Games I’m looking forward to in 2019: Part 1

I’m sorry, the original post was written in Swedish. So here is comes once again, but with some added stuff. Some of the stuff in the Swedish post has been released, another one has finally gotten a release date. So I thought it was about time to update it. And with E3 around the corner, I’m looking forward to see how many games I can add in an upcoming list. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
 

Trails of Cold Steel II

Release: 2019-06-07 | Buying for: PlayStation 4

I really enjoyed the first Trails of Cold Steel game, so naturally I need to have the second game. Not too far from releasing, really looking forward to this one.
Right now I’m saving myself from playing any JRPG’s just because I want to be JRPG rested and fresh for Cold Steel 2. The first one ended on such a cliffhanger so I really want to know what happens!
 

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Release: 2019-06-28 | Buying for: PlayStation 4 & Nintendo Switch

I’ve had this game on just about every list of games I’m looking forward to, in the last 3-4 years. But now it’s coming to an end! The game finally has a release date and it’s coming very soon! For PS4, Xbox One and PC it will be released on June 21 and it will be released a week later on Switch. I’ve been waiting so long for this game, I’ve always had faith in it. Let’s hope that faith is rewarded. The next post I make with Bloodstained will probably when I either get my copy or my Kickstarter copy of the game.
 

Dragon Quest Builders 2

Release: 2019-07-12 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

This is also a title that has been featured in a few other game’s I’m looking forward to lists. I am not a fan of Minecraft but I really enjoyed Dragon Quest Builders, so when they announced the sequel I was ecstatic. Especially when there are so many improvements in the game, I’m gonna have a really good time on this game. And since I’m getting the Switch version I’ll be able to play this game together with my friends in the same room! Couch co-op is the best! The PS4 version will only have multiplayer online, while Switch will have local multiplayer.
 

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

Release: 2019-07-18 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

I’ve never played the older Ultimate Alliance games, but I’m ready to give this one a try! I need to have more of my Marvel fill, so I’m hoping this will be good.
I’m not particularly hyped for it and I could have waited for it, but yeah this will probably be my chance game of the year. So far at least.
 

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Release: 2019-07-29 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Not really a big fan of SRPG’s, but I’d like to give Fire Emblem a real chance. So why not try this one? If I don’t like it I can always sell it again, but I think it looks at least a bit interesting. At least enough to give it a try.
 

Astral Chain

Release: 2019-08-30 | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Probably the biggest surprise for me so far this year! When we where first shown the trailer, I got butterflies in my stomach. The art style, scenery and the feeling about everything… I and many others thought it was a Xenoblade sequel.
But it turned out to be PlatinumGames new and exclusive Nintendo Switch game, which was still a great surprise. PlatinumGames are great with action games, so I think it will be fantastic. Really looking forward to this one!
 

Dusk Diver

Release: 2019-??-?? | Buying for: Nintendo Switch

Saw a trailer for this game some time ago and it looked pretty neat. It’s an action RPG, that takes place in Taipei apparently. I liked what I saw of the trailer, it was recently announced to be released in both Europe and US both physically and digitally.
I don’t really know what more to say about this game, go check out the trailer for yourselves. The game will be released on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in the west.
 

Well that’s it for this time! Will probably make a new list after E3 is over, when we hopefully have some more dates on a couple of games.
And hopefully some surprise announcements.
