Nintendo Switch game releases May 2021: Console Switch and Switch Online
It’s another new month of Nintendo Switch games and while we’re probably still playing the new Pokémon Snap game, that doesn’t mean we can’t devote some time to some of the new titles that are on their way to May.
It’s not just Pokémon we’re on our minds either, as Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to provide huge updates on a regular basis and Animal Crossing’s May Day events take place at the start of the month – which includes a maze. that you must try to find your way out of.
We’re also tracking the best Nintendo Switch games on the market right now if you want more choices of things to play, but for anything new in May, scroll down and see what’s coming!

What’s new with Nintendo Switch Online in May 2021?
We haven’t heard yet if there will be any new additions to Nintendo Switch Online, but we’re not holding our breath as it’s not a service that updates regularly unlike Game Pass and PS Now.
There have long been calls for the old Pokemon games to be added, just like we have the old school Mario games which are still a lot of fun to play, but there is still no sign of it happening. How are we supposed to catch them all if you don’t leave us, Nintendo?
Don’t have Nintendo Switch Online yet? Well you can take advantage of the 7-day free trial for the Nintendo Switch Online club, which is more than enough to complete a few of the classic NES and SNES titles. Remember to turn off auto-renewal if you only want it for a week.
