Mario Golf: Super Rush
The latest iteration in the Mario golf series brings a lot to the table for the players. It is expected to be released on 25 June this year and it does look promising. The developers have tried their best to improve the collaborative gaming experience by adding a multiplayer mode along with improved graphics. Being a golf game, the Mario Golf: Super Rush still adds a story mode to the new one and we know the story in golf doesn’t sound that promising but the gameplay trailer and the leaks suggest otherwise.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is a visual overhaul of the Zelda game released in 2011 for the Wii. It is almost a decade after the original release but after the unimaginable success of the legend of Zelda Breath of the wild, the users are demanding more Zelda games to be brought back to the platform. Unlike the older game, the graphics will be improved to meet the standards of the switch.
The game revolves around the story of how exactly the master sword was created and if you plan to unravel all the minor details of the Zelda timeline, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD should be on your priority list for this year. The game will release on July 16 and it’s only a month away if you haven’t already played it yet.
Cris Tales is another long-awaited title for Nintendo Switch full of magic, dabbling between present and future, and the 2D gameplay that will engage you for hours. As per the trailer, the female protagonist moves along with the story, and each action or choice alters both the present and the future. The visual fidelity of this game sets it apart from the crowd where you have to battle constant waves of evil with your weapons and a combination of magic. The game is expected to arrive just after the Zelda game mentioned above and it looks like a long week for switch gamers.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
The sequel to the very popular RPG game for Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is making a comeback this year in the summer. No exact date is announced but the latest E3 presentation raises a lot of expectations for the fans of this series. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin features you and a monstee, paired together to explore the wilderness and combat monsters, of course. The game adds a lot of weapons ready to be used and upgraded as you progress.
You can also obtain ferocious and powerful monsters in the form of eggs and nurture them to hatch and join your team. Multiplayer mode is also supported where you can team up with your buddies and ravage the wildlands defeating monsters in the game. Don’t think that you will be running wild as the game promises a rich and engaging story mode too.
The game is finally launching after 19 years since its last title. A clear attempt to revive the otherwise forgotten series of Metroid earns a round of applause from our side. The game is a blend of fast-paced 3D action with a few video sequences that makes it more interactive rather than just a kill and moves strategy.
Metroid Dread comes with a whole lot of abilities for the players that include a cloaked mode to hide from the enemies. You can slide, jump, shoot, etc which is slightly seamless than the normal 2D games you see today. Metroid Dread will arrive on 10th October 2021 and we suggest you bag it on the first day.
WarioWare Get It Together
WarioWare Get It Together is a collection of mini-games in a package you wouldn’t have seen before. The game is one of the most-awaited and quirkiest titles which will now be available for the Nintendo Switch anytime soon. We wouldn’t compare it exactly to cuphead because cuphead is more difficult but the assortment of mini-games will surely lift your mood as you get to experience different actions and gameplay each time. It is a 2D masterpiece with one of the best voice-overs of all time and is suitable for most age groups.
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection
Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection brings you the best 3 games, although one among them is debatable, to the Nintendo Switch. You get to experience the immense 3D action of the Ninja Gaiden series while slicing enemies with your sword. The combat is the main highlight due to which the Ninja Gaiden series was popular and it is good that you get a Nintendo Switch port this June. If you haven’t tried Ninja Gaiden yet, we strongly suggest you not pass this one.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is a visual remaster of the earlier and widely successful Tony hawk skating games back in our childhood days. If you love skating or at least skating games, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is bringing the joy of both games bundled as one on the Nintendo Switch.
You get to skate in different locations and arenas that present a variety of challenges. Apart from that multiplayer is supported as well if you want to skate with your buddies while topping the leaderboard. The game hits the stores on June 25, which is a compact date for most titles, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is our recommendation for fans of extreme sports.
Outer Wilds makes its way to the Nintendo Switch this summer bringing you the quest of finding clues before the sun is destroyed in 22 mins. The game resets after 29 minutes and you do retain the knowledge and items scored across your journey. The game can be a little exasperating for gamers who hate the games that revolve in a loop. Nevertheless, the trailers don’t display a much downgrade in visual effects and it is a gorgeous game to explore outer space and witness the demise of the sun if you don’t manage to save it in time.
Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
Love Star Wars? It was a rhetorical question. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga brings you the joy of relieving the best parts of the Star Wars saga in their own quirky way as the Lego series has been in the past. The game will include multiple characters that you have to sometimes manage all at once and believe us the characters can be a handful.
The trailer for the most delayed game for Nintendo Switch has left us in splits and we expect it to arrive on the console by the end of this year. The date hasn’t been announced yet in the E3 conference this year but keeps your fingers crossed.
Fall Guys was the distinct-looking game of last year that now has a Nintendo Switch release planned this year. It is a game that targets multiple modes along with real-time players to ensure the utmost fun experience. Earlier destined to be released in summer, the devs are now eyeing the Q3 of 2021 as the release for the game and it wouldn’t be a surprise if it gets delayed again. If you want to relish a collaborative gaming experience devoid of planning strategies or intense action, fall Guys is the game for you.
Blue Fire is a visual treat for your eyes with intense action that will test your thumbs. It is set in a desolate kingdom named Penumbra where you have to discover hidden secrets and explore mystical dungeons, meet survivors and amass collectibles. Blue Fire gets tougher in combat as the story moves forward and the game tests your quick responses.
It is a 3D open-world game so you get to explore a lot about the abandoned and defunct kingdom and also craft items along the way. The traps are the best part of this and it made us remember the prince of Persia as a few traps get very difficult to evade. The boss fights are spectacular and if you love smashing buttons for multifold combos, Blue Fire is the latest addition to the Nintendo Switch for that very purpose.
We have listed the most hyped, most anticipated, and the most promising games to be released for Nintendo Switch this year and it includes a lot of fresh titles along with the ones that you would find on other consoles and pc. The biggest advantage with the switch is of course the portability as you can play both expansive 3D games and 2D games on the fly.
