Animal Crossing for Switch
A new Animal Crossing title is already confirmed to be in the works for mobile, although specifics are currently uncertain. I’d love for it to tie-in to a new Switch version of the game, thus allowing players to always have the pleasantry that is Animal Crossing in their pocket. The two games could interact in a number of ways, such as allowing the iOS app to take place in a separate area where players could find rare objects and fruit to bring back to the full game.
It’s starting to look like Pokémon might take an unprecedented year off, but I very much doubt it. If the rumored Pokémon Stars doesn’t get announced at E3, I’d like to see Nintendo revive one of the most beloved spin-offs. I’m talking about Pokémon Snap, of course (apologies to all of the ride or die PokéPark fans out there), the awesome on-rails photography title that Nintendo put out on the N64. No other releases have fully imitated its gameplay, and it’s seemingly tailor-made for the Switch’s screenshot feature.
The classic NES action-adventure title StarTropics is one of the few Nintendo titles to never get a Japanese release. It has become a cult classic in the 25+ years since then, and a remake would make a lot of sense. Not only would the revamped game please fans that have been asking for the series to be used, it could also be a way to gauge interest in an all-new sequel. It has the unique advantage of being nostalgia play to hardcore Nintendo fans, while also offering up a fresh gameplay experience to most Switch owners.
