Most Hyped Nintendo Switch Games 2018

The Top Ten
1 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Product Image

This has got to be my most hyped game of the year, except for maybe Pokémon if it comes out this year. I only have like, one friend that has a Wii U, so I rarely get to play any Super Smash Bros. with anybody unless someone comes over or if I go over, but with this I can take Smash Bros. and force it upon them whether they like it or not. The reveal was honestly one of the greatest moments of my life.

Hope they add Shrek.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, I guess? Anyways, way too overrated, and it is neither legendary.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, AKA the most overhyped video game of all time

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is overhyped and overrated.

2 Mario Tennis Aces Mario Tennis Aces Product Image

Mario Tennis is finally making its Switch debut, will bring stylish motion controls with it. Switch Sports all the way! Apparently it will be the hardest Mario Tennis game ever, but will bring the first story mode to a Mario Tennis game since the 2004 title Power Tour. Aces will throw tennis flavored boss fights at you, alongside a variety of quests. It also looks fantastic. Mario in that little tennis outfit is an odd mixture of epic and cute.

This will be the first Mario Tennis game I wil get.

Matches are too long, you don't unlock ANYTHING, just way too overrated

3 Toy-Con 02: Robot Kit Toy-Con 02: Robot Kit Product Image

You can be a robotic creature, it is utterly bonkers how outstanding this little kit will be, and what is more both kits let you look at a cross section of how it all works and fits together on your Switch - as well as playing the games, of course.

4 Yoshi (2018) Yoshi (2018) Product Image

Woolly World was said to be delightful, and Nintendo keeping the trend of adorable side-scrolling games in this new Nintendo Switch title. Players are thrust into a diorama made of cardboard cutouts, and you guide our favorite Mario dinosaur through them by chucking eggs at villains and shifting the camera perspective to interact with objects in the foreground or background. It is the kind of thing you want to hug.

YES! I think this should be higher than MTA. There has been mario tennis games before, however there has NEVER been a mario/yoshi game ENTIRELY based on cardboard. They even showed one of the bosses in the trailer like they did in the MTA trailer and I can say this will definitely be my favourtie game of the year.

Yoshi's Crafted World, also it is coming out in 2019. This list means the most hyped Nintendo Switch games of 2018, which means the Switch games which are hyped this year. And this one is hyped.

It's being moved to 2019 unfortunately.

5 Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit Product Image

Nintendo has reinvented gaming again, and this time they are doing it with cardboard. The Nintendo Labo kits - known as ToyCons, get it? - let you construct cardboard peripherals for the Switch and then play games with them. This one has things like a dirt bike simulator, toy cars, and an actually playable piano.

6 Scribblenauts Showdown Scribblenauts Showdown Product Image

The Mini Games? Yeah, those sound good and all. But ever since Unlimited and Unmasked broke on me, I was not in the mood to buy them again (Unlimited goes for $70 on Play Asia), so I am REALLY looking forward to this one, as it will also have eight worlds to explore. One more thing: C H A I N S A W B E A T S M O N K E Y

7 Terraria Terraria Product Image

Terraria, a little like Minecraft (though nowhere near as much as people say), is that one game that is on every platform. And for great reason, too. Terraria is a brilliant 2 dimensional sandbox game that tasks you with surviving in a procedural generated world with nothing but three simple tools to begin with. But the more you play, the wiser you get and learn what you need to do to survive. It is addictive, and a Switch version will be epic!

Terraria is a cool game, and NOT a Minecraft ripoff.

8 Kirby: Star Allies Kirby: Star Allies Product Image

We have not gotten an actual Kirby quest on consoles since 2012, and the upcoming Kirby Star Allies aims to take the saboteur sucking and strength stealing play the series is known for and finally giving it a high def makeover. You will also be able to join forces with up to three additional robot or player controlled characters to help you solve puzzles and collect hidden goodies. Kirby has been holding down the fort on portable for the past year, so it is awesome to see him back on console in proper form.

Kirby star allies has (nearly) everything
dedede meta knight and whispy woods
a cool new villain
brings back past elements
1 new ability and a evolved version of a abaility etc
wait this got beaten by
a gorilla, a space bounty hunter, a 2D minecraft, basically rock paper scissors, carboard TWICE, a green chameleon dinosaur (Yoshi can stay at 2 but Kirby at 1) & TENNIS
well... at least its in the top 10 also when is Nintendo gonna give us new news on Yoshi 2018

Played some of the demo at Target and it was lit.

9 Super Mario Party Super Mario Party Product Image

I'm so excited for this game! It's coming in october and it takes the formula of the first Mario Party games on N64! Goodbye to that stupid car!

Not overrated

10 Donkey Kong: Jungle Freeze Donkey Kong: Jungle Freeze Product Image

Widely regarded as the best game on the Wii U, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (which I unfortunately did not get the Wii U one) is now getting a Switch release. That means Donkey Kong will soon take over your Switch, and they are bringing a new friend with them; Funky Kong as he is known, is a Switch exclusive character who is equipped with a surfboard that gives him rather rad moves. And what is more, it is all playing in multiplayer now with the new Switch exclusive multiplayer mode. You will be going bananas!

You mean Tropical Freeze

The Contenders
11 Metroid Prime 4 Metroid Prime 4 Product Image

What a time to have the Switch. While the 3DS is getting a remake of Metroid 2 this year, the Switch got confirmation that Metroid Prime will be making its grand return in the future. Nothing is known about the game other than the fact that it is happening, and it is not being made by Retro (who made the first three games in the series), but rather by a new studio. 4 right now (get it? ), sweet confirmation is all I need to get excited.

It's not coming in 2018. We didn't get any info on it ever since E3 2017.

Still no new info on it, hopefully it comes 2019.

12 Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Product Image

Originally released on the Wii U, and later on 3-D-S with a minor difference in the title, Warriors is a Dynasty Warriors fighter featuring a tonne of your favorite Nintendo characters, and now Link from Breath of the Wild. Definitive Edition is better looking than before, features all the existing DLC too and can even be played with a pal, thank you, new multiplayer feature. 2 Links is better than 1.

It's the opposite. I think almost no one think about The Legend Of Zelda these days...

13 Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu Product Image

Basically Pokemon Yellow and Pokemon Go mixed together...

14 Pokemon Let's Go Eevee Pokemon Let's Go Eevee Product Image
15 Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Product Image

It's getting ported to the Switch with Super Mario Odyssey inspired levels.

It's supposed to be even better than the Wii U version!

16 Super Mario Odyssey Super Mario Odyssey Product Image

This game made me cry, laugh, blush, and amazed!

I was shocked by these wonderful colors, characters, and romance.

It was awesome I loved it!

The ending was so sweet I cried and laughed.

The best part is that the adventure will never end!

17 Undertale Undertale Product Image
18 Detective Pikachu
19 Pikmin 4

Has it been confirmed to be a 2018 release?
