Nintendo Switch Launch Titles Ahead Of March 3rd Launch
Ok with the Nintendo Switch only a few days away now I thought it would be a good time to write a list of all the confirmed games for the Nintendo Switch on it’s March 3rd Launch.
Cheapest Price at time of writing: 365Games £34.99
Nintendo’s own game 1-2 Switch will be one of very few launch titles for the Switch, While looking like a fun game you can’t help but think this is just another Wii Sports that would have normally come with the console to show off the Switches Capabilities. In 1-2 switch you armed with a Joy-Con and will have to face your opponent, not the screen! With games on 1-2 Switch including Sword Fighting, Soda Shaking, Shaving, Quick Draw and even milking a cow you could say this game is a little weird but in all honesty after a few drinks with a few mates round this could be the ideal party game! Playable in either TV mode or Portable mode this is great for either a setup at home or just playing at a mates house without all the setup of a TV.
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
Cheapest Price at time of writing: Tesco £47.99
Ok I really don’t think I need to say much about this game and if you don’t know what Breath Of The Wild is you have probably been living under a rock! Nintendo’s console seller Zelda will be making it’s way onto the switch for March 3rd and will most likely basically sell the Nintendo Switch!
With a Perfect 10/10 rating from Edge magazine it kind of tells you how good this game is going to be and all what we had hoped for.
The 19th main installment of the Zelda series is set in a free roaming massive open world and when we say massive we mean bigger than Skyrim massive! More than 100 shrines to discover and explore the sheer size of this game is sure to amaze! Real world physics will always keep things interesting and mean you will need to discover the best ways to take out your opponents. Breath Of The Wild will be releasing on both the Switch and the Wii U on March 3rd.
The only negative we can find for the game is that it’s not out yet! Hurry up Friday we want to get playing!!

Fast RMX is an anti-gravity vehicle racer. Featuring 30 tracks set in futuristic cities, canyons, alpine peaks and loads more there seems to be plenty of variety from information given. Multiplayer options will feature local 4 player split screen and also 8 player online multiplayer. The game will run at 60 frames per second at 1080p. With Nintendo being pretty thin on the ground for racers they will be hoping Fast RMX can be a decent racer until the arrival of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
Cheapest Price at time of writing: e-store £18
Snipperclips only recently announced it will be releasing as a launch title March 3rd. Snipperclips looks like an interesting puzzle game with great multiplayer options. In snipperclips you will take your Joy-Con controller and cut characters you will then snip and clip into new shapes to solve puzzles. There is also a party mode where 2-4 players can take on each other in a Blitz mode.
A demo for snipperclips will be available March 3rd so you will be able to try and see if the game is for you.
I Am Setsuna
Cheapest Price at time of writing: TBC
I Am Setsuna will be released on the Switch after already being available on the PlayStation 4 and Steam (PC) already. Reading reviews on them two platforms the game has done ok with an average of around 7/10 so maybe a good one to pickup on launch.
I Am Setsuna is a Japanese RPG published by Final Fantasy developers Square Enix, gameplay is very much Final Fantasy of old turn based combat with also a very much story driven base.
Super Bomberman R
Cheapest Price at time of writing: FluBit £41.89
Great news for the Switch getting Super Bomberman r on launch day! Nintendo’s newest version of the old classic looks to be one of the stronger launch titles available.
Developed by Konami this latest version of Bomberman will feature 8 player battles on local and online connections all in photo-real graphics! With the promise of the same game system and controls while having a fresh take on the classic title from years ago. Along with Zelda this could be one title you need to own on March 3rd!
Cheapest Price at time of writing: Argos £49.99
Slylanders Imaginators will allow you to play anytime anywhere on the Nintendo Switch. You will need to use Imaginite creation crystals to create your very own skylanders. With Skylanders already available on most other platforms it was inevitable the Switch would be getting it and for fans of the series this could be a must have for the Switch!
Just Dance 2017
Cheapest Price at time of writing: 365Games £42.99
Just Dance 2017 will be another great family/Party game available from launch and the only dance title available for the Switch. Already available on most other platforms this like Skylanders will be nothing new to most Switch player who may or may not have the game on another console. Just Dance 2017 will feature 40 Hot New tracks and an ever growing tracklist of 200+ songs including exclusive track How Deep Os Your Love.
World Of Goo, Little Inferno and Human Resource Machine
Cheapest Price’s at time of writing:TBC
These 3 games will be coming to the Switch on March 3rd all available separately although there is a rumour they may actually miss launch day as a graphic was changed that stated they would be available March 3rd and changed to available soon.
Cheapest Price’s at time of writing:TBC
Shovel knight is a classic platformer set in 8-bit retro aesthetic, coming launch day on the Switch it’s one of few available.
Ok so there is all the Launch titles for the Switch come March 3rd, yes it really isn’t that impressive but I think we all know the one game that will pull it through a pretty tough launch. There is a good bit of variety with the launch games with Super Bomberman R and 1-2 Switch so if you do actually remove Zelda from the console there is other good titles to play but what we are hoping is by the time we have explored all of Hyrule and the rest in Breath Of The Wild another big title will be coming,
