Amazon listing a ton of mystery titles for Switch

Posted on December 31, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Update: Amazon has now started to pull these listings. It could be a sign that they went up too early.

Original: A ton of new mystery listings for Switch have appeared on Amazon. We’re counting 18 titles in total on the website, most of which can be pre-ordered. Prices range from $60 all the way up to $100.

The thought here is that these games could be unveiled during an upcoming Nintendo Direct, which will almost certainly take place in January. Amazon even used the exact same image for Project Octopath Traveler a few months ago after it was fully unveiled during the September broadcast.

The common consensus is that a Nintendo Direct will be held in January. Not only does Switch’s lineup for 2018 need to be detailed, but a leak from EA indicated that a presentation will be held sometime during the month.

If you want to play it safe, you may want to pre-order the more expensive listings as they could be collector’s editions / special editions. We all know quickly these items can go sometimes – especially Nintendo-published ones. Amazon’s 20% Prime discount has also been enabled.

    well one is fire emblem one of the more expensive games might be a special edition for fire emblem and a special edition of shin megami tensei 5 79.99 might be some game+dlc pass combinations others might be ported collections

      i doubt one of the listing would be for SMT5. They just came out saying that the game is still early in development and right now they’re testing different battle systems to see what works. It is very possible to release in 2019, but realistically speaking, it’s going to be a 2020 title.

        addy you back bro i missed you

  • Bart

    Nice… But please go easy on my wallet, Nintendo… 🙂

    • Ezereal

      Nintendo needs to tell us when their next Direct happens, the suspense is killing me ^^”

      I hope it’ll be in the first half of January 🙂

      • Force

        I think there’s a good chance of that. It would most certainly help keep up the momentum.

    • Take a part time job

  • Kai Brands

    Smash Bros Pls

    • amak11

      If it’s a new Smash, that is not happening next year. If it’s just a port then it can

      • Kai Brands

        I do not care. I take both.

    • Ezereal

      You’re pretty sure to get it, I expect a port of Smash Bros Wii U + DLC + 3D modes. A release in March or April wouldn’t surprise me.

      • Smash I highly doubt on 2018

        • Ezereal

          We started to talk about a port a year ago and the MK8 port is a real success. There’s no reason we can’t get a Smash Wii U port in 2018, it seems very realistic, I’m pretty sure the game is already ready.

          • Actually no one expected MK8 deluxe on Switch as I remember, I see not reason porting more games from Wii U on the Switch after Switch cross more 10m+ units sold on Nov, Nintendo is working with third parties devs bring new and fresh tittles, as well Nimtendo is bringing new first party tittles, but you are entitled have your own opinion.

          • Ezereal

            You see no reason? The reason is very clear: MK8 DX is a huge success and many Wii U titles could have been far more successful on another hardware.
            It’s a cheap way to get profitable while giving great titles to the Switch.

            You know I’m right when you see Bayonetta 2 will be released on Switch next month.

            Other Wii U titles will come, that’s obvious.

          • Yeah still I don’t see any reason bring more port from Wii U sold 13m+ life time 5 years into Switch been a great success on 9 months and sold 10m+ so far.

            Bayo 1, 2 & 3 is third party game isn’t a first party game remember that, any third party can do whatever they want even gring old ports from other past consoles. Bayo franchise always have a great fan base maybe will sell well.

            Not against of porting game from old consoles but I want new fresh games that’s why I bought Switch at first place to play new games.

      • Roto Prime

        I am thinking the same thing, Super Smash Bros deluxe for Nintendo Switch!!!

        • Riku0493

          Why do you people keep wanting Melee on Switch!?

          • Roto Prime


        • Ezereal

          Yeah, that would be a huge success and would be the most complete Smash Bros ever, and given the Switch is just a bit more powerful than the Wii U it wouldn’t makem uch sense to develop an all-new Smash Bros.

          • Roto Prime

            I feel the same way, Smash For is perfection to me, with the epic amounts of characters…it would be really hard to get them all back!!

          • Ezereal

            Plus, I didn’t have a Wii U so I’d love to buy this version, I want to play with Cloud Strife 😮

          • Roto Prime

            Ahaha, me too, never got the DLC….want to play as Cloud <3

  • Andrew Breneman

    The 99$ ones are clearly collectors editions, let’s not lose our heads and create ridiculous rumors or anything crazy.

  • hi v3.0

    Omg this is hype!!

    • IBO

      no hype for you

      • hi v3.0

        Shush ibo

  • Snackster1001

    direct soon, watch

  • キロ


  • LB

    my bets are on either Jan 12th or Jan 19th

  • Kyoshilonehearted

    I really hope Nintendo impresses at whatever Direct they do next. They have all of this momentum, but so much to do still to make the Switch better.

    • Ezereal

      They have everything to be impressive, the element of surprise being one.

      • Kyoshilonehearted

        True. Who knows what they have up their sleeves. Probably a lot if they have sleeves for ARMS. I still need to get that game.

  • Apfel

    I feel lame, but I preordered everything above 59.99
    especially because everything ships to germany…for now…

  • Tiso Spencer

    Yeah I pre-ordered what I could, I think there was 4 that was unavailable. I think it ended up at the moment with Prime at like $920 for me.

    • Mark

      Almost a thousand bucks on Switch titles when you don’t know what they are yet?

      I mean, I know you can just easily cancel a pre-order, but still…

      • ≈ Kobob QTπ ≈ ᔦꙬᔨ

        Well, Amazon doesn’t charge you until the games release, so why not?

