We adored Mario Kart 8 when it first came out on Wii U but noted one conspicuous absence that made many of us fall in love with the original Mario Kart on SNES to begin with: Battle Mode. Mario Kart 8’s encore on Nintendo Switch didn’t just keep the online community alive and added returning favorites like Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast, we also got a brand-new “cops and robbers” team mode with Renegade Roundup, all of the great DLC stages, and even some guests from the Splatoon universe. It’s not a new game, but one so good, it deserved to reach a bigger audience on Switch right away. — Peer Schneider
Every Nintendo fan has been waiting for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ever since it was announced for Wii U over four years ago. Now it’s finally here and on the Nintendo Switch, it has to be known that this is not only the best Zelda title ever, it’s one of the greatest games ever made. Not since The Witcher 3 made open-world games feel fresh again has something come along and blown the template out of the water.
Also much like the Yoshi title, not too many details have been released for Kirby Star Allies quite yet. We know that the video game will have players taking the role of Kirby with the ability to throw stars at enemies to essentially turn them into Kirby’s allies. Outside of that, you can still expect the same traditional move set from past Kirby titles such as inhale, star spit, slide attack, air-gun, among others.
At times it’s hard to believe something like this is running on Nintendo’s portable console as you climb vast mountains and trawl through dark industrial cities. It’s one of Monolith Soft’s finest efforts yet, and feels right at home on Switch.
Nintendo Switch is the gaming system you can play at home or on-the-go. Walmart.ca has Nintendo Switch consoles in Grey Joy-Con and Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con options. Once you’ve chosen your console, shop all Nintendo Switch games.
J’ai ma Nintendo Switch depuis un peu plus de deux semaines et c’est une console au format très pratique est plaisant. La prise en main est facile, autant en mode tablette qu’en mode plus traditionnel. Les graphiques sont très satisfaisant aussi! Je n’ai pour l’instant que joué à Zelda Breath of the Wild mais j’ai rarement eu autant de plaisir à jouer à un jeu console depuis bien longtemps!
For any kid that loves adventurous explorations, The Legend of Zelda: Breadth of the Wild is by far the best game on the list. The award-winning game features a beautiful humungous world in a sandbox environment where players can explore on their terms without time constraints.
However, do keep in mind your health and energy as you’ll need to make sure your character is in tip-top shape in order to avoid suffering from exhaustion. Lose health and you lose a considerable amount of money and items you’ve worked hard to attained. Stardew Valley will have you hooked for hours on end, for better or worse. (Better, definitely better.)
Led by Castlevania series producer, Koji Igarashi, comes the upcoming action-adventure game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The video game is in the style of Metroidvania as you explore, craft new weapons, and of course, find new armor.
There’s a strong case to be made for why the Switch will be worth it for Nintendo devotees and casual gamers alike. The company’s long-running exclusive franchises like Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros. and The Legend of Zelda are usually enough to lure Nintendo loyalists on their own, although it’s worth noting that the new Zelda game will be available for the Wii U as well. Another bonus for Nintendo fans: those who subscribe to the company’s online service will also get to play a free NES or SNES game for a month.
We’ve highlighted our picks of the best Nintendo Switch bundles below. Just be aware that they don’t really offer much of a discount over buying the items separately. We’ll steer you clear of console bundles that actively charge you more than the regular combined RRP (not cool, guys!).
The retailer’s site only has a “coming soon” page live and a list of games or accessories to buy, and after calling a few locations I was told that there was no online pre-order, meaning every single one of the systems that Toys R Us is receiving will be going to a walk-in. We were also told that there will be no midnight openings for the hardware’s release.
All key Bomberman elements return for the Nintendo Switch™ title, including useful items found within the destructible areas of each maze. Removing a wall will often reveal a power-up to extend the…
Extremely practical device. It’s power and versatility make up for the slightly lofty expense. The switch is an entertainment machine through and through which will only become better once more games and content release during its lifespan.
The Nintendo Switch is the hottest console out right now, and it’s not showing any signs of slowing down. Nintendo’s hybrid machine is home to such hits as Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Splatoon 2, all of which you can enjoy on your big TV or take on the go. And with a diverse library that includes indies like Stardew Valley and Rocket League and mature AAA romps like Doom and Bayonetta, you’ll have no trouble finding something that suits your tastes.
This bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console and Nintendo Switch dock in black, with contrasting left and right Joy‑Con controllers—one red, one blue. It also includes all the extras you need to get started.
A golfing sim wrapped up in a funny, faintly absurd story about a guy who quits his life to become a pro golfer, even though he’s a bit rubbish. Oddly enough, everyone you meet along your way through this story seems to demand you complete a putting challenge before they’ll talk to you. The combination of straightforward golf mechanics and absurd situations feels almost like magical realism. A game to cheer up any commute.
While the Switch port of Pokkén Tournament DX adds a few new elements into the mix, such as a daily challenge, wireless multiplayer and a handful of extra characters, it is very much the same game as ever. So that’s a surprisingly nuanced brawler that’s as much for genre veterans as it is for anyone who fancies pummeling Pikachu’s face into an adorable mush. With a proper mainline Pokémon confirmed for Switch sometime in the not too distant future, consider Pokkén Tournament DX as a fun taster of greater things to come.
The Longest Five Minutes is unlike any other RPG on the list due to its risk-taking by providing a different style of gameplay. In this game, players make choices in their character’s memories that ultimately change the present, allowing multiple story paths and outcomes.
I have been playing a few games on this system since release day (March 3, 2017). To date I have no complaints. The system is user friendly, easy to set and ready to go right out of the box. The “Switch” between TV mode and handheld is flawless. I use the system both ways on a daily basis. The battery life while in handheld mode is approx. 3 hours (playing Zelda: BotW). Controller battery life is about 20 hours of gameplay. I have both physical games and even a download from the eShop. All work well seamlessly. Adding Friends was a breeze and quick link options for existing friends of other games (Miitomo, Super Mario Run, Etc.) Linking my other eShop fund accounts was also simple. Now I Can purchase with my eShop money on any of my devices. I have only one concern with the system at this time – the low Memory (34GB) – which can be expanded via Micro SD card so there is room to grow outside the internal memory. Although I am still working on completing and enjoying the games I already have, I look forward to a wider selection of titles in the near future. I loo forward to my first chance to play online with others (like in Spaltoon 2). Overall, a regret free purchase
The procedural algorithms crunching numbers behind the scenes in The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ will almost guarantee you never see the same thing twice. This top-down dungeon crawler plays like a cross between a shooter and an adventure game in the vein of the original Legend of Zelda. Afterbirth+ adds more power-ups, enemies, bosses, and secrets to a game brimming with variety. It gives Isaac more ways to tap into the unexpected and surprise you even after hundreds of hours.

Despite being out for months now, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is still $60 at most stores, so this Nintendo Switch bundle isn’t as overpriced as it looks. And let’s face it, with stock continuing to sell out, there’s not much incentive for stores like GameStop to knock any money off a deal like this.
