Nintendo Switch got off to a hot start in 2017, not only breaking sales records but also amassing an impressive library of games. Whether you're looking for major exclusives from Nintendo, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, to smaller gems like Golf Story and Snipperclips, it was a great year to own Switch.
Likewise, 2018 is shaping up to be a great year for the hybrid console, too. In the video feature above, we run through the year's most anticipated games. There are those that we already know well, like Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2; sequels to beloved niche games, such as No More Heroes follow-up Travis Strikes Again; and those that we know virtually nothing about, like Fire Emblem, which is an exciting question mark given the franchise's pedigree. We also have a gallery looking at these games, as well as dives into the most anticipated PS4 games, Xbox One games, and PC games of the year.
However you slice it, there's a lot to look forward to in 2018 if you own a Switch. And that's just what we've known about going into the year--Nintendo made a ton of announcements during a surprise Nintendo Direct presentation. During that, we learned that the newly announced Dark Souls Remastered is coming to Switch, as are The World Ends With You, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Tennis Aces, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, and SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy. Along with those, there will be new reasons to boot up Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and Pokken Tournament DX.
As for what else might happen this year, we've got plenty of predictions for gaming in 2018, some of which are bound to come true (we hope).
