Every game in The Wholesome Direct 2022 is coming to Switch

Healthy Direct 2021

As part of IGN’s Summer Game Fest and Summer of Gaming, the Wholesome Direct took place on June 11, 2022, featuring over 100 game trailers and announcements, all themed around the trending ” healthy games”. We’ve seen games about frogs, cats, bears, witches and mail delivery – but which of these are coming to Switch, you ask?

(Plus, if you missed the Wholesome Direct, you can rewatch it here!)

Here’s a list of all the Wholesome Direct games coming to the Nintendo Switch, with short descriptions from the developers and release windows or dates, if any!

(Note: some of these games are simply advertised for “consoles”, or “planned” for consoles, or just “aiming” for consoles…but we’ve assumed this includes Switch, so be warned they might not all be for Switch!)
