The last Nintendo Direct brought with it a ton of news on upcoming Switch and 3DS games, as well as accessories, set to release in 2017 — so much news that it might be hard to keep track of! Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a handy list of all the pending titles worth your time, as well as release dates and rundowns of what to expect from each. Check out the galleries below for all the details.

That’s a ton of games, toys, and accessories coming out over the next eight months. Granted, some titles will likely get pushed back (Xenoblade 2, anyone?), but most everything listed here should be arriving before the ball drops in Times Square this December. It’s a very good time to be a Nintendo system owner!
