Puyo Puyo Tetris combines the most iconic puzzler of all time with an adorable bubble block puzzle game to create something entirely new and unique. Including a bizarre story mode, players can choose to play rounds of Puyo Puyo, Tetris, or fusions of the two.
Happen to see Best Buy had some in stock and ordered mine without any problems and received it the following week. Thank you, Best Buy. Not enough games at the moment but I bought it for Zelda and Mario for now. Zelda: Breath of the Wild is beautiful game…by far the best Zelda to date.
You get a pair with the console, but you might want to buy more to allow extra players to get involved in games like Mario Kart 8, FIFA 18 and many more. Or maybe you just fancy some different colors for your own use.
Snipperclips is a hilarious, 2D physics-based puzzle game and the quintessential Nintendo Switch experience for anyone interested in couch co-op experiences. The weird audible instructions shared between you and other players as you try to solve challenges will almost always make you laugh. But Snipperclips incredibly flexible puzzle designs offer you lots of opportunities to experiment and try out different solutions.
SteamWorld Dig 2 is a textbook example of everything a sequel should be: bigger, smarter, and just straight up more fun. Guiding Dorothy through SWD 2’s labyrinthine caverns searching for loot and upgrades is a challenging and charming twist on the classic “Metroidvania” style and has a gameplay loop that will undoubtedly keep you up into the wee hours of the morning for “just one more run”. – Zachary Ryan
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.)
Looking back, the Switch costs just as much as the Wii U did when it was released in 2012. It’s also $50 more expensive than the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, both of which are currently available for around $250. So is the Switch really worth it? The answer largely depends on your preferences and priorities, but here’s a look at what you should consider before buying.
Ultra Street Fighter 2 is essentially the same Street Fighter 2 that’s been continuously re-released on every console under the sun. Technically this version is based on Super Street 2 Turbo from 1994, which added super and air combos to the base game, but unless you’re a die-hard fan this likely won’t mean too much to you.
This special enhanced edition of the Wii U smash was one of the first big tests for the Switch. How would a game initially built to be played exclusively on a console strapped to a TV translate to a system made to be taken anywhere? The answer: about as well as anybody could expect. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe collected every scrap of bonus content for one of the best games of the decade, added a nostalgic return to a classic battle mode, and made all of it perfectly portable thanks to the Switch’s unique capabilities. If anybody was worried that Breath of the Wild would be a one-hit wonder for the Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe gave them hope.
As someone who travels a great deal, the Switch is everything I’ve ever wanted out of a home console. At first I thought the commercials were goofy, with people taking it and setting it up in just about any place, but I can honestly say that with a small backpack I am able to take everything I need to get the party started just about anywhere I go. To date Ive set it up: in an airport, in a pub, at friends houses, and even at work. The joy-cons are easy to get accustomed to, and though software available as of the date of writing this is minimal, the library of titles set to release has be excited! Pros: * Easy to pick up * Accessible learning curve * Battery lasts approx 4 hours (playing Zelda Breath of the Wild) without making use of power saver settings. * Seamlessly transitions from portable handheld to hard-wired console as advertised * Great weight to it (good hand feel). Doesn’t feel overly heavy, and not light enough to make it feel cheap. * Comfortable controllers in multiple configurations. Cons: * MUST MUST MUST use a quality screen protector before docking it even just once (otherwise you run the risk of scratching the screen). * Connecting the Joy-con wrist strap (not included in the box) is easy, disconnecting it is frustratingly difficult. In my group of friends I’m the only one able to consistently do it with moderate ease (and that took a ton of practice). * Software available at release is a little on the slim side. Huge titles are planned within the first year (waiting sucks!)
Well Nintendo’s new console is here, if you are looking for the way to play Zelda this is it. Not a single problem with it so far and the joycons that come with it are fun to use, although for someone who doesn’t have giant hands they do feel rather small. The only problem is the current lack of many games, but that’s typical of any launch. If you are reading this you already know if you are going to be getting a Switch, It’s worth it just for Zelda so far.
