A look back at the many Nintendo Switch announcements for the NGPX 2021 Showcase

This second NGPX presented us today at 5 p.m. no less than 36 titles of all styles. They promise us a year compatible with all tastes. As a reminder, the “New Game Plus Expo” is an event highlighting the various releases planned for the current year from the most indie studios. And it is not to displease that everything starts immediately by announcing (or by reminding us) the releases of 7 games given in intro in the space of only 2 minutes. Suffice to say that at this rate, you have to follow to not miss anything. This is how this second part of the “New Game Plus Expo” gives us all these announcements with more or less precise dates ranging from the status of “Already available” to a release scheduled for the second quarter of next year.

The introduction then opens on the first game while reducing the pace and allowing to see a little more of the games presented while adding audio and video comments from the developers on their video games with strong announcements such as ” Guilty Gear Strive ”,“ Disgaea 6 ”,“ Mary Skelter ”, and“ Death end re; Quest ”.

Here is the list of the main announcements planned for the Nintendo Switch:

– We first discover “The Silver Case 2425”. Announced for July 6, 2021 as a port of the remake on Nintendo Switch which is therefore presented as a 2 in 1 pack bringing the license of these adventure visual novels to the Nintendo console.

– The new installment of the Mary Skelter saga arrives on Switch. Mary Skelter Finale gives us an appointment in autumn 2021 on Nintendo Switch and PS4 to dive back into the world of nightmares with a promising and worked presentation animation that promises heavy without showing a single second of gameplay.

– A Flash presentation shows the gameplay of Rico London in action, a fast-paced FPS that promises bullet-times and cell-shading will be released in summer 2021 on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PS5. Enough to find its audience on a large number of media.

– Xenophobia, a pixelated and frenzied neo-retro doom-like who senses calling the speedrunners to challenge will invite you to explore an abandoned and alien-infested spaceship to destroy in hordes in this brutal FPS from August 5, 2021 on all your consoles.

– A new announcement to remember is “Guilty Gear Strive” for June 11, 2021 which will abandon the Switch for the PS4, the PS5 and the PC. We will therefore find directly in images on extracts of gameplay with fluid animations mixed with renderings of different characters. This new component which promises a new type of gameplay, new characters as well as a new “innovative netcode”. This leaves us too little information at the moment on these improvements to really be able to draw our conclusions. But it is the format that this type of event gives us which favors a few images and new titles rather than giving details.

– Loan followed by “Rocky & Rocky Reshrined”, a mix of old-fashioned RPG action and shoot ’em up that reminds us of the “Touhou Project”. Fans of the genre will be delighted to find a new gameplay mechanic that brings these aging games up to date with this remaster.

– In this AmongUs-like solo, you will have to find who was found infected by the “Gnosia” in a Visual Novel with a colorful character design and worked in a metallic and industrial universe of a spaceship. You will be isolated to be wary of all your teammates from March 4, 2021 on Nintendo Switch.

– Already presented during Nintendo Direct on February 17, 2021, “World’s End Club” the new title from the creators of “Danganronpa” sends you fighting for your survival in an apocalyptic world accompanied by your school club from May 28, 2021.

– ConnectTank a dynamic business management game in which you will have to run your domain alone or with others. This trailer reminds us of the Overcooked series and its cooperation system which requires a lot of coordination to succeed. It will be available in summer 2021 on all platforms.

– The advertisement highlighted by this event is “Disgaea 6”. The sequel to the tactical turn-based RPG brings you together with these 4 main characters on June 29, 2021 on Switch only without giving us any real information about the game.

– In this 2D storefront and platform side scrolling, the “Azure Striker GunVolt 3” series will ask you to perform the greatest combos using your katana on Switch available in 2022.

– “Undernauts: Yomi Wo Saku Hana” The Labyrinth RPG from “Experience” studios, already available on Xbox One in Japan, will transport you to a mystical and horrific Japan in which you will slay magical creatures with your team on Nintendo Switch and PS4 in autumn 2021 .

– “Death end re; Quest ”the turn-based RPG with 3D Manga graphics from the“ Idea Factory ”studio will take you to the VR MMORGP“ World’s Odyssey ”in which you will find yourself stuck. To get out of it, only one solution. You will have to get the perfect ending. For that, go to Switch and PS4 on April 27, 2021.

– “Dairoku: Agents of Sakuratani” the Visual Novel already available in Japan is translated and imported in Europe by Idea Factory. The heroine Akitsu Shino has the specificity of seeing ghosts and will find herself recruited by the government in a special section of control of non-human entities. Available from fall 2021.

This is how the NGPX2 closes with its 36 announcements which benefit all tastes. Many independent studios were on hand to offer us their novelties on the Nintendo Switch or other platforms. Some announcements are duplicated with the previous events of the year, but many new features are planned for the years 2021 and 2022 which will certainly push the Switch once again upwards, especially with some titles expected from players such as “Disgaea 6” and “Guilty Gear – Strive”
