Nintendo Switch 2021 gaming lineup has reached the second half of this year, and Switch fans have plenty to look forward to over the coming months as we slide inexorably towards the Holiday season and several 2022 promises.
Nintendo Switch 2021- August & September Games
Below we’ve listed some of the upcoming highlights of big Switch games scheduled for August and September, as we cruise over the hump and hit our stride in the downhill section of Nintendo Switch 2021.
No More Heroes III – 27 August
Originally slated for a 2020 release, as with so many games No More Heroes 3 got pushed into this year. We’ve enjoyed both of Travis Touchdown’s original Wii games on Switch in the meantime, and we also enjoyed the Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes side-story, but this sequel looks set to deliver the full porcelain-throned, laser-sworded Touchdown experience. The final chapter of the NMH trilogy is coming at the end of August.
Sonic Colors: Ultimate – 7th September
A remaster of the Wii-exclusive Sonic Colo(u)rs, SEGA‘s 30th-anniversary tie-in Sonic Colo(u)rs: Ultimate brings what is arguably one of the finest 3D Sonic games ever to Switch. We spent some hands-on time with a version of the game, and you can check out our thoughts so far in Alex’s video, but we’re definitely excited to see one of the hedgehog’s best games get a second chance on Switch. This game will be out on 7th September 2021.
WarioWare: Get It Together! – 10th September
Mario’s greedy nemesis Wario is finally bringing his brand of micro-game mayhem to Switch in the form of WarioWare: Get It Together!, the long-awaited Switch entry in the series that now includes a simultaneous 2-player mode and the ability to play not only as of the titular villain but also his friends. It’s been too long since we indulged in some manic micro-games, so we can’t wait to play this on 10th September.
Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom – 17th September
This sequel originally came to PS4 back in 2018, and we’ve been hoping this might find its way to Switch ever since the port of Wrath of the White Witch. Set 100 years since the events of that game, it was announced for Switch in May in both physical and digital forms. This super-exciting game will be out on 17th September.
Are you excited for these games?
