    Top Ten Most Anticipated Switch Games of 2019

    With so many games of different genres that have come out so far, the year 2019 is truly a blessed one for video gamers. There’s the return of three highly acclaimed franchises like Ace Combat, Kingdom Hearts, and Devil May Cry. We’ve seen almost all of our favourite Japanese superheroes gathered in one single game in Bandai’s Jump Force. We’ve shot everything that can be shot, be they the Aliens in Anthem, Humans in Division 2, or Zombies in World War Z and Days Gone. Some of you have probably pulled out a spine or two in Mortal Kombat 11. Some of you probably still stuck in Sekiro Shadows Die Twice.

    What a good year indeed for those who game on a PlayStation 4, Xbox, and PC. And since none of those games I mentioned are coming to the Switch, It sucks to be us, the Switch gamers, they said. But helllllll nooooo I say. We are perfectly capable of having fun on our Switch too this year! We’ve seen the launch of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes and there’s more coming!

    With that being said, here are the top ten games that I have set my eyes on and for good reasons!
