Finally coming to Switch after launching on other platforms many moons ago, this collection features some of the best games in the entire Assassin’s Creed series (Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood) and take you back (back) to 15th century Renaissance Italy to snicker unsuspecting folks with these cool wrist-bladed tricks.
We remember playing them back in the day and marveling at the intricacies of Ubisoft’s recreation of Venice. The Switch version also gets HD Rumble and a few other minor perks. One to watch.
On March 4, Square Enix will release Triangle Strategy, the sequel to the highly acclaimed Octopath Traveler. In addition to the standard physical version, a special Tactician limited edition is available which includes the game, six custom dice, a deck of playing cards, a SteelBook, a double-sided poster, and a collector’s box!
We kinda like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe around these parts, but despite its brilliance, we’re definitely on the hunt for some new kart content. Enter Square Enix Final Fantasy Chocobo GP kart racer.
This Switch exclusive will feature a bunch of courses in and around locations from the Final Fantasy series, with a story mode, 64-player knockout tournaments, time attacks, and various other modes you’d expect to see in a game. kart racer.
Sounds like a ticket, at least while waiting for a “Mario Kart 9” announcement.
The latest game in the sword-filled life simulation RPG series (the first release was literally subtitled “A Fantasy Harvest Moon”), we’ll soon be diving into some of that wholesome farming and flaying gameplay of demons for which the series is known.
Rune Factory 5 has been released in Japan since May 2021 and we’re waiting to see how the localized game holds up. Because, as you can see, we have plenty of time and absolutely no other premium games to play in March. Hey, that’s a good problem to have!
Later in the month, we are treated to the latest installment in the Kirby franchise. In Kirby and the Forgotten Land, our favorite pink blob embarks on an intriguing new adventure for the series, ditching the usual 2D platforming for an epic 3D action adventure.
