Nintendo Switch Releases 22 Games This Week, Biggest Week Since Launch

The Nintendo Switch has been going strong week after week since its launch in March earlier this year, and this week is the biggest one yet in the number of releases. 22 brand new games release both physically and digitally on the system in-stores and through the Nintendo eShop, the most notable of which is WWE 2K18 Switch.

Previously, the week that held the record for most releases was the week of September 24th that had 18 games come out. For comparison purposes, the Nintendo Switch launch week had only 10 games released. ResetEra forum member chronomac has created a nifty graph that charts all 41 weeks that the system has been on the market, which you can check out here.
