Back to the main announcements

From “The Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword HD” to “Animal Crossing: New Horizons”, here’s a look back at the most anticipated announcements…

Timeless Nintendo classics

How to talk about Nintendo without talking about the legendary franchise of “The Legend of Zelda”? The franchise, which will celebrate its 35th anniversary next Sunday, has been talked about a lot during Nintendo Direct. A version optimized for the Switch of the title released on Wii in 2011 “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD” will be available.

This new version will offer an experience of 60 frames per second, as well as improved graphics. This version of Zelda offers two types of controls: by movements to wield Link’s sword and shield like the character in the original game, or manually with new button controls, which allows playing in portable mode or still on a Switch Lite. The game is scheduled for July 16, 2021 and will be accompanied by new Joy-Con in the colors of Hylia’s sword and shield. This news is still accompanied by a small disappointment from fans of the franchise since no news about “Breath of the Wild 2” has been shared, except that new information will be given during the year.

Still on the subject of Nintendo classics, Mario will return on June 25, 2021 as a golfer this time. “Mario Golf Super Rush” will have several local and online multiplayer modes as well as a story mode that allows you to gain experience, which will help improve his statistics during matches while being able to play as a Mii.

The return of bestsellers

It is finally “Splatoon 3” which was unveiled with a trailer which promises battles between Inklings and Octolings with new weapons … Customization options as well as techniques of movement in the forbidden region of the Clabousse region will also be available.

Recall that it is more than 11.9 million copies that the version preceding this one, released in July 2017 on Nintendo Switch, has passed. As for the game that held a lot of people at heart during the first confinement, namely “Animal Crossing: New Horizons”, it will celebrate the 35 years of “Super Mario Bros. »With new objects (blocks, mushrooms, pipes…) which allow you to cross your island in the blink of an eye. This update will be available on February 25, and items will then be available on March 1.

Another update coming soon will be the one for “Hyrule Warriors: Age of the Scourge” which will be equipped with additional content via an Expansion Pass on the eShop. New characters, stages, challenges, weapon types and abilities for existing characters will be available. These updates will be done in two waves: a first in June and a second in November.
