the saga Fire Emblem grows with a delivery that has the important task of gaining the trust of new users, while trying to convince veterans with a scheme of tactical RPG that does not incorporate few novelties.

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe
Kirby’s Adventure It was one of the most interesting cooperative adventures we had on the Wii console, so it wasn’t a bad idea to bring it back on Nintendo Switch, now in a new version that of course brings a renewed graphic section on High Definition. All with a very platform-like gameplay, but also very beat ’em up, which contains not a few mini-games and fun for up to 4 players with a wide variety of situations. An ideal game to enjoy in company and that of course has all the charm of Kirby and his fantastic universe.

It is not the first time that Platinum Games it is out of the ordinary, and in this case we have to talk about a new Bayonetta game that hardly anyone could have expected. It is an adventure that has little to do with the hack ‘n slash action of other video games, but it has an important objective: tell us the story of Cherry. This character has a central importance in the license, and that is why the video game is mainly aimed at fans of the witch from Umbra. It will be interesting to check its quality and if it is a game that is worth it.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
It is the most anticipated launch of the Nintendo Switch in 2023, with the important task of becoming a sequel that is at least up to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. To achieve this, Link moves to the skies of hyrule to open new playable and narrative horizons. The mysterious power that emanates from her arm, an enigmatic character, the return of Ganon, the reappearance of the master sword and the unknown whereabouts of Princess Zelda are just some of the interesting approaches of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. I really want to be able to play it now.

It’s been a long time since Pikmin 3Y Miyamoto’s latest statements on the development of a sequel already date back… 6 years! It is a title that has been in development for a long time, but we don’t care if it lives up to the past installments. At the moment, little of the game has really been seen, although it can be glimpsed a really beautiful graphic and artistic section and adapted to the new times. Furthermore, perhaps with the success of Pikmin Bloom, which has already been tested by millions of users, this will become the most successful installment of the series. It will have to be checked.
