It’s been a pretty solid start to the year for the Nintendo Switch with releases like Pokemon Legends Arceus and, most recently, Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Triangle Strategy. And although The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 has been delayed, there are still plenty of games on the horizon to get excited about. Speaking of new games, let’s dive into the upcoming Nintendo Switch releases for April 2022.

Yes, for the very first time, MLB The Show will debut on the Nintendo Switch. I’m not going to lie, the game doesn’t look great on Switch but it is baseball on Switch after all. If you don’t mind subpar graphics and some potential frame rate issues, then MLB The Show 22 is coming April 5th.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is another big release this month and what more can I say about this one that I haven’t already covered in the PlayStation and Xbox versions. This game looks amazing, especially if you like Star Wars and LEGO.
We’re also getting some long-awaited gems this month, including 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. In our review of this game, which we rated 9/10, we praised it for its brilliant story and excellent combat mechanics.
And then there’s Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. It is an improved remastering of the Wii version of the popular action-adventure.
Closing out the month is Nintendo Switch Sports. Who doesn’t love the Wii Sports series of games? Get your competitive juices moving and compete in soccer, volleyball, bowling, tennis, badminton and chambara from the comfort of your living room using the motion controls on your Joy-Con.
