We are already half way through March 2018 and before we know it, E3 will be around the corner.
There has also already been some amazing announcements across all platforms for games releasing this year – the original Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS for example (I CAN’T WAIT). So why not write a little post about the games and announcements I am personally hoping for.
MY E3 WISHES
- Animal Crossing for the Nintendo Switch
- Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster
- A release date for Kingdom Hearts 3
- A DLC of more tracks for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Virtual Console for the Nintendo Switch (Including Gamecube)
- More Indie titles that are like “Rime”
- Crash Team Racing Remaster for PS4
- A proper announcement for Pokemon Switch (what it will be)
WHY I WISH FOR THESE POINTS
Let’s start off with Animal Crossing for the Switch. Animal Crossing has always been a favourite game of mine and it would be perfect to play on the new Nintendo console. I don’t want a deluxe version of New Leaf (although I wouldn’t necessarily be mad). I would love a new Animal Crossing game as a whole. Fingers crossed that Nintendo surprise us because I know I am not alone in wanting this game.
A Spyro the Dragon trilogy remaster would complete me. We have Crash back on our screens so why can’t we have our favourite purple dragon? I have many memories of me playing Spyro throughout my whole life and it is hard to play the original PS1 copies on the TV’s of today. I know it’s coming. I can feel it. It’s just a matter of when.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is something we are all waiting for and although I have not played all the KH games, I am still waiting patiently for the release date of number 3! I mean, it has the Monsters Inc. world included! My life will be made.
I am in endless love with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. However, I really would love to see some new tracks added. My reasoning for this is because I am quite frankly bored of the same old tracks. They added a DLC for tracks in Wii U Mario Kart 8 so why not add a DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe? I know I would purchase it.
One of my biggest wishes is Virtual Console for the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is a fine piece of art and an amazing console in many ways. I would love the opportunity to play older games on this console rather than the 3DS because it is more superior in more ways than one and I feel the quality of gameplay would be so much better. To further extend this wish, if Nintendo were to ever provide VC for the Switch, I would love to see Gamecube games included as I never had that console growing up.
Rime was one of the best Indie games I have ever played. I would love to see more Indie games produced that are similar to Rime in the sense of a silent protagonist, puzzles, beautiful scenery and full of emotion. This is a very broad statement however I believe Indie titles are easy to produce with these features.
I know I am definitely not the only one who wants to see Crash Team Racing remastered for the PS4. As much as I love and adore Mario Kart I find myself most of the time preferring CTR as I am a die-hard Crash Bandicoot fan.
Last but not least, a proper announcement for the new Pokemon on Switch will be fantastic. What will it be like? When will it be released? These are the things I would love to know.
The next few months in the lead up to E3 will be interesting. Some of my wishes may get announced pre-E3, some may get announced during E3 and some may not get announced at all. Nonetheless, I am sure this year’s E3 will be a huge success.
