Upcoming Release Thread

Postby VideoGameCritic » March 14th, 2022, 6:29 pm

Since I tend to get caught up in all the retro and limited run games, I figured it would be a good idea to make a thread about the new, modern titles on the horizon that we should be getting psyched up about.

Here are a few from Nintendo:
Nintendo Switch Sports - Apr 2022
Mario Striker Battle - Jun 2022
TMNT Cowabunga Collection - 2022
Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 - 2022

Feel free to chime in with any upcoming titles you are excited about, whether Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, or whatever.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land (March 25) I'm not really a big Kirby guy but this one actually looks kind of cool, kind of like a cross between Kirby and Mario Odyssey

Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga (April 5) Supposed to be all nine Star Wars movies, haven't looked into it too much but based on the videos on youtube it looks pretty different from your standard lego video game.

Sonic Frontiers (Holiday 2022) Don't know much about this one at all but hey it's Sonic, I think we're pretty much obligated at this point to play a new Sonic game whenever it comes out.

Bayonetta 3 is finally coming out this year for the Switch, although there's no official release date as of yet.

The Evercade Renovations and Gremlin carts, which just shipped for my copies...

Also Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Chrono Cross HD Switch, and an actual release of Live a Live (I was always fascinated by the SNES version from old game mags, will be GREAT to actually play this, especially since the Switch version seems to be based on the engine used for Octopath Traveler).

Also REALLY Looking forward to Switch Sports, so that my family can have a blast playing Bowling again (TONS of great memories from Wii Sports (Resort) Bowling).

And thanks for the reminder of Sonic Frontiers, will probably be getting that and Zelda BOTW2.

Yow, Pocky n Rocky has a new game? And Klonoa is getting a physical release???

Lodoss War is a Metroidvania release, didn't know it was getting a physical release in the US (it had a physical release in the Asian markets).

Also forgot the Physical Release of Valis Collection that I ordered. :)
