If the video game news focuses on the release of new consoles at the end of the year, the Nintendo Switch has a say as well with five promising games.
1 # Hyrule Warriors: Age of Scourge (November 20th)
Three years after the immense success of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and since license fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Nintendo has announced a new game: Hyrule Warriors: The Era of the Scourge. The Scourge Era is the second installment in the Hyrule Warriors franchise (the first was released in 2014) and will power the player a hundred years before the events of Breath of the Wild. Play as one of the seven playable characters (Link, Zelda, Daruk, Revali, Mipha, Urbosa and Impa) and repel the hideous creatures of Ganon alone or in pairs. If the tragic result is known to everyone, the game still promises great hours of play!

2 # Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory (November 13)
We told you last June: Square Ennix is releasing a new Kingdom Hearts this year on XBox One, PlayStation 4 and for the first time on Nintendo Switch. However, Melody of Memory will be very different from Kingdom Heats III, which was released in 2019, as it is a rhythm game. Be careful though, this new Kingdom Hearts isn’t a spin-off to ignore. On the contrary, when Kingdom Hearts III closes the first chapter of the saga, Melody of Memory opens the second. In other great news, Yoko Shimomura, the legendary composer of Kingdom Hearts and Legend of Mana, composed 140 songs for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory. What promises long and great hours of play, accompanied by Sora, Goofy and Donald!

3 # Immortal Fenyx Rising (December 3rd)
Immortal Fenyx Rising was developed by Ubisoft and invites the player to immerse himself in an open world of shimmering colors. Play as Fenyx, the winged demigoddess, and protect the gods of Greek mythology from the conquering ambitions of Typhon, the god of storms. An ambitious game that will undoubtedly become the first work of a new major license from Nintendo.

4 # Sakuna of Rice and Ruin (December 31st)
In this dynamic and poetic platform game, the player is invited to play while Sakuna, the goddess of crops, banished from the kingdom of gods, is determined to regain the rank that belongs to her. Above all else, Sakuna Of Rice and Ruin is an opportunity to plunge headlong into Japanese mythology.
