Nintendo is going to release Fire Emblem Engage in January. The game is already garnering much excitement thanks to it being the series’ triumphant return to its original ideas. Gameplay mechanics such as perma-death and choices that actually change the game make a return.

After that Switch owners would get to play that new Bayonetta spin-off announced by Nintendo recently. The game is called Bayonetta Origins, and the previews say that the game has a very similar feeling to Okami.

The biggest game that Nintendo is gearing up for is The Legend of Zelda Tears of the kingdom. The game would be launched in maybe 2023 and it can even be termed the biggest launch of 2023. As everyone knows, when a Zelda game launches there’s hardly a game that can compete with it.

As fans are super hyped for the above-mentioned games, there are rumors that a game that has been in development for a very long time might also see the light of day in 2023.

Yes, we are indeed talking about Metroid prime 4. The game’s development was started at retro studios back in 202, so we are hopeful it has progressed enough by now. Now with all these games coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console in 2023, some fans wonder what other games Nintendo might be working on.

Fans want a lot more to release on Switch in the future!

And one Tweet from The Game awards ignited a flame. They tweeted asking fans to name a forgotten franchise and that Nintendo should bring back some of the franchises that even the developer/publisher has forgotten about.

The replies to this tweet ranged from some very exciting gamers wanting Star fox to frustrated fans wanting Kid Icarus. But one thing is clear as day, fans are really passionate about some of these games.
