Finally! After well over a year, Nintendo surprised everyone on Tuesday by announcing its first Nintendo Direct event of the year. The focus was on Nintendo Switch titles for the first half of 2021, though there were a few for later in the year. From remasters, to ports and surprising new sequels, the hype was justified! They've obviously been sitting on some big news, so let's dig into everything that was announced!
Though not launching until next year, this was one of the biggest announcements. The Splatoon series is wildly popular, and the third installment in the family friendly paint-shooter looks to ramp things up in a big way!
Possibly one of the biggest games of the past year, this platformer battle royale hit is finally hitting a new platform; the Nintendo Switch port will arrive this summer. Grab the crown!!
Plants vs Zombies: Battle For Neighborville
The latest smash hit in the ultra popular series drops on March 19. All the zany third-person shooter action is here in a complete edition including all characters and content from previous versions of the game!
Coming May 21 from Velan Studios, Knockout City comes to town, bringing non-stop online based dodgeball. Think Overwatch meets your favourite memories from gym class. Can't wait for this!
Nintendo really brought the fire with these reveals, and there are even more. In the hour long event, trailers were also shown for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Mario Golf: Super Rush, Outer Wilds, Monster Hunter: Rise, Star Wars: Hunters and more! Nintendo Switch fans are in for a jam packed year and just think...soon we'll hear about more awesome games coming for 2021!
