Upcoming Retro Nintendo Switch Games of Note (End of May, 2021)

The Nintendo Switch in many ways is a pretty good "retro" console with a nice mix of old and new games. May is almost over but there are definitely still some games coming out out to keep a close eye on...

May 20, 2021/May 24, 2021:

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster 

SMT III: Nocturne was a pretty awesome game on the PS2 so I'm definitely looking forward to playing it again on the Switch. The game is $49.99 right now in pre-order status and the digital deluxe version is $69.99. The deluxe version releases on the 20th while you'll have to wait until the 24th if you are buying the regular version.

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers

EDF games are almost always fun and I think this one may be a potential sleeper hit especially with the "Lego block" aesthetic. While it is a "new" game it heavily relies on retro and vintage games for the inspiration. It looks to be similar to previous EDF Multi-player shooters but this time it's based in a parallel universe where the world is made of blocks. $59.99 might be worth it for this potentially awesome game.

Wonder Boy Asha in Monster World

It doesn't get much more retro than the platforming adventures of Wonder Boy. While the series has always been hit or miss quality-wise this one looks pretty good from previews. in essence this is a Remastered version of Wonder Boy IV. I'm not sure if it's worth the entry free of $34.99 but I'm sure it will go on sale at some point.
