Upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons Update

Sure, new content in the game is about a year late and I wanna be mad but they’re bringing The Roost, easily the most requested thing missing from Animal Crossing. The 24/7 coffee shop ran by the beloved Brewster is going to be out soon with more information coming in an Animal Crossing themed Direct in October.

Super Mario Golf’s Next Wave of DLC

Nintendo briefly mentioned the next wave of free DLC for Super Mario Golf including not only two new courses but two new characters in the form of both Koopa Troopa and, in a move that made me lose my mind as a Nintendo head, Ninji. The little chonky ninja boy that first showed up in the American version of Super Mario Brothers 2. I’m going to dust off my copy of this game just to main that lil’ dork.

Disney Magical World 2: Enchanted Edition

I’m sure everyone’s heart dropped when an envelope with a red seal flew into the hands of Mickey Mouse with a voice saying “You’ve been invited!” Luckily, this had absolutely nothing to do with Smash Brothers. This is an upgraded version of the Disney sim that was on the 3DS.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Nintendo Switch has had a weird side hustle of bringing old Star Wars games back to modern gamers and they’re finally doing the one we all wanted to see, Knights of the Old Republic. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like much has improved so it still looks like a bunch of action figures moving around, but I’m still excited to dual-wield sabers again.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human

Announced alongside Dying Light: Platinum Edition, Dying Light 2: Stay Human looks really impressive on the Switch, but this is mostly because you can only play it on a cloud meaning you won’t be able to take this on the go unless you’re going somewhere with REALLY solid internet.
