The Game Awards tend to be a bit different than the typical awards show. Rather than just focusing on the awards themselves, the event is also known for offering up a look at what’s to come in the future. We get to see new looks at games, new trailers, and new announcements.

Nintendo does have an extensive history at The Game Awards. They were right there at the beginning in 2014 by having Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma demonstrate Zelda: Breath of the Wild with off-screen footage, and that’s continued in later years. We’ve seen the announcements of Bayonetta 3 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and more.

You can probably expect Nintendo to show up in one form or another at The Game Awards 2020. The big question, of course, is what the company will actually be presenting? Could we get a new look at Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2? Will Bayonetta 3 resurface? Perhaps something brand new will be announced. Share your predictions with us – or at least what you personally hope to see – in the comments below.

Square Enix has just announced Neo: The World Ends With You, a follow-up to the original The World Ends with You. A release is planned for Summer 2021 worldwide on Switch.

Capcom has not one, but two Monster Hunter games for Switch. Along with Monster Hunter Rise, fans can also look forward to Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

Right now, the only way to play Monster Hunter Stories on a dedicated system is on 3DS. Some fans were hoping that Capcom might consider porting over the original title before playing the new entry. Unfortunately though, that won’t be happening.

Capcom’s Ryozo Tsujimoto told Gamereactor:

This week’s issue of Famitsu contains an interview with key members of the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity team. Producer Yosuke Hayashi and director Ryouta Matsushita as well as Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma answered a few questions about the new Switch game.

Famitsu asked about a few topics, including why a new Hyrule Warriors game was made themed after Breath of the Wild and whether Aonuma had any specific requests for the project. The magazine also asked about whether certain elements had already been established when it came to the characters and story.
