There will be no earthquake during the Nintendo Direct last night, but that will probably be enough to meet the expectations of many fans of the small hybrid console. One of the main announcements was the Switch confirmation of the JRPG in open-world Xenoblade Chronicles 3 from the Monolith Software studio, which will be available on Nintendo Switch consoles next September. The trailer does not reveal much, but still confirms a rather inspired DA.
No Man’s Sky on Switch? Yes, it is possible, because nothing is impossible for Hello Games
We will pass a little more quickly on the announcement of a new Musô, Fire Emblem Warriors Three Hopeswell in the vein of the great “tatanages” mass of the Dynasty Warriors license. We are very far from the Fire emblem way tactical rpg. Good surprise this time, the announcement of No Man’s Sky on Switch for summer 2022! Finally, it looks like the Switch has enough under the hood to accommodate the huge open-world space from the Hello Games studio. Mario Strikers Battle League Football, a rather delirious and arcade sports game, will be available on June 10, 2022. Another unexpected novelty with Kirby and the Forgotten World, a platformer in which Kirby will have great transforming talents and will even be able to swallow decorative elements. As to free-to-play multiplayer disney speedstorm developed by French Gameloftwe really do not know what to think of this (under) Mario Kart-like with the characters of the Disney franchises… On the other hand, Nintendo Switch Sports promises to be the worthy heir to Wii Sports, with Tennis, Bowling, Football, Badminton, Volleyball and even… Chambara (combat between two participants with equal or different weapons).
For the rest, it was the ball of announcements of adaptations, remakes… and DLCs. Thus, were we entitled to announcements of the Horde mode in cooperative for Splatoon 3 (players will have to withstand increasingly powerful waves of enemies) and new “vintage” DLC for Mario Kart 8 filled with content taken from “old” MKs. The Cuphead The Delicious Last Course DLC finally has a date set for June 30th. Star Wars The Force Unleashed will be ported to Switch by Aspyr on April 20, 2022 and you will only have to wait until February 17 to play Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection (DLC included). In terms of remakes, we will have Square Enix doing well with the announcements of Front Mission 1st Remake, Chrono Cross The Radical Dreamers Edition, Kingdom Hearts Integrum Masterpiece for Cloud (the streaming trilogy), and finally the RPG Live A Live, which still dates from the Super Famicom, and which even has a release date, set for July 22, 2022.
So many classified ads, but unfortunately nothing on Bayonetta 3 to Metroid Prime 4 or the highly anticipated second installment of Zelda Breath of the Wild, which is still a shame…
