Part 4 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 already covered the likes of Guardian Tales, NieR:Automata: The End of YoRHa Edition, LEGO Bricktales, MARIO + RABBIDS SPARKS OF HOPE, Persona 5 Royal and so many more, welcome to the final instalment. This is Part 4:

 

[Guide] 16 Upcoming Games for Nintendo Switch in October: (Part 4)

New Tales from the Borderlands (October 21, 2022)

Publisher: Take-Two Interactive

Genre: Action, Adventure, Other

No. of Players: 1 (Single Player)

File Size: 6.1 GB

Price: $39.99

 

Within the perpetually war-torn metropolis of Promethea, you’ll control Anu, Octavio, and Fran on the worst day of their lives. Help these three lovable losers as they endeavor to change the world (and maybe even save it)!

It’s time to fight back against exploitation and corporate greed. It’s time to make Mayhem your business.

  • THREE NOBODIES ON A MISSION – Decide the fates of altruistic scientist Anu, her ambitious, “”streetwise”” brother Octavio, and the fierce, frogurt-slinging Fran. With nothing left to lose and everything to gain, you’ll claw and con your way through this thrilling five-part story full of gun-toting goons, otherworldly beasts, and delicious tacos.
  • AN EXPLOSIVE CINEMATIC ADVENTURE – The Borderlands aren’t just home to Vault Hunters, psychos, and weapons-corp CEOs—they’re full of downtrodden, intrepid civilians just trying to get by. With a host of returning and fresh faces, including an assassin bot with comedic aspirations and a less-murderous-than-usual bandit, this unforgettable tale is sure to delight fans new and old.
  • YOU CONTROL THE FINAL OUTCOME – The decisions you make determine how your story ends. Whether it’s Anu’s vision of a universe that markets more than weapons, Octavio’s dreams of fame and fortune, or Fran’s frosty plot for revenge—their success or failure depends on you.

Yomawari: Lost in the Dark (US: October 25, 2022 | EU: October 28, 2022)

Publisher: NIS America

Genre: Adventure, Puzzle

No. of Players: 1 (Single Player)

File Size: 2 GB

Price: $39.99

 

A young girl must explore a haunted town and search for her missing memories in order to break a curse. She’ll have to rely on only her wits, cunning, and a well-placed hiding spot or two to evade the twisted ghosts that wander the streets.

Factorio (October 28, 2022)

Publisher: Wube Software

Genre: Simulation, Strategy

No. of Players: 1 (Single Player) | 1 – 64 (Online)

File Size: 1.4 GB

Price: N/A

 

Factorio is a game in which you build and maintain factories. You will be mining resources, researching technologies, building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies. In the beginning you will find yourself chopping trees, mining ores and crafting mechanical arms and transport belts by hand, but in short time you can become an industrial powerhouse, with huge solar fields, oil refining and cracking, manufacture and deployment of construction and logistic robots, all for your resource needs. However this heavy exploitation of the planet’s resources does not sit nicely with the locals, so you will have to be prepared to defend yourself and your machine empire.

Join forces with other players in cooperative Multiplayer, create huge factories, collaborate and delegate tasks between you and your friends. While the core gameplay is in the form of the freeplay scenario, there are a range of interesting challenges in the form of Scenarios. If you don’t find any maps or scenarios you enjoy, you can create your own with the in-game Map Editor, place down entities, enemies, and terrain in any way you like.

Bayonetta 3 (October 21, 2022)

Publisher: Nintendo

Genre: Action

No. of Players: 1 (Single Player)

File Size: 16 GB

Price: $59.99

 

Bayonetta struts through multiple locations in an all-new, over-the-top climax action game. Sporting a wicked new ensemble and somehow familiar pigtails, the titular Umbra Witch must face a mysterious evil using her signature guns and time-slowing Witch Time ability. This time, invading manmade bioweapons called Homunculi find themselves in Bayonetta’s crosshairs.

  • Get ready for a devilishly good time – Tap into Bayonetta’s naughtier side with Demon Masquerade, a new ability that channels the demon linked to her weapon allowing for some exciting action options, not to mention some hair-raising combos. She can also summon her demonic darlings like Gomorrah, Malphas, and Phantasmaraneae during battle, unleashing their demonic powers in the heat of combat and in new, larger-than-life battles where you directly control the action.
  • A bounty of Bayonettas – Fight your way through the streets of Tokyo, the mountains of China, and many other locales! Along the way you’ll meet a virtual coven of Bayonettas, each more fabulous than the last. You’ll also slash and slay as Viola, a feisty witch in training who fights with a sword and a capricious companion, the demon Cheshire. Find out what fate awaits Bayonetta, and if this arcane alliance can really save reality!

All details regarding the games above were true at the time we sourced them directly from Nintendo’s own website. If there are any changes between now and each game’s eventual release, we apologize in advance and we hope you have enjoyed the selected titles so far. We hope you have enjoyed our deep dive into games releasing this October and if you’d like us to do the same next month, please let us know in the comments below.
