The storied Fire Emblem series will be making its Switch debut with Fire Emblem: Three Houses, delivering more tactical, turn-based RPG battles and plenty of character-developing dialogue.

The Mario Party series will debut on Nintendo Switch later this year with Super Mario Party.

Eight-player battles are back too, plus a range of classic and new stages going from Princess Peach's Castle from the original N64 game to Moray Towers from Splatoon and Great Plateau Tower from Zelda: Breath Of The Wild.
