Two Nintendo Switch Games Launch This Week

The Nintendo Switch games catalog grows by to new games this week.

Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to two new game releases in the United States this week. Disgaea 5 Complete will be released on Tuesday, May 23. A demo has been released on the eShop last week.

Disgaea 5 Complete is a strategy RPG that offers hundreds of hours of over-the-top, award-winning gameplay, and marks the first time the core game is available on-the-go. The game includes all 8 bonus scenarios, 4 fan-favorite characters, and 3 character classes that were originally DLC in the PlayStation 4 release of Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance.

Disgaea 5 Complete is on sale for $47.99 (20% off) for Prime members on amazon.com.

The second Nintendo Switch game to be released this week is Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The newest iteration of SFII in nearly 10 years, Ultra Street Fighter II features all of the classic characters, a host of new single player and multiplayer features, as well as two new fighters: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken! Nintendo Switch TV, Tabletop and Handheld modes allow you to play Ultra Street Fighter II at home or on-the-go.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers will be released on Friday, May 26. This Switch game is on sale for $31.99 for Prime members on amazon.com. The regular price is $39.99.

The big upcoming Switch games are Arms on June 16 and Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers pre-order discounts on both of the titles for Prime members to the tune of 20%.

The newest Nintendo Switch game rumor gamers are excited about this week is Call of Duty: WWII for the Nintendo Switch.

GameStop offers two new Nintendo Switch bundles that are much lower priced than the bundles offered in the past weeks. An online Nintendo Switch sale that we know is coming up this week is hosted by Walmart. Walmart is expected to sell the Nintendo Switch again online at 5pm ET on Friday. Shoppers can get notified when the sale begins with The Tracker app.

The Nintendo Switch reseller markups keep steady and range today between $91 to $100 for the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and $99 to $130 for the Nintendo Switch with Neon Joy-Con on amazon.com. Getting a bundle from an official store makes sense as long as customers wanted to by the bundle games anyway.

Our new online inventory tracker app The Tracker will send a notification when the Nintendo Switch is spotted in stock at major online retailers including Amazon.com.

Nintendo is ramping up the production for the Nintendo Switch, but has not disclosed what the current production capacity per month is. The only number the company made official is the production volume over the next 12 months. 10 million Switch consoles are planned to enter retail channels until end of April 2018. The demand for the Nintendo Switch will spike during the Holiday Shopping season 2017. Nintendo will set aside a large part of the Switch production during the next months for November and December. This stock piling will keep the Nintendo Switch in short supply during the next 5 months.

As Nintendo coordinated new Switch console shipment with the launch of Mario Kart 8, we expect the company to do the same for the next major Switch game launches. The big upcoming Switch games are Arms on June 16 and Splatoon 2 on July 21. Amazon offers pre-order discounts on both of the titles for Prime members to the tune of 20%.

There are also several new accessories coming on the market from Nintendo in the next weeks. See the full list of new Nintendo Switch accessories.
