is fine by me, as July has 3 huge games I am very much excited for (World Ends With You, Skyward Sword, Ys 9)
That said, if I do finish my backlog (which is only three games deep!) I think I will try and give Ni No Kuni a chance!
16ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
”Pretending the Switch has the same problem the Wii did is asinine” You’re right, the Wii at least had fantastic run (hell, I might admit that it was the best modern Nintendo console they released). The Switch can’t even get past the third hurdle and literally needs crutches in the form of rereleases to stay relevant…
17DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB lmao I’m neither apologetic, a white knight or a fanboy. What a lousy reply lol. Nintendo’s lack of strong first party support this year is a detriment to the console. That still doesn’t change anything I said. Calling someone a fanboy because you disagree them with is mega-douchey.
Try again, but more like we have a subjective disagreement about video games, and less like I molested you during childhood. **** on the opinion, not the person.
18MeloManSat 1st May 2021
What a list, there are some surefire “gets” in there for me. Be still my wallet…
19Anti-MatterSat 1st May 2021
There is always games targeted for casual gamers. Of course they are not AAA games but who cares. Not everyone has interest with AAA games.
The casual games are perfect for gamer like me and other peoples for short burst session. Some peoples like to play kind of these games. Be granted if Nintendo Switch has a lot of diversity in games genre. More choices merrier even if you don’t like casual games. I think the casual games from the list above were really great. I will consider some of them.
20DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@Anti-Matter he’s not wrong about a serious lack of first party support, it’s just that he can’t fathom any scenario where you disagree with him without you being a narrow minded fanboy. I can’t tell if it’s just lazy trolling or what.
21AnguspussSat 1st May 2021
the subnautica double pack looks cool but how will it run is the question
22ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
Okay, I admit that it was assholish of me to call you out like that and I apologize. It’s just I’m tired of seeing people licking Nintendo’s boots when they don’t deserve it.
And please don’t use lines like “I molested you during childhood”
23KiyataSat 1st May 2021
I thought Style Savvy: Fashion Famous was coming out on switch in June? Anyone have any info on that?
24DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB then don’t respond like that’s what I did to you, chief. It’s called a disproportionate response. That’s the most disproportionate response I can think of. No need to apologize for anything, just don’t tell people they’re licking boots simply because it’s the only way you can wrap your head around a disagreement you have.
Otherwise have at it, crap on my opinion all you want. That’s fair game. Have a good one, I have no beef with you.
25Anti-MatterSat 1st May 2021
Style Savvy Fashion Famous ?
(Searching from Google)
New Style Savvy on Nintendo Switch !!!
Thank you so much for the information.
26ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
Sorry, no can do. I will call people out if they’re blindly kissing Nintendo’s fecal matter. I mean do you really want people to keep telling Nintendo what they are doing (rereleases, unjustifiable lawsuits/cease & desists, over prices, and general disappointment) is okay or even great? It seems as though ever since the Wii era the fanbase has become as submissive as the Apple fanbase, just full of Yes Men for Nintendo.
27DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB oh, okay. I thought maybe you’d reply more like a normal person, but my mistake. Good luck on your, uh, quest.
28ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
Okay then, will do. I’ll leave alone with your Shigeru cardboard cutout and a copy Wii Music, while you think of yourself molesting me as a child~
29DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB see, you’re doing that thing again where you project nonsense onto someone for having a simple disagreement. I can’t tell if it’s just lazy trolling or literal autism. Good luck in either case.
30ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
I don’t have to answer to hypocrites~
31DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB the latter it is.
32DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB I’m not trying to be original, poignant or edgy. You respond like someone who has zero notion as to how to properly interact with people beyond them being extensions of whatever nonsense you want to project onto them, like you still going with the fanboy argument. So it’s either trolling, or being on the spectrum. Pick the one most applicable to you, and again, good luck.
If you had responded like a normal person we’d be discussing video games lol. Let that sink in.
33Anti-MatterSat 1st May 2021
Btw, i hope Clive N Wrench will get exact release date after got delayed for several times.
34k8sMumSat 1st May 2021
This place ain’t fun no more.
35TottSat 1st May 2021
On a lighter note…
I’m looking forward to some of these! Been waiting on Mario golf for a long time, and I never played Skyward Sword so I’ll be getting that! Then hopefully a Zelda35 announcement or two comes in there as well!
36TheBigN65Sat 1st May 2021
SMT 3 and The Great Ace Attorney for me. Can’t wait for SMT V.
37DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB oh okay. I’d still rather be that guy than the dude who genuinely thinks he’s taking Nintendo to task one ravenous fanboy at a time.
At least now you’re responding normally, to what I actually wrote instead of what you convinced yourself I was.
38ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
Your hypocrisy is shining so bright, dude. It’s literally giving everyone in a 50 mile radius radiation poisoning~
39DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@ImBackBB oh, there’s no hypocrisy. I tried responding to your point without actually attacking you, that didn’t work. I told you you didn’t have to apologize, but that maybe jumping down someone’s throat and calling someone a white knight fanboy was silly, that didn’t work. I told you I wasn’t a Nintendo fanboy, that didn’t work.
So no, that’s not ‘hypocrisy’ on my part, it’s a natural escalation. You made it pretty clear that there’s no room for disagreement, champ. You are a legit weirdo.
40Anti-MatterSat 1st May 2021
I know, right ?
41DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@k8sMum I’m sorry for being part of that. What’s your favourite ice cream?
42ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
Only because you say you’re not a fanboy doesn’t make it any less so. That’s for others to decide, not yourself. Hypocrisy is still hypocrisy, you dingus.
And you’re a literal fanboy hypocrite~
43Anti-MatterSat 1st May 2021
Pocoyo Party bundles will be released on PS4 and Nintendo Switch with Pocoyo figurine inside.
Not bad for a casual game for kids.
44DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@Anti-Matter I’ve been seeing that game a lot lately. What is it exactly?
45ImBackBBSat 1st May 2021
I’m having a blast~
46Anti-MatterSat 1st May 2021
If i remembered, Pocoyo was an educational tv program for kids, somewhat like Disney Junior or Nickelodeon Junior.
Their games debut was from Wii and NDS era. There was a puzzle game, racing game from Pocoyo on Wii and NDS. Now, there is a Pocoyo game on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in HD quality.
47DeepdoopSat 1st May 2021
This may be controversial, but the switch’s first party lineup in the first half of 2020 was far better than this year.
48DarlinfanSat 1st May 2021
@Deepdoop I think that’d be pretty hard to argue at this point. First party support has been a real let down.
49sanderevSat 1st May 2021
I wasn’t going to get Miitopia, but after playing the demo that’s on the Switch, I am almost completely sold on it. It’s a really fun concept and game.
And ofcourse Mario golf.
50GrimSat 1st May 2021
I’m excited for Smt 3, Mario golf, skyward sword, and stories 2. There’s been a game a month coming out that I’ve wanted so can’t complain, except July with both SS and stories 2. If I start buying a bunch of 80 dollar games in a month I start to feel ridiculous. Collector in me does want the blasphemous and hotline Miami physicals tho.
51KiyataSat 1st May 2021
@Anti-Matter ha, you’re so welcome! I just hope it really comes out in June, I’m so excited to get that game!
52aresiusSat 1st May 2021
waiting for sub Nautica, from the videos i have seen and the dev interview they are making a good job with the porting
53DuboissSat 1st May 2021
I really hope people won’t buy miitopia at launch cause the message to Nintendo it will only show it’s ok to do barebones ports and sell them at a high price. Wait that’s exactly the Wii U ports we got for years now …
54Goat_FromBOTWSat 1st May 2021
@Anti-Matter That’s the Fanon wiki, for ideas of things people want. It’s not actually coming out. It could someday, but it’s not a real game for now.
55rockodoodleSat 1st May 2021
Super excited about Mario Golf…..
56rockodoodleSat 1st May 2021
@Duboiss it is hard for me to get a gauge on this. The overlap of 3ds owners and Switch owners is far greater than WiiU. But then Nintendo has been so dry that it might end up doing pretty well for those who missed it.
But I agree with in in the sense that I don’t want 3ds ports on the Switch, especially since they all but view it as new content. I wasn’t interested in either the Ps5 or the series x, but if Nintendo keeps this up, I will be.
57BeefSantaSat 1st May 2021
Uh, lacking Famicom Detective Club from this list much?
58VoidofLightSat 1st May 2021
Seems like a load of shovelware, with a few interesting games releasing along the line.
59ChowdaireSat 1st May 2021
@Deepdoop No doubt. This is weird to say but for once in the switch’s lifespan nintendo seems to be taking a nap while third parties are finally stepping up to bat. Third party we’ve already gotten bravely default, ghost n goblins, and monster hunter. But pretty soon we’re getting smt 3 and 5, disgaea 6, monhun stories 2, world ends with you, ys, ace attorney, no more heroes 3, rune factory and I’m sure a few others I forgot. Thats a lot of third party with a healthy dose of exclusives, console exclusives, and multiplat.
60somnambulanceSat 1st May 2021
Possibly Mario Golf for me. Gotta try Miitopia still before I decide on that, but gosh how I wish Sports Story was in this article. I remember “releasing summer 2020…” The Switch line-up in 2021 is arguably the least exciting year in the console’s lifespan, in my opinion.
