A 'new Switch OS' is just one of nearly 30 games coming to Nintendo's console this week

Here's a look at what games are coming to the Nintendo Switch over the next seven days.

nOS: New Operating System for Nintendo Switch

🛍 Monday, January 23 — Sunday, December 29

After last week's double serving of Persona ports and an all new Fire Emblem game, this week on the Switch is a little more muted.

That said, there's still close to 30 games coming to the hybrid and we've gone through each and every one. One game (nOS) brings an 'alternative operating system' to Nintendo's console, whereas another looks like Stardew Valley on Mars.

Below you'll find a list of them all, along with a short description of what each upcoming game is about, along with a link out to more details — including screenshots, a trailer, age ratings, and how many players each game supports, etc.

All dates are EU and US unless noted. Release data is sourced via Switch Scores
