New rumors point to a stealth action-adventure game being ported over to the Nintendo Switch. The game Republique was spotted directly on Nintendo's website, meaning it could show up on the hybrid console shortly.
Republique is a successfully Kickstarted game that first dropped on iOS in 2013 as a 5-part episodic series. While many gamers enjoy mobile gaming, Republique has since been ported to multiple other platforms, including VR, PS4, and Stadia; Nintendo Switch could be next.
While the page is now dead on Nintendo's official site, fans initially noticed an entire page dedicated to Republique. The fact that it is now down indicates that it likely went up too early. Before the page went down, the information claimed that Republique would cost $9.99 USD and be released on February 25, 2021. If true, Republique would be a great addition to the list of solid indie titles on the Nintendo Switch.
For a game that started out as an iOS title, Republique has ported over to consoles very well. It is likely that specifically, the Republique Remastered version will be what the Switch sees, if the rumors are true, which reviewed nicely. All 5 episodes are packed into one experience and the game was upgraded to work well as a console title. Additionally, the game has some nice talent behind it, including voice actor David Hayter, best known as the man behind the iconic Solid Snake of Metal Gear Solid.
According to Game Rant's review of Republique Remastered in 2016, the title knows its own limits and doesn't try to be an AAA title. And if the rumors are true, $9.99 seems like a decent price for a stealth-based and tightly-wound dramatic action game for Switch players.
The Legend of Zelda is perhaps Nintendo's most treasured franchise. While Mario is certainly the mascot, Pokemon sells incredibly well, and other series like Super Smash Bros. or Animal Crossing have massive followings, it is The Legend of Zelda that seems to hold an important place in the hearts of fans, and even Nintendo itself.
2021 is set to be an intriguing year for Link, Zelda, and the crew of Hyrule. Of course, many are anticipating the possible release of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but that has not yet been confirmed. However, thanks to Nintendo's handling of The Legend of Zelda over the past few years—and even specifically on the Switch—it is plausible that 2021 could see HD remakes, new Zelda ideas, more third-party Zelda titles, and more. All of this is especially true given that 2021 is the franchise's 35th anniversary.
Before the well-received The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD on the Wii U, fans spent years clamoring for HD remakes, re-releases, and remasters of Zelda classics, so when Wind Waker finally came to the Wii U in HD glory, many hoped that countless other games would follow. Of course, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD also was released on the Wii U (albeit without some of the enhancements that Wind Waker saw), but both games are now "stuck" on that Nintendo console. Bringing back those Zelda Wii U HD remakes to the Switch, perhaps even in a bundle, simply makes too much sense. And if the aforementioned Breath of the Wild sequel is not going to be ready for 2021, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess could be enough to hold fans over.
