Since 2020 was the year of Animal Crossing New Horizons and a lot was made with it, this trick cannot be repeated in 2021. The Big N relates to other games this year, but keeps the cards closed for now. This is pretty disconcerting considering the hardcore fans, too Not Players need reasons to search for new titles.
The lost war
Nintendo has always been the company that has followed its own path. It is precisely for this reason that the company is achieving success in the strangest ways. The downside is that anxiety regularly reigns in the crowd. This is also the case in 2021, because the company has yet to reveal many games for this year.
At the moment only a deluxe version of Super Mario 3D WorldAnd the Monster Hunter Rise, Pokémon Snap en Bravely default II On schedule. Of course we can’t say anything about the quality yet, but everyone knows the war was not won by this. They are not System vendors That makes switching popular.
Honestly, Nintendo needs more to win the war. That is, if he wants to play side by side in the big exclusive games. The past shows that Nintendo is the manufacturer of the exclusive games for which it gets a console, but this year PlayStation is moving to the same title for an all-new console everyone wants: PlayStation 5.
However, Nintendo has enough lead in the warehouse to make 2021 a great year. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Gets a sequel that has no release date, Bayonetta 3 It was detected years ago and is normal Metroid Prime 4 There is, too. The problem is, all of these headlines are still without a release date.
This makes it extremely difficult to estimate whether Nintendo will witness the glorious year of 2021. Nintendo is not averse to the delay if there are doubts that the games are not ready. With titles that have no release dates, of course, it’s easy to do.
However, there is much hope that Nintendo will continue to make the best titles this year. After all, 2021 is the year the Japanese company’s major annual celebrations will be held. For example, The Legend of Zelda is 35 years old. Last year, another icon, Mario, celebrated his birthday, and it celebrated the 35th year of the plumber’s life well.
Several Mario games were revealed and released, such as Paper Mario: The King of OrigamiAnd the Super Mario 3D All-StarAnd the Mario Kart Live Home circuit And some other titles. Hopefully Nintendo will do the same with The Legend of Zelda, a series that fans have also loved for decades.
Fans are secretly hoping the Switch’s Zelda collection will appear in a cute HD package. Two titles have already made it to Wii U in a new variant (The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess), so a third title won’t stop there and launching as a group for Switch won’t be a mistake. After all, rumors have spread in the past about the Switch’s Skyward Sword port.
Let the strange man come out
A celebration of Pokemon is also scheduled. The popular series with Pikachu as a 25-year-old icon and the parent company The Pokémon Company has already indicated that they want to dump a lot. Rumor has it that among other things, a Pokémon Diamond & Pearl remake is planned for the Switch and of course it will come New Pokemon Snap Also this year.
Of course it has to be said that the Pokémon Company is a loose affiliate and it makes independent decisions. Nintendo may be the exclusive publisher, but that doesn’t mean the company has any influence over the Pokémon Company’s releases. The fact that the Pokémon Company is unpacking its bags for the anniversary says nothing about Nintendo’s plans.
Desert full of oases
Overall, Nintendo has more than enough options for 2021 in this regard. The only question is whether the company really comes up with the advertised addresses. For now, 2021 feels like a desert for Nintendo with a little oasis here and there to quench your thirst.
Even now, there is still a shortage of major versions the Switch can keep in 2021. Maybe that will change soon. Fans just hope that Nintendo Direct will be revealed soon.
