As 2022 comes to a close, we’re starting to look forward to next year. 2023 is looking like a huge year for games and that’s in no small part thanks to Nintendo. We want to know: what’s your most anticipated game of next year?

The choice for many will likely be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Still, it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and there are other games to look forward to. Nintendo alone has already confirmed Fire Emblem Engage, Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon, Pikmin 4, and Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe. Third-parties will chip in with titles like Octopath Traveler II, Atelier Ryza 3, Hogwarts Legacy, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line, Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake, Digimon World: Next Order, and Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection – just to name a few.

So tell us, which game are you most looking forward to in 2023? If you can’t decide on just one, let us know what you’re really excited about in the comments.

Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion review

System: Switch
Release Date: December 13, 2022
Developer: Square Enix / Tose
Publisher: Square Enix

In the 25 years since Final Fantasy VII originally graced PlayStations around the world, this monumental RPG has amassed a legacy that few other games have, and has fittingly been rereleased on a wide range of platforms; it is still, even today, the best-selling entry in the Final Fantasy series of all time. The same can’t quite be said for its many spin-offs, which have typically been trapped on their original systems, but that changes with the launch of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion. Once a PSP-exclusive, this action-combat title serves as a comprehensive prequel to the events of the original game, and its remastered version attempts to bring the visuals closer to the style of the recent Final Fantasy VII Remake. But how does this enhanced version of a 15-year-old game hold up on Switch?

2022 is just about over – aside from a couple of more weeks. But with the year drawing to a close, we’re interested in hearing about what your favorite game that released over the past twelve months.

Despite being in its fifth year, Switch still had much to offer. Looking strictly at what we saw from Nintendo, the company published Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Triangle Strategy, Nintendo Switch Sports, Kirby’s Dream Buffet, Mario Strikers: Battle League, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, Live A Live, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Splatoon 3, Bayonetta 3, and Pokemon Scarlet / Violet. Third-parties filled in with titles such as Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, Digimon Survive, Shovel Knight Dig, Tinykin, Tunic, AI: The Somnium Files – nirvanA Initiative, Sonic Frontiers, and Dragon Quest Treasures. We’d also be remiss if we didn’t mention ports such as Persona 5, NieR: Automata, Portal, Tactics Ogre: Reborn, and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim.

So what was your favorite game that came out in 2022? Let us know in the comments below.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 missed out on Game of the Year, but Nintendo did pick up some other awards. You can find the full list here.

With a completely different open-world and open-choice approach to the longstanding and rather traditional series formula, the new games aren’t afraid to break the mold. How does this completely different take on Pokemon work out for the modern player, not to mention series veterans that have been around since before Pokemon GO took the world by storm? Diving into our own journey across Paldea, what will we find? As always, a world where dreams, adventure, and friendships await, of course.

A new month started up this week. Now that we’re in December, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Are you going through Pokemon Scarlet or Poekmon Violet? Maybe you’re playing through other recent releases like Sonic Frontiers or Tactics Ogre: Reborn? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.
