The Nintendo Switch console has been around for over five years, yet its momentum is showing no signs of fading. That's thanks to a combination of multiplatform releases, new DLC for some of the console's greatest games, and titles that are completely exclusive to the platform.
Freshly Frosted, a puzzle game that is one of the highest-rated games of the year, and Neon White, a highly-rated game, are two of the Nintendo Switch's most popular titles. However, those who prefer consoles will need to get it on Nintendo's home console/handheld hybrid if they want to see all the fuss.
Neon White is one of the few games to receive a 90 or higher review rating in 2022. Other 90 or above rated games released for Nintendo Switch in 2022 include Portal: Companion Collection, which is a collection of the first two Portal games, and the Dead Cells: The Queen & Sea DLC.
The Nintendo Switch has had one notable release this year after another, notably with Pokemon Legends: Arceus, a well-known game that fundamentally altered the core Pokemon game formula. This is mainly due to the risky changes it made to the established formula.
Kirby and the Forgotten Land is one of the most powerful new platformers released this year, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is one of the most anticipated new JRPGs to launch in 2022. As long as those games meet expectations, Nintendo will finish 2022 as strong as it began.
Exclusive game releases like Splatoon 3 and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, as well as major multiplatform games like Hogwarts Legacy, are expected later this year on Nintendo Switch. There should be no shortage of games for Switch owners to enjoy, with 2022 making some significant additions to the console's extensive library.