  • Leonel

    Can’t wait to see what titles these are 😀

  • Stuart

    Holy snap,that is a lot! No body is ready for that!

    The next january direct can’t come soon enough.

  • Jack Bankhead

    There’s a lot of these, there’s definitely a direct. I just hope we get another Bethesda port, a small indies showcase, and a better look at Pokemon, maybe some (a lot) of third party announcements.

    • Drybonekoopa85

      I would love a Fallout 4 port and a Evil Within 1 and 2 port from Bethesda.

      • Jack Bankhead

        I honestly think it is likely for a Fallout 4 port, but at the same time I think it’s a pipe dream.

    • Auragar

      We won’t see Pokemon and how can it be a better look when we’ve never seen it yet?

  • zelgadis greywords

    taking into account previous Directs my bet is that it will be the second week of january, just after the holiday season and a little before the monster hunter world release. The more probable days, in my opinion, will be between the 10th wensday and the 12 friday.

  • Roto Prime

    I knew something was up, bestbuy put up Metroid Prime 4 last night as well….

  • Radish

    Hopefully none of this gets leaked.

  • Auragar

    If anybody needed any more confirmation that a Nintendo Direct is happening in January.

  • awng782

    While the $99 games are clearly collector’s edition SKUs, that is still a decent number of supposesly unannounced games.

  • Carlos Silex

    A Way Out in Nintendo Switch WOULD BE INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GoldenTriforce

    Most of these games seem very expensive, I doubt most of them are collector’s editions. I wouldn’t be surprised if Amazon is just putting higher prices just in case.

    • Auragar

      That is definitely a possibility but I dunno why would some be the “proper” price while others aren’t?

  • Felipe M.

    Who cares about titles! Give us new Switch games!

  • Jeff Moreira

    My wishlist:
    Star Fox (port from Wii U)
    Wave Race
    1080 snowboard
    Donkey Kong
    Mortal Kombat XL
    Injustice 2
    Bioshock collection
    GTA V
    Marvel v Capcom infinite
    Tekken 7
    Tomb Raider (1&2 you know the new ones)
    Resident Evil 2 (the remake announced for ps4 and x1)
    Resident Evil 7 golden edition
    + the already confirmed Kirby, Metroid, Yoshi and Pokemon.

    • Fatih

      Plus; Pikmin 4, Super Smash Bros 5, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mario Kart 9 and 2D Mario games.

      • Auragar

        Don’t expect Smash 5, Luigi’s Mansion 3 or Mario Kart 9.

    • Justin McQuillen

      F-Zero pls

    • Auragar

      I wouldn’t expect F-Zero, Wave Race, 1080 Snowboard, or Pokemon.

    • heavenshitman1

      Seeing as we’re hitting some slightly unrealistic territory here, may I add an Eternal Darkness follow-on, Pilot Wings, Red Steel (I’ll even happily take a re-make), Switch Sports, Soul Calibur 6 annnd if I’m gonna tread into serious gaming fantasy land…
      a Zombie U sequel (Zombie Switch), all about transgender zombie apocalypse and a Horizon Zero Dawn rip off. It would be called Horizontal Zero-degree Dusk, set in a post-post-post-post apocalyptic, utopian high society, starring a highly beloved and respected eskimo in Antarctica

      • Jeff Moreira

        Ha, completely forgot Pilotwings, it would be a great surprise!
        Also a new Mario Party would be good, perfect fit for the Switch.
        Going even crazier on the wish list, a port of Batman Arkham series would be great.
        And a new Captain Commando (using a similar approach like Batman) from Capcom.
        Still missing a good racing game, but can’t think of anything.
        Ah, some Ubisoft games would be welcome too.

        • heavenshitman1

          Ubisoft will def be there, but I personally do have a real soft spot for Red Steel. I think Switches performance could fix most that games flaws, a multiplayer could work well too.
          I think Nintendo has gotta do an F-Zero fairly soon, Gamecube was its last outing. Mario Party would fit great, though after like 10 sequels of that, I wouldn’t put it on their priority list. I’d like to see Capcom up their game a tad. I got a bit off-sided (,pissed really) with them having bought SF2 Switch, then shortly after announcing an entire SF collection en route.
          That bloody well should have been their first Switch effort (even their promo trailer for the collection was ripped from the SF2 trailer).
          I expect a solid discount or I’m not buying

          • Jeff Moreira

            Red Steel would be a amazing, I liked that game a lot as well. Would love to see an Assassins Creed collection too.

            I think Nintendo did wrong with Mario Party on 3DS, that game should be on Switch but I hope they will release one on the platform.

            I got pissed with Capcom too as I also purchased SF because i like the game but also to help the sales for third party and completely agree with you this SF collection should be the first one released on the console.
            I’m sure it will come with a full price tag as it is also being released on other platforms.

  • awng782

    Do note that already announced games like Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi, Bayonetta 3, and Metroid Prime 4 already have Amazon listings, so if these 18 game listings are real, they are unannounced games/SKUs.

    • Auragar

      “if real” They are, that isn’t even a question. But apparently there are some already announced games without listings so they aren’t all unannounced games, and also some of them will just be different “editions” of games.

  • cloud36426

    Man! Nintendo wants me to be broke!

  • Reggie

    So did the list name any titles or no? I’m a bit late to this.

    • Roto Prime

      No names, just “announce at Nintendo Switch event”…

  • Tlink7

    Inb4 half of them are small-time indies

  • PachterStation

    A new Wave Race is well overdue, but Nintendo loves to dabble with franchises that the dogs are barking at with a few remakes to make up the numbers. Stunt Race FX 2?
