Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince is out on 1st December 2023 on Switch and focuses on Psaro, whose name you might recognise if you've played Dragon Quest IV. Psaro is out for revenge, and he must become a Monster Wrangler to command an army of creatures to fulfil his ambitions. The game uses the familiar turn-based battle system from the spin-off series and the main Dragon Quest series, but you'll be commanding your menagerie of monsters in battle instead of taking up arms yourself.
Thunderful's SteamWorld series has worn many different hats over the years, but with SteamWorld Build, we're digging down into the city-builder and dungeon-crawler worlds. You need to construct a mining town and explore abandoned mines looking for new materials to help grow your ever-expanding home. The game is due to be released later this year, and we can't wait. This one comes out of the ground on 1st December 2023.
DS cult classic Another Code: Two Memories (Trace Memory) and its Wii sequel have been bundled together on Switch for what is looking like a stunning remake. Another Code: Recollection brings back Ashley Edwards as she heads to the Blood Edward Island to find her father, who is presumed dead. We loved the original back on the DS, and the Wii sequel never made it to North America. Luckily, this duo will be launching on Switch quite soon — on 19th January 2024.
A brand new entry in the Prince of Persia series certainly wasn't on our bucket list, but The Lost Crown looks to be taking the franchise in a fast-paced Metroidvania direction. We loved what we got to play around Summer Game Fest 2023, and we're excited to check this out when it lands on 19th January 2024.
