Upcoming Nintendo Switch Games in 2023
January 16, 2023
The latest Nintendo has certainly been a fan favorite, breaking sales records from its release, Nintendo Switch got off to a great start. On top of that, the future also looks quite promising, with first party titles, AAA hopefuls, and indies lined up to be thrust into gamers hands. We’re looking beyond the holidays– here are some of the picks for the best new upcoming Nintendo Switch Games in 2023 that we’re really excited about.
3 Nintendo Switch games you’ll love
Octopath Traveler 2
The original Octopath Traveler title helped set the stage for all the 2.5 HD titles that have come since. So it’s only fitting that the game that started it all would get a true sequel.
This time will be developed in a new world and will have 8 new characters with their own different stories to tell. From a dancer wanting to bring joy to the world, to a scholar seeking vengeance on the man who ruined his life, or a cleric trying to find her lost memories, all will be told here.
Plus, you’ll have even more refined graphics, more interaction between the 8 heroes (more than we got in the first game). Add that to a familiar yet fun battle system and Octopath Traveler 2 must be on your wishlist when it arrives next February.
Fire Emblem Engage
This is going to be the next major title in the strategy RPG line, and it’s going to have a really fun twist to it. In this opportunity you’ll be a dragon from a royal family. Although, you won’t be the only heroe, as through the power of certain rings, you’ll be able to summon the power of past Fire Emblem Heroes like Marth, Celica, Sigurd and more in order to boost yourself in combat.
Lastly, if you’re a long-time Fire Emblem fan, you’ll be happy to know that the turn-based tactics of the game will return and the graphics look pretty great. Plus, you’ll be able to find it out on January 20th.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Okay, this is, undoubtedly, one of the most expected games in this list. In fact, the gamer community is very excited, even though they know so little about the game. What’s more, not even the exact title is known.
However, there were a couple of negative reviews about the open world being a bit too wide open with not much between except an excess of Korok Seeds, and the story being fractured thanks to the “pick it up when you want to” nature of the game.
But well, what we know about this sequel is that, apart from a mangled Master Sword, the rather gruesome corpse Link comes across seems to be involved with his equally mangled arm, Likewise, according to past trailers, this time our hero will have the ability to float in the sky, and even pass through solid matter.
Could the open world be carved up into bite-sized chunks? Is that corpse none other than Ganondorf? Is Link’s corrupted arm a source of power, or a curse? You could argue some of the games earlier on the list will turn out more enjoyable, depending on what you enjoy. But almost none of them are generating as much potential as the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
