Yes, I know it's almost February (my my, time flies O_O), but 2017 is still fairly long and a lot of stuff is going to come out. So, without further ado, post your Most Anticipated games of 2017. Also, only games that are confirmed (esp. in the West) or targeted for 2017 count. My list, and I'm starting off with two holdovers from my 2016 list: Cosmic Star Heroine (Developed and published by Zeboyd Games; PC/PS4/PSVita, no date announced) I'm technically cheating here. This game was originally targeted for a summer 2016 release, but it didn't quite work out. Still, I'm optimistic that Zeboyd Games can deliver a great experience in what I presume will be the true successor to Chrono Trigger. This year. Yooka-Laylee (Developed by Playtonic Games, published by Team17; PC/XBO/PS4/Switch; April 11th, 2017) Banjo-Kazooie revival. Nuff said. And now, the Stuff Announced For 2017 That Is Supposed To Come Out This Year (And Hopefully Will): The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky The 3rd (Developed by Nihon Falcom, published by XSEED; PC; 2017) It took some time, but finally, the first Arc of the Zemuria Saga is complete. I won't comment too much on it, since I haven't finished SC yet, but I'm very interested in where Estelle and company are going next. Tokyo Xanadu (eX+) (Developed by Nihon Falcom, published by AKSYS; PSVita (vanilla)/PS4 (eX+); mid-late 2017) Another Falcom game, this time with a more modern setting though. The nice part? Publisher AKSYS actually brings both versions this very year, with the PS4 version (dubbed eX+) releasing only months after it hits shelves in Japan. Not sure if I'll get both versions or just one, but either way, colour me intrigued. NieR: Automata (Developed by Platinum Games, published by Square Enix; PS4/PC; March 2017 (PS4)) It will be yet another busy year for JRPG enthusiasts such as myself. If there is one title I am the most confident in getting, it's the unexpected revival of the NieR franchise, with development this time headed by action gameplay pros Platinum games. I'm curious what Yoko Taro brings to the table in this one, but his special brand of weirdness is always a pleasure to me. Vampyr (Developed by DONTNOD, published by Focus Home Entertainment; PC/PS4/XBO; 2017) DONTNOD have, so far, made a pretty good Action/Adventure game with Remember Me and a great story-driven Adventure with Life Is Strange. Their third effort is, again, jumping genres and presents us a RPG starring a recently-vampirized medical practitioner struggling between his beastly nature and his professional calling during a flu epidemic. I raise my hand to shout "WANT". The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Developed and published by Nintendo; Wii U/Switch; March 03rd, 2017) This is what I'd call The Big One. Yes, there's a lot coming out in 2017 that has grabbed my attention, but it all pales in comparison to the anticipation I have for the latest outing of one of my favourite series (probably the only thing to get me more pumped would be a new Metroid game.... ). And this looks like it will rock. Zelda has long been overdue for some freshness and BotW seems like the Breath of Fresh Air to deliver here. I own neither Switch nor Wii U, but dammit, this game makes me want to get BOTH.
