Earlier this month, Nintendo announced that it is going to make a smaller and cheaper version of its Nintendo Switch gaming console to boost the sales. Now the company has made headlines again as it has announced what it has up its sleeve for its Nintendo Switch platform this year.
In its Direct video promo, the company announced that it will be bringing many classic old titles as well as newer titles for Switch. The titles vary from Super Mario Maker 2 to The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening which was a Game Boy classic. Link’s Awakening will basically be a remake of the old game with better graphics, better animation, revamped music, however, it will have the same story and will come with a bucketful of nostalgia. The game was released way back in 1993 for Game Boy and it became an all-time classic.
Some other games which were announced earlier were:
Astral Chain, a new action game for Switch where players can control two fighters at the same time. A multi-player version of Tetris, the Tetris 99, which is more or less a Tetris battle royale. The Tetris 99 can be played together with 99 other players and they can simultaneously play the competitive game of block dropping and gaining points.
Oninaki, an action RPG game was also announced, and it comes from the Back-to-Basics studio, which is the same studio that made games like I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear.
Lovers of the JRPG can rejoice as the Switch is also getting Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The company has already introduced the main characters, so fans already know what to look forward to.
Rune Factory 4 Special has also been announced for the platform. The original game was an RPG with a huge fan base, and with the special version, the company would want to get a similar kind of response from fans. The next series in the line-up, Rune Factory 5, is currently in development and will be available on Switch later.
Final Fantasy VII will also be coming to Switch by the end of March. On the other hand, the Final Fantasy IX is currently available on the platform.
Another big game that will be making their way to the Switch is Dragon Quest 11 S, however, it will be available on Switch later this year. This game is the enhanced version of the original hit. Dragon Quest Builders 2 is also coming to the platform in July, and as the name suggests, the game is also from the same series.
Apart from the graphics heavy titles Nintendo also announced simple side-scrolling games as well. Some of them are:
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which is like the Castlevania series. The game was announced by Nintendo with a teaser. Another such game is Yoshi’s Crafted World which will be releasing for Switch on March 29. We should mention that its demo is already available online and players can download it to give it a try before the actual game comes out.
Another side-scroller is a puzzle-based game called the BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL!, which promises some high-quality puzzle solving with friends as it will be a multiplayer game. The game is coming out in April. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, an action puzzle game for Switch is also getting an update. With this update, the game will get an option to played with multiple players.
The Marvel Ultimate Alliance will also be coming out during the summer. The game features co-op battles with characters from the Marvel universe like Ironman, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Spiderman, Captain Marvel and others.
Disney Tsum Tsum Festival, Deltarune!, Daemon X Machina are some of the other titles which will be coming for Nintendo Switch this year.
With the wild plethora of games to choose from, both old and new, players will have a hard time keeping their hands off of their Switch. There is a little something for everyone so the choices of the games won’t be limited.
