Top 10 New Switch Games Coming in 2020

The Nintendo Switch is continuing to do well in the market since it was released. This console hybrid allows players to take their gaming on the go or enjoyed docked and played at home. We’re going to see plenty of new and exciting exclusives in 2020 and if you’re looking to keep track of some of the more anticipated titles for the Nintendo Switch in 2020 then check out our list below. We’ll continue to update and monitor this list but for now, here are the most anticipated Nintendo Switch games coming in 2020.


#10 Minecraft Dungeons

  • Developer: Mojang, Double Eleven
  • Publisher: Xbox Game Studios
  • Platforms: XBO, NS, PS4, PC
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: Online Only 4 Players
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

A new title spin-off is in the works and is slated to launch within 2020 called Minecraft Dungeons, a title that is based around classic dungeon crawling. If you enjoyed going through the game and exploring for loot then you’ll likely want to give Minecraft Dungeons an honest try. The game is all about seeking loot as you venture into the depths below. Of course, with that said, you won’t be placing or destroying blocks.

Instead, the levels are procedurally generated so you can go into the game with a fresh new world to explore and gather loot. If you’ve never played a dungeon crawler then this could be a great game to jump into as there won’t be any class base system attached. Normally there is a variety of classes you’ll be able to go through which limits the loot you can really make use of when discovered. In Minecraft Dungeons, players will be able to tweak and use any loot discovered making things a bit more lighthearted when playing through the game. 

#9 Little Nightmares 2
  • Developer: Tarsier Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

If you enjoyed Tarsier Studio’s Little Nightmares than you may have been holding out hope that a sequel would be in the works. The development team kept it a secret until Gamescom 2019 where it was unveiled that Little Nightmares 2 would be releasing in 2020. The sequel to the platformer is inbound, but you’ll be taking on the role of a new child named Mono.

It’s been stated that this game will take place after Six had escaped the Maw, but a new series of hostile worlds and obstacles are in your way of freedom. This game is a fairly new announced title right now at the time of writing this so not a whole lot of information has been released so far. You can likely expect plenty of new hostile levels to progress through and it seems that players will be able to wield some items in the level, likely to use against the horrifying enemies littered throughout the in-game world.

#8 Gods & Monsters
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

During E3 2019 Ubisoft took to the stage during their press briefing. It was during this briefing that we got the first reveal of a brand new IP, Gods & Monsters. We only got a small trailer but this is from the same development team that previously worked on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. For now, it looks like the development team wanted to stick with the deep lore of Greek mythology with an open world for players to explore. Speaking of the world, another aspect that gamers are quickly comparing this title to is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The upcoming title does look to have taken some aesthetic cues from the Nintendo exclusive but we’re not sure if this game will top the installment when it launches.

In terms of the story, Gods & Monsters will follow a hero who must save the gods. After the gods were fallen to Typhon, the hero was granted special powers in hopes that the player can maneuver through the world and defeat the monsters that flood the environments. For now, all we have is a cinematic trailer to the game so we’re having to wait until some gameplay footage is released into the public in order to see just how the mechanics will handle.

#7 Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise
  • Developer: Toybox
  • Publisher: Rising Star Games
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Do you recall Deadly Premonition? It w as a video game released back in 2010 and while it wasn’t a massive success, it grew a cult following. A lot of people compared to the game to Twin Peaks and felt that if the famed director and co-creator of the show, David Lynch, would have made the show into a game then that’s what Deadly Premonition would have been. This was a third-person survival horror game that followed a young FBI agent into a small town due to a strange murder case. Players are then introduced to this offbeat town where its clear that supernatural entities are at play.

During the September 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation, it was unveiled that not only will Nintendo Switch players receive a port of the game through the online market place but a sequel was inbound. We don’t have a ton of information now, but we do know that the story follows a young FBI agent named Aaliyah Davis who reopens an old investigation that takes her to the original protagonist, Francis York Morgan.

#6 No More Heroes 3
  • Developer: Grasshopper Manufacture
  • Publisher: Marvelous
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Set two years after the events of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes comes to No More Heroes III. The video game will retain the hack-and-slash the series is known for while featuring our protagonist Travis Touchdown. It seems that a new threat has emerged leaving Travis to stop an alien invasion and save humanity.

This will also mark ten years since the release of No More Heroes II so we’re expecting plenty of gamers interested in picking up the title, though, with such a large gap, we’re wondering if the development team has kept in-mind for newcomers.
