If you’re like me, you’re probably deep in Pokemon Legends Arceus, the latest in the Pokemon franchise. February is a little quiet for the Nintendo Switch in terms of exclusives (until Kirby and the Forgotten Land in March), but there are still plenty of games coming to the console in February 2022.

As per usual, there are tons of games set to release for Nintendo Switch, a nice assortment of high-profile and indie titles. Below are some of the bigger named games you can look forward to playing in February.

  • Life is Strange: Remastered Collection – February 1 (Delayed)
  • Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishment – February 3
  • Maglam Lord – February 4
  • OlliOlli World – February 8
  • Kingdom Hearts (the entire Saga) – February 10
  • Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires – February 15
  • Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection – February 17
  • Monark – February 22
  • Sol Cresta – February 22
  • Chaos;Child – February 24
  • Chaos;Head Noah – February 24
  • Crystar – February 24
  • Atelier Sophie 2: The Alcehmist of the Mysterious Dream – February 25

February feels a lot of like the delivery of years-old Christmas gifts late. On February 1, we can return to Arcadia Bay with Life is Strange Remastered Collection, which includes Life is Strange Remastered and its prequel Life is Strange: Before the Storm Remastered. Both games have had their visuals and animations remastered for the newer generation of consoles.

Correction: The Nintendo Switch version of Life is Strange Remastered Collection has been delayed and is expected to release later this year. Here’s the tweet:

On February 10, another franchise will be making its Nintendo Switch debut — Kingdom Hearts. The entire Dark Seeker Saga will be available to play on Nintendo Switch via the cloud, arriving on the console as the previously released bundles. If you haven’t played Kingdom Hearts and want to in its entirety, your best option is the Kingdom Hearts Masterpiece, which features all three game bundles (11 total experiences).

Similarly, Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection will be coming to the Switch on February 17. This entire collection features all of the adventures of Master Assassin, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, from Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations, DLC included.
