PlayStation Classic Announced and Releases December 3

Sony announced that they will be releasing a PlayStation Classic on December 3. It will come pre-loaded with twenty games. A few of the titles mentioned were Final Fantasy VII, Ridge Racer Type 4, and Wild Arms. More will be announced at a later time.

PlayStation Classic will cost $99.99 USD and $129.99 CAND. Tokyo Game Show is this week. Maybe more games will be announced there. They should put Metal Gear Solid on it.

This will be a great way to compete with Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classic Editions. But Nintendo is offering more games. NES Classic includes thirty games and SNES Classic has twenty-one games pre-loaded on it. They are also much cheaper. Next, maybe Microsoft should consider making a Xbox Classic.

Here are more details on the new micro console as well as pre-order information.

Four Upcoming First-Party Titles Coming To Nintendo Switch In 2019 I Am Most Hype For

Nintendo announced a handful of games that will come to Switch in 2019. There are more than four, the title only suggests the four games I happen to be looking forward to the most at the moment. One of the games has a release date, already other than the year.

The games I am mostly looking forward to are New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Animal Crossing, and Metroid Prime 4. (Before you jump in, I will explain why I brought up Metroid Prime 4 later.)

New Super Mario Bros. U originally released on Wii U in 2012. This version, New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe will include the full game plus all courses from New Super Luigi U’s expansion pack. He also got a stand alone physical release on Wii U the following year. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe launches for Switch January 11, 2019.

Next is Luigi’s Mansion 3. Note that this is the working title. When Luigi’s Mansion’s sequel released on Nintendo 3DS, it was called Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon in North America and Luigi’s Mansion 2 in Europe and Australia. Therefore, maybe the same treatment will happen. All we know is that the game will launch in 2019.

Another game I am looking forward to is Animal Crossing. There is no official title. Therefore, I will be referring to it as Animal Crossing 2019.

I am not a big fan of Animal Crossing in general. However, I did like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on my iPhone X, I played City Folk on Wii some, too, and I have seen gameplay for Animal Crossing for the GameCube. So, I will definitely give Animal Crossing 2019 a try when it comes to Switch.

Finally, the game many expected to be made by Retro Studios but does not seem to be made by them is Metroid Prime 4. The only information we received on this game is that it is coming sometime to Nintendo Switch from the E3 2017 teaser. That was two years ago. Even though this was not shown off during the Direct, I think there is still a chance Metroid Prime 4 could release next year on Switch. Until Nintendo confirms otherwise, we have to keep assuming. In addition to Nintendo, if half the year passes by, then we can assume 2020. (Now you can yell at me for bringing this game up if you still want to. Just take it easy on the tomatoes. Do people still do that?)

In conclusion, 2019 looks like a better year for Nintendo than 2018. Other games I did not list coming to Switch (Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition already released this week) are a handful of Final Fantasy games, (you can see my article on that here) Yoshi’s Crafted World, Yo-Kai Watch 4, (in Japan) Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, (in Japan as a streaming service) and many more. Be sure to check out the Nintendo Direct and the new Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey – Cloud Edition Trailer above to learn more.

Many games are coming to Nintendo Switch. It seems that for some reason, Nintendo showed more third-party games during the Direct than first and second-party games. This was bound to eventually happen sooner or later.
