There are countless games that many people are looking forward to seeing between now and the first half of 2019. As far as the role playing genre of gaming is concerned one of the many interesting titles to lookout for on the Nintendo Switch is a game developed by Zeboyd Games entitled Cosmic Star Heroine. For those who do not know Cosmic Star Heroine was originally released back in April 2017 for the PlayStation 4 along with Microsoft Windows. The cool thing about this game that stands out the most is the 2D visuals and design.
The graphics and artwork resembles something you would see for the Super Nintendo or the Sega Genesis. Cosmic Star Heroine give players the opportunity to explore three different planets while engaging in turn based combat as they progress throughout the game. As it currently stands CosmicStar Heroine is set to be released next month on August 24th and has the potential to be one of the top RPG titles for the Nintendo Switch this summer.
When we think about the best selling game systems in video game history one of the many consoles that comes to mind is the Nintendo DS. There is no doubt that in terms of sales the Nintendo DS exceeded the expectations of many people since its initial release back in late 2004. Since its release the Nintendo DS has reportedly sold over 152 million units worldwide throughout most of the 00’s and the first half of the 10’s decade. To think that the Nintendo DS has sold more than the likes of the NES, SNES, Nintendo 64 and even the Nintendo Wii is simply mind blowing.
In fact the Nintendo DS was probably the best selling game console in the history of gaming next to the PlayStation 2 which sold nearly 155 million units worldwide. If anything handheld game systems such as the DS played a major role in helping Nintendo compete against Sony during the console wars back in the 00’s and early 10’s. While the DS is one of Nintendo’s best handheld game consoles in terms of sales it’s debatable on whether or not it’s the company’s best gaming device ever.
As the month of June is getting ready to come to a close many people are excited to see Anima: Gate of Memories ported for the Nintendo Switch. For those who do not know Anima: Gate of Memories was an action RPG that was originally released for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One back in 2016. Anima: Gate of Memories is the sequel to Anima: Ark of Sinners which was originally released exclusively for the Nintendo Wii back in 2011. Ever since Gate of Memories appeared on the PS4 and the Xbox One many people have wondered whether or not the Anima Project and Badland games had any plans whatsoever on bringing it to the Nintendo Switch.
In terms on whether or not this game will shine in the Nintendo Switch is debatable. However, Anima: Gates of Memories has everything one can ask for in a action role playing game such as an in depth combat system along with a great story mode where the choices players make heavily affects the overall paths of their respective characters. The Switch version of Anima: Gates if Memories will be available on June 29th and is definitely a title worth checking out if you are a fan of the action role playing genre of gaming.
As many people know Mario Party Switch Big games that Nintendo had announced at E3 2018. There have been many people who have bedeviled waiting for sequel for Mario Party 10 since the game was released for the Nintendo Wii-U back in March 2015. Since its release Mario Party 10 has managed to sell over 2 million units worldwide on the Wii-U. In addition to have great sales it was within the top ten on being one of the best selling games for the Wii-U on general. As cool as Mario Party 10 was for the Nintendo Wii-U it’s sequel looks even more promising.
Based on what we know players will have the chance at least 80 mini games along with having the the option of playing locally or online. One of the most interesting features about Mario Party Switch is that the game can be played one Joy Con per person which can easily provide players with an exciting multiplayer experience. In terms on whether or not Mario Party Switch will sell more than its predecessor is questionable. But seeing how popular the hybrid console had been since March 2017 its possible that Mario Party Switch will surpass Mario Party 10 in terms of sales.
As many of us know Metroid Prime 4 was not at E3 2018 which is something that fans of the Metroid series are probably bummed about in general. Despite, the announcements made last year about Metroid Prime 4 appearing on the Nintendo Switch we have yet to see a reveal trailer or actual footage of the game itself. It’s quite possible that Metroid Prime 4 is still in the early phases of development especially since we still have no idea on what the plot of the game is about.
At this point its unpredictable when Metroid Prime 4 will be released for the Nintendo Switch. When Nintendo released the very first Metroid Prime game it was about nine years after Super Metroid was released for the SNES in 1993. Not only was the original Metroid Prime one of the most highly anticipated titles for the Nintendo GameCube it was one of the best selling games of 2002. When Nintendo had skipped the N64 to release Metroid Prime for GameCube it added to the overall excitement and anticipation for its release. However, seeing how popular the Switch console is it would not make too much sense for Nintendo to release Metroid Prime 4 on a next generation game systems especially since its still new. It’s possible that we might learn more about Metroid Prime 4 in next year’s E3 event.

When it comes down to Nintendo games in general two of the most popular games in the Metroid series that comes to mind are Super Metroid for the SNES and Metroid Prime which came out on GameCube. It’s debatable among many fans of the series on which games was more popular. Super Metroid for the SNES was met with critical acclaim and received strong reviews from various gaming publications such as IGN, Nintendo Life and others as being one of the best 2D action adventure of the 90’s. The visuals, graphics along with the atmosphere of Super Metroid has a lot to do with its appeal.
Metroid Prime which was released exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube back in 2002 was the long awaited sequel of Super Metroid. Since its release Metroid Prime has won a few “Game of the Year” awards from gaming entities such Edge, EGM, GameSpot and Nintendo Power in 2002. If one had to choose between the two games mostly Metroid Prime would have advantage of being a better game all around.
