The year 2022 has just begun, and we can say that we can’t cope with so many great games. Not only because of those that have already been released, but because of a trail of great AAAs and indies that promise… and a lot.
There are them on PlayStation, Xbox and PC, but without a doubt Nintendo Switch will have a great role in this splendid 2022. Without going any further, the long-awaited Breath of the Wild 2 will be the icing on the cake.
Last year we had some little gems like Metroid Dread or Pokémon Diamante Diamante y Perla Shiny, but both titles will come to naught with what’s to come in 2022.
If you own a Nintendo Switch, we’re sure the following 9 games will give you daydreams. In case you don’t have one, you might want to get your hands on one soon.
The hardest Nintendo Switch games
In this list you will find the 10 most difficult Nintendo Switch. Titles only suitable for those players who are looking for a challenge and a challenge to match
Whether you’re a fan of Pokémon, like the return of Kirby, or want to relive the frantic adventures of Bayonetta, this year more than justifies having a Nintendo Switch at home.
Without further delay, let’s see the jewels that are coming for our little hybrid console: Games of 2022 that are worth buying a Nintendo Switch for… well if it is worth it.
POKÉMON LEGENDS: ARCEUS
A revolution in the Game Freak saga, which you will already be enjoying on your Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Legends Arceus went on sale on January 28, and here you can read our analysis. Nothing will be the same for Pokémon after this great open world game.
Pokémon Legends Arceus discards the classic formula of the saga, betting on a huge Hisui region full of secrets, Pokémon, characters and subplots. Leave capturing and turn-based fighting behind, because this is ”the Monster Hunter of Pokémon”. And it has marked a before and after.
MARIO + RABBIDS: SPARKS OF HOPE
The first installment of Mario + Rabbids was one of the first exclusive to Switch, which left us speechless for its fun strategy game formula, Ubisoft is already preparing its sequel, S parks of Hope, which promises to leave in diapers what was seen in the first game when it is released in the hybrid.
Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope It will arrive this year (no date yet), with new characters from the Rabbids universe, more tactical options for their fights, crazy items and an improved multiplayer variant. In other words, it will be the complete symphony orchestrated by Ubisoft and Nintendo.
After a long time, our beloved witch Bayonetta will be back, with a frenetic adventure developed by Platinum Games.
Bayonetta 3 will be a hack and slash action adventure hard to forget, with a particular gothic aesthetic and new playable mechanics.
It is even said that it will rescue elements of the canceled Scalebound, and a lot plus. Bayonetta 3 will bring more frenetic combat, impossible combos and the ability to control monsters at will. If you liked the first two parts and Astral Chain, this promises to be one of your GOTY for 2022.
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: BREATH OF THE WILD 2
Breath of the Wild marked an era when it was released in 2017, and it was not in vain that it deservedly won the GOTY award that year. Since then, many have tried to imitate its groundbreaking open world formula. But beware, the King is back this year with his long-awaited sequel.
Nintendo revealed a small glimpse of what Breath of the Wild 2 will be at E3 2021 , and we can wait longer to try it. Link and Zelda will revisit a beautiful Kingdom of Hyrule, with mechanics such as flight, exploration, crafting or islands suspended in the air.
KIRBY AND THE FORGOTTEN LAND
Our dear pink friend is back after a long time. HAL Laboratory has put all the meat on the grill with Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which arrives on March 25 on Nintendo Switch. Kirby in a post-apocalyptic open world? Indeed, so hang on, there are curves coming.
Little Kirby will arrive at a forgotten civilization, and he will have to join Elfilin to rescue the Waddle Dees. He returns the mechanic of copying skills, which will allow you to shoot from afar, drill in the scenarios and much more. In addition, he will have a cooperative mode.
Nintendo’s quintessential shooter saga will also return this year. If Splatoon 2 was one of the great console exclusives, we have no doubt that its sequel will repeat its enormous success. Splatoon 3 will bring the a ction to a futuristic city, with desert environments and a very peculiar visual style.
We can expect more and better in Splatoon 3. We don’t know its release date, but we do know that it will have a story mode (individual and cooperative multiplayer), quick games, qualifying games and all the magic of its multicolored proposal. The Call of Duty for Nintendo Switch, wow.
ADVANCE WARS 1+2: RE-BOOT CAMP
A great nostalgic surprise for Nintendo Switch. Do you remember the Advance Wars saga for Game Boy Advance? Well, this year a ”new” installment will arrive, remastered and well up to date for Nintendo’s hybrid console. We are talking about a compilation developed by WayForward.
Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp rescues the best of the two original games, with new graphics, mechanics and characters, but maintaining the strategic bases. You will attend great turn-based combats, where skill is as important as planning. A luxury.
METROID PRIME 4 / METROID PRIME REMASTER
We come to the ”doubtful” part of the list. And We say this because the following games are NOT confirmed for this year on Nintendo Switch On the one hand, we have the rumored remaster of Metroid Prime, that excellent shooter released for the Gamecube… that would return with a tune-up.
On the horizon is Metroid Prime 4, announced in 2017 and about which we haven’t heard anything for years. The success of Metroid Dread and the reveal of Bayonetta 3 could bring Samus Aran’s adventure closer to 2022. Be that as it may, we expect a great game (or maybe two) from the hands of Retro Studios.
HOLLOW KNIGHT : SILKSONG
We dress up as a clown (glorious meme) to get to Hollow Knight Silksong. His first installment needs no introduction: it is a masterpiece and an unrepeatable metroidvania. We are looking forward to seeing what Team Cherry is capable of with its sequel, which still has a date for this year 2022.
There are not a few leaks that place it in the first quarter of this anus. Hopefully sooner rather than later, but Hollow Knight Silksong (which will be a Switch exclusive on consoles) will plunge Hornet into challenging combat, platforming, delicious art style, and very high difficulty
The best exclusive games that only you can play on Nintendo Switch
Nintendo Switch has a large catalog of games, where its great exclusive titles shine with their own light, which you cannot play on other platforms.
These are the 9 great games that will arrive this year on Nintendo Switch (maybe some of them won’t), and that justify the purchase of the hybrid console. What a 2022 full of great games, right?
Which of these titles are you most looking forward to for your Switch? Do you think any will be delayed to 2023? Be that as it may, Nintendo Switch will swell its catalog with a good handful of exclusives… that make us dream every night.
