There's been a raft of indies launching this week on Switch, with the likes of Away: Journey to the Unexpected and Riot: Civil Unrest joined by titles such as City of Brass and Pumped BMX Pro. Oh, and a Blazblue rerelease, of course.

Indeed, it's that time of the week where we look at what's coming out on Switch, sifting through the masses of games to find the true gems that need your attention - or your downloads, at least.

We'll cover as much as we can, but this is by no means a comprehensive list. Instead, we want to pick out games we know you'll love, or at least the ones that are big and important, alongside a few of the smaller games you may not have seen yet.

And we'll try to hit as many genres as we can, so there should be something here for everyone. But don't get mad if there's nothing you like! We are at the whims of the publishers and developers just like you.

So, grab yourself a cuppa, get your Switch, and let's dig in and see what new games you can get for yourself this week. You never know, your next favourite game of all time may be hiding amongst our list. And be sure to comment if you find something which you do decide to pick up - we'd love to hear what's taken your fancy this week.
