Today’s Nintendo Direct brought a bevy of game announcements, including bigshot reveals like Splatoon 3 and the announcement of Pyra in Smash Bros. But there were also a number of smaller announcements too, so here’s a rundown of all the little bite and bytes you might’ve missed:
- Outer Wilds (Summer 2021): Not to be confused for The Outer Worlds, this critically acclaimed 2019 title has you exploring the outer reaches of space while stuck in a twenty-two minute time loop. What secrets do the cosmos hold?
- Neon White (Winter 2021): From the creator of Donut County (of all things) comes a game where you battle demons… in heaven! This unique title appears to be a first person card battler, combining the pace and thrills of a FPS with the tactical fortitude of a CCG.
- World’s End Club (May 28th): From the creators of Dangan Ronpa and Zero Escape comes a new title about a bunch of young children trapped in a death game… sounds like them, doesn’t it? Until the death game is called off and the kids return to society only to find that the human race has disappeared. You’ll venture forth with 12 characters as they try to unravel the mystery of just what happened…
- Tales From the Borderlands (March 24th): This Telltale Game features choice-based storytelling and memorable characters set in the Borderlands universe. While a port of an older title, it’s worth a look if you’re into the genre.
- DC Superhero Girls: Teen Power (June 4th): If you’ve got a little one into the superheroic lifestyle, this licensed action brawler starring DC comic girls might be worth consideration. Play as Batgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman and more in this cartoony 3d beat-’em-up.
- Stubbs the Zombie: Rebel Without a Pulse (March 16th): In this port of an Xbox cult classic, you’ll take control of a zombie who can take control of humans to build the zombie hoard. With a goofy sense of undead humor, it complements another game on this list quite nicely…
- Plants vs. Zombies – Battle for Neighborville (March 19th): This third-person shooter spinoff of the PvZ series is being ported from other platforms, featuring the same silly shooter battles as its predecessors. It can tide you over until Splatoon 3 (if Splatoon 2 isn’t already getting the job done).
- Knockout City (May 21st): This arena multiplayer deathmatch doohickey is based on dodgeball! Pass between teammates before shoving your explosive projectiles down opponent’s throats.
- Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins Resurrection (February 25th): This remake of the legendary and brutal 80’s classic tests your aptitude all over again – but with a new co-op mode you just might beat this remaster of an old classic.
- SaGa Frontier Remastered (April 15th): Another remaster, this one of a Square Enix PS1 RPG classic featuring eight plotlines and rich, detailed world. This remaster includes a new playable protagonist and a new scenario to sink your teeth into.
- Apex Legends (April 9th): The popular hero-shooter battle royale is finally making its way to Switch in April. Pick your loadout and fight to the last man standing.
Phew! Too much good stuff to give the full deets on, though if anything piques your interest be sure to mark these dates down on your calendar.
