The first two months of the year are over, which can only mean one thing at LadiesGamers it’s time to take a look at the upcoming games on our favourite handheld for March, on the Nintendo Switch.
Mind you, not all games to be released are on the list here. Alternatively, you will see games that the big gaming sites don’t mention. These are the games that we are taking notice of, and if given half a chance, you can expect reviews for many of them! It should be noted that unless we have some personal experience with the game mentioned, there’s a link to the descriptions on the Nintendo website.
