Nintendo Reconfirms What Games Are and Aren’t Coming Out

Here’s What We Know Thanks to Nintendo’s Latest Financial Report

While there were a number of, well, numbers, that Nintendo went over in its public financial report released today, including future projections and profits, we were able to get a good look to see what major games will be coming out at the end of this year, and is projected to come out sometime during 2022, and one that’s…well, still in the TBA section. Here’s what’s been confirmed!

First off, there’s Shin Megami Tensei V that will be coming out on November 12, 2021! From what we’ve seen, it’s a game to look forward to, with beautiful graphics and a great combination of old and new. There’s also Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda coming out as well, also on November 12th.  Later on in the month, on November 19, 2021, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will be coming out! It’s a long-awaited remake of the generation four pokemon game, promising to stay faithful to the original. In December, we’ll be seeing  Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain, on December 3rd, 2021. This will be the last major release of this year and will be great for testing your brain over the holiday season and into the new year.

Players won’t have to wait long though for the first major game of the year though. Pokémon Legends: Arceus, has been confirmed to come out on January 28th, which promises more of a Monster Hunter Story-esque experience than the traditional Pokémon experience. There does seem to be a little bit of a wait between major titles at the moment, as Triangle Strategy, a turn-based RPG style game, is set to come out on March 4th, 2022. There are no firm dates set for Kirby and the Forgotten Land, nor for Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp, but they have been said to be coming out in Spring of 2022. This may mean we will learn the soft dates for both games released in the New Year.

On the other hand, Splatoon 3, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, and Bayonetta 3 are said to be released in 2022, without any soft or hard dates. They are to be at least said to be released in 2022, which is more than what can be said for Metroid Prime 4. That game, sadly, is still listed as TBA. Maybe if we’re so lucky, we’ll hear more information about Metroid Prime 4 in the upcoming year. In the meantime, we can enjoy many new games on the Nintendo Switch!
