Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Ensure A Killer 2022 Switch Lineup

Similarly, the Nintendo Switch has had its biggest year since its launch. The pieces fell into place slowly (and might not hold up), but on paper at least, 2022 of the handheld console should be over. Pokémon Legends: Arceus as well as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, with much more in between. It’s 2017 again, but longer.

In the same year, Switch was launched with BATV and then Platoon 2 as well as Mario Odysseus in the following months. It felt like an accident partly because BATV was supposed to appear on the Wii U a few years ago, and is unlikely to happen again. Yet when the Switch hits mid-life of equipment this seems to be what is happening.

The Nintendo release calendar might be sneaking up on you. Here’s what happened last fall, when it was the seemingly sleepy season for the Switch ultimately held out against the competition thanks to a constant stream of breakthroughs from Metroid Horror to Pokémon Diamond, Diamond as well as shining pearl. It’s happening again this year after a sudden one-two hit that started with Nintendo Direct earlier this month and ended last Pokémon Presents on the weekend.

The first event showed a lot of new games and confirmed Platoon 3 hit this summer. The second shocked fans by announcing that 2022 will not only release the biggest Pokemon game in years but also open world Gen 9 in the form of Pokemon Scarlet as well as Violetta. Here are some other highlights from the upcoming lineup:

  • Triangle Strategy – March 4
  • Kirby and the Forgotten Land – March 25
  • Nintendo Switch Sport – April 29
  • Mario Strikers: Battle League – June 10th
  • Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes – June 24
  • Platoon 3 – Summer
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3 – September
  • Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope – TBD 2022
  • Bayonetta 3 – TBD 2022
  • Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – TBD 2022
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel – TBD 2022

A decent number of smaller ports and remakes are also planned for this year. Advance Wars 1+2: New boot camp appears in April. Octopus Traveler 2.5D version of previously unlocalized classic JRPG, Live live will be released in July. Hello, Games somehow put Nobody’s Sky on the switch. Mario Kart is 8best selling game on two different consoles mostly will double in size over the next year.

Nintendo started slowly laying the groundwork for this back in 2021 with updates on Platoon 3, Bayonetta 3 as well as BATV 2. But due to the fact that in recent weeks he has refused solid dates, it seemed that he was hitting everything at once. That Mario-maker often excels when it comes to starving his audience and then underestimating and overproducing. However, he has already revealed most of his hand this year and could be the strongest in years if he actually gets the chance to play it.

This, of course, is a big if When Pokemon Scarlet, as well as Violetta, was announced yesterday, many fans took it as an acknowledgment that BATV 2 after all, won’t make it this year. In the era of covid, Nintendo seems to have struggled more than most with production delays. At the same time, he had chances to remain evasive in the past, but he continues to window 2022 confirmation.

Even if it does end up falling out, there’s still plenty on the Switch 2022 plate to make it one of the strongest years it’s ever had. If only Nintendo would port Wind Awakening HD above.
