Games Releasing Next Year

The Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase revealed five interesting games coming to the Switch next year. The first is Bravely Default II, which tells the story of four heroes who embark on a journey and along the way meet new characters while fighting villains.

Next is Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town, which is launching on March 23, 2021. This farm simulation has players decide whether to grow a field of crops, construct a ranch with animal pens, or even both.

By Spring 2021, players are going to have the chance to see if they have what it takes to survive in a post-apocalyptic future. The end of the world is simply the beginning, but with Surviving the Aftermath: Survive, it’s up to you to make the most out of what’s left. By Summer 2021, prepare to try out a deck-building roguelite game in Griftlands: Nintendo Switch Edition. Set in the sci-fi world of Griftlands, players need to be careful as each decision matters.

Finally, sometime in 2021 players get to experience the latest exploits of legendary assassin Travis Touchdown with No More Heroes III.
