Mario Kart 8 DLC Wave 3, Crisis Core & more
We’ve made it to the final month of 2022, everyone! It’s been another action-packed year of gaming, and while we didn’t get everything we necessarily wanted, it was still a fun ride on the Nintendo Switch front.
So, what’s there to look forward to in December? Well, apart from Inscryption, which is already out, some games to be on the lookout for include the retro throwback Super Kiwi 64 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe‘s third booster wave (yes, we’re counting it as its own thing). Then, later on in the month, we’ve got titles like Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion and Lil Gator Game to look forward to.
Will you be playing any of these games on your Nintendo Switch this month? Tell us down below.

Give us Kiwi or give us Moose
Inscryption (worst Home Screen icon EVER, literally trash icon), Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Sports Story
Good month, overall.
Maybe Chained Echoes and Sports Story, cause my backlog increased during this last sale.
still no Advance Wars.
Remember folks Final fantasy 7 is the only game in the series apparently…
Still no GoldenEye, for that matter. Ridiculous. 😭
I’m very curious to see reviews for dragon quest treasures because it looks cute but I’m not totally sure about the gameplay. I’m curious about wavetale too because of the gorgeous art.
Super Kiwi 64 is probably on the list because it is by the Toree 3D people. However, there was a demo of Super Kiwi 64 packaged with the recent 2D platformer beeny and neither beeny nor the Kiwi demo were particularly good. There isn’t much risk trying the game for $2, but based on the demo, Kiwi isn’t going to be the amazing game Toree was, although I would be happy if I was wrong.
Inscryption and The Outbound Ghost.
I’m fine with that though as my backlog has grown to ridiculous proportions this year.
Also have Horizon FW and GoW Ragnarok to start this month.
Good time to be a gamer, so many great games to pick from.
Chained Echoes and Sports Story about to be some of the best indies of this year.
Keen to play Inscryption and Sports Story.
I’ll be playing the Mario Kart tracks day 1. Sports Story and Outbound Ghost I’m planning to pick up sometime next year. I have too many games on my plate this holiday season lol.
Pretty good month. Most excited to play Crisis Core and MK8D DLC but several other interesting titles here too.
Sports Story, River City Girls 2 (which comes out on the 15th) and maybe Samurai Maiden
@Marioracer For a game with "coping with loss" as a core theme, Square sure is unable to move on from it.
"Exciting" sure. Aside from SV, I haven’t seen anything exciting on the Switch in over 6 months.
@Magitek_Knight Lol good one.
Sports Story. If only we knew the day it’s out…
5 games there I want. DQ tops the list.
Chained Echoes looks so much fun! I might pick this one up
I was looking forward to Sports Story until finally playing Golf Story when it went on sale a few weeks back. Got tired of it a few courses in and found the story a bit boring and humourless
Lil Gator and Dragon Quest Treasures are on my list. Maybe Mario Kart 8 will get a definitive edition with all the new tracks, so I will wait for that.
I’m really excited for DQ Treasures!
I need Sports Story date!
That and Chained Echoes will probably make this the best month of 2022.
Why didn’t they give a release date for Goldeneye? Are they waiting for the war in Ukraine to end before releasing it?
Nothing there for me for once.
Two things I’m excited for here. Crisis Core and the MK8 DLC.
@Don I hope not. I haven’t played Goldeneye yet so I hope I Can.
Just to remind everyone that we FINALLY get a physical release of Cuphead this coming week if anyone is interested 😊
Can we really consider Mario Kart 8 Deluxe – Booster Course Wave 3 as a game?
Also don’t forget we have lost one 🐉! 🙈
"Also don’t forget we have lost one 🐉! 🙈"
@EVIL-C or smash….
@fox_mattcloud Yo fox!
@Don There was never a confirmed release date for GoldenEye.
@Kayloo Probably Nintendo wants people to buy/play Smash Ultimate, I’d guess.
Sports Story me up!
@EVIL-C That would be my guess
can you imagine if we got a modern spinoff featuring terra and Locke, or cecil and kain?
I can’t either. 🤔
ps – what if it were rendered in a painterly style that resembled and honored yoshitaka amano’s concept?
nah bad idea I guess.
Wave 3 sounds great to me. Sports Story has the potential to surpass Golf Story, as well.
Some real gems in here. I’ve already had FF7 crisis core pre-ordered for a while now. I’ll definitely grab sports story. And I have my eye on super kiwi 64, lil gator game, and outbound ghost.
Has there been any extended switch footage of crisis core since pretty much all of the previews i could find were showing PlayStation footage even the NWR one.
Yay for wave three of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I know everyone in my household is super excited for this one.
@Don The weirdest thing about the GoldenEye release date is that the Direct announcement in the UK said “Coming Soon” but the Japanese version of the same Direct said “2023”.
There was a faint hope that this meant it was coming in 2022 in the West, a theory which received a further boost when Mario Party and Mario Party 2 both released in November – leaving no remaining titles for 2022 to have one in December. Thus GoldenEye seemed possible to become that title.
But alas, it looks like December will just get no release at all. Joy. Merry Christmas Nintendo…!
I’m hoping they would announce the release date at Game Awards later this week. Since we are only in the beginning of December there’s still hope Goldeneye will be released before the year ends.
Will hold out for (hopefully) a physical of sports story.
Outbound ghost physical is on its way and FF7 Reunion is on pre-order.
@Don I still think there’s a chance it’ll come this month, but seems more likely they’ll just drop it via a low profile Tweet. Game Awards is always possible, but I’m not sure they’ll want the bells and whistles.
Japan has the most exciting Switch release this month Earth Defense Force 4.1. I’ve completed EDF 2 and 3 (EDF 2017) on the Switch and it’s a shame the western releases are still stuck in limbo.
