8 Surprise Announcements That Would Shake-Up 2021

As the opening days of 2021 drift past us and we look over the horizon, much is still unclear when it comes to the industry’s state. A surprise announcement could be right around the corner, and it’s just a matter of time.

One of the best things about this industry is waking up in the morning and seeing that a trailer has dropped for a game we’ve been waiting to see for a long time.

Developers and the industry as a whole are full of surprises, and we have high hopes for 2021. There’s a lot we want to see, but we complied the biggest wishes onto this list.

These are the surprise announcements we want to see in 2021.

Star Fox Revival

Since its release in 2017, numerous Nintendo franchises have made their way onto the Switch. Many of these franchises like The Legend of Zelda, Mario, Fire Emblem, and Animal Crossing have gained record numbered sales.

While these series celebrate their popularity, some franchises are missing from Nintendo’s powerhouse console. One of those franchises is Star Fox.

Star Fox, while incredibly popular, hasn’t sold all that well. At least not in comparison to other Nintendo IPs. The series sales have steadily declined since the series peaked in 1997 with Star Fox 64.

The latest game in the series, Star Fox Zero, sold less than half a million copies. According to Daniel Ahmad, an industry analyst, the game wasn’t profitable for Nintendo at all.

The thing with Star Fox games is that the series hasn’t progressed much, especially story-wise. The first game’s story has essentially been retold twice with Star Fox 64 and Star Fox Zero.

In spite of all these challenges, though, a new game would come as a major shock and would be welcomed by many.
