What’s new and most wanted announcements?
Well, there’s a lot of surprises as in the Xenoblade Chronicles. The definitive Edition had a release date on May 29 along with a fresh look at the gameplay for the next Switch port. A new puzzle game developed by Nintendo. It has the option for the players making their way through an office complex in a visual style reminiscent of animated safety signs. All these updates are releasing today!
Furthermore, the 2K Games is bringing some of its most popular games to Switch on May 29th, including the XCOM 2 Collection (XCOM 2 and all its DLCs, including the War of the Chosen expansion), the Legendary Borderlands Collection (Borderlands, Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel) and all three BioShock games (available separately or via the BioShock: The Collection package).
While in the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros, final will be one of Arms’s fighters and will be available in June. Nintendo hasn’t said which Arms character will join Smash Bros, but since Arms is already a Nintendo fighting game for Switch, it seems like a natural choice.
In addition, Burnout Paradise Remastered will arrive on Nintendo Switch, following the launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC last year. It will be released later in 2020. There are more classic Star Wars ports: Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy will be available on Switch starting today, while Star Wars Episode I: Racer – the classic N64 arcade and podcast game – will be available later this year on Switch.
Catherine: Full Body will arrive on Switch on July 7, after last year’s release on PlayStation 4. The new door should help anyone who is disappointed that the remastered puzzle game’s PS Vita UK port has been canceled by offering a new handheld console to play on.
We took another look at the upcoming Armor Island expansion for Pokémon Sword and Shield, which showed how players will get the legendary Pokémon Kubfu and turn it into Urshifu. The expansion is still scheduled for release in June.
