Switch has kind of been on the backburner for me lately, but yeah, they have a killer lineup this year. And so diverse! Love it.
 
Among those i’m only looking forward to kirby and bayonetta right now. I will probably get advanced wars on clearance though.

Zelda needs to show me that its weapon system is fixed, has real dungeons and doesn’t have an empty ass world before I even bother.

Splatoon 3, BOTW 2 and whenever Metroid comes out - that’s what I’m planning on buying on Switch. Not much more.

Considering how much of an impact BOTW had on the success of the Switch launch, I think it would be a big mistake to not launch BOTW2 with Switch 2.

Nintendo has other big hitters that can usher in Switch 2: MK9, next gen Animal Crossing, SM Odyssey 2, next gen Smash

Whatever happened to that MonolithSoft action rpg they released artwork for.

That is a game I'm interested in but have seen nothing of.




This is that one project inspired by Escaflowne, yes?

I'm eager to finally see something from this one. Really hope it wasn't cancelled.

It's a killer line-up even without BOTW2
It's a great line up.

BOTW 2 makes it a killer line up.

BOTW 2 is the kinda game all platform owners will be looking at, I can't say the same for games like Mario vs Rabbids or Splatoon 3.

I'm not trying to shit on the lineup here btw, it's fucking amazing and I'm looking forward to 85% of it, just my own view that BOTW 2 makes it a killer lineup, similar to GOW Ragnarok making this year a killer line up for Sony, without this game I'd say it's just a great lineup.

Thought gaf was racist. Now knows better, honorary gaffer 2022
If BOTW2 is more of the same, I'm passing on that (if it even comes out this year which I seriously doubt). The demo for TRIANGLE though was really good. SUNBREAK is not an exclusive and is coming to PC day and date. The rest. . .meh.

. . .also, other than KIRBY and POKEMAN, do any of those titles actually have a release date other than "this year. . .maybe."

It's Nintendo's and sonys year this year for sure.
I would say last was Xbox and PCs. These things tend to go in cycles.

Great stuff though. Best switch year in a long time and that's just the stuff we know about.

Conventional wisdom would suggest BOTW will not come out this year. Then again, they can pull off a Majora's Mask once in a while.

Hopefully it solves some of the issues from the original game and delivers a truly great Zelda.

With dungeons.

Majoras mask was made in a year botw 2 is 5 or 6 years (depending on if you think they sat on the wii u version for a year) ; it ain’t no majora’s mask it’s an last guardian lol.

Yep grabbing quite a few of those. Bayo 3 and Triangle Strategy are day 1 insta buys. Still not sold on the Advanced Wars remake but we’ll see.

Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams, and it was. It really was.
I just wanna see Metroid Prime 4...

Come on Nintendo! There's gotta be something to show, a teaser or something. It was re-started 3 years ago. This is already more development time than any full Metroid Prime game so far.

If Retro's in development hell again, at least keep us posted.

Splatoon is my favourite franchise of all time, but I'm reallllly hoping this is the game that gets launch with the pro or 2. whatever. The performance of 2 is great most times but it can suffer. Maybe they've learned something since 2 and the game will be more optimized.

Also, THANK you Nintendo for adding the damn lan adapter into the dock for the OLED. It's that small thing that I think will greatly help the online for these games.

New 3D Mario is due any time now. I'd take an Odyssey 2 happily and I have a feeling Bowser's Fury was a testbed for a more open-structure game.
Yeah I was thinking about that. A new game seems very likely with the movie dropping soon. We’ll know by E3.

Also can we get that Metroid Prime port already? I’m due for another playthrough.
