Nintendo is coming off the back of a pretty good year in 2023 when it comes to exclusives. We had titles early on in the year like Fire Emblem Engage followed later by game of the year contenders like The Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom and Super Mario Bros. Wonder; all titles that were well received and reviewed on Nintendo's versatile flagship console. Looking forward to 2024 we've got a decent few exclusives to come and perhaps this may even be the year we see the Nintendo Switch's successor.

After a long 18 years, Princess Peach is finally headlining her own title again with Princess Peach Showtime looking like one of the Switch highlights of 2024 as another whimsical adventure game. We're also revisiting the classic Mario vs Donkey Kong early in the year as this is receiving a Switch remaster, a nostalgic trip for many and a great new experience for those who never played the original on GameBoy. 2024 is looking a great year for those of you who enjoy the Switch remasters with titles like Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door also receiving a Switch graphical overhaul. We're also still wondering what's happening with Metroid Prime 4, Nintendo please give us an update! But don't worry there are still plenty of great Nintendo Switch games to look forward to in 2024 which we will cover in this article.

There were many mentions of the end of the Nintendo Switch coming last year with the Nintendo Switch being in its twilight years and technologically speaking is miles behind the prowess of the gaming beasts that are the Xbox Series X and PS5 however it still had a great year with some excellent titles. However 2024 does not quite have the same level of scheduled releases as there were in 2023, there are some slated for early in the year as previously mentioned but we're hoping this means 2024 is the year we get some new Nintendo hardware with some 60FPS capabilities at a decent resolution; our fingers are crossed and we are hoping to see Nintendo take some inspiration from the success of the Steam Deck which recently received an OLED model, we can't see Nintendo moving away from the versatile dock/handheld form factor which they have had so much success with.

With all that said let's get into the games releasing exclusively on Switch in 2024!

Another classic is being brought back to the forefront in 2024 with a Switch makeover for Mario Vs. Donkey Kong. Coming all the way from the GameBoy this is a huge graphical overhaul reinvigorating the old Mario and Donkey Kong rivalry.

Donkey Kong was after the latest Mini Mario toy but sadly they were all sold out, so in his desperation Donkey Kong stole them from the factory where they're made, so Mario is going to have to chase him down to recover them. There are plenty of puzzles and platforming to enjoy here and this new lick of paint is making this rendition the best way to enjoy this classic.

Another remake on the 2024 schedule is the return of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, a much beloved GameCube classic which has got fans ecstatic. Of the several classic games being brought to Switch this year Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is the one with the most buzz around it and that's for good reason. The original was brilliant, and this remake looks to be doing it justice with a huge graphical overhaul.

In this Paper Mario RPG adventure Mario and his friends must join together to discover what treasures hide behind the "Thousand Year Door". We can't wait for this one in 2024, but sadly we don't have an exact date yet just a broad 2024 release date.

If you missed Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon on 3DS this graphical overhaul could be a nice pick up in 2024, or if you're fancying a nostalgia trip this could be right up your street.

 

Metroid Prime 4

Metroid Prime 4

Release Date: TBA
Developer: Retro Studios
Publisher: Nintendo
Genre: 3D adventure
Trailer: Metroid Prime 4 Trailer

Originally announced during Nintendo’s 2017 E3 press conference with a short logo tease, Metroid Prime 4 has largely been vapourware ever since. It’s not been seen or mentioned in any worthy capacity since the year when the Nintendo Switch originally launched, but we do know that it’s being made by original developer Retro Studios who recently elected to stoke up some excitement through Metroid Prime Remastered, a remake of the original GameCube game.

Metroid Prime 4 is expected to have more of a cinematic focus compared to other games before it, as revealed in job listings and reports from industry insiders. Though very little details about Metroid Prime 4 are still known, Nintendo Switch players should expect to explore a planet’s worth of dungeons, caverns and caves while battling alien critters as main character Samus Aran reacquires her useful powers. The last time we saw a new Metroid Prime game was back on the Wii, so hopes are high that Metroid Prime 4 will take advantage of the Nintendo Switch hardware when it eventually does release.

 

 

So there you have our list of some of the much-anticipated games releasing exclusively on Nintendo Switch in 2024. We're sure more games will be released this year and more concrete release date information is available. Let us know below what you're looking forward to playing this year on Nintendo Switch and if there is any titles you think we should add to this list. This is looking like the year of the remaster as it stands with not too many new IPs.
