The Super Rare Games 2021 releases are shaping up to be pretty nice — five new Nintendo Switch releases have been revealed for 2021, and we'll be finding out more about one of them pretty darn soon.

Super Rare Games is a physical game publisher with a somewhat special mission — it puts out physical editions of games that have already been launched as digital products. It typically announces new releases one or two at a time, but it broke with tradition today by announcing five games in one go. Let's check 'em out!

What Are the Super Rare Games 2021 Releases?

A total of five Super Rare Games 2021 releases have been announced for Nintendo Switch and there's a pretty good mix of titles in the bunch. Here's what's on the way for this year:


Abzu is a game from the art director of Journey and Flower, and that alone should perk your ears up. This beautiful game is all about exploring a fantastical underwater world — a colorful dream that gives gamers a relaxing experience under the sea.

Deponia Collection

The Deponia adventure games are filled with colorful charm. Set on the titular trash-planet Deponia, our hero Rufus aims to escape this interstellar garbage dump and make a better life for himself. Getting that done, however, isn't exactly going to be easy.


Inmost is a game that does a lot with a little. This pixel puzzle platformer looks deceptively simple, but the people at Hidden Layer Games have managed to craft a downright cinematic experience. You'll have a mysterious labyrinth to explore with three playable characters in an unexpectedly dark story.

Super Crush KO

Games don't have to be terribly complex to be fun, and Super Crush KO is all about that beautiful simplicity. Your kitten has been kidnapped, there are evil robots everywhere, and you have a really powerful gun — you do the math.

Vigil: The Longest Night

If you like Castlevania games, you're definitely going to want to check out Vigil: The Longest Night. Leila is the last member of The Vigil, an order that protects the world against dark forces. Evil is getting ever closer to her home and it's up to her to stop it!

When Are These Super Rare Games Releasing?

The good news is that all of these pretty great Super Rare Games 2021 releases are coming to the Switch this year. The bad news, however, is that we don't really know when they're going to be coming out. All of these games are arriving "later in 2021" according to today's announcement.

That said, we will be finding out more information about Abzu next week; details on the other four titles will be revealed later this year. For now, you can pop on over to Super Rare Games and check out the Nintendo Switch ports it has available right now, including the newest release of Unrailed.