The bundles that were available when we checked didn’t seem to pack in quite as much bang for the buck. QVC is charging $550 for a package that includes a Switch console, a carrying bag, and “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.” The game sells for $59 on its own, and the bag appears to be nothing special, so shoppers are probably paying $100 to $150 more than they should overall.
Nintendo Switch bundles with additional games are a mixed bag at the moment, but this is one of the cheapest ones. Don’t worry if the Neon Red/Blue version is a bit loud for you, you can get this bundle in grey for the same price too.
If you’re a die-hard JRPG fan, then there is no better role-playing game for the Nintendo Switch out there than the Seiken Densestu Collection. The Seiken Densetsu Collection (Secret of Mana Series) is a compilation of the first three Secret of Mana games all ported to the Nintendo Switch.
Even with the Switch being a relatively new gadget, there are plenty of excellent add-ons that enhance and supplement the experience. Here are some of the best accessories you can get right now to elevate your Switch experience.
New shipments are being sent out every now and then to local stores, such as Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop and Target in the US. In fact, a GameStop rep told CNET that its more than 4,400 brick-and-mortar stores will be getting a minimum of five Nintendo Switch consoles each on Tuesday, August 15.
Switch has been selling quite well since the console debuted earlier this year; according to Nintendo’s latest earnings report, the system has sold 7.63 million units worldwide through the end of September. Nintendo also says the console is on track to outpace Wii U’s entire lifetime sales by the end of its first year on the market.
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.
Ideal for all ages The game takes a long time to load from when you start up the game to the start menu. But this can be avoided by loading the game up beforehand when you get into the game world and leaving it in sleep mode.
So you’re one of the lucky gamers to get your hands on a Nintendo Switch. Like any other new gaming setup, you’ll probably want to grab some accessories to go along with it. Whether it’s a case, controller, or stand, you’ll find that just the right addition can make your Switch setup more complete.
Got a Switch? If so, you’ll need Super Mario Odyssey stat. Alongside Zelda, it’s one of the absolute best reasons to have the handheld. In fact, if you don’t have the Switch, we advise running out and buying one with both of those games right now. Go on, we’ll wait.
2018 is quickly approaching and with it will come a slew of new video game titles to look forward to playing. With that said, now’s a good time to start marking down what video games to keep an eye on when they officially launch next year. Let us lend a hand, in this list, in particular, we’re going over the top Nintendo Switch video games launching in 2018.
The latest and perhaps greatest-ever Zelda is a sprawling affair set in an open Hyrule not bound by the familiar progression structure of past games: you can freely explore the land, take on challenges in any order you choose, and craft, survive, and experiment in the wilds. Kicking the tried-and-true format to the curb has revitalised the franchise, and the result is absolutely brilliant.
Turn-based combat has been at the core of nearly every popular Pokémon video game. But when Pokkén Tournament debuted for the Wii U in 2016, players got their first taste of what it’s like to battle Pokémon melee-style outside of the few playable characters in Super Smash Bros. The new version of Bandai Namco’s Tekken and Pokémon mashup brawler for the Switch is even better, especially considering it addresses some of its predecessors’ biggest shortcomings. Most notably, Pokkén Tournament DX adds more playable Pokémon and a new three versus three team battle mode, among other changes.
The Switch’s biggest shortcoming is its online chat function in the Nintendo Switch Online app. For one thing, it only works with Splatoon 2. Another is the fact that you can’t use online chatting at all directly from the Switch. You have to use a second device, like an iPhone. Here’s where SteelSeries saves the day. They updated their most popular headset, the Arctis 3 with Bluetooth support. Not only that, but they also made the Arctis 3 capable of combining audio from two different devices. So, you can plug them directly into your Switch for in-game audio, plus connect them to your iPhone via Bluetooth so you can talk to friends through your preferred online chat channels like Discord. It’s truly the best of both worlds.
Classified as a tactical role-playing video game, Disgaea 5 Complete is both over-the-top in its multiple strategies and hilarious story, offering hundreds of hours of content. Players can recruit new units and select over 50 jobs and classes that can be expanded upon as they level up; up to 100 characters can be displayed on the screen while in battle. The game comes included with multiple language options, with complete English and original Japanese in-game voices.
