You can expect a series of characters to return from BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena, Under Night In-Birth, along with RWBY. Unfortunately, there’s no specific release date attached to the video game quite yet other than developers stating the game will launch at some point in 2018.
GameStop is also offering bundles for $599.99 that are guaranteed to arrived by April 16, but that’s a lot of money to make sure you get a system. The bundle also includes some items that you may not want to buy, such as Just Dance 2017 and the Breath of the Wild strategy guide.
The Switch is more proof that technology is definitively getting to the convergence of stationary and mobile. It is a very delicate balance among portability and performance, Ergonomically, the device is a huge success, I can play for hours and my hands can manage it without any issue, much more comfortable than a 3DS-XL. The joysticks and buttons are at the true minimal size to preserve functionality while ensuring compactness. Screen size is also at the right dimensions to avoid being too small and provide enough detail at 720P. I have played with it mostly on portable mode, once in a while plugged to recharge as playing. A few times played on the TV, going back quickly to portable to enjoy the opportunity to play on bed. My only major concern is the limited battery size, I wish Nintendo could just add a few extra grams and getting a more useful 4-5 hrs playing time.
I’ve been waiting very very patiently since the very beginning of march when the switch first came out to purchase one. Not once has either of the switches (red/blue, or grey) been available online or in stores. It’s been almost 2 whole months and I keep getting the “we sold the last one earlier today/yesterday”, “our last one just sold a few minutes ago”, “come back tomorrow”, and “check on our website daily” lines every time I go there and ask about it. Not once have either variations/editions of the system been available ever. Usually I’m really patient with this stuff, but I’m getting really frustrated that magically every employee at Best Buy has “sold the last one” minutes before I entered the store, and that none are ever available online. I even tried pre paying in advanced because I was told to do that by a friend of mine who bought a switch that way, and they wouldn’t accept that either. Such a shame Best Buy….such a shame.
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.
Want to play games with other people? You can do this right out of the box, actually, by turning each of the Joy-Con on its side and using those as individual gamepads. It’s a less-than-great solution — they’re tiny, uncomfortable, and easily dropped.
It’s a nice bonus, no doubt, but it’s unfortunate that you more or less have to buy a microSD card if you’re looking at downloading anything more than a few small games. The good news is that microSD cards are relatively inexpensive, even for large ones. You could get by with something in the range of 64GB, though we’d suggest at least 128GB to start.
Sticking with non-exclusives, we arrive at the most downloaded Nintendo Switch game of 2017. Stardew Valley is a farming simulator. Fortunately, it’s not as boring as it sounds, in part thanks to its throwback pixel art graphics and chilled-out gameplay.
Super Meat Boy has been a sensation ever since it launched way back in 2010. Requiring unparalleled reflexes, superlative precision and the patience of a saint to overcome its incredible challenge, this is high-level 2D platforming at its finest.
This game requires you to unleash your imagination to create your own Skylanders that will battle Kaos and his minions. What’s fascinating about the game is that your own Skylanders will not go it alone; thanks to Eon who calls upon Senseis, the greatest mystic warriors of Skylands. Just like your own Skylanders, Sensies’ mission is to save Skylands from Kaos, and so they will fight alongside your own Skylanders for redemption.
There are also a number of tracking services such as Zoolert, BrickSeek, Now in Stock, and the recently created Nintendo Switch Finder, which promise to give shoppers a heads up where and when hard-to-find toys and electronics are available. Proceed with caution, though: These services tend to be hit or miss (some people complain the notices are inaccurate or too late to be useful), and you often have to subscribe to emails to receive alerts.

If you’re looking for a fun, accessible and downright hilarious multiplayer experience on Nintendo Switch, look no further than Snipperclips. With a Joy-Con in hand, you and up to four friends can work together or duke it out in a series of addictively creative puzzles.
Toy industry insiders agree these will be one of the top consoles for 2017. Stock levels are expected to fluctuate. Pre-orders launched in January 2017 and sellouts occurred within moments, much the same as it was with the NES Classic Edition Mini Console.
Having released on PS4, PC and Xbox One in 2016, Furi’s arrival on Switch be late but, like it’s siblings, it’s absolutely essential for anyone who loves a challenge. For those that don’t know, Furi is a neon-soaked, techno-futuristic action shooter that pits you against increasingly difficult boss fights as you break your way out of a maximum-security space prison. Visually, it’s as if Afro Samurai and Far Cry: Blood Dragon had a lovechild with a synthwave backing track. Brilliant.
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.
In Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, players lead a group of three heroes (like Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach) and four Rabbids. Each stage consists of a series of battles with turn-based gameplay, kind of like chess. The strategy turn-based action game is great for any kids and players who want to think tactically and play a game that’s a little more mature than the rest on the list. It’s not a hard game to play, but it is a hard game to master.
If you’re going to be taking your Switch on the go (and who isn’t?) then you probably want a good case to keep it protected. The Mumba Nintendo Switch case is a sturdy, rubber case that has a good grip to minimize the chance you’ll drop it. And should the unthinkable happen, the bumper is made of shock-handling thermoplastic polyurethane to keep your baby safe.
After the underrated Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U, the series returns once more on Switch with a similar yet refined take on the long-running JRPG universe. This time out the player is put in the shoes of protagonist Rex, who along with his compatriots Tora and Mia, proceed on a mission to discover Elysium, a paradise for humanity. Numerous obstacles and enemies lie in their way though, with players needing to master a auto-attack, special attack ‘Arts’ combat system that leans on well-timed attacks and combos to prosper. The series’ excellent voice acting and story telling will make Xenoblade Chronicles 2 an epic adventure.
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.
