#10 Paper Mario: The Origami King

  • Developer: Intelligent Systems
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: July 17, 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

The Paper Mario franchise is going to receive a new installment this year. In Paper Mario: The Origami King, Paper Mario is having to face against King Olly. After an attack has left the kingdom in ruins from King Olly folding the area to bits and stealing Princess Peach, Mario is out to save the day once again. However, Mario won’t be by himself as he will have help from King Olly’s sister, Olivia.

That’s not all, even Bowser is teaming up after King Olly has taken control of his minions. There will even be some new abilities Mario will have at his disposal thanks to the new Origami techniques. For instance, Mario will have the 1,000-Fold Arms ability for starters which will give players the chance to stretch your arms out further to deal more damage or complete puzzles. You can embark on his new quest with Mario on July 17, 2020, when it launches exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

#9 Gods & Monsters
  • Developer: Ubisoft
  • Publisher: Ubisoft
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: TBA

During E3 2019 Ubisoft took to the stage during their press briefing. It was during this briefing that we got the first reveal of a brand new IP, Gods & Monsters. We only got a small trailer but this is from the same development team that previously worked on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. For now, it looks like the development team wanted to stick with the deep lore of Greek mythology with an open world for players to explore. Speaking of the world, another aspect that gamers are quickly comparing this title to is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The upcoming title does look to have taken some aesthetic cues from the Nintendo exclusive but we’re not sure if this game will top the installment when it launches.

In terms of the story, Gods & Monsters will follow a hero who must save the gods. After the gods were fallen to Typhon, the hero was granted special powers in hopes that the player can maneuver through the world and defeat the monsters that flood the environments. For now, all we have is a cinematic trailer to the game so we’re having to wait until some gameplay footage is released into the public in order to see just how the mechanics will handle.

#8 Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise
  • Developer: Toybox
  • Publisher: Rising Star Games
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Do you recall Deadly Premonition? It w as a video game released back in 2010 and while it wasn’t a massive success, it grew a cult following. A lot of people compared to the game to Twin Peaks and felt that if the famed director and co-creator of the show, David Lynch, would have made the show into a game then that’s what Deadly Premonition would have been. This was a third-person survival horror game that followed a young FBI agent into a small town due to a strange murder case. Players are then introduced to this offbeat town where its clear that supernatural entities are at play.

During the September 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation, it was unveiled that not only will Nintendo Switch players receive a port of the game through the online market place but a sequel was inbound. We don’t have a ton of information now, but we do know that the story follows a young FBI agent named Aaliyah Davis who reopens an old investigation that takes her to the original protagonist, Francis York Morgan.

#7 No More Heroes 3
  • Developer: Grasshopper Manufacture
  • Publisher: Marvelous
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

Set two years after the events of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes comes to No More Heroes III. The video game will retain the hack-and-slash the series is known for while featuring our protagonist Travis Touchdown. It seems that a new threat has emerged leaving Travis to stop an alien invasion and save humanity.

This will also mark ten years since the release of No More Heroes II so we’re expecting plenty of gamers interested in picking up the title, though, with such a large gap, we’re wondering if the development team has kept in-mind for newcomers.

#6 Doom Eternal 

  • Developer: id Software
  • Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO, NS, Google Stadia
  • Release: 2020
  • Co-op: N/A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes 

Who doesn’t love Doom? It’s a video game franchise that has been around for years and while we had a short spurt of time where we didn’t really get anything from the franchise, id Software changed things around by bringing out a 2016 remake. Doom was an instant hit as it brought back the action-packed gameplay as you step into the shoes of Doom Slayer taking out demon scum. Now that you’re likely already done with the remake, you might have adverted your attention to its sequel, Doom Eternal. This installment will follow the events of the 2016 Doom remake where demons have invaded Earth. It’s now your job to save humanity by any means necessary.

This time around you’ll have new but familiar scenery to roam as you attempt to take out the otherworldly creatures flocking the planet. There’s even a game mode attached called Invasion where an online player could join into your campaign as one of the demons in hopes of taking you out. This will add a nice little layer of complexity as you can never be too sure just where you may run into a tough battle. Of course, this mode can be turned off and you’ll be able to enjoy the game without the sudden random player appearance.
