  • I thought this was for the games coming now on the latter half of 2021, not for all the anticipated.



  • @sentinel-beach Personally, there are very few games that are hard confirmed to reach this year, and some are hoping to make it. I just prefer to give my full list, regardless of date, and it's been some time since there's been an Anticipated topic thread.



  • (Can't wait!!!) 12 Minutes
    (Can't wait!!!) Kena: Bridge of Spirits
    Phyconauts 2
    GotG
    Life is Strange: True Colors

    From the E3 showings with the release date of 2021.



  • @bam541
    That's right it's the cross over no one saw coming Link in Space and Samus in a FPS adventure on Hyrule.



  • In terms of games coming out this year, I'm hopeful about Infinite's campaign (but not the multiplayer). I also love how the Mario Party remake looks, but I played them to death back in the day...



  • My 5 most anticipated for the second half of 2021:

    Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin (7/9)
    Kena: Bridge of Spirits (8/24)
    Psychonauts 2 (8/25)
    Horizon Forbidden West (Q4 2021)
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge (2021)



  • @shoulderguy

    Last two are definitely on my radar too. Hopefully TMNT is nothing more than 20-30 bucks or better yet included in the Gamepass day one!

    Also do we know that we should play the first Psychonauts first or we will be just fine going into second one without it?

  • Metroid Dread is the biggest E3 announcement in so many years for me.

    I'm unbelievably excited for that game. Samus Returns on 3DS was surprisingly one of the absolute best Metroid games ever made so I have a lot of confidence in this one.

    If Dragon Quest 3 remake comes out this year, that's way up there too. DQ3 was my first RPG and has such a special place in my heart.



  • Metroid Dread and Metal Slug Tactics.

    Completely surprised by those two announcements.



  • Metroid Dread and SMT V are way above everything else.

    Mario Golf Super Rush is a day 1 for me. I love arcade golf games. So good for beers and multiplayer.

    Warioware and Advance Tactics look good but I'm not sure I would pay full price for either. Hopefully it's legit Warioware and not the joke that was Game and Wario.



  • Youtube Video

    I'm 100% with most of what Kyle says, particularly about Metroid.



  • To be honest, my most anticipated is probably Lost Judgment. RGG Studio is to me what From is for others, and I get like at least a game a year from them!
    After that, probably Kena, and Shin Megami Tensei V, A Plague Tale, Lemnis Gate, Inscryption, and Solar Ash.



  • Deathloop and Dying light 2.



  • Sifu
    Kena
    No More Heroes III
    Lost Soul Aside



  • @brawlman I totally forgot about Sifu! I hope it actually comes out this year, it looks sick af.



  • Talking purely about confirmed 2021 releases, here's my most anticipated:

    DAY ONE

    The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles
    Metroid Dread
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge
    Mario Party Superstars

  • @axel Need to see more 12 Minutes and Deathloop is so funny to me. Feels like those games have been shown to death, no pun intended.



  • @mbun Yeah true! Yet I still can't really picture how these games will play. I guess the category should be called "Intrigued, but not yet convinced" :)
