Nintendo Switch bundle deals have stepped up a gear now and we’ve seen huge numbers of them selling in recent months as retailers have put together packages with extra games, controllers or accessories. Stock levels are so much better now compared to last year too.
The Nintendo Switch is by far the best gaming console for kid’s on today’s market. Nintendo has always had a brand that was loyal to families, assuring that it had more games that focused less on realism and violence, but more so on the pure fun that anyone can play.

The Joy-Con Grip is an additional accessory that joins the two Joy-Con controllers together, forming something something a bit more solid for you to hold thanks to the extended handles and plastic block between the two sides. The square dimension form-factor may remind older gamers of the Dreamcast controller, while everyone else will mainly be thinking how it resembles an odd-looking dog face. Nintendo is providing one in the box with the Nintendo Switch, so you won’t have to buy one separately. This won’t charge your controller though and doesn’t have a battery pack.
For all intents and purposes, this is classic Bomberman. You run around a maze dropping bombs, all the while trying to avoid getting caught in the subsequent explosions caused by both yourself and your opponents.
Splatoon 2 is a team-based, third-person shooter where players use colored ink to attack opponents and beat goals. Players can transform into squids and navigate through the ink that splattered in order to avoid detection. Various game modes include an online and offline multiplayer Turf War battle where players must cover the entire level with ink. The game features a variety of different weapons and is just as fun and intense as the more popular shooters on the market.
“Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is yet another great Nintendo Switch exclusive, and one of the most original Mario titles we’ve seen in a long time. It may not do much outside of the core combat, but even that is enough to keep you entertained for its duration.”
Playfulness is the main constant running through the large amount of varied content within Rayman Legends. Critics often try to avoid the word “fun” because it’s so subjective, but the only other game in recent memory that has so thoroughly embodied the most basic, universal and objective meaning of the word is Rayman Origins—much of which returns as unlockable bonuses within the already superior Legends. Revisiting classic gaming concepts with a timeless sense of humor that everybody can enjoy, Rayman Legends is a videogame without pretense, and that might be the most crucial decision its designers made without even realizing it.
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.
No matter if we’re talking about Hatchimals or Amazon Echo smart speakers, whenever there’s a consumer craze and it’s nearly impossible to find an in-demand item in stores, opportunistic resellers pop up online eager to make a buck.
Are you checking out Nintendo’s new console, hoping to make the “Switch”? These are the best looking games that are coming out for the Nintendo Switch – we just aren’t sure when. They don’t have to be launch titles, they just have to be coming sometime soon for Nintendo’s ambitious new handheld. Welcome to http://watchmojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Nintendo Switch Games That Look Promising!
Polygon’s sister site The Verge reported that the Asus Mixed Reality headset is now available for pre-order in the US. At $429, it’s definitely on the more expensive end of Windows’ VR offerings, but it does come with two motion controllers which offsets the price a little.
Some have dinged this one a bit (including our own review) for sticking too closely to the formula established by the Wii U original. It’s true that, at first, it can feel more like a remake than a sequel. In time though its unique attributes become more apparent, from the variety of weapons, to the new maps, to the various multiplayer modes that supplement the standard Turf War. Splatoon 2 might not break a lot of ground but it’s one of the most purely fun games to come out for any system this year.
With its birds-eye-view camera and 16-bit art direction, The Longest Five Minutes pays tribute to the 1990s RPG games of the past. The charming heartwarming story aims to be a practical RPG style game, filled with light-hearted comedy, unique characters and emotional storytelling that makes it an instant classic. The game makers behind The Longest Five Minutes are RPG fans themselves and have made a game specifically for fans that grew up playing them during their most prevalent decades.
With new weapons to choose from, local multiplayer, and a new type of Horde-style co-op mode, Nintendo’s colorful and wonderfully messy shooter is even better on the Switch. Splatoon 2 doesn’t feel substantially different than its Wii U predecessor, and that’s a good thing. The crown jewel of this sequel is the new Salmon Run co-op option, which requires you to splat Salmonoid enemies and gather special eggs along the way in order to progress. Shooter fans picking up a Nintendo console for the first time in a while should definitely consider giving Splatoon 2 a try.
The console has a number of exciting first-party and third-party titles. Already it exclusively has two of the most critically acclaimed titles of 2017 with The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. But it’s also home to big third-party offerings like FIFA, Doom, and Skyrim.

The Nintendo Switch launches today, the Japanese console maker’s first new system in four years. Here’s a list of brick and mortar and online retailers selling the Nintendo Switch, which has pricing at $399.99 CAD MSRP.
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 Nintendo Switch has been released in North America, and it’s going to be very hard to track one down. This list will give you a good idea about what retailers may have the units, and which retailers are a waste of time.
Combined with a charming 16-bit art style and some exhilirating level design, Celeste adds up to an absolute gem of a game. And if things get too tough? There are some genius features you can turn on to make your journey easier.
The Joy-Con controller is actually a pair of controllers that attach to the sides the the Nintendo Switch when not in use or when playing in tablet form away from the TV. When playing the Nintendo Switch on the TV, you can remove them and play with one in each hand. The left hand gets a controller with an analogue stick and d-pad, the right hand handles the one with a second analogue and the usual A, B, X and Y face buttons. Or you and a friend can use one each in multiplayer games with the d-pad doubling up as impromptu face buttons.
Mario Kart 8 began its life on Nintendo Wii U, however, the Deluxe edition on Switch is the ultimate version of the game, with all DLC included as well as enhanced multiplayer functionality. Mario and his chums handle just as well as ever, while the presentation and polish applied to the mixture of classic and new racing circuits is first rate. With a massive selection of racing tiers too, from 50cc up to 200cc, with mirror modes thrown in as well to boot, the game is super approachable no matter your age or skill.
Before considering a bundle, price each of the components out and think about which (if any) of the extras you actually want. GameStop has periodically been offering a $500 bundle that seemed like a fairly good deal, with a console and a few peripherals that many people would buy anyway, including two popular games (“Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe”). Unfortunately, that package has been sold out lately.
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.
Despite the swathes of changes to the Zelda template, Breath of the Wild still feels very much like a Zelda game. It’s more challenging than ever before, putting both your combat and puzzle-solving skills to the test, and every square inch of this ruined Hyrule aches to be explored. Take it from someone who’s played over 100 hours and still not finished it, there’s plenty to see and do in Breath of the Wild that makes this an absolutely essential purchase for every Switch owner.
