Metroid Prime 4 and Other Switch Games Announced for 2018 and Beyond

At Nintendo’s E3 2017 Nintendo Spotlight event, they showed off several games that will release in 2017, but also a few strong announcements for 2018 and beyond. Let’s take a look at what awaits us in the Nintendo Switch’s future.

Metroid Prime 4

The biggest announcement was a short tease for Metroid Prime 4. We don’t know what this new game will involve or when it will come out, but it’s exciting to know a new Metroid Prime game is on the way.


A new Kirby game is also coming in 2018. This HD Kirby game will feature additional characters you can recruit as helpers, with optional multiplayer.


Yoshi will also star in a new adventure on the Switch in 2018. This adorable side-scrolling platformer lets you “flip” each stage to search both its front and back. Two players will be able to play together.


Finally, while it might not be out for a while and we don’t know anything about it, The Pokémon Company confirmed that a new core Pokémon game is in development for the Nintendo Switch.

In Conclusion

A new Metroid Prime game, a main Pokémon entry, and new games for Kirby and Yoshi make the Switch’s future look bright. Which of these do you most want to learn more about?

    Love the look of that Yoshi title, great to see Kirby too. I suppose Smash and Animal Crossing, Pokemon might be shown next year. Still awaiting that kirby 3ds title for holiday of this year… maybe they will show tomorrow.
