It’s still early in the year, and many games are still as TBC or “coming soon.” Especially when you look at the games that we assume they will release from May onwards. But what are the Nintendo Switch games to get excited about? We have a look at seven new titles.

With a while to go, it doesn’t prevent us from the hype about the Nintendo Switch games that we can get existed about this year. For the innovation, the study that has created them, or the value they have shown on other consoles. Of all the games that will come out, we have made a list with the 7 most promising, ordered by release date.

1. Super Mario 3D World and Bowser’s Fury

Release date: 12 February 2021
Genre: platforms / multiplayer mode

There can’t be a single year that Nintendo doesn’t give us a Mario game. And we appreciate it. This year we celebrate the 35th anniversary of Super Mario. Nintendo gives us the reissue of the Wii U game Super Mario 3D World. They also include an added: Bowser’s Fury.

This improved version includes local and online multiplayer. The game, even in 3D, recovers the lateral or frontal mobility that made the plumber so popular. This makes it a simpler game (in a good way), without losing the fun of a good Mario game.

Adding Bowser’s Fury is like selling us two games for the price of one. With one of the best battles of Mario against Bowser, this game promises hours and hours of fun.

2. Bravely Default II

Release date: 26 February 2020
Genre: RPG

Those of you who have tried the demo will understand the desire to play it completely. This phenomenal RPG developed by Silicon Studio will try to hook us as their previous 3DS games did.

The battles will present an even greater difficulty than in their previous games. The game uses a turn-based system based on the saga’s special mechanics: Brave and Default. You can choose a normal attack or use Brave and Default to increase your statistics for future turns.

Seth, our protagonist, along with 3 companions, will form the Heroes of Light. With the importance of the argument, in this game, we will find a lot of conversations. A J-RPG that offers a different experience with the same atmosphere as its predecessor.

3. Monster Hunter Rise

Release date 26 March 2021
Genre: RPG / Action

Capcom’s powerful ARPG saga unfolds in all its greatness with this new release. MH world seeks to beat its sales record in the West with the new ideas proposed in this Switch game.

The game preserves the saga formula that balances crafting, world exploration, and fights with monsters. Facing the mobility system. One of the hardest points when it comes to bringing together veterans and new hunters. MH Rise will try to settle on Switch all we expect and we love of MH World.

Although you’ll see recognizable elements in Monster Hunter Rise, you can already feel all the new stuff. We will have new scrolling resources that give the game a huge but classic character. Despite there is still much to see in its set of contents, what it transmits to us is positive. As a result, the game is positioning itself as the next must-see for veterans of Monster Hunter,

4. New Pokémon Snap

Release date: 30 April 2021
Genre: Simulation

Bandai Namco and Nintendo are responsible for producing this new Pokémon game. The adventure gets inspiration from the classic Pokémon Snap of the Nintendo 64. This means that it is not the continuation, but “an all-new adventure for Nintendo Switch that’s inspired by the classic Nintendo 64 game.”

This game makes you explore the Lensis region and take pictures of more than 200 Pokémon. Our goal is to investigate the Lumini phenomenon that takes place in this region. In this new adventure, we will have the help of Professor Mirror and his assistant Rita.

Nostalgia for the Nintendo 64 Snap, coupled with the best-known graphics in a Pokémon game. Combined with our camera and the immense landscapes and routes that we will take, will delight lovers of photography and Pokéfans.

5. Subnautica and Subnautica: Below Zero

Release date: TBC 2021
Genre: Survival / Adventure

Although Subnautica finally came out in 2018, it is in this year when we can have a version for the Switch. The critics on its launch were positive. This and its sequel, created by Unknown Worlds Entertainment, offer us a set aquatic survival game.

A calm survival, but no less dangerous for that. Underwater environments immerse us in a peaceful environment, but with the tension of not knowing what is in the depths of the ocean.

To that, we add the “expansion” Below Zero. This transports us to a new frozen planet, with new biomes, monsters, vehicles, and an outstanding plot for an indie game. If the game already hooked on desktop consoles, now offering us a portable option is a wise decision on the part of the studio.

6. Bayonetta 3

Release date TBC 2021
Genre: Hack-n-slash

Developed by Platinum Games and published by Sega, it’s the third installment in the popular beat’em up action saga starring the witch.

Tre trailer appeared at The Game Awards 2017. It was announced that it would be one of the games exclusive for Nintendo Switch.

Now it’s still in development, but in the trailer, we can see bullets, magic, and what could expect of our favorite witch.

Platinum Games CEO Hideki Kamiya suggests there is progress, but “let’s forget about Bayonetta for a while.” He ensures that when something finally comes up, it will become a bigger surprise. Until then, we can only wait for more news.

7. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

Release date: TBC 2021
Genre: RPG

The sequel to the one considered by many the best Nintendo Switch game is in development. The little that we can know for now has been thanks to the E3 trailer. This trailer shows a much darker style than the first game, even competing with Majora’s Mask.

In it, you can see that Link and Zelda find a corpse under Hylure Castle (that looks quite like Ganondorf). It is also seen that a presence brings him back to life and affects Link. That gives rise to many rumours that in this sequel we will control Zelda.

Everything said above is speculation that people said because of the trailer. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for Nintendo to announce something about it.

Some Switch games will arrive sooner than others, but if it weren’t for the hype that their sale gives us, we would not enjoy them so much. So the only thing we have left is to wait and prepare the Nintendo Switch for when the time comes to enjoy it.

And that’s our list of seven Nintendo Switch games to be excited about. Do you agree or disagree with our list? Which game are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below.

With the official tagline for the release of Hitman 3 being ” A dramatic conclusion to the world of assignation trilogy” there are high expectations of the game.

But with both previous Hitman games being the quality and experience they are, there’s little doubt that the third game will be anything less than an amazing and surreal escapade.

This multiplatform game incorporates all the best locations and characters from the previous two games (as long as you already own them). As well as exotic new locations from around the world.

With the ability to play with VR headsets, this advanced version of the Hitman trilogy has the prospective to be the best of the three. With IO interactive releasing a limited description of the plotline, there is lots to hope for with this stealth game launched in late January 2021.

The multiplatform game allows for free exploration of the map, challenging combat situations with various villains and an intertwining plotline. With the developer being that of “Get even” and “NecroVisioN” Farm 51 is known for the enticing, sombre visual graphics that enhance gameplay.

Despite sounding like a game set in ancient times with cults, Chorus focuses on a futuristic world with AI technology, space battles and a thrilling next-level plotline. aiming to send this style of game into the future, Chorus is rumoured to experiment with the powers of mental abilities as well as physical skills.

But, graphics should be better than ever. With improved illustrations on global illumination, ambient occlusion and shadowing. All for better atmospheric quality and advancement in craftsmanship of lighting, weaponry and adjustments to terrain visibility.
