We know: 2020 is an impressive year, and many undesirable things have happened. As far as the gaming industry is concerned, due to well-known reasons, everyone is forced to work remotely, which greatly affects the development efficiency. Many products have been postponed. For example, the expected "Cyberpunk 2077" was postponed three times. Similarly, Nintendo's product planning has also been affected. Although "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" in the first half of the year and the recently launched "Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity" have achieved good results, it cannot be denied that Nintendo's product line is not rich enough in 2020. So, the games that have not had time to launch this year are naturally scheduled for next year!
The outside world generally believes that 2021 will be the strongest year of the Switch product lineup since its release. So, in 2021, what masterpieces will be expected on Nintendo Switch?
Super Mario 3D World
"Super Mario 3D World" is an ACT game developed by Nintendo, which landed on the Wii platform in 2013. At the Mario 35th anniversary face-to-face meeting held earlier, Nintendo announced the porting news of the game, which will land on the Switch platform on February 12, 2021, and supplement the original with new content. In addition, since "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" is already a work three years ago, the updated "Mario Kart 9" is also a very much anticipated Mario work.
Pokémon Diamond and Pearl
Pokémon recently announced that it will launch the 25th anniversary system celebration of "Pokémon" in 2021. Although the official has not announced the details, there are reports that: the official may launch a new game in the style of "the legend" or a re-enactment version of the game. The most popular one is the "Pokémon Diamond and Pearl". The possibility of re-engraving the game is relatively large. Based on past experience, this sequel should wait until the end of 2022.
Zelda Breath of the Wild 2
2021 is also the 35th anniversary of the "The Legend of Zelda" series, so there is no reason not to launch a new game! The one I most look forward to is "Zelda Breath of the Wild 2." The famous foreign person "Sabi" once pointed out on social networking sites that "Zelda Breath of the Wild 2" was originally planned to be launched in 2020! At present, it is very natural for the game to be postponed to next year! Of course, there are also reports that "The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword" will also launch a remake. Whether it is a remake of "Skyward Sword" or "Zelda Breath of the Wild 2," fans of "The Legend of Zelda" will definitely have a new game to play next year!
Metroid Prime 4
"Metroid Prime 4" is a Nintendo SWITCH exclusive game published by Nintendo Games. Kensuke Tanabe and Retro Studios, the developer of the "Metroid Prime" series, developed it. At the beginning of last year, the official announced that the game under development was not as good as expected and decided to overturn it. I believe that three years of redevelopment time should be enough?
Monster Hunter Rise
Capcom's "Monster Hunter Rise" will be officially launched on the Switch platform on March 26, 2021. Monster Hunter Rise officially revealed more game details, including a detailed introduction to this game specifically for Switch. Switch players should no longer have to envy PS4 players, PC players have "Monster Hunter: World" to play. Of course, "Monster Hunter Stories 2" will also land on Switch, but personally look forward to "Monster Hunter Rise" even more.
Shin Megami Tensei V
Atlus uses the UE4 engine for the first time to create "Shin Megami Tensei V" on the Switch platform, which will be launched in 2021! This is the sequel to Nintendo 3DS "Shin Megami Tensei IV FINAL" on February 10, 2016. If you want to play authentic JRPG, you must not miss this game!
"Bayonetta 3", like the aforementioned "Metroid Prime 4", has been postponed. At the beginning of the year, Hideki Kamiya, the producer of Platinum Studio, personally gave fans reassurance on his personal social accounts. Then players should have a chance to play "Bayonetta 3" next year!
The above seven games are switch games that I am looking forward to very much. In addition, here is an important piece of information: the brand new theme park "Super Nintendo World" in Universal Studios Osaka, Japan will officially open on February 4, 2021! In addition, the outside world has been rumored that the second generation of Switch will be launched next year, and there are many big moves for Nintendo next year!
