Nintendo said more than 50 game software makers are developing 80 titles for the Switch. Of those, eight will be available at the time of launch in Japan, including “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.”
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.
“The machine can be used both as a home console and handheld device so the higher price is understandable to some extent, but there aren’t really enough software titles to justify that start price,” he said.
Don’t underestimate this Wii U classic. It’s had an upgrade for the Switch. Decidueye brings the total playable Pokemon to 21 and Litten and Popplio have been drafted in as support. The new ‘team battle’ mode lets you assemble a three-Pokemon team and the ‘group match’ feature helps you find opponents of a similar skill. Master the single player Ferrum League, get stuck in to ranked online battles, or grab a sofa and share your Joy-Cons for a local match with your mates.
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.
Game UK has eight console bundles that start at £400 with free shipping. Very also has the console for £280 and bundles starting at £310. Amazon UK had the system available for £279 with free shipping to buyers in the UK, but is currently out of stock, though third-party sellers are offering it for around £280 and up.
This has caused some retailers to try new things when selling the system. Amazon briefly had the systems but only for Prime subscribers. There are also many new accounts in the third-party seller section with no feedback that are selling the system for far below market cost. Stay far away from these. The price seems to start around $400 for legit third-party offerings; look for sellers with a long history of positive feedback.
Those waiting for a new instalment in Nintendo’s super-fast F-Zero series of racing games will find lots to like here. Developer Shin’en has a reputation for pushing Nintendo systems to their graphical limits; RMX offers silky-smooth futuristic racing at extremely high speeds. Its clever colour-shifting mechanic – you have to flip between two exhaust colours to trigger speed boosts – at times makes it feel like a racing version of cult shooter Ikaruga.
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
Play your games wherever. Sounds like an easy thing to ignore, but trust me you will get used to it fast and love the fact that you can play while waiting for that lazagna you just put in the oven. At a picnic? Play Switch with your family. Fishing? Play at your own risk – but it’s possible. On a plane? Go ahead! In bed? That’s right. There isn’t an infinite library of games at the moment, but there are already good enough games that will keep you busy as newer titles arrive. Zelda is an obvious choice, but check out Shovel Knight, Fast RMX and Snake Pass on the eShop. Mario Kart is also right around the corner! Battery is fair for a device of this caliber. WiFi signal is strange, though… get an ethernet to USB adapter for online gaming when docked. You may have one from the Wii and Wii U era. I have a gaming PC but haven’t turned it on much since Switch release day. It’s amazing. I highly recommend it the console!
Splatoon 2 is a multiplayer shooter unlike any other, and it’s exactly the charming outing you’d expect from Nintendo. Instead of bullets, your weapons are filled with coloured ink used to splat your enemies and cover the environment in paint.
Also, unlike some other cases, the Hori Tough Pouch strikes a gentle balance between protection and convenience. Because you only put your Switch into it when you’re done playing, it doesn’t change how you grip the console or its Joy-Con controllers.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is a turn-based tactical role-playing video game where kids are encouraged to rely on their critical thinking skills. The game features both single and multiplayer modes and features characters from the beloved Mario and Raving Rabbids series.
If it’s competitive multiplayer you’re after, look no further. This insane fighting game pits kaleidoscope-coloured, springy-armed combatants against each other in up to 4-player battles. There are 15 fighters with dozens of interchangeable arms. Mix and match to suit your play-style and take three pairs into battle. Use standard controls, or for an immersive fighting experience, grip one Joy-Con in each hand with your thumbs on the triggers. Tilt together to move, tilt in to block, and get punching.

This Nintendo switch is the off spring of the wii u and Nintendo 3ds ! It’s a hybrid between both devices! Nintendo was trying to make this item and ran out of time and made one of mock ups! But they got it right this time! The maneuverability is great I take it where ever when ever! Haven’t taken it to a friends house yet but I imagine the only hiccup will be getting the dock’s hdmi wire and power adapter out of the spaghetti of wires behind my entertainment table ! Any way I love it you’ll love! It gets expensive real fast though! You only get the console, control combiner thing and wires in box! No games. I hate the feel of the controls when in dock mode so I bought the pro controller! Separately ! You have to buy a game! Separately ! You want to protect you new switch you have to buy case and screen protector! Separately ! But it’s worth it! I would recommend this device to everyone and I will soon be ready to purchase another one but I’m waiting until Best Buy bundles the switch with atleast a game! I give it 5stars!
