The Nintendo Switch has a big summer of games

Arms, Splatoon 2 and more get release dates

Chelsea Stark (she/her), executive editor, has been covering video games for more than a decade.

Nintendo spun through plenty of games by first- and third-party publishers during its Nintendo Direct this evening, but the message was clear: There are a lot of games coming to the Switch in the next few months.

The rapid-fire delivery included release dates for big titles that have already been demoed widely, like Arms, Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Chapter and Splatoon 2, but also titles Nintendo hasn’t said much about, like multiplayer title Project Mekuru.

Here’s the list of every title we got release dates for from that Nintendo Direct, including some with the murky “summer” release window.

Puyo Puyo Tetris: April 25 (with a demo out today)
Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition: May 11
Disgaea 5 Complete: May 23 (demo coming soon)
Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers: May 26
Arms: June 16
Splatoon 2: July 21
Fate/Estella: July 25
Sonic Mania: Summer
Sine Mora X: Summer
Project Mekuru (working title): Summer
Namco Museum: Summer

We also learned Ubisoft is bringing a version of Monopoly to the Switch in the fall, and Payday 2 will come in 2017.
