Whoa, there's a lot of Switch games on the horizon

Behold, the mighty infographic: one of the best marketing tools known to man. It's intoxicating looking at these and just reading through all of the beautiful logos, and hey, it's educational too!

Nintendo shared their latest graphic with us this past weekend, and man does it conveniently recap a lot of what was shared in the last explosive Nintendo Direct presentation. Although not everything is coming this year per se (like Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition or Animal Crossing) most of it is, including heavy-hitters like Overwatch, Pokemon Sword & Shield, Zelda: Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Daemon x Machina.

There's also a few blink and you'll miss them inclusions like Jedi Knight and Jedi Outcast ports, as well as general plugs for updates/DLC in games like Smash Ultimate and Tetris 99. It's a good time to be a Switch owner! That includes the release of the upcoming Switch Lite hardware, which should bolster Nintendo's holiday sales: which, in turn, means a larger Switch playerbase and more support.

It's crazy how much this industry ebbs and flows: it feels like just yesterday that I was quietly gaming on my Wii U, enjoying a number of gems, while most people had given up on it (shoutout to the fantastic Tokyo Mirage Sessions, an upcoming Wii U-to-Switch-port that more people will be able to appreciate).
