New Nintendo Switch games are set to arrive thick and fast over the next few months, as 2023 winds down and we start looking ahead to 2024. Thankfully, after a recent Direct event, we now know that there will be plenty to play in what might be one of the last couple of years of the Nintendo Switch lifecycle.

After the announcement of games like Super Mario RPG, the upcoming Nintendo Switch lineup is looking pretty good. There's a ton of new ports arriving soon, as well as sequels to beloved cult classics. If you're a Pokémon fan, there's DLC on the way for the most recent mainline games, and even a new Princess Peach game.

It could be a while before we hear about new Nintendo hardware, and what the big games releasing next year will be. For now, here’s a list of upcoming Nintendo Switch games, set to arrive by the end of 2023, and into 2024. Perhaps some of them may even make it into our list of best Switch games by the end of the year!
