2019 is here & with it will come some believable games for sure so why not pick out the top 5 I’m looking forward to. Here we go.
Killer Instinct on the XBox One not only proved Microsoft could breath new live into one of Rare’s most beloved franchises but unlike, say Perfect Dark Zero, Killer Instinct X felt like a true rebirth for the franchise & with Battletoads, Microsoft have the chance to do that all over again. It won’t be easy but the potential for a brand new, 3D Battletoads is off the scale.
While the Let’s Go titles might have split the fan base, Pokémon Switch promises to deliver a classic Pokémon experience alongside the best visuals in the series to date, a companion sure to please all us veteran trainers who have waited so long to see a fully fledged Pokémon title on home consoles. Or a hybrid one as some of you prefer.
Resident Evil 2.
Few series have had the ups & downs of Resident Evil, shifting senselessly between master piece (Resident Evil Remake) & dumpster fire (Resident Evil 6) from iteration to iteration. Resident Evil 2 meanwhile has remained the franchise’s darling, bridging the gap between action & horror in a way no other Resident Evil has been able to since. Resident Evil 2 Remake then has its work cut-out for it, however if Capcom can get this right we’ll have a great Resident Evil game on our hands.
Developers CD Projekt have done something amazing in building the Witcher series up from cult PC classic to AAA block buster, & this year they’re looking to go beyond even what Geralt of Rivia has achieved with Cyberpunk 2077, a game more than 6 year & counting in development, & with more money behind it than anything CD Projekt have ever produced. Simply put, the potential for Cyberpunk 2077 is off the scale.
The Metal Gear series is in limbo, & realistically may never reached the heights the series saw with Metal Gear Solid or Snake Eater again, thankfully a number of the minds who made the Metal Gear series have found their way over to SquareEnix & are now working on Left Alive, a brand new franchise set in the Front Mission universe, one that looks remarkably like an MGS game, now all it needs to do is nail the story and gameplay & we’ll have a new classic on our hands.
