2022 is a very light year for video game releases, although the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite, and Nintendo Switch OLED are still getting some notable games before the end of the year. between Splatoon 3And Mario Strikers: Battle LeagueAnd Fire Emblem Warriors: Three HopesAnd Pokemon Scarlett and VioletAnd Bayonetta 3There’s a lot to look forward to if you’re a Nintendo fan. Switch users will also get Lord of the Rings: Gollum This year, but later than anyone else. The game is scheduled to release worldwide on September 1, on every platform except for the Switch. According to Daedalic Entertainment, a Switch release is coming in 2022, but not until later in the year.
It’s unclear why the Switch version was released later than any other version of the game, but it’s not that rare. The Switch regularly gets games later than anyone else, possibly due to the complex nature of the port. Most games are made on PC, and ported from there. Transferring from PC to PlayStation and Xbox consoles is much easier than transferring from PC to Nintendo Switch.
As for the game itself, it is difficult to say whether it is good. The developer behind it has some pedigree, but this is perhaps the biggest and most ambitious game to date. Whatever the case, given the IP address, it’s one of the biggest releases of the year.
“Lord of the Rings: Gollumbased on the legendary the Lord of the Rings A trilogy of books by JRR Tolkien, telling of Gollum’s behind-the-scenes experiences in the early chapters of The Fellowship of the Ring, “reads the game’s official playing field.” Having lost his precious ring to Bilbo Baggins, Gollum decides to leave the Misty Mountains and set out on a perilous journey that leads him from the dungeons of Barad d’Or to the world of Elf Wood in Mirkwood. In order to survive the perils of his journey through Middle-earth, Gollum has to sneak, climb, and use all his cunning. He also has to deal with Smeagol. It’s up to players if they want Gollum to have the upper hand when it comes to making important decisions, or if they’d prefer to let Smeagol take over. Gollum also encounters famous characters from the books as well as some new faces.”
