So last night marked the latest update from Nintendo via a Direct, highlighting upcoming games both announced and unannounced. There was definitely some surprises in these new reveals and in this blog we will update you on everything in case you didn't have time to catch it last night.
Nintendo unveiled a new membership plan which would include titles from classic games for the Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis. It is important to note that this expansion pack will be a different membership that you can upgrade to if you already have a Nintendo Online membership and will have all your previous benefits. Below we will summarise what games will be out on launch in late October, keep in mind Nintendo has said they will be adding more such as The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Banjo Kazooie. There is also some wireless versions of the classic controllers for their corresponding consoles that will be available to pre-order at a later date.
First up one of my personal favorite games of this year Monster Hunter Rise, is getting a full-blown expansion. The trailer hinted at what we can expect in terms of an antagonist monster; somewhat similar to Fatalis but with a more sinister tone. This should introduce a lot of new monsters, armor, weapons and the G rank for hunters. End of the trailer indicated this will be releasing in Summer 2022. If you're yet we've got the best price available below.
Kirby is also back with a 3D platform adventure that is looking fantastic. Set in what seems to be set in a lush colourful region known as The Forgotten Land which players will be able to explore and battle through in Spring next year.
RPG Disco Elysium is being ported to Switch on the 12th of October and will boast a new interface that is more suitable for the Nintendo's flagship console. Choices here matter as you become a hero or a villain in this RPG adventure. Discover clues via interrogation and exploring the skills within yourself.
Last night also saw the big reveal of Bayonetta 3's gameplay. Platinum games did not disappoint here, with all the crazy theatrics you'd come to expect from a Bayonetta game whilst also revealing some new mechanics. Bayonetta 3 will launch for Nintendo Switch in 2022, we'd expect to see more of this game in future Nintendo Directs.
Previously announced at a Nintendo Direct back in February we got another glimpse of colourful paint-filled Splatoon 3. The next installment of the Splatoon story is set to release in 2022 and will host that 4v4 multiplayer combat everybody loves whilst forwarding the story with a fresh new single-player campaign.
As we all eagerly await Mario Kart 9 it seems Final Fantasy have us covered with the announcement of Chocobo GP a cutesy sequel to the 1999 original that nobody saw coming. If you're ready to jump into some kart racing then Chocobo GP releases 2022 for Nintendo Switch.
Mario Party Superstars is not too far away now releasing on October 29th. Nintendo showed 3 boards that you will be able to play on which are: Woody Woods, Yoshi's tropical island and Horror Land. They also confirmed online play is supported on all boards and mini-games which is fantastic news. If you want to pre-order Mario Party Superstars then we have put the best price available below.
