Top Upcoming Nintendo Switch Video Games of 2019

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes
  • Developer: Grasshopper Manufacture
  • Publisher: Marvelous
  • Platforms: Switch
  • Release: January 18, 2019

Taking part of the No More Heroes franchise, Grasshopper Manufacture is releasing Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes exclusively on the Nintendo Switch in 2019. With that said, you can expect an over-the-top hack-and-slash experience.

Players will find that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes will take place seven years after the events of No More Heroes 2 where Badman seeks to take down Travis for murdering his daughter, Bad Girl. During the scuffle, the duo finds themselves trapped in a canceled video game console crated by Dr. Juvenile called the Death Drive MK-II.

Stuck in the console, players will have to race through six different video games on the console collecting a Death Ball in order to grant a wish.


Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
  • Developers: Double Damage Games
  • Publisher: Double Damage Games
  • Platforms: PS4, PC, NS
  • Release: 2019

If you enjoyed Rebel Galaxy then you’ll want to take note of Rebel Galaxy Outlaw which is coming out in 2019. So far the details are a bit scarce but we do know that the game will take place about thirty years prior to the events of the first game where players will take on the role as Juno Markev.

Juno is a smuggler that ends up in debit with a casino in order to gain a ship so as a result we can expect the ship combat aspect to the game will still be a major component to the video game. However, it seems that the development team is looking to deliver a stronger narrative journey for players to uncover as they progress. Overall, the developers are taking all the aspects that made Rebel Galaxy work and further enhancing them in this upcoming prequel.

Rebel Galaxy unfortunately has not released on the Nintendo Switch platform so we’re also curios as to if we’ll see a port of the original title coming in the near future. However, because this game is set as a prequel, you won’t need to play the game in order to understand the narrative.


Luigi’s Mansion 3
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

The Luigi’s Mansion series doesn’t have very many installments attached. Outside of its main debut on the Nintendo GameCube, the series only has one other console installment for the Nintendo 3DS called Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. With the franchise, players are put into the role of Luigi who must bust a variety of ghosts and while we knew that the original installment was soon finding a release again in the market for the Nintendo 3DS, it came as a surprise that a third installment was in the works.

During a September 2018 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is being developed for the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any details as to what this third installment will entail quite yet, but it’s supposedly coming into the market in 2019.

We’re likely going to see some type of Joy-Con motion controller gameplay featured within the game but again, at this point, we’re simply speculating as to what we can expect from the upcoming installment.


New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
  • Developer: Nintendo
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

During the September Nintendo Direct, the video game industry giant unveiled that New Super Mario Bros. would see a new release on the Nintendo Switch. The original New Super Mario Bros video game titles were a hit when they released on the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Wii. Since the Nintendo Switch is bringing in plenty of new adopters regularly, Nintendo is dusting off their catalog of video game titles available and giving it a new coat of paint along with some additional features.

New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe is bringing back the Wii title release for the Nintendo Switch while also adding in two new characters. The new characters are Nabbit who will not take any damage against enemies and Toadette who can transform into Peachette with special abilities such as a double jump or slowly falls.


Town (Working Title)
  • Developer: Game Freak
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

Development studio Game Freak may be best known for their work on the Pokemon franchise but over the years the development studio has delivered other RPG focused games into the market. During the September Nintendo Direct, we got the unveiling of their next big IP release in the development, Town. This is only a working title at the moment and very few details have been released.

What we do know so far is that this game will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive in which players are put into an old village that previously lived harmoniously. That suddenly changed when the village started to spawn monsters for players to defeat. As players go through this turn-based combat RPG title they’ll learn of the reason behind the sudden appearance of monsters in the town.
