New Nintendo Switch games released in January 2022
League of Legends: Will Wild Rift arrive on consoles in 2022?
2021 has been a big game for the Nintendo Switch. With releases like Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Monster Hunter Rise, and Metroid Dread to name a few, it’s clear why the Switch was one of the hottest consoles of the holiday season. year.
Whether you already own one or have unwrapped a new one under the tree this year, there are plenty more reasons to be excited; Breath of the Wild 2, Splatoon 3, Mario + Raving Rabbids Sparks of Hope are just a few of the games we can expect in 2022. But first, we’re off to a good start – with the release of Pokemon Legends Arceus.
Pokemon Legends Arceus takes us to the ancient region of Hisui, the Sinnoh of yesteryear. You arrive in this majestic land with the task of studying Pokemon and building the region’s first Pokedex. Pokemon Legends Arceus takes place long before the events of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, providing a unique opportunity to explore the early days of what would eventually become the Sinnoh region. Pokemon Legends Arceus combines action and exploration gameplay with the core RPG roots of the Pokemon series as you embark on fact-finding missions across this ancient region to study Pokemon and learn their behavior.
Pokemon Legends Arceus is by far the biggest title released on Nintendo Switch in January, but there are quite a few gems to come next month as well. Astroneer is a charming independent adventure in which you explore and reshape distant worlds across the universe. As a space nerd, the idea of ââexploring the frontier with up to four other players in drop-in / drop-out co-op is pretty exciting.
