No console gaming experience is complete without a button-mashing romp through a destructible LEGO world, and LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is the best on the market at the moment. Don’t let the fact that it’s a sequel put you off. This game stands a full head and shoulders higher than its predecessor (which is also awesome). The story is new. The level design is clever. And it’s got buckets of that classic tongue-in-cheek LEGO humour. Bash your way through hours of gameplay solo or with a friend.
BD&A offers a snap-on folio that covers the display when not in use and gives the Switch a few more options when in its kickstand mode for portable gameplay. If you plan to travel a lot with your Switch, this $24 accessory is perfect for keeping it safe.
Suprise! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild earned a spot on the best Switch games list, and it might easily be the most impressive launch game of the last decade. Simply put, Breath of the Wild redefines the open world video game in a way we didn’t think was possible. By giving players a massive world to explore, and the ability to define their journey by their own terms, Nintendo has designed one of the most widely-celebrated sandbox games of this generation. It’s quite an achievement, and a game full of mystery and delectable discoveries to uncover.
Anyone that loves classic point-and-click adventure stories such as Broken Sword and Monkey Island will certainly want to direct their attention towards this recent release from LucasArts veteran Ron Gilbert.
With only 32GB of internal storage, you’ll be wanting to pick up a cheap memory card or two for your new Nintendo Switch for any digital purchases or the inevitable game-fixing patches. Don’t fret though, they’re actually surprisingly cheap, with even 64GB ones coming in at under £20/$25.
Stop giggling, that’s what these are actually called! A number of talented folks out there have started making and selling simple cloth covers for the front part of Nintendo Switch Docks, adding a little bit of style and protection to your setup. There are a bunch of different designs, but more importantly these $17 Dock Socks keep the Switch display from being accidentally scratched by the plastic edges of the Switch Dock.
Screen protectors add a glossy surface to the Switch display, which is not ideal for a portable gaming system. Keeping the display safe when this tablet is not in its dock should be handled the same way we handle any other tablet — with a good folio case.
To the right is the Nintendo Switch tracker. To be alerted when one of these items is in stock or available for pre-order, make sure to add that item to your account and turn on the corresponding stock status toggles.
In Australia, EB Games is selling the Switch for AU$470, with AU$8 shipping, but it does not ship overseas. It also has several different bundle options to choose from. It also has the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller for AU$100.
Fast RMX’s gimmick is that at any point your craft has either an orange or a blue polarity, which match with speed power-ups that are spread around the track. By switching your polarity as you race, you can maximize the benefits these power-ups bring.
The popular Super Mario adventures are referred to as platform games. This type of game genre follows a character as it runs and jumps in its digital environment. Other genres include shooters like Metroid, role playing games (RPG) such as The Legend of Zelda series, and racing games, like the ultra-popular Mario Kart. There are also puzzle games, sports games, and simulators. Truly, there is something for everyone in the world of Nintendo Switch games.
What do you hope for from a breakdancing game? If it’s a cool soundtrack, appealing comic-book style graphics and animation, and easy-to-learn dance moves, Floor Kids has you covered. Dancing is simple, but combining different moves keeps things interesting as you get better at the game. There is an unexpectedly good multiplayer mode, too.
Resident Evil Revelations takes you back to what happened between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, revealing the truth about the virus. With limited ammo and weapons, the race to survive is on for just $14.
The same price applies to games like “Skylanders Imaginators,” though there are a small handful of lower-priced games (“Snipperclips” is $19.99, for instance). But let’s be honest: You’re going to want “Zelda.”
You can now get the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey bundle with the other versions of the console too. There’s not much of a discount, but seeing as the Switch is selling out again, this might be your last chance anyways. Amazon has the best price today.
Waterfield’s answer to the game case is an exquisite example of how you can look like a grown-up, but play like a kid. The Arcade Gaming Case is a beautiful designer bag made of full-grain leather (let me tell you, this leather feels so nice!) with a soft plush lining. It’s big enough to fit your Switch tablet (with the Joy-Cons detatched), a Hori Compact PlayStand, your Joy-Cons, all your necessary cables, and more. I managed to fit all of the above, plus my Mophie Powerstation XXL (which is a monolith itself) comfortably. It looks so good over your shoulder like a satchel, but also carries around briefcase style thanks to the leather handle on top.

Teenage friends get together on a deserted island and, unsurprisingly, things get weird in this spooky, well-written adventure. Oxenfree isn’t a gruesome or stressful horror game, more a twisty supernatural yarn. Witty, believable dialogue reveals all the complex rivalries and secret desires that you’d expect from a group of small-town kids.

There’s not we can say at this point when it comes to the untitled Yoshi game. The series is well beloved by gamers of old and new with the character featured in a number of his own video games throughout the years.
Looking for a cheap Nintendo Switch with at least one game? We’ve seen this bundle for less, but if the other bundles sell out, then this is a decent alternative, especially as Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is still quite new. This is available with the red/blue edition of the Nintendo Switch at Currys.
For those of you hoping to play your Wii U version of Mario Kart 8 on Switch, we’re sorry to say you can’t. However, you can pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when it launches in April and enjoy everything Mario Kart 8 has – including all DLC – alongside new characters, courses and a brand-new Battle Mode that’s like the classic arena-based balloon warfare found on past titles.
With each person only able to do one thing at a time, and most meals requiring multiple stages of preparation, this forces you to split tasks up between you. The problem is that every task proceeds at a slightly different pace, meaning you’re constantly having to change your plans to deal with problems as they arise.
Super Mario Odyssey tears up the Super Mario template without throwing it into the breeze. It’s a fantastic usurpment of everything you’d expect a Super Mario game to be, without losing any of the flare and flavour the series has had since Super Mario 64. The introduction of Cappy is an excellent extension of Mario’s abilities and, with the meatiest end game since Super Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2, Super Mario Odyssey will keep you busy for hours on end.
Along with Yoshi, Luigi, and Peach, Mario joins forces with the Rabbids (who started life in Rayman and went on to star in their own series) to solve puzzles and and fight enemies in a world that combines elements from both franchises.
