Top 15 Most Anticipated Games of 2021 on Nintendo Switch

The past year was not very generous with releases for Nintendo Switch: something was transferred, something was frozen, and something was canceled altogether. So be it. But 2021 promises fresh ports from other platforms, continuation of well-known series and completely new unusual games. In this article, we'll take a look at the most anticipated projects due out in 2021 on Nintendo Switch.


The most anticipated games of 2021


Skyforge

Skyforge

The popular fantasy MMORPG from the Russian Allods Team will soon reach the Nintendo system. The game was fully adapted for a portable platform. In the first weeks after the release, everyone will have access to exclusive content that can be obtained for completing several training tasks. You don't need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play with friends, and the download will be completely free, like all future add-ons.

Release date: February 4, 2021


Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

A revised version of the Nintendo Wii U game in which Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Peach rescue the fairy kingdom from Bowser. Players will receive several new mechanics: a super bell for turning into a cat that can cling to walls, a double cherry for cloning a hero, a cannon hat for shooting at enemies ... Super Mario 3D World will have even more content thanks to the new add-on Bowser's Fury. At the start, not only local multiplayer will be available for playing with friends, but also an online mode.

Release date: February 12, 2021.


Persona 5 Strikers

Persona 5 Strikers

Contrary to all expectations, this project does not continue the iconic Persona 5: players will become the heroes of a completely new story in a familiar world. During a trip to Japan, a group of friends will find out the truth about the mysterious disappearances, find the source of corruption and restore order in the country. A new combat system has been introduced into the game, which combines the best turn-based mechanics with quick attacks on ten opponents.

Release date: 23 Feb 2021


Bravely default 2

Bravely default 2

A JRPG from Claytechworks with turn-based combat and a deep, non-linear storyline was announced at The Game Awards in December 2019. Despite a completely new story, developing in a different world and not related to the previous installments of the series, Bravely Default 2 promises to delight all fans. The developers started from the previous experience and kept the most popular mechanics. At the moment, a demo version of the project can be found in the Nintendo online store.

Release date: February 26, 2021


King's bounty 2

King's bounty 2

The long-awaited continuation of the tactical RPG from Russia, where there was a place not only for technical, but also for gameplay changes. Now roleplaying is tied to the character class, so in some situations the heroes will receive different options for completing tasks. A system of disciplines has been implemented that is responsible for the worldview, which opens up new abilities and unique replicas in dialogues. Battles have become more realistic: the units in the squad are represented not only by numbers, but also by real models on the battlefield, and arenas in tactical mode look the same as the surrounding area on the travel map. Otherwise, this is the same game - classic and favorite.

Release date: March 2021


Monster hunter rise

Monster hunter rise

Another chapter in the popular RPG series coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch. The action takes place in the village of Kamura, 50 years after the great disaster. Players will have to fight various monsters to prevent the world from plunging into chaos. It will be possible to join forces with users from all over the Earth, and the updated combat system will acquire new mechanics. Offline missions will finally have a pause function, and downloads will be shorter.

Release date: March 26, 2021.


LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

The largest game in the LEGO series, where players can immerse themselves in the universe of Star Wars and play through all nine episodes of the movie saga.

Release date: Spring 2021


Apex legends

One of the most dynamic shooters in the battle royale genre will soon reach the handheld Nintendo console. Electronic Arts strives to ensure that players around the world can enjoy their favorite game, regardless of the platform they choose. They promise crossplay between different devices and even more new content and equipment.

Release date: 2021


Shin megami tensei 5

Shin megami tensei 5

There is still no detailed information about the project announced in the summer on the Nintendo Direct Mini. It is known that the story will develop in post-apocalyptic Japan. The first video showed two schoolchildren with hordes of demons hovering around them. Atlus has announced that the release on Nintendo Switch is expected in 2021.

Release date: 2021.


No more heroes 3

No more heroes 3

A full-fledged continuation of the acclaimed series of action games about Travis Touchdown. Returning to his hometown after ten years of absence, the hero discovers a huge metropolis, over which an unknown space object hovers. Travis will have to arm himself with his favorite lightsaber and defeat a legion of highly evolved hostile creatures. The game will have absolutely everything that fans love: a dynamic story, sparkling humor and a ton of action.

Release date: 2021.


Overwatch 2

Overwatch 2

The second part of the popular multiplayer shooter from Blizzard promises to radically refresh the approach to the familiar gameplay. The developers have improved the engine and design, and the main emphasis is placed on PvE battles, in which players have to defeat an army of robots. Completely new ones will be added to the already known characters, skill leveling and unique events with heroic tasks will appear. The multiplayer battles from the original are also not forgotten: they are diversified by several fresh modes and the ability to transfer all purchased items from the first game.

Release date: 2021.


The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

The first collaboration project between Daedalic Entertainment and Middle-earth Enterprises, in which players will try on the role of Gollum from the works of J.R.R.Tolkien (John Ronald Reuel Tolkien). Together with this controversial character, we will go on a great journey across Mordor and find out the backstory of the creature before the start of the main events of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Ring of Omnipotence has already enslaved the hero's mind, so a lot of time has been devoted to his inner experiences and reflections. Some decisions will affect the general atmosphere of what is happening, but will not lead to any critical changes. Most of the gameplay will be stealth and parkour, and open battles are expected to be minimal.

Release date: end of 2021


Metroid prime 4

Metroid prime 4

This series has always stood out against the background of other projects with a well-developed gameplay. Retro Studios has been recruiting the most experienced professionals from DICE and Treyarch for a long time to not only update the old ideas, but also add more drama to the plot. There is no nominally exact release date yet, but fans are hoping for a release next year.

Release date: unknown


Bayonetta 3

Bayonetta 3

One of the most anticipated games ever on the Nintendo Switch. Both previous installments received rave reviews, but the third has been in development for far too long. Some players no longer believe in success at all, but the developers demand to set aside panic and patiently wait for the presentation of the first frames. There is no release date, but most likely the first details about the project will appear soon.

Release date: unknown


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

It has been a long time since the release of the first part of the game, which radically changed portable gaming. A multitude of unique gameplay mechanics and a well-crafted storyline have allowed Breath of the Wild to become one of the best RPGs in the history of not only portable consoles, but video games in general. It would be odd on the Big N side to abandon such a successful franchise, in fact the Switch system-sellers. This is why Nintendo launched the sequel to the Zelda and Link story immediately after the original game was released. The developers are keeping the new features secret for now, but they promise to keep the familiar atmosphere.

Release date: unknown


***
In general, 2021 for the Nintendo Switch promises to be rich in releases. But we only remembered the largest and most anticipated projects! We should also mention Black Book, Alice: Asylum, Little Nightmares 2 and Zelda: Skyward Sword HD - small but original things that are also worthy of attention. Let's wait and hope that next year nothing important will be postponed or canceled. Holiday greetings!
