As ever, we've gone through all of the upcoming releases, and just like last week, we've got a list of all of the upcoming Nintendo Switch games for you to look over and hopefully help you find something to pick up.
The list below shares a brief description of each upcoming release, along with a link out to where you can find more information, such as trailers and screenshots.
Last week saw a new Disney-themed Metroidvania arrive on Switch, but this week of the around 30 games landing on the eShop the highlights include Steam Deck favourite Brotato and the rather lovely looking Venba. Oh, and A Guidebook of Babel and Tiny Thor also look interesting!
