Blimey, 2020 was a little bit of a slog, wasn’t it? It is unlikely to be remembered as a very bumper yr in mankind’s historical past, what with a worldwide pandemic successfully shutting the complete world down. We have needed to curtail issues we like to do with a purpose to hold folks secure, and many people could have misplaced family members to a virus which, 12 months in the past, wasn’t considered in fairly as dramatic a light-weight.
2021 would not seem like it may be all that completely different – from the place we’re within the UK, a nationwide lockdown has successfully been put in place which implies we’re kicking off the brand new yr in very a lot the identical style as we spent most of 2020 – however there are nonetheless causes to stay cheerful. The earth’s prime boffins have found a vaccine and, fingers crossed, the brand new yr’s message we put up in 12 months will likely be a little extra upbeat.
Anyway, sufficient of all that, let’s take a while to look ahead to 2021. What new video games do you assume we’ll see? How will occasions like E3, Gamescom and PAX pan out this yr? Will Bayonetta 3 lastly see launch, or will we simply be informed that “improvement goes nicely” once more? What number of extra workers will Retro rent to work on Metroid Prime 4? Will the accursed Swap Professional truly materialise?
We’re undecided 2021 has the solutions to all of these questions, however we might wish to take this chance to want all of you a affluent and pleasing yr – and thanks for making Nintendo Life the location it’s at this time. On that subject, it is price declaring that we have had a report yr for visitors throughout the complete Nlife Community – our sister websites Push Sq. and Pure Xbox have loved their greatest ever years, and all three websites racked up a mixed 361,424,293 pageviews over final 12 months – so 2020 wasn’t all unhealthy, we guess.