Ports, stale indies (my opinion, no offense to people excited about any of them), shovelware, etc. Hoping we get something a little bit more exciting announced at E3. Wish we saw more of Nintendo’s original IPs. I’m not asking for BotW2 or Metroid Prime 4, per we, but where’s the Yoshi’s Crafted World tier titles? Donkey Kong, Kirby, etc. Feels like the best games last year on the console were ports of old games. I mean, I love replaying Mario Galaxy, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Pikmin 3, but I sort of expect new entries for Nintendo IPs.
61rockodoodleSat 1st May 2021
@somnambulance Animal Crossing aside,maybe Pokémon, it has been depressing. Golf will be great, I am sure. They really need to announce something at E3 to salvage this year. This is worse than 2016.
62RR529Sat 1st May 2021
Just got New Pokemon Snap, and am looking forward to Famicom Detective Club, Asha in Monster World, Mario Golf, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, Skyward Sword HD, & Mon Hun Stories 2 in the coming weeks & months.
I’ll admit that Nintendo needs to announce some big first party bombs for the later half of the year, but if you can’t find anything to play in the coming months I can’t help but think that’s partially your own fault (not directed at anyone in particular, just general sentiment I’m seeing).
63LEGEND_MARIOIDSat 1st May 2021
Miitopia, Mario Golf SR, SMT III
Reviews required: Ninja Gaiden MC, the Subnatica games, World End Club
(I have a number of the July releases mentioned that I want including Skyward Sword)
64BrooshSun 2nd May 2021
I was not expecting to be charmed by Miitopia but the demo and especially the Mii editor have convinced me otherwise.
65somnambulanceSun 2nd May 2021
@rockodoodle I mean, I’d be into Famicom Detective Club if it was $15 too, but c’mon Animal Crossing was the last big release and that was over a year ago
66JimmySpadesSun 2nd May 2021
@Zeldafan79 You are correct–what’s in a rut is just you.
67JimmySpadesSun 2nd May 2021
@somnambulance @rockodoodle Monster Hunter says hello.
68somnambulanceSun 2nd May 2021
@JimmySpades @rockodoodle Monster Hunter’s not a Nintendo IP though (and granted I’m not a fan of Monster Hunter, so that probably affects my opinion on the year, seeing as how it’s the lone new Switch blockbuster in 2021, unless we count Bowser’s Fury, which is a great add on to a great game, but not enough to be its own game).
Next Nintendo IP release for all we know is Splatoon 3. There’s plenty of franchises for Nintendo to tap. Give me Warioware, Star Fox, Chibi Robo, heck Nintendogs, a new entry somewhere. Doesn’t matter if it’s an entry I want personally, just a new entry to show they’re not just laying back on ports (and if they’re laying back on ports, just do a Mother compilation already).
69andyg1412Sun 2nd May 2021
Dear Nintendolife, July is a separate month after May and June so either change the title of the article or remove the only decent game (only my opinion) due for release in the next three months, many thanks!
70San_DSun 2nd May 2021
I tried the Miitopia demo, had no expectations, but it seems like fun, dialogue and narrative-wise. The combat and explorations seem very limited though. Might play through the demo and make a decision, but that won’t be an instant purchase.
Also I thought I would be the only one thinking that these games don’t cover the bases, but I’m not. Quite samey games, some of these. (Samey as in, whatever has released before, not just during these two months.)
71LouBlu08Sun 2nd May 2021
The real hits these next two months are Pocoyo Party and DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power.
72ekwcllSun 2nd May 2021
it is funny how people always talking the switch always have more ports and rereleases coming than new games. Well so what! There are more than 80 million that bought the switch, and I bet not all of them have played the ports or older versions of some games. So get over it, let those people who never played have a chance to experience it on one of the best systems this generation. As for me, Nintendo and other companies, keep bringing the games: ports, new, rereleases and otherwise.
73rockodoodleSun 2nd May 2021
@ekwcll @somnambulance @JimmySpades generally I am happy with the Switch. It’s Nintendo not really producing much over the last 18 months. I don’t have an issue with ports as long as they produce new content also and they have almost to the point of embarrassment not produced much fresh content AT. ALL.
74OdnetninAgesSun 2nd May 2021
I really want Miitopia, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, and NEO: The World Ends with You. I also really want the Famicom Detective Club games, but I’m probably gonna have to wait on those, as much as I want to support them being released in English.
I’m getting Blaster Master Zero 3 day one too, but I’ll just get it digitally, not in the physical trilogy.
75somnambulanceSun 2nd May 2021
@rockodoodle Agree with that. 2017-2019, I was on a buying frenzy with my Switch. Love the console, might be my favorite console ever, but I can’t help feeling like Nintendo is deliberately allowing the other consoles to catch up. As of right now, I’ve got no preorders on my Switch. First time this has happened. I’ve got six on PS5, and that’s a console with a light release schedule.
