My 2021 Expectations:
-Zelda 35th Collection, includes Windwaker,Twilight Princess,Skyward Sword
-Another Life-Simulator game (Like Tomadachi Life)
-New Mainline Kirby(Been a while since a true Kirby game so it makes sense)
-New Mario Party
-Switch Pro Holiday 2021 Release
Stuff We already know that's coming:
-Mario 3D World DX
-Monster Hunter Rise
I also feel like an entirely new 3D Mario Game has a strong possibility of happening in 2021 since it's about to be nearly 4 years since Mario Odyssey released and Nintendo EPD usually makes a new 3D Mario game within the average 2-4 year timeframe. However, I'm somewhat doubtful that it'll release this year because:
1.Zelda BOTW 2 is expected to release this year and I can't see Nintendo wanting to canibalize their sales by releasing a new 3D Mario and BOTW 2 in the same holiday season, and I can't see Nintendo releasing a new 3D Mario early in the year when Nintendo will likely push to market 3D World DX for the first few quarters of 2021.
2. The Pandemic probably pushed 3D Mario's development further back and most likely delayed it.
I'm also going to be a pessimist and predict that Bayonetta 3 won't release this year. I feel like if it was we would at least see SOMETHING at this point but we've seen nothing at all besides someone saying development is going well, and I'm sure that the pandemic pushed the game well behind schedule to the point where I don't believe it'll release in 2021, more likely a 2022 title. If it weren't for the pandemic I would've likely predicted it to be a 2021 title.
Prime 4 being a 2021 title imo is wishful thinking. That game at the earliest will release 2022, no way 2021 especially with the Pandemic.
