Witcher 3, Alien: Isolation, Resident Evil 5/6, and More Ports Coming to Nintendo Switch

During their E3 presentation, Nintendo revealed a plethora of third-party games are getting ported to the Nintendo Switch so you can play them on the go. 

I love my Nintendo Switch. AAA games that were too long or intricate for me to be able to play on my PlayStation 4 (it’s tough with four kids in the house) suddenly become viable in the Switch format with its on-the-go nature. As such, while I’m excited by the new Nintendo games they’ve revealed, I’m REALLY stoked for the third-party ports coming to the system.

During their E3 showcase they announced several titles are getting Switch versions. These include the long-rumored Witcher 3 (which will include the expansion, Hearts of Stone & Blood and Wine), Resident Evil 5 and 6 (both arriving this Fall), and the terrifying Alien Isolation (also Fall 2019). Those are awesome, but just the tip of the iceberg:

Dead by Daylight (September 24th)
Stranger Things 3: The Game (July 4th)
Spyro Reignited Trilogy (September 3rd)
The Sinking City (Fall)
Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles (Winter)
Wolfenstein: Youngblood (July 26th)
DOOM Eternal (sometime soon)
Dauntless (Fall)

While we knew about the Dragon Age XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age port, the Nintendo Direct gave JRPG fans a release date to look forward to: September 27th. I’m beyond excited to see all of these coming to the Switch, on top of the just announced Ni no Kuni Remaster, and I can’t wait to get my hands on them. Which of these ports are you looking forward to playing most?
