We hope you're feeling up for a good ol' game of cricket this summer, because it appears that a brand new game is on the way to Nintendo Switch.
No official word has been shared, and we don't even have a confirmed title at present, but the signs are pointing towards an 'Ashes Cricket 2019' game launching this summer. This tweet below from the England Cricket account has uploaded a small teaser, seemingly referencing the upcoming Test series set to be played this summer.
Notice the Switch logo right at the very end...
Cricket games appear far less frequently than those tied to the likes of football (soccer, for our American chums), basketball, baseball, and the like, but we have had a few titles appear on Nintendo systems in the past. The Nintendo DS had Freddie Flintoff's Power Play Cricket (who could forget?), and previous Ashes games have also arrived in the form of Ashes Cricket 2009 and Ashes Cricket 2013.
We'll keep an eye out for more news on this one as it arrives, but it looks like we'll be able to get stuck into this one this summer, probably around the time of the real deal which takes place this August.
Are you a cricket fan? Will you be snapping this one up as soon as it launches on Switch? Tell us below.
Great news for ninted switch slaes in india, england and pakistan!
Looks quality wise on par with the RBI series. And that's not a compliment.
Boring. The most boring sports in digital form is even more boring.
Not even Mario can make this interesting. (Mario Cricket, crikey!)
Oh cricket I would rather watch grass grow
Test cricket on the go. Sign me up!
I would like to play some Cartoonish Kickboxing games on Nintendo Switch such as K-1.
Nice, I will pick this up for sure.
The Big Ant cricket games formally Don Bradmans Cricket... put far to many hours into these games than I would like to admit. Probably a good fit for the switch as they are not the most graphically intense games I have played.
I'd genuinely be up for a good cricket game. Don't like watching cricket, but, I seem to remember some genuinely enjoyable cricket videogames of past, on the Amiga if memory serves me right. Besides, for all the naysayers, better a cricket game than ANOTHER American 'Football' clone.
As an Indian this is great news!
@Pazuzu666 Graham Gooch World Class Cricket on the Amiga and It's Cricket.
Both enjoyable cricket games
I'd LOVE this to have motion control bowling and batting! I'd buy it for that.
Do these games even come out in the states?
Excellent. Please be good.
No mention of Super International Cricket on the SNES?
Good for people who love cricket, sadly I was never taken by it. That snooker game mentioned a while back is still on my radar though...
@electrolite77 Wonder how many Big Ant staff worked at Melbourne House/Beam Software back in the day...
"Cricket? Nobody understands cricket. You gotta know what a crumpet is to understand cricket."
Meh I rather just play the actual sports.
I’ll give it a try.
I haven’t played sports since high school, but I love hockey video games. At least, the old 2002 ones from EA that were arcady.
I don’t even know what this sport is. But who knows, maybe cricket will be my next “hockey”. Or waffleball 🤫
@retro_player_22 Yeah me too, I'll just put my pads on while I'm on the train and have an actual game of cricket. Or play in an actual Ashes Series. Good call mate.
Would mind giving this a go even though I have no idea what I’m doing 😂 .. wish the switch had a proper baseball game 😢
It may be fun. I'm interested.
