Gorgeous. Looks better than the first game.

Looks great! I can't wait to play it!



When 2022 is shaping up to become a lookalike 2017, lol.

We basically getting Splatoon 3, Mario + Rabbids sequel and if BOTW sequel is to released next year, then it sure sound like next year's gonna be a blast !

Evolving the mechanics to be more on the action side isn't too bad since they'll probably change enemies tactics accordingly. Just hoping this doesn't make the game easier because of this. First game had the right amount of difficulty (meaning it had good challenges !). Also, I'm happy they've changed the exploration segment into wilder section.

I mean ... I'm hoping this year ends up being like 2017 in terms of game output too. Especially since 2020 was a bad year for new games (good year for me though, but y'know) 

It's kind of funny how all the cool game announcements we're getting (and yes I'd say this is at least somewhat neat) are for 2022. E3 will definitely change that, I just hope it's by a lot.

I mean so far, it is a good year imo but once we get official words on SMT V release date, it might skyrocket it into SUPER DUPER AWESOME !

I'm not sure if I'll get this myself, but it's still nice to see a major new game announcement for Switch, feels like ages since the last time that happened.

Yeah this year's gotten off to a great start on Switch with Monster Hunter Rise and Crash 4, but at this point the only game I'm buying for the rest of the year is No More Heroes 3. I hope there's more worth getting for the next 6 months that we just haven't seen yet.

Anyway, I suspect BOTW2 will be 2022 so yeah it does look like it could end up as 2017 Version 2.0. Who knows, we might even get the next Monolith Soft game then too, that'd be a real mirror image.

Though it is annoying to wait, the upside of so many Switch games being 2022 is that the system clearly isn't head for the kind of massive dropoff of support as befell the Wii in 2011.

I wonder how many of these games would've been 2021 had the pandemic not occurred. 



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Most games that were released in the first half this year I'd bet.

Yeah I suspect Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury was supposed to be 2020, and I read somewhere that Monster Hunter Rise was too.

I mean, I wonder if 2022 games like Sparks of Hope, Splatoon 3, or Project Triangle Strategy were originally targeting this year.

Can't really say, we don't have much of a window for these games other than the year stated for now. Otherwise, Splatoon 3 will remain in that Spring/Summer release spot as usual.
