Nintendo Switch holiday games are often a key part of the Japanese developer’s rollout of hits. In the console’s release year of 2017, we saw the instant classic Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate the year after, and of course the litany of Pokémon games we always get.
So, what is the Nintendo Switch holiday game for 2023? Well, we obviously have no idea yet, with some big games already spoken for, with Fire Emblem Engage almost out and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom coming in May. But some folks on Reddit have been sharing their hopes and dreams.
Most are hoping for something good, of course. A 3D Donkey Kong game? Possibly. Metroid Prime 4? That’s long overdue. So is a Pikmin 4 release date, though all we have for now is the 2023 window. It’s not set in stone, but Nintendo sure does like having a holiday hit, so it’s not an impossibility.
