And what about the other games on the Switch? Hades, Dragon Quest XI S, Octopath Traveler, Wargroove, Mario+Rabbids, the SteamWorld series, A Short Hike, Celeste, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Bloodstained (all 3), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Astral Chain, The Witcher 3, Ori (both), Untitled Goose Game, Hellblade, Civ VI, Valkyria Chronicles (1 and 4), and a bonus for you: Pato Box (a quasi Punch Out).
And I'm sure other people could list other amazing games that have escaped me now.
Let's take a quick look at the main events of the first semestre of 2021.
- Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury (port + bonus content)
- Bravely Default 2 (sequel to a beloved series)
- Monster Hunter Rise (new entry in a mega hit series)
- New Pokémon Snap (sequel fans have been begging for over 2 decades)
- Miitopia (remaster of a harmless game that sold extremely well on 3DS)
- Mario Gold Super Rush (brand new entry with features fan have been asking for ages)
- Fall Guys (one of the multiplayer phenomena of 2020)
- Famicom Detective Club (an old series revived for today... isn't that what you want to see?)
- Age of Calamity DLC (support for a recent release)
And just in July, Zelda SS HD
And this is the usually slow semestre of the year. Since we know until July + a few bonus games, we should be getting another Direct to showcase the rest of the year.
And while I wish we had other franchises getting the spotlight, they don't sell well. So they're riskier. We're not getting a year of just the C team of franchises. We'll get them sprinkled around. And if they sell well, then they become less risk and we get more games.
