The Best Summer Game Fest 2024 Announcements for Nintendo Switch

Over the last few days, there have been loads of events in the world of gaming across livestreams, in-person showcases, and more. I’ve put together a list of my favorite Summer Game Fest 2024 announcements for Nintendo Switch covering games revealed across all the events so far. There might be some overlap with the Steam Deck feature I do since a lot of games are announced for multiple platforms, but I will be covering different games across both platforms. If announcements involve a single publisher, I’ve clubbed them together as well so I can feature a few more. Cheating? Sure. This list is in no particular order.
