Okay, so I’m changing the format of this series a little bit. Instead of one week, I’m going to do these in two-week segments. There are definitely weeks where there isn’t much to discuss or announce, so we’re going to shift it just a little bit. There is some pretty great stuff coming to the Nintendo over the next few months, as well as this beautiful month of March! A good example is the 26th of March, where Final Fantasy VII arrives! Then Colton’s most-anticipated game for the foreseeable future – Yoshi’s Crafted World is on the way on March 29th, 2019. It’s another adorable Yoshi game, and I’m sure it’s going to sell absolute piles of copies.
April’s got a lot of fun releases that you’re sure to hear from me again about – Specifically Final Fantasy X/X-2, and Final Fantasy XII, on April 16th and 30th respectively. But it’s more than just Square-Enix RPGs, I swear. Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy hits the Switch on April 9th 2019 from Capcom, and I know a bunch of people excited for that. Finally, The Lord of the Rings Living Card Game will hit the Switch sometime in April. I don’t know when, but it’s presently scheduled to arrive. But more important than the horizon – what’s out in this last two weeks?
Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Everybuddy! (March 20th, 2019): The “Final Fantasy Fables” series is back with another of the beloved Mystery Dungeon games! Chocobo and his best pal Cid are here to travel through endless dungeons and befriend a host of different Final Fantasy monsters! The world is shaped by your actions, but things only move when Chocobo does. It’s adorable, and I’m always glad to see the Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon come back with another title. Plus it’s also a co-op game, and the world needs more fun, cute games that are also two player. Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon looks super cute and also looks like a lot of fun. It’s high on my list right now for “games I want to play when I’m finally through reviewing stuff”. (39.99)
Turok (March 18th, 2019): Turok is one of the first Nintendo 64 games I played. As I didn’t own one, I played the N64 over at one of my best friends place, and he happened to have Turok, alongside Killer Instinct and Super Mario 64. So imagine my surprise that the original Turok game was remastered in a new game engine, given some new features, and released on the Switch! It has 14 incredible guns, including the incredibly badass Atomic Fusion Cannon! How can you go wrong with something that powerful? The dinosaurs also have variable degrees of aggression to make them react differently to you, but they still have to be defeated. Turok is a classic, and though every game in the franchise wasn’t a hit, this one was. (19.99)
Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered (March 21st, 2019): Now, I never really got into the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and I felt even less drawn to Assassin’s Creed 3. It followed Connor, an assassin who was half Native American, half British, drawn to this conflict of freedom in America. It’s a decades-long battle for freedom and thanks to the plight of his village, he’s ultimately drawn into this battle. This re-release of Assassin’s Creed 3 also features all of the solo DLC missions/content, so there is an absolute mountain of people that need to be murdered. I will say though, Assassin’s Creed 3 does feature one of my favorite potential missions in the “Tyranny of King Washington” DLC. I like the idea of seeing what would happen if George Washington went absolutely mad with his unlimited power, instead of working towards democracy. So, this is now available on the Switch and should you have missed it/want to assassinate on the go, this is for you. (39.99)
