The distribution of financial reports mainly allows you to look back over the past months or, in some cases, the year. But it can also be used to give an idea of what the future holds. Or to give news of projects already announced. Nintendo has just recalled what awaits Switch users in terms of home productions.
Nintendo has just provided an update on the release dates for big games coming to Switch. And this is about titles planned for the end of 2021, 2022 and potentially after. Of course, the document deals with games produced and / or published by Nintendo directly.
As for the games of 2021 still to be published, it risks a few cartridges to shoot at Nintendo. Shin Megami Tensei V will indeed arrive on November 12 in Europe. And it will be closely followed by the Sparkling Diamond Pokémon and the Sparkling Pearl Pokémon on November 19. The 2021 First Party Games Ball will end on December 3 with the release of Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain.

Nintendo’s financial report then moves on to releases scheduled for 2022. Next year on Switch on the First Party side will debut with Pokémon Legends: Arceus on January 28. The precise dates end, however, with Triangle Strategy, scheduled for March 4, 2022.
After that, European Switch game release dates become less concrete on Nintendo’s document. Kirby and the Forgotten World as well as Advance Wars 1 + 2: Re-Boot Camp are both listed for the “spring 2022. “
As for Splatoon 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 and Bayonetta 3, we have to be content with a simple “2022. ” Nintendo recalls in passing that the final title of the sequel to Breath of the Wild has not yet been revealed.
Towards 2022 and beyond
Nintendo concludes its table with Metroid Prime 4. The latter, whose final title has not been communicated either, simply does not have a release date. Metroid fans must indeed be content with a simple “TBA. “ This means that its release date, or even year, has yet to be announced. Obviously, this does not exclude marketing in 2022 in Europe. But it can also portend a later release.
As indicated by the Kyoto firm, all the dates mentioned in this document may still change. What’s more, it’s highly likely that Nintendo has other unannounced titles in store for next year as well. A Switch version of the first Metroid could, for example, fill the 2022 release schedule.
That being said, it’s interesting that Nintendo still plans to release some very low-key titles like Bayonetta 3 next year. Switch players who are waiting for these games will, however, have to remain patient while waiting for more specific dates.
