The 30 new games that Nintendo has presented for the first half of 2021
Nintendo has presented a veritable avalanche of novelties that will appear throughout the first half of the year. There are new installments of already known franchises, expansions, news, and although news about ‘Metroid Prime’, ‘Bayonetta’ or other highly anticipated franchises have been missed, there have been enough news to keep the interest. There has hardly been any data, but there have been trailers and dates to write down on the agendas.
