Balan Wonderworld Square Enix Sonic the Hedgehog creators Yuji Naka Naoto Ohshima Nintendo Switch 3D platformer 2-player

The Switch is quietly shaping up to have a strong 2021, as we were reminded today when the long-awaited NEO: The World Ends with You was revealed for release next year after a seemingly hopeless years-long wait. At this point, even without relying on potential 2021 Switch titles like the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the system is shaping up to have a great year. It’s tough to choose a single game, but I’m making you do it anyway. What are you most excited to play on Switch in 2021?

At this point, the 3D platformer-fan in me really needs to get his hands on Balan Wonderworld. The game looks absolutely fantastic, like a pure dose of unadulterated 3D platforming goodness. Balan Wonderworld is releasing into a gaming scene where 3D platformers have been back in style for a few years now (and the PS5 launched with two 3D platformers, after all), so it’ll hopefully get all of the attention that it deserves, should it deliver on the hype people are attributing to it. The colorful, exciting title is out next March on Switch, and it’s currently holding way too much of my attention.

What game are you most excited to play on Switch next year? Is it a game that’s actually confirmed for release in 2021, or is it one that you’re hoping against hope manages to sneak in on the next calendar? Let us know in the comments below.
