PAX West 2022 – Every Nintendo Switch Game At PAX

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

We’ve assembled here a list of every game at PAX West that’s coming to Nintendo Switch — although there may be more that are as-yet unannounced, so keep an eye out for potentially even more. Some of these games are out on Switch already, 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 merch on the showfloor, plus the possibilities of a discount (which may be on Switch or Steam) and/or a free demo during PAX, which runs from September 2nd to the 5th . Enjoy!
