Metroid Prime Remastered

Release date: March 3

2023 heralds the release of a new Metroid game. Although perhaps not the sequel fans were hoping for, Metroid Prime Remastered offers a welcome return to a much-loved world as you follow bounty hunter Samus Aran through the eerie biomes of Tallon IV.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

The sequel to one of the most beloved games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom continues the adventure set up in Breath of the Wild.

Pikmin 4

Release date: July 21

The cute little plant fellas are back in Pikmin 4 and, with the addition of a new dog companion, this is one instalment you don’t want to miss. Guide the Pikmin across a new world using their various colour-coded abilities to explore and survive a strange planet.

Hollow Knight: Silksong

Release date: 2023

Another highly anticipated sequel is set to debut on the Nintendo Switch in 2023 as Hollow Knight: Silksong, hopefully, finally arrives. As Hornet the princess knight of Hallownest, you are gifted brand new abilities to help you on your journey through the kingdom, engaging in acrobatic combat and uncovering new mysteries and secrets.

A release date hasn’t been confirmed for Hollow Knight: Silksong, but at the Xbox showcase it was announced the sequel was targeting a 2023 release.

Oxenfree II: Lost Signals

Release date: 2023

It’s a good year for long-awaited sequels with the release of the Oxenfree follow-up also expected in 2023.

Oxenfree II: Lost Signals takes place five years after the events of the first story and sees Riley return to her hometown of Camena to investigate mysterious radio signals.

The Plucky Squire

Release date: 2023

Based on the trailer alone The Plucky Squire looks like a must-play. The game is a blend of 2D and 3D animation and follows storybook characters outside the pages of their book as they attempt to save their friends. Here’s hoping this one sticks to its 2023 release date because it will be a sad year without it.
