  1. Kirby: Star Allies (Switch) – March 16

“Kirby™ is back—and he’s finally on the Nintendo Switch console in HD! But this time, he’s not alone. Recruit enemies by hitting them with hearts and gather helpers for a party of up to four characters. On top of that, you can join with up to three friends for a different kind of team-up action!”

-Official Nintendo Website

Personal Thoughts:

It’s a Kirby game. Kirby games usually have a track record of being great.

Out of the three games that are on this list, this is the one I am personally excited for:

Hype Rating: 10/10

 

  1. Sea of Thieves (PC, Xbox One) – March 20

“Sea of Thieves is a new type of multiplayer game that delivers all you need to live the free-roaming pirate life. Whether adventuring as a group or sailing solo, you’ll encounter other crews… but will they be friends or foes, and how will you respond?”

-Official Sea of Thieves Website

Personal Thoughts:

Sea of Thieves is a game by Rare. I remember the day they were making games for the N64, like GoldenEye 007, Perfect Dark, Banjo Kazooie, etc. However, nowadays Rare hasn’t kept a great track record when it comes to their games. And, you can only play the game if you have an Xbox One. So…I’m not anticipating this game as much as Kirby: Star Allies. At least Kirby is a first-party IP, so releasing exclusively on the Switch makes sense.

Hype Rating: 6/10

 

  1. MLB The Show 18 (PS4) – March 27

“Your team. Your rivals. Your buddies. Your hometown. No matter why you play or why you love baseball, MLB® The Show 18 is for a fan like you. The Show 18 delivers baseball just the way you want it, from fielding a roster of past Legends and current Superstars in Diamond Dynasty 1, 2, to crushing homers with friends in Retro Mode games to meaningful RPG progression in Road to The Show®. Experience quicker, more satisfying games of baseball to dominate the competition on the couch, on the headset2 and on the diamond. More home runs, more epic plays, more classic legends, all in less time. For those who crave the best of baseball – Welcome to The Show.”

Personal Thoughts:

In all honesty, sports games are sports games. There’s nothing more, nothing less. I mean, if you’re into the sports games, then that’s cool. But personally, unless Mario is partaking in the sport, they aren’t as fun. I recommend either getting a Mario baseball game, or going outside to play baseball yourself (even when you have no friends).

Hype Rating: 2/10 (I’ll be generous)

 

Overall Thoughts:

So far…we’re still relying on last year’s games (like Doki Doki Literature Club) for entertainment. I really hope this Kirby game will fix that. Also, Shadow of the Colossus, which released in February.
