Yoshi's Crafted World looks like a very fun and charming platformer. I've never played a Yoshi game before, but from what I've seen so far this one seems very promising. Also, this is basically guaranteed to be my graphics GOTY for 2019.
Shovel Knight: King of Cards is a new campaign for one of the best platformers ever made, so of course it's going to be great. The devs called it "our biggest and most grandest singleplayer campaign yet". On the same day they're also releasing Shovel Knight Showdown, which is a multiplayer fighting game, and looks very fun as well.
Pokémon Gen 8 is a game we know we know absolutely nothing about, and there's a lot that could go wrong. Still, it's a new main entry in one of my favourite franchises, so I can't help being excited for it. I mostly hope Game Freak focusses on making the game actually good, instead of just 'different'.
Other games I might play: Luigi's Mansion 3, Animal Crossing, Metroid Prime 4, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Pikmin 4, Doom Eternal, Team Sonic Racing, My Friend Pedro... However, I have so many older games to play, so I doubt I'll end up getting any of these.Last edited by Flilix - on 05 January 2019
