Nintendo Switch: 10 Awesome Games With Overdue Sequels

The Switch Has An Impressive Library Already, But There's Room For Growth.


The Nintendo Switch has been a rousing success. Rebounding out of the horrendous cycle of the Wii U, Nintendo has shown that there is plenty of fight left in the old (Ninten)dog. The Switch's success has certainly benefited from the slowdown of PS4 sales, but make no mistake: Nintendo has succeeded on its own merits.

It is the result of a two-pronged strategy that is necessary for any thriving console; great and frequent exclusives, with lots of third-party support.

The Switch, despite only being three years old, is home to a number of phenomenal, must-have games; Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild; Super Mario Odyssey; Mario Kart 8 Deluxe; and Octopath Traveller, to name but a few. And the attach rates for those games are huge, meaning most Switch owners buy one or all of those titles.

The system has been such a runaway success, we're seeing Nintendo do things it normally wouldn't, like playing nice with competitors, granting gamers' wishes, and even making direct sequels. Nintendo doesn't often make sequels in the same generation, but it recently bucked that trend with Breath of the Wild.

As such, we're left wondering what other Nintendo titles should get sequels? And, of course, that's why you're here. So let's get to it.
