After the major Zelda and Mario releases in 2017, what’s next for the Switch console? Expect new entries for Kirby, Yoshi and, perhaps best of all, Pokémon. Nintendo might also add a web browser to the console. There will likely be a Nintendo 64 mini console later this year, too.
Beyond Forza Motorsport 7, Xbox One X hasn’t had too many elite games yet. That could change with Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Sure to bring in fans of all ages, the adventure game has incredible visuals and is challenging to play. And Minecraft will keep chugging along with feature-filled updates.
Sony probably won’t announce the PlayStation 5 this year, but we know it’s in development. That means PS4 games are still king for now. Dreams, from the makers of LittleBigPlanet, is the year’s most anticipated game — and the most beautiful. You’ll be able to create and share your own videogame visions. The concept: If you can imagine it, you can create it.
Plus, there’s an open-world Spider-Man game set in the nooks and crannies of New York City.
For the Lego series, you’ll likely get a new Star Wars game based on The Last Jedi. It will have many characters, along with little trading cards that explain who’s who (just like in 2017’s Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 game).
