Freedom Planet 2

Developer: Galaxy Trail
Publisher: Galaxy Trail
Platforms: PC
Release: 2019

Freedom Planet was really a work of passion from development studio Galaxy Trail. Originally starting out as Sonic the Hedgehog fan game the title was reworked to become its own IP. As a result, it still retained the fast-paced platforming gameplay that the Sonic franchise is known for but reworked to feature unique characters along with its own story.
With its success, the development studio had decided to bring out a sequel, Freedom Planet 2 which will follow two years after the events of the first title. This time around our protagonists, Lilac, Carol and Milla along with the once rival enemy Neera must fight off a new hostility. With the world in peril, players must defeat the new ancient enemy.
So far the game seems to only be releasing on the PC platform at the moment but it would be interesting to see if the development studio decided to also release it on consoles such as the Nintendo Switch.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Developer: Moon Studios
Publisher: Microsoft Studios
Platforms: PC, XBO
Release: 2019

Coming off the highly successful Ori and the Blind Forest video game release, development studio is hard at work preparing for their next big video game release, Ori and the Will of the Wisps. The game will still be a platform adventure title with Metroidvania elements throughout where players will need to find new abilities in order to reach new platforms and areas previously unattainable.
Besides platforming and puzzle solving, Ori and the Will of the Wisps will follow a story journey where players will attempt to uncover the secrets behind the lost ones.

Yoshi’s Crafted World

Developer: Good-Feel
Publisher: Nintendo
Platforms: NS
Release: 2019

Yoshi’s Crafted World was teased for a short while now and it appears that we’re going to see this game release into the market for the Nintendo Switch within the Spring season of 2019. For those unfamiliar with the game, this is a brand new Yoshi title that still contains the side-scrolling platforming gameplay that the franchise is known for. Similar to the Paper Mario series, Yoshi’s Crafted World will see our favorite dinosaur fighting off Shy Guys and other hostilities in a construction paper style world.
Within this game, players will still have to swallow enemies and turn them to eggs in order to destroy them but there’s one slight unique twist into this installment. This game will have players go through levels twice where Yoshi can flip the level world around revealing a whole different side full of other puzzles and collectibles that were previously unavailable or only capable of being solved by viewing the level from a particular viewpoint.
While we are still waiting on more details to be released or footage to be shown off, there is one other aspect of the game and that’s players can go through the game cooperatively. So far it seems that the game will be available for a two-player co-op but again, we’re waiting for more information to be showcased. Since we have a while before the game launches, Nintendo has plenty of time to alert gamers of new details of this upcoming game.

New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe

Developer: Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo
Platforms: NS
Release: 2019

During the September Nintendo Direct, the video game industry giant unveiled that New Super Mario Bros. would see a new release on the Nintendo Switch. The original New Super Mario Bros video game titles were a hit when they released on the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo Wii. Since the Nintendo Switch is bringing in plenty of new adopters regularly, Nintendo is dusting off their catalog of video game titles available and giving it a new coat of paint along with some additional features.
New Super Mario Bros. Deluxe is bringing back the Wii title release for the Nintendo Switch while also adding in two new characters. The new characters are Nabbit who will not take any damage against enemies and Toadette who can transform into Peachette with special abilities such as a double jump or slowly falls.
That’s not all, as this game will also include the New Super Luigi U. This means that the Nintendo Switch has two classic platformers coming in one bundle in 2019. This is something that should hopefully hold gamers over until the next Mario featured title releases into the market.

Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn

Developer: Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo
Platforms: 3DS
Release: 2019

The Nintendo 3DS may be on the way out the door, but Nintendo is still throwing owners of the portable handheld some video games in 2019. Now obviously Nintendo is focusing more on their latest hybrid console, the Nintendo Switch, but one of the video game titles that Nintendo is bringing out for the 3DS in 2019 is Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn. This is a port of a Nintendo Wii title that went under the name Kirby’s Epic Yarn where players took Kirby on a new adventure that is heavily influenced on creating platforms and solving puzzles.
This particular port adds a few new features into the game such as new playable characters like Meta Knight, additional game modes and minigames. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many details regarding the game at the time of writing this but we can expect it to release on the Nintendo 3DS at some point in 2019.
Regardless of the lack of new information, we do know that this is a platformer that was previously available on the Nintendo Wii back in 2010 where again as mentioned, follows Kirby after he was turned into a ball of yarn. This was a well-received video game when it launched originally and if you didn’t pick up a copy on the Wii then it’s likely going to be well worth investing the money to enjoy it portably.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Developer: ArtPlay, DICO
Publisher: 505 Games
Platforms: PC, PS4, PSV, Switch, XBO
Release: 2018

Led by former Castlevania series producer, Koji Igarashi, comes the upcoming action-adventure game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The video game is in the style of Metroidvania as you explore, craft new weapons, and of course, find new armor. The video game will follow an orphan named Miriam who has been cursed by an alchemist which is slowly turning her skin into crystal. In order to stop the curse, she must explore a castle to find the summoner of this curse, Gebel, who as it turns out had suffered the same condition.
Luckily, the video game is coming out for a number of different platforms so you should have no trouble getting the chance to enjoy the video game once it launches hopefully sometime this year as it’s appearing to be a solid platformer especially if you already enjoyed the companion game released already called Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon.
