The versatility of the Switch made the console recover the morale of Nintendo, shaken after the extremely low sales of Wii U. At first, many worried that the platform would not receive so many games from other companies, but the platform surprised and won games like Diablo III, Dark Souls Remastered and DOOM, for example.
- 6 most anticipated games only for Playstation 4 in 2019
- 5 most anticipated games only for Xbox One in 2019
For 2019, the main expectations are for a new Pokémon, with a similar formula that fans are accustomed to, and the arrival of New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, already in January. Let’s list the most anticipated.
1. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
Of course Nintendo would take advantage of the Switch to relaunch its flagship game, which was kind of forgotten on Wii U. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe arrives on January 11th and features a high-quality 2.5D platform gameplay that does not require presentations. This new version brings, also, two new personages: the rabbit Nabbit and Toadette (that turns into Peachette).
2. Luigi’s Mansion 3
To this day I have not been able to fully understand this Nintendo sadism in putting poor Luigi aspired to ghosts in haunted mansions. It clearly is not happy about it, but doing what? Everyone needs to work to pay the bills. Finally, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is a game of exploration and puzzles, plus another promise for 2019, with no set date.
3. Bayonetta 3
Bayonetta is a hack’n slash with very fast controls and several combos. The series drinks a lot from the source of Devil May Cry, but it conquered its own charisma with the witch, nothing shy, like protagonist. Bayonetta 2, previously exclusive to the Wii U, also won its version for the Switch and the hype is high for the arrival of the third game of the franchise.
4. Yoshi’s Crafted World
The most adorable dinosaur of the games wins a new game with Crafted World. Yoshi, which has until today to resent Mario for using it as a springboard, now explores the two sides of a whole world created with cardboard (virtual, you can leave it is not Labo). In the platform title, you must help Yoshi through obstacles using anti-gravitational eggs, which can be used as a weapon.
5. Fire Emblem: Three Houses
The game takes place Fódlan, region where the population suffers with the enormous influence of the Church of Seiros. Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a turn-based tactical RPG that promises to add new battle modes, with the formation of troops to support other units on the battlefield.
6. Saints Row: The Third
Think of GTA on a day of fury during a rave party. That is, more or less, what you can expect from Saints Row: The Third. This is one of those games that plays without any commitment at all and just for the sheer fun of throwing, destroying, exploding and carrying obscene objects in the hands (and using them as a weapon).
