Another huge Switch leak has been released, revealing a new Pikmin game, ports of the bigger Wii U titles, and some surprises. This report again comes from reliable Nintendo insider Laura Dale of LetsPlayVideoGames, who posted a timeline of the Switch release schedule on her Twitter.

For folk who have been asking, this is my best attempt to lay out Nintendo Switch Software support as I understand it.

Here is the list of games:

Day One

First Six Months

  • Super Smash Bros.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Telltale Guardians of the Galaxy (weekly episodes leading to the movie)
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Xenoblade Chronicles X (port coming late summer)
  • Super Mario Maker
  • The Silver Case


  • Pokemon Stars (to be released Summer or Autumn)
  • Pikmin 4 (a reboot of the franchise, coming Autumn)
  • Sonic 2017


With this lineup, it looks like Nintendo is giving plenty of opportunities for people who skipped the Wii U to buy a Switch and pick up some of the rather excellent games they originally missed out on.
