Most Anticipated Games of 2024

Hey guys! Long time no see! For the first article of 2024 I would like to start off with the most anticipated games of the year. Some games you might be familiar with and others will surprise you! Also, many interesting video games films are coming out this year, which shows that video game adaptations have come a long way for the better! Also, check out out my other articles if you get the chance!

So without further ado let’s see what 2024 has in store for us at the moment.

 

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (2024)

The next chapter to the Final Fantasy VII Remake story is here! Cloud and his friends will continue their journey to save the planet from Shinra who is using the life essence  to drain the planet’s energy. In this game, the player will now be able to explore outside of Midgar like the original game in 1997. The combat will be just like Final Fantasy VII Remake (2020) using real time action base commands to execute towards the opponents.

The game will be more vast than it’s predecessor being more of an open world game rather than linear base game like Final Fantasy VII (2020). It will also expand on the gameplay mechanic “Synergized” which was first introduced in the DLC content called Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. “Synergized” allows the party members to sync up their attacks, but at the cost of the character’s speed.

Now, I won’t go into to too much detail about this game, but if you’ve played Final Fantasy VII Remake or the original Final Fantasy VII in 1997, you’ll be excited for this game! Comes out February 29, 2024.

 

Princess Peach: Showtime! (2024)

Now this game came out of nowhere! Nintendo hasn’t created a solo Princess Peach game since the amazing Super Princess Peach in 2005. Now little is known about this game, but it would seems by the trailer that the game is set in a stage like setting featuring the main villain of the game Wicked Grape. She also get special powers similar to how Kirby gets special power ups to defeat certain foes. Some power ups showcased in the trailer is Swordfighter, Kung Fu, Detective and Patissier Peach. These abilities will play an important role to progress throughout the game.

The game is set to be release on March 22, 2024.

 

Persona 3 Reload (2024)

Persona 3 Reload is an updated remake of the original Persona 3 game that the came out in 2006. Although this game is a remake, they’re a lot of major changes that makes it slightly different than the original game. The differences include making the game more like the recent entries in the series. This includes having place makers on important locations, utilizing the graphical interface to look more stylish like Persona 5, having the protagonist run thorough certain areas he couldn’t do before, making the protagonist be able to talk to every resident around the area and cook certain foods in the dorm has been added to raise social skills.

The game introduces other different mechanics in gameplay making the playstyle more like Persona 4 and 5. Like controlling the characters next attack, having new Persona designs to use in battle and a minigame at the end of some battles like Persona 4.

Best to wait and see as it comes out on February 2, 2024.

 

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2024)

It’s been 20 years since Paper Mario went on this journey and it’s now coming to the Nintendo Switch in full HD. Now, like Princess Peach Showtime, there’s little information about this remake. Will there be new features added? New characters? New areas? We don’t really know however, since it is going to be on the Nintendo Switch it will be portable. This allows many players to play this masterpiece on a train, at work, or at school.

Although I wish I could tell you more about the remake, it’s still to0 early to tell. However, what we do know is that this is one of Paper Mario best journeys yet and it’s slated to be out in 2024.

Devil May Cry (2024)

The Devil May Cry series is getting an anime adaptation from Netflix that will consist of 8 full episodes. This teaser trailer was shown to the public just a few months ago, but it looks like we are in for a ride from this series with the animation resembling that of the Castlevania tv series. The only downfall is that the English voice actor Reuben Langdon will not voice Dante in this animation sadly. However, hopefully that won’t stop this from being a good anime!

It is set to be release in 2024 with no official date.

Tomb Raider: The Legend Of Lara Croft (2024)

Another Netfilx anime series is Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft, which again has similar animation style to the Castlevania series. The plot is set to take place from the reboot series from 2013 and takes place after the events of the Shadow of the Tomb Raider. In retrospect, for the reboot series this technically will be the third game if you really think about it. However, like the Devil May Cry anime, there is still not enough information to reveal.

Watch the trailer as it is set to be release sometime in 2024.
