It’s the most versatile console I’ve ever owned. I like that I can play on the TV and just pull it from the dock and continue in any other room in the house and/or take it with me wherever I go. Sure, it’s not the most powerful system, but it makes up for that with the exclusives and the portability factor.
When it comes to games, the most exciting sale happening right now is that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is only $45 on Amazon — the lowest price we’ve seen on it. (I‘ve played it on my Wii U twice already but I’m also going to pick it up for Switch because it’s that dang good.) Warner Brothers fans are having a good week too. On Fanatical you can pick up a bundle of Batman PC games plus a bunch of DLC valued at over $100 for $9.99, or mix and match three WB games on PC for $11.99. Microsoft is also selling the Batman Telltale series for just $10.
Dozens of retro-inspired 2D platforming games will likely come to Switch in its lifespan, but Slime-San’s unique blend of early Amiga game graphics, time-bending mechanics, and wet, slimy protagonist will continue to set it apart. With over 200 levels, tons of hidden collectibles, unlockable costumes and secret areas, hardcore platforming game players will find a ton to love in Slime-San. – Brian Altano

The UK scene for discounted Nintendo Switch deals is very competitive thanks to the large number of retailers trying to get your business. We usually find a strong selection of bundles every week nowadays, even in those quieter times of year not particularly known for sales. So take a look below for discounts on packages with games, hardware and accessories.
I love this thing. Unreal screen, snappy interface, and beautiful design. The different ways to play are absolutely perfect for my lifestyle with small kids and lots of work trips. Transition from portable to tv and back again is almost instantaneous. Love that I can put it in standby and pick it up exactly where I left it when I get back. I do have the screen scratch problem with my unit, but no one in their right mind should ever use a device with a plastic screen without putting on a screen protector. I always have and I always will, and the scratching is currently on the screen protector. I will probably still send it in for a dock repair at some point in case someone unwittingly removes the screen protector for whatever reason.
One of the top selling points of the Nintendo Switch is its ability to easily transform from a traditional gaming console into a handheld, portable one. You can dock your unit to access HD gaming on your television screen, or you can play anywhere by switching to handheld mode.
To 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.
So don’t go into this expecting a wildly different game from what you’ve played before. This is a traditional Street Fighter experience through and through, and the console’s form-factor makes it perfect for quick multiplayer sessions.
Taiwanese studio Rayark Games is responsible for this brilliant rhythm action title, which celebrates music from East Asian artists in a variety of genres including trance, pop, vocaloid and dubstep. Tapping, swiping and sliding notes as they appear on the Switch’s touch screen, it’s easy to get in the zone and feel like you’re controlling the music rather than responding to it. Deemo, from the same developer, is very similar but features a piano soundtrack.
Nintendo’s biggest Switch release of the holiday season, Super Mario Odyssey, just launched last week, though it isn’t the only major title still in store this year. Three mature titles–Doom, LA Noire, and Skyrim–all launch for the system within the span of a week in November, though as these aren’t published by Nintendo, they wouldn’t appear on these best-seller lists. The system’s next first-party title, the open-world JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2, releases on December 1.
Nintendo’s introductory video for Nintendo Switch demonstrated several other ways the console can transform to provide a range of exciting gameplay scenarios. While on the go, you can flip the kickstand at the back of the device to have it sit upright on its own. In this setup, you can remove the two Joy-Con controllers, holding one in each hand, and have total control over your games. On road trips or when hanging out with friends, compatible Nintendo Switch games offer split-screen multiplayer with each player using one Joy-Con controller. If your friends also have a Nintendo Switch console, the devices can wirelessly exchange data for thrilling multiplayer matches with up to four players, two on each Nintendo Switch console.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a turn-based tactical role-playing game that features Nintendo’s Mario alongside with Ubisoft’s Raving Rabbids franchise. The game includes both a single and multiplayer campaign mode with each level consisting of a series of battles. Each side, both the player and enemy, take turns moving around a battlefield while taking shots at one another with laser guns. The easy-to-learn-but-hard-to-master game takes into consideration the player’s positioning and range, maximum movements, as well as other conditions that make for a fun and strategic gameplay.
Convenience: Before you buy a Nintendo switch game, make sure it is handheld and can be used anywhere, at any time. In fact, most people go for these games because of their portability. Remember, fun is everywhere and so you will want to take the game with you.
Went to Timmys for lunch and saw this 20 something kid with a huge lump under his front jacket…weird so had to take another look and turns out it was a switch box. It’s hilarious because he held it like a first time dad holding a newborn lol.
Remember Knock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots? How about Punch-Out on the NES? Combine the two, and inject a dose of motion-controlled multiplayer mayhem, and you have Arms. The title refers to the extendable, weaponised limbs that each character packs.
We’re not quite sure how the Nintendo Switch has managed it, but we’re not even getting started with all the games that the console has on offer. Overwhelming much?

For all the nostalgia-driven indie gaming experiences we’ve had over the past decade, the long-running and much-loved world of Harvest Moon had gone curiously neglected until more recently. Stardew Valley is easily the best of these virtual farming love-letters, making vast improvements on core mechanics while adding its own unique flavor. It’s faithful enough that devoted Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons fans fell in love with it, but approachable enough that it introduced an entirely new group of gamers to the joys of a pixellated country life.—Janine Hawkins
Nintendo Switch is a gaming console that gives you the portability of a handheld device with the power of a home gaming system. At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to your TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home can travel with you wherever you go. The mobility of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display.
