List Rules Vote up the Switch's finest RPGs.

With all the great Nintendo Switch RPGs that are slated to come out in the next two years, we wanted to get an early start on ranking the best and most exciting games. Which role-playing games for Switch are you most looking forward to? Nintendo fans were ecstatic to learn that Xenoblade Chronicles 2 was being released in 2017, but there are so many more great titles on the horizon than just that.

I Am Setsuna is a launch title that Nintendo fans will love if they haven't gotten a chance to play it yet. There are multiple Dragon Quest games coming out this year or next, and even Skyrim is getting the Switch treatment in Q3 of 2017. Will Nintendo Switch have the best RPGs out of the current gen consoles? Right now it's looking like a strong contender.

Vote up the RPGs for Nintendo Switch you love the most or are most looking forward to playing. Some of the titles below don't have names yet, but are definitely being developed for the console.
