Game News The 7 most anticipated Nintendo Switch games of the end of 2022
The end of the year is filled with releases on Nintendo Switch. The editorial staff of JV presents here a selection of the seven most anticipated games.
- Bayonet 3
- Worship of the Lamb
- Hogwarts Legacy
- Mario and the Rabbids: Sparks of Hope
- Pokemon Purple and Scarlet
- Splaton 3
- Xenoblade Chronicles 3
The naked witch, who loves to dress with her hair, resurfaces on Switch, to beat up the angel as since her debut. Announced in 2017, Bayonetta 3 will finally be released this fall. For the occasion, the game has planned several playable characters with Bayonetta, like Viola who fights with swords. In this new opus, we will travel through China and Tokyo in order to overcome a threat of human origin.
Worship of the Lamb
In Cult of the Lamb, the player embodies a lamb who mounts a satanic cult and must indoctrinate the small animals of the forest. You will therefore have to manage this growing community by defining tasks for your minions. As your success depends on the number of followers you gather around the cult, you will have to go and recruit them. Going on an adventure, we come up against a classic combat system, with a structure typical of rogue lite like Binding of Isaac.
- Cult of the Lamb is scheduled for August 11, 2022 on Switch, PC, PS5, Xbox Series, PS4 and Xbox ONE.
We grant it, it is not an exclusivity. But for science, we want to see it run on Switch. Hogwarts Legacy is coming to all platforms and promises a lot in terms of immersing yourself in an ancient Hogwarts. The game allows us to follow the schooling of a student, who will join a house to live his schooling there. The Switch version has yet to show any visuals.
Mario and the Rabbids: Sparks of Hope
The marriage between Nintendo and Ubisoft celebrates its big comeback, five years after the first episode. For these wooden weddings, the teams wanted to do better on all levels, without too much altering the formula that had made the success of the first game. Mario and the Rabbids: Sparks of Hope offers tactical combat, X-Com style, but simplified. There are several tables to be done during the campaign and the particularity of this episode is that everything will be more readable and freer.
Pokemon Purple and Scarlet
The new generation of pokemon arrives at the end of the year all over the world. In this new episode, the game recovers the elements of the game design of Pokémon Arceus, aiming in particular to modernize hunting and exploration. So we should have a more open world than before. The game offers two different teachers to support us. One per version, and both work on different things, which increases the specifics of each version a little more.
Splatoon 3 marks the arrival of a brand new story mode. Its multiplayer remains as dynamic as ever, in which you have to cover as many areas as possible by spraying them with paint while managing clashes with the opposing team. Paint has a prominent place in the gameplay, the player can blend into it to take cover and move faster, and it determines which team wins.
- Splatoon 3 is scheduled for September 9, 2022 on Switch.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is a Switch-exclusive RPG that features an open world, big robots, and a long-running epic. We follow six soldiers, belonging to two opposing factions, but who will have to join forces to face a greater threat.
