Part 2 of 4.

It’s hard to believe the Nintendo Switch is already five and a half years old and yet, despite its inferiority compared to the more powerful console alternatives, the hybrid platform has been able to hold its own and boasts such an incredible library of games. In fact, sometimes, with so many games coming to the Nintendo Switch, it’s all too easy to forget about the many upcoming releases there are, but that’s where we come in.

To combat this dreaded issue, we have gotten into the habit of highlighting the many games that are on their way to Switch and first up, we’re highlighting 16 games that are releasing this October, but so as not to overwhelm our readers, we are going to be highlighting four games a day, for the next four days. Having kicked off our October checklist yesterday, welcome back for Part 2:
