The Duck’s Most Anticipated Games of 2023

This year is already looking like it’s going to be a good one for gaming.  The Duck’s most anticipated games for 2023 are a mixture of massive, open-world games, indie games, DLC, and chapter-length installments.  I often try to wait for sales before I buy most games, but I think I’ll be buying the games below as soon as they release…

  • FNAF: Security Breach DLC – This may not be a full game, but I’m quite interested to see what happens in the upcoming Security Breach DLC, which I heard is called Ruin.  I just hope the DLC is way less buggy than the full game.  But at least it’s free…
  • Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 – Although I haven’t played it myself, I’ve been following along with Poppy Playtime on YouTube, and I’m rather excited for the release of chapter 3 in 2023.  The story has been getting a bit darker, and I kind of feel like they shouldn’t have already spoiled the next monster, a hungry Jack-in-the-Box called Boxy Boo.  Nevertheless, I’m invested enough in the game that I’m really interested in where the story goes next.
  • Pikmin 4 – I absolutely love the Pikmin games, but every time we get a new entry to the franchise, I don’t expect a sequel.  But then we received an unexpected teaser trailer for Pikmin 4, whose scenery further supports the notion that the games take place on Earth, if the garden bench and the fence are anything to go by.  Although a solid release date has not yet been confirmed, it seems we’ll be assembling our tiny Pikmin troops and collecting a buttload of items sometime in 2023.
  • Hollow Knight: Silksong – Silksong has been on my list of most anticipated games for the last two years, but this time, I think its release might actually be imminent.  I hope.  I’m seeing online that the game should be released by June of 2023, so we’ll see…  I’m among many who loved the original Hollow Knight, and so I’m pretty excited for another difficult Metroidvania set in the world of bugs.  And this time, we’ll be playing as Hornet!
  • The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Surely every Zelda fan is excited for the sequel to Breath of the Wild, the most expansive Zelda game to date.  Based on the trailer, I have to wonder if Tears of the Kingdom is going to be an even bigger game, considering the footage we’re seeing of a huge world to explore in the sky, along with Link’s glider for soaring through the air.  After years of waiting, we finally have a release date of May 12, 2023!

    Give me Silksong and the new Zelda and I will be a happy gamer.

    For some reason I am still iffy on that 2023 release date for Pikmin 4. It’s been such an elusive game that I can’t help doubting it. But i will come eventually, I am sure. Hopefully this year.
