Bravely Default II

Nintendo has released their final Nintendo Direct Mini of the year, and as a Partner Showcase it revealed a decent amount. The games that were featured in the presentation are Bravely Default II (February 26, 2021), Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town (March 23, 2021), Immortals Fenyx Rising (December 3, 2020), Hitman 3 and Control (playable via cloud-streaming technology), and No More Heroes and No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle, which are out today.

“Even though this is the final Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase of the year, the Nintendo Switch games from our development and publishing partners are still coming on strong,” said Steve Singer, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Publisher and Developer Relations. “Through these video presentations, we are able to show the breadth of creative and diverse experiences that can be found on Nintendo Switch.” 

Bravely Default II will unite four heroes and set them off on an epic journey with the same beautiful graphics as the first game. The plot has the player defeating enemies called Asterisk bearers, with the heroes acquiring Asterisks, which allow the heroes to change their jobs. By changing jobs around, players will be able to fight battles in many different ways and changes the odds to their favor. Some of these jobs are the Gambler, the Bard, the White Mage, and the Vanguard. Bravely Default II will release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on February 26, 2021.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will release on November 20, but if fans want to try out the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild narrative prequel, they can try out the demo right now on the Nintendo eShop. If prospective players also watch the Nintendo showcase, they'll see the "massive, screen-filling Divine Beasts that will also be playable in the game", which is pretty cool. The demo will cover the entire first chapter of the game, and your progress in the demo will carry over to the full release.

No More Heroes III will see players as Travis Touchdown once again battling against assassins on a galactic scale sometime in 2021. If you want to play the first two games, they're also available today on the Nintendo Switch eShop as well.
