We saw a handful of games shown at the reveal last night, and the Treehouse event today is giving us an even better look at the library. But if you don’t have the time to sit around and watch stream after stream or haven’t been keeping up over the past year, then you might miss out on what’s been confirmed.

That’s okay, I’ll keep track for you.

What’s the launch lineup going to look like? What’s confirmed to be out this year, or at all? The Switch launch is just a month and a half away on March 3rd and Nintendo has come out swinging with a huge array of announced titles between launch, 2017, and 2018.

What’s been announced so far really is a huge array, with games of all types and sizes. Some old, some new, and mostly pretty awesome. You can hear the cries of naysayers in the distance, but there’s no denying this lineup is as varied as it is vast.

So let’s dive into the currently announced Nintendo Switch game list so you can make an informed purchasing decision and maybe — just maybe — get crazy hyped.

This list will be updated as games are announced or given release dates. But do be aware that not all of these games have been announced for localization, such as Dragon Quest 10, Dragon Quest 11, or Shin Megami Tensei.
