Today Nintendo shared information on upcoming Switch titles via an eight-minute Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase. The presentation focused on Switch games from Nintendo’s development and publishing partners –third-parties essentially.
While fans didn’t get those big first-party reveals that we’ve been waiting for such as Pikmin 4 or the much-rumored Metroid Prime collection, there were still some sweet announcements that shouldn’t go unnoticed. Here’s everything announced during the latest Nintendo Direct Mini.
Cadence of Hyrule DLC (Yay!)
The roguelike rhythm game, Cadence of Hyrule, will be getting three new DLC packs that feature new playable characters, new music tracks, and additional story content.
The first pack is available now but the second and third pack will release before the end of October. There will also be a version of the game launching on Oct 23 that contains all of the added content.
Coincidentally, there will be more info on Rogue Company later today via a Summer Game Fest presentation.
WWE 2K Battlegrounds
If you’re a big wrestling game fan, then you might be excited to know that WWE 2K Battlegrounds is coming to Switch and other platforms on Sep 18, 2020. No new details were shared but it’s coming to Switch and that’s what matters here.
Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne Remaster
Atlus is bringing over a new remaster of Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne to the Switch and PS4.
This cult classic from 2003 will release in the spring of 2021 with improved visuals.
Shin Megami Tensei V
And the last announcement to wrap up the quick presentation was from developer/publisher Atlus. The long-awaited Shin Megami Tensei V will have a simultaneous global launch on Switch in 2021 as an exclusive title. You can watch the new trailer above.
There was no gameplay but at least we have an idea of when to expect it.
