Another year has almost gone by, and at time of writing, there’s still no sign of a potential Nintendo Switch successor.
The console is still going strong, and Nintendo probably doesn’t want to rock the boat; the sales figures for the Switch are phenomenal, and a successor could detract from that.
Still, it is fair to say that when the Switch becomes the topic of conversation now, many people want to know when a new machine might be on the way, so hopefully, Nintendo announces something soon.
In the meantime, though, the Switch is still riding high, and there are a good few games on the way for the console this holiday season. Let’s take a look at the best Nintendo Switch games for November 2023.
Thirsty Suitors (November 2nd)
This rather promising-looking genre hybrid lands on the Switch in early November, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it, because it looks like a truly exhilarating experience.
Part skateboarding sports sim, part narrative RPG, Thirsty Suitors sees you playing as Jala, a woman who must juggle her family relationships and her romantic entanglements.
Battles with her exes take place in turn-based combat arenas that hark back to Scott Pilgrim, while exploration and cooking sequences immerse you further into Jala’s life in fun, over-the-top ways.
Fashion Dreamer (November 3rd)
Have you ever, ahem, “dreamed” of having your very own fashion empire? Fashion Dreamer will help you turn that dream into a reality when it hits Nintendo Switch on November 3rd.
In Fashion Dreamer, you can design and create your own outfits and accessories, mixing and matching them as you see fit and trying to attract fashion fans with your creations.
Online play will also let you try out your designs on players around the world, so you can join the Fashion Dreamer community and kickstart your burgeoning fashionista career.
WarioWare: Move It! (November 3rd)
The WarioWare franchise is consistently underrated by gamers and non-gamers alike; it always offers a hugely fun collection of frantic minigames to enjoy, and should be much more of a party staple than it is.
The latest game, Move It!, is a collection of movement-based microgames that will challenge your physical fitness, reflexes, and sense of timing. In other words, it’s a pretty typical WarioWare! game.
This one supports up to four players, so make sure to grab some friends or family members to enjoy the hilarious fun, and who knows – you might even up your fitness into the bargain!
Football Manager 2024 (November 6th)
Much like Football Manager 2023, the latest instalment of the Football Manager franchise is hitting Switch, although the Switch version shares its DNA with the mobile edition rather than the console or PC versions.
Still, you’re getting tons of stat-heavy, satisfying management gameplay in Football Manager 2024 on Switch, allowing you to lose yourself in the management of a (hopefully successful!) football team.
Recruit new players, raise a generation of young stars, and deal with the ins and outs of management life when Football Manager 2024 lands on Switch on November 6th.
Hogwarts Legacy (November 14th)
It will be interesting to see how the Switch handles Hogwarts Legacy when Warner Bros’ magical action RPG hits the console on November 14th.
Famously, Hogwarts Legacy is a very beautiful game on PC and current-gen consoles, and although the Switch has demonstrated its ability to deliver “wonder ports” in the past, Hogwarts Legacy could test its abilities to their limit.
Assuming all goes well with the Switch port, Hogwarts Legacy will let you explore Hogwarts’ rich history as you create a custom student and take them through their very own academic life at the world’s most famous wizarding school.
Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections (November 17th)
November 17th is going to be a very busy day indeed for Switch fans, especially if you happen to like Naruto as well. Here’s the first of the three exciting games hitting the console on that date.
Promising the largest roster of Naruto and Boruto characters yet seen in a Naruto game, Connections tells the story of Naruto and Sasuke’s rivalry, “recut and combined into one game”.
Essentially, this is a playable version of the Naruto anime, complete with high-octane, fast-paced combat sequences that promise to do justice to the manga and its adaptations.
Persona 5 Tactica (November 17th)
The Switch has no shortage of great tactical RPGs, with the likes of XCOM 2, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, and Into the Breach providing hundreds of cumulative hours of strategic fun.
In November, Atlus throws its hat into that ring with Persona 5 Tactica, a spinoff of Persona 5 that sees Joker and the Phantom Thieves mysteriously transported to a realm ruled over by an oppressive force known as the Legionnaires.
Joker and his friends must engage in turn-based battles to decide the fate of this realm, leading a revolution that consists of new faces and old favourites alike. This one promises to be essential for Persona fans.
Super Mario RPG (November 17th)
They said it would never happen, and yet here we are – Nintendo has officially announced a Super Mario RPG remake! We’re just as surprised as you are, we promise.
Super Mario RPG is the progenitor of the Paper Mario franchise, and it follows Mario as he attempts to put a stop to the machinations of the dastardly Smithy Gang.
Together with a cast of unlikely allies – including erstwhile number one enemy Bowser – Mario must traverse the Mushroom Kingdom, taking part in classic turn-based RPG battles and meeting a cast of zany, hilarious characters.
