I preordered a Nintendo Switch last night before I went to bed and I came up with a list of games that I want for it and I included my wishlist for games that I hope come to the console.
Games I’m Going To Buy
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Lets get this one out of the way. No game wowed me more then this one. The new trailer for Breath of the Wild was fantastic and it made me want the game that much more. It’s already my most anticipated game of 2017 and watching that trailer so many times made me want it that much more.
Super Mario Odyssey
I didn’t expect to fall in love with the Super Mario reveal, but I did. This game looks like the next Super Mario 64. The graphics are stunning, and gameplay looks fantastic. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2
I wasn’t expecting another Xenoblade Chronicles game so soon after X. I was really surprised when this game was revealed and I need to have it. It looks more linear than Xenoblade X, but as long as the story is good I don’t care. I need this game in my life.
Fire Emblem Warriors
A Dynasty Warriors inspired Fire Emblem game? If we can play as half of the classic Fire Emblem characters in this game it’s going to be a major hit. More Fire Emblem is never a bad thing.
Shin Megami Tensei
We didn’t see much of anything regarding this game, but it was announced and the fanboy in me screamed when I realized what I was watching. The Shin Megami Tensei games are fantastic and if this game really is being ran on Unreal Engine 4 I have no doubt that it’s going to look fantastic and have great gameplay too.
Dragon Quest X/XI
There are four Dragon Quest games coming to the Switch. Square Enix wasn’t joking when they said they were going to support this thing. I’m looking forward to both of these games and since the Switch is region free I’ll be able to play them when they release in Japan :).
Dragon Quest Heroes I&II
The action oriented Dragon Heroes games are also coming to the Nintendo Switch and I want both of them. I originally played the first game on PC, but these games are meant to be played with a controller and I would love to add these to my collection of games on my future Switch.
I wasn’t sure if I should place this on the list because I don’t really know much about it, but I’m actually pretty excited about it because it looks really old school. This one is also being developed by Square Enix by the way.
Games I’ll Get If They’re Priced Right
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition
I’m not dropping $60 on game that I already own the Wii U, but once this goes down to $30 I’ll definitely pick it up. More Mario Kart is never a bad thing.
Bomberman is back everyone. It came out of nowhere and it doesn’t look that bad. I’m willing to drop $20 on it, but can’t see myself going any higher then that. I think I can have some pretty crazy multiplayer matches on it too.
This game surprised me. I thought it was going to be pretty crappy, but I really liked what I saw today. The gameplay, rpg elements, and art style really appeal to me. I can see myself spending a bunch of hours in this game if it’s priced right.
Street Fighter 2
Street Fighter 2 is my all time favorite fighting game, but I won’t go past a certain price for it. $20 is probably my maximum here.
A New Metroid Game
It’s been 7 years… 7 long years since we’ve gotten a new Metroid game and it’s time Nintendo. It’s time to give us all what we’ve been patiently waiting for. I think the next Metroid game should go back to it’s roots. Bring back that Metroidvania style that we all fell in love with back in the day. I’m not against another game like Metroid Prime, but I would prefer the classic style. Just please don’t give us that shit you called Metroid on the 3DS. I refuse to call that a Metroid game.
Pokemon Stars (or whatever the hell you’re going to call it.)
Pokemon was also missing from the big Nintendo Switch reveal. I really wanted to see something on it, but didn’t get it. It’s either happening or it’s not. I consider the Switch a handheld that can be used on your TV instead of a console to compete with the Xbox and Playstation. Make my dreams come true and give us a core Pokemon game that can be played on our TV.
More Games From Bethesda
I was excited when Bethesda announced their support for the Switch, but I’ll be honest. I won’t be buying Skyrim for it. At least not right away because I’ve already played it to death and have the best version on the PC. I would have loved if they would have announced Fallout 4 or Doom on it. That would show people that you’re serious about supporting the platform instead of 6 year old Skyrim…
I need some Madden in my life. Not Fifa or NBA 2K18. Madden! I’m a football nut and I haven’t played Madden in years because I won’t buy a Xbox or Playstation. Make it happen EA.
A New F-Zero Game
That small clip that we saw near the end of Nintendo’s conference looked like F-Zero to me. If it’s true I’m going to be very happy. If it’s not I’m going to be heartbroken. How about reviving this franchise Nintendo? Many people want it to comeback along with some of your other ignored IPs.
That’s my list of games that I want for the Nintendo Switch so far. I’m surprised the list is that big. What are some games you’re looking forward to on the Switch?
This was all I could think of at the moment. I’ll most likely make the list longer as I come up with more games or just make another article depending on how many games I find for the Switch that I want or games that I want made for the Switch.
