It’s possible some of these Nintendo Switch titles won’t see a western release – Dragon Quest X and Shin Megami Tensei being the biggest examples of the bunch. I suspect a game titled Sunu Ikkibu: Din Nahu will probably be skipping a western release. But with the Nintendo Switch ditching the region-locking that previous Nintendo platforms stuck with, those willing to work through some language barriers can still enjoy these Nintendo Switch titles. All of these dates are subject to change, and shouldn’t be taken as definite. Regardless, there are already a lot of great titles announced for Nintendo’s new platform. We look forward to seeing what titles are announced in the future, and hope that Nintendo can keep the strong support for their platform going through the end of its lifespan.
