We’re also getting another Wii U port, and it’s a good one: new Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe is set for release on January 11, 2019. The quirky Katamari franchise is coming to the Switch, too: Katamari Damacy Reroll will be released via eShop on November 30, with a physical edition to follow later in the year.
If you’re a Final Fantasy fan, then the coming months will be awesome since a bunch of classic games are getting ported. Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD is available now, World of Final Fantasy Maxima is coming November 6, Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon arrives this winter, and coming in 2019 are Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, Final Fantasy X, and Final Fantasy X-2.
Fans have been curious about the Switch’s online system ahead of its launch, and yesterday brought news on that front. One feature is cloud saves, which will back up your saved games online automatically. Most games will be supported, but a few won’t, including Splatoon 2, Pokémon: Let’s Go! Eevee and Pikachu!, NBA 2K19, FIFA 19, and Dark Souls Remastered. And Nintendo confirmed some of the NES games that will be playable on it. There will be 20 in total to start, and joining the previously announced titles are Ghosts ’n Goblins, Excitebike, Tecmo Bowl, Yoshi, Double Dragon, Gradius, Ice Hockey. River City Ransom, Pro Wrestling, and Baseball.
If you still don’t have a Switch (or maybe need an additional one), you now have some enticing new options. Nintendo recently announced a Pokémon: Let’s Go!-themed Switch bundle, and another one is on the way: A Super Smash Bros. Ultimate limited edition Switch bundle is coming, and aside from the console itself, it includes special Joy-Cons, a dock with various characters on it, and a digital copy of the game.
