Bravely Default II with new release date

The new game from Square Enix was scheduled to arrive in 2020, but Nintendo revealed that Bravely Default II got a new release date: February 26, 2021.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town gets date

For fans of a good farm life arcade, Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town won a release date on Nintendo Switch and arrives on March 23, 2021. If you’re a fan of Harvest Moon and games of the genre, there is an interesting title to keep an eye on.

Surviving: The Aftermath – a strategy game on the Switch

If you like resource management and survival games, Surviving: The Aftermath is an interesting game that is due to arrive in the American spring (our autumn) on the Nintendo console.

Ubisoft’s new game that mixes mechanics from Assassin’s Creed and Zelda will also arrive on the Big N console on December 3, featuring a variety of exploration, combat (with three different weapons) and puzzles.

Several third party games coming to Switch

The company quickly revealed several third-party titles that will also arrive on the Nintendo Switch. Are they:

  • Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia (November 3)
  • Griftlands: Nintendo Switch Edition (American summer – our winter – 2021)

  • Part Time UFO (today)

Hitman 3 and Control Ultimate Edition arrive on the Switch via the cloud

Although Hitman 3 and Control are extremely heavy games, Nintendo has adopted a different way of bringing them to the Switch: through the cloud. Control is now available to players, but Hitman 3 will only be available in the future (no scheduled date).

Hyrules Warriors: Age of Calamity with Switch demo

Although the Nintendo Mini is geared towards partners, Big N has reserved a space at the end of the video to reveal that Hyrules Warriors: Age of Calamity, the game that will be a prequel to Breath of the Wild and a muse, will still receive a demo on the laptop (and the save you generate will be carried over to the final version of the game).
