As the release of Nintendo Switch OLED is on the horizon, gamers are excited to learn whether they’ll be able to play Nintendo DS games on the handheld device. Those who own the current version of Switch also have the same question. Rumors suggest that there is good a chance that Nintendo Switch online will see some older games, but it’s hard to tell whether they’ll be Nintendo DS games, Nintendo Game Boy Advance games, Nintendo 64 games, or Gamecube/Wii games.

3 Best upcoming games for Nintendo Switch

WarioWare: Get It Together!

Despite Wario being a playable character in Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 way back in the 90s, the WarioWare franchise came into being in 2003. And WarioWare: Get It Together! is the ninth game in the franchise. The series mostly comprises games that let players play as Wario, and this time players will get to assume control of Wario in a new and exciting minigame. The game releases next month, and fans of the franchise seem stoked.

Metroid Dread

The hype behind this game is extraordinary. And that is not very surprising since the Metroid games have been around for a long, long time. But, over the years, the game has changed a lot, but Metroid Dread will be a 2D game. This means that Metroid Dread is the first 2D Metroid game since Metroid Fusion was released back in 2002. The franchise is one of the most revered in Nintendo’s collection, and by the looks of things, Metroid Dread is all set to be a huge success when it comes out in October.
