Looking back at 2022’s lineup of Video Games, there were a lot of new and exciting games that graced us, video game players. Some of these games include Eldin Ring, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and Metroid Dread. Many other things, such as the N64 online software, got major updates. Some of the games ported over include The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask, and one of my personal favorites, Banjo-Kazooie. However, what does this year hold in terms of games? Let’s check out the three that I feel will live up to the hype the most!
Hogwarts Legacy: Next month Hogwarts Legacy releases on the PlayStation 5. While I don’t own a PlayStation, I still think this game is worth talking about, as it looks amazing. Harry Potter fans, such as myself, should look forward to this massive-looking game. From the trailers, it seems to have incredible graphics, music, gameplay, etc. Anyone who is a fan of Harry Potter, or just of great games in general won’t want to miss out on this exciting release. I may have to wait a bit longer for it to come out on switch, but it will be worth it!
N64 Online Roadmap: For those of you who are NSO + Expansion Pack members, I am happy to say that this year has many exciting classic games coming to Switch. My siblings and I have been non-stop playing Mario Party 2 since it came out last November, and are very excited about the third game coming to the system. I have never played a Pokemon Stadium game, yet will be giving them a try when they come out. But the cherry on top is the highly anticipated release of Goldeneye 007 sometime this year.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: Last but certainly not least, the sequel to my favorite video game of all time is coming out on 12. I am seriously excited about this game as the first game was done so incredibly well. I don’t think that this game will be able to achieve Breath of the Wilds’s brilliance, but it still looks marvelous. Getting to explore a vast sky, uncovering secrets from the first game, and plenty of new abilities to add to Links’ arsenal. There is no way this game disappoints.
When the next Nintendo Direct rolls around, I’m sure there will be a lot more to talk about. Until then, I hope you enjoyed my preview!
