Top 10 Most Anticipated Upcoming Video Games For Nintendo Switch
Let’s be honest, as good as the Wii U was, it was a bit of a failure. It brought some nice ideas to the table, but the mixture of a poor marketing campaign and a lack of big game releases never gave it the boost that it needed to really make a lasting impression.
10. 1-2 Switch
Nintendo generally always release a collection of mini-games with a brand new console, and the launch of the Switch is no different. Whilst it might be a bit of a tech demo, 1-2 Switch does look like an awful lot of fun.
The whole premise of the game seems a little odd at first, a game that encourages you to look away from the screen and at the other player. Actual human interaction might seem a little wild, but this really could be the perfect ice breaker at parties or other social gatherings.
It’s a collection of little games that make use of a single Joy Con controller. The trailer reveals gun-slinging, spell-flinging, sword fighting and more. The game also seems set to make use of the new HD Rumble feature. Exactly how isn’t entirely clear, but it’s pretty easy to take a few guesses based on each of the mini-games included.
9. Super Bomberman R
Bomberman is an absolute classic. Forget about that weird, futuristic instalment on the Xbox 360, Super Bomberman R is going to be vintage Bomberman at its finest.
There’s of course going to be the standard multiplayer mode, running around the playing field collecting power-ups and setting traps for you opponents, all whilst dodging enemy fire.
Each of the characters have their own distinct animations and personalities, and you’re seemingly going to be able to customise each of them with unlockable cosmetic items. There’s even going to be a story mode, if you can believe it, with narrated cutscenes, and you can play it alone or with a friend. It’s not necessarily the main reason to play Bomberman in the first place, but it’s certainly another reason to be excited for it.
8. Shin Megami Tensei
If you’re looking for a game that’s value for money, this is going to be the one. A cinema trip could easily cost you £20, so why pay that when you could get a significantly longer experience, with a story which will undoubtedly be just as enthralling?
Shin Megami Tensei games are known for their rich cast of characters and lovably hate-able rogues’ gallery of demons and creatures to fend off. There’s not too much known about this game yet, but that’s one of the reasons it’s so exciting.
The title is still fairly early on in development, but we do know that it will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, so we can expect some pretty stellar visuals, only further enhancing Atlus’ unique brand of art design. This looks to be the next big title after Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 5, set for release in a couple of months.
Whilst SMT for Switch won’t be releasing quite as soon, it’s a safe bet to say that we’ll hear much more about it at the Tokyo Game Show later this year.
