I don’t get it either and yet it’s like that almost every time. It’s weird. Like, I get that it’s a good format for simply announcing things that intends and succeeds in inciting that kinda feeling but, man, people create all sorts of expectations for themselves and analyse these things in such a strange way afterwards. Oh well.
Now, on topic, I see lots here that I like. Both TWEWY and Hyrule Warriors were games I was planning on buying at some point for the DS but it appears I’ll no longer have to, which is pretty sweet. Don’t think I realised how much I wanted a new Mario Tennis game but I’ll be having that and DKC:TF to go along with it for sure and Dark Souls is a given. As that’s now a reality of the system alongside DOOM, another favourite game from the past decade, it actually made me think how badly I would love for other favourite games of mine to make it to the Switch, particularly MGSV. The more the merrier, I say.
Anyway, Super Mario Odyssey’s free update is a nice surprise but the one announcement I’m really looking forward to more information on, surprisingly, is Mario + Rabbids’ second DLC pack. No surprise that they chose Donkey Kong as the additional character but I’d love to see how they intend to distinguish his moveset and abilities from the other characters already present in the game and whether or not the new world will also include additional tactical elements like those seen in the free Versus Mode update. Maybe they’ll push it even farther and there’ll be more interesting enemies added too and perhaps a new weapon effect, if not all new weapons entirely. Definitely one I’ll be keeping an eye despite the further onslaught of great games to keep me distracted, that’s for sure.
