If I were to speculate on which game would dominate a “most excited” poll, my bet would be on Mario RPG

While I remain cautiously optimistic about Super Mario Bros. Wonder (hoping the gimmicks go beyond surface-level), the overwhelmingly positive response to the revival of Super Mario RPG places it securely at the top of the excitement ladder. It’s at the top of my own list as well! Furthermore, the brilliant move to re-release Pikmin 1 and 2 ensures that the entire mainline Pikmin series is now available on a single platform. This has become a hallmark of the Nintendo Switch: a true successor to the 3DS, consolidating both old and new games in one convenient location.

As for Detective Pikachu Returns, it finds itself in an unusual position. It has been years since the film’s release, and I am the only person I know who completed the original Detective Pikachu game from beginning to end. It will be interesting to see how the game performs and whether it receives another colossal amiibo figure.
