PAX West 2022 – All Nintendo Switch games at PAX

PAX West, a gigantic gaming festival in Seattle, is happening this weekend – and if you’re going, you might be wondering what’s on offer. Being a Nintendo-focused website, we’re very interested in what’s going to be there for Switch, especially after the rather disappointing Nintendo-less Gamescom showfloor.

We’ve put together a list of all the PAX West games coming to Nintendo Switch here – though there may be more that aren’t announced yet, so keep an eye out for potentially even more. Some of these games are already available on Switch, but are at PAX to show off updates, DLC, or other new content.

We’ve also noted if there will be any exclusive content or merchandise on the showfloor, as well as the possibilities of a discount (which can be on Switch or Steam) and/or a free demo during PAX, which runs from 2 to September 5. . Enjoy!
