Season of Heaven is a game directly from a book with the same name. It follows a young boy and his dog in a magical adventure. They’ll encounter weird statues, creepy ghosts and even a huge monster-like spider. The trailer, which the dev said is a PC footage, doesn’t show much in terms of story or gameplay. But it gives us an idea of the overall feel of the game and it’s a Switch exclusive. We don’t know the exact release date, let’s hope it’s a year-one title. And here are the runners up before we reveal the number 1. Splatoon Switch.
Whether it’s a port or a sequel to the adorable shooter, we don’t know yet. What we do know is that it’s going to be one helluva shooter. It may even increase the visibility of Splatoon on the e-Sports scene. Mario Kart Switch. The console reveal showcased Mario Kart 8, or an updated version of it. As with other games in this list, details are scarce. But it looks like a better Battle Mode will be included and that’s good enough for us! Dragon Quest X. It might just happen. This Japan exclusive MMORPG title may finally be made available to Western players since its release in 2012 but it sure is coming to the Nintendo Switch soon. Cube Life: Island Survival HD. This is a port of block-building, survival game released on the Wii U in 2015. Again, there’s no official release date yet. Constructor HD. Harking back to the old days of PC gaming, this classic RTS gets a new life on the Nintendo Switch — as well as with other platforms.
Better graphics, re-balanced gameplay, new maps and modes. but no release date yet. Of course, there’s no denying that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most anticipated Nintendo Switch game of 2017 – 2018. Open world, deep RPG mechanics and a fun survival crafting system makes this the most promising Zelda in recent years. It’s obvious that this game is gonna shape Nintendo Switch once it hits the market. The story takes place in the future. Link wakes up in a world of loneliness. Kingdoms have fallen and weird mechanical robots rule the green valleys. The world is in peril and he has to do whatever he can to find out what really happened during his sleep. This game is taking Zelda to its most ambitious degree. Nintendo even mentioned that you can finish the game without beating the main story.
Now.. that’s interesting. We’ll see this game sometime in 2017 and hopefully it gets a release window because we can’t contain ourselves for long. Knowing Nintendo, this game is gonna be good!
