Nintendo Switch 2021 Games: Every Title Scheduled to Release Next Year

Nintendo went, mostly, under the radar in 2020. The gaming industry has been swallowed whole by the recent releases of Sony's PlayStation 5 and Microsoft's Xbox Series X/S, but the Switch still had a solid year.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons dominated the industry in the first half of 2020, especially when the global pandemic first went rampant in the U.S. Plus, there was the re-release of classic Mario games like Super Mario 64, Sunshine and Galaxy, giving Nintendo faithful a nice, nostalgic hit of the familiar.

But what lies ahead for the Switch in 2021? While the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will be looking to continue their momentum, Nintendo's console will have some high-profile games of its own, between Monster Hunter Rise and Bravely Default 2, as well as a long list of indie games.

Below, we've listed every Nintendo Switch game that's scheduled to come out in 2021. Note: This list is still being compiled and will be updated if there's any change to release dates.
