Super Mario 3D World Bowser’s Fury - Announcement Trailer - Nintendo Switch

Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury.

2021 is the current year and is the fifth year of the Nintendo Switch as well as the first year for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Aside from a few announcements confirmed to release in that year, not much is currently known about the events and games planned for 2021. On March 31, Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Super Mario Bros. 35 was removed from stores. Third-party games for the 3DS and Wii U are also scheduled to be released in 2021. One of the most notable events for Nintendo is the purchase of Next Level Games on January 4th, which becomes a 1st party developer from that point on. A port of Super Mario 3D World, called Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury was released early into the year. New Mario spinoffs and a new Wario Ware game, titled WarioWare: Get It Together!, were also released. The year is also marked by new Pokémon games including the spinoff New Pokémon Snap and a Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remake called Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Metroid Dread was finally released this year after over a decade of troubled development and multiple versions. The year also marks the return of E3 after it went missing for a year in 2020.
