But away from Breath of the Wild’s unique structure, it’s the puzzles themselves that make the game feel the most satisfying. While previous games rigidly allow for a single solution to each puzzle, BotW’s physics-based problem solving means that there are often multiple solutions to each challenge depending on how you combine your various skills.
Led by former Castlevania series producer, Koji Igarashi, comes the upcoming action-adventure game Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. The video game is in the style of Metroidvania as you explore, craft new weapons, and of course, find new armor.

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.
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.
This is a nice add to my video game collection. I am enjoying the different modes this console can be played in and have taken on a trip already. The Switch is very comfortable and makes for a great gaming experience on the go.
The Nintendo Switch is by far the most dissapointing Nintendo console they ever made. The lack of games is the biggest problem. There are very few games on the console and the best games , Zelda Breath of the wild and Mario Kart 8 are also available on the Wii U system which makes it even more useless. There is also many rports of problems with the stand and scratch made to the screen and problems with the controllers. I dont recommend buying this console unless you are a huge Nintendo fan.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is best with multiplayer, allowing up to four players to share the screen locally as they go head-to-head on their TV in split-screen mode. There are over 42 characters, 48 tracks and various vehicle combinations like motorcycles, providing for a definitive and full experience of a Mario Kart racing game. Best of all, kids can take their Switch out for a handheld mode adventure and play with others who have the game.
A wonderful-looking platformer with a clever concept. It’s based around paint that is splattered around each stage by various guns and gizmos. Each colour affects your character differently; you can climb walls covered in red paint and bounce off yellow paint, for example. Combine that with a water gun used to trigger switches and collect special gold-flaked paint for bonuses, and the result is a brilliantly creative platform game that plays like an unlikely mix between Super Meat Boy and Splatoon.
Enter platform paradise. Rayman Legends offers some of the best platform gaming available today. True, the Switch edition doesn’t really offer anything new compared to the versions on other consoles, but it’s still a must-buy. It gorgeous to look at. The controls are precise and responsive. And, at the end of each stage, there’s a rhythm level that kicks the experience up a notch with music that syncs up with your jumps. Platform on the go and slide your Joy-Cons out to share the experience with a friend in local multiplayer.
There’s so much to like about Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers it is hard to know where to begin. From its engorged character roster (there are 19 combatants) to its excellent selection of game modes including a slick multiplayer suite, and onto its plethora of neat extras including new and improved graphics and sound options (you can switch between old and new), colour editor, replay system, beginner-friendly “Lite” control option and art-stuffed gallery mode, this classic versus fighter is better than ever on Nintendo Switch.
Major retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy and Target all have buy pages for the Nintendo Switch. (Currently, Amazon has stock of the Switch in Gray and Neon Blue/Red and is the only store that can deliver it on time for Christmas).
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.
Aside from letting you take a great game on the go, the Switch version of LA Noire has some neat features such as motion control support. This means you can pick up evidence at crime scenes and inspect it from every angle using the Joy-Con controllers.
Much like our Yoshi pick in this list, Kirby is another fan-beloved character from Nintendo who has starred in his own video game titles for a number of years now. The Nintendo Switch will soon have its own Kirby video game title in 2018 as well with Kirby Star Allies.
TOKYO — Nintendo Co Ltd on Friday priced its first console in about four years above market expectations, disappointing investors and clouding its prospects of back gamers who have shifted from consoles to smartphones.
Gritty and rough, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a role-playing game that’s straightforward in its turned based combat, taking elements from former JRPGS of the past and modernizing it into a solid RPG experience. For anyone who wants to understand the familiarities of how role-playing games work, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is a good starting point for any beginner.
Major retailers such as GameStop, Target, Walmart and Best Buy as well as Nintendo’s flagship New York store all carry the new console, though some locations have better stock than others. We recommend following your retailer of choice on social media as well as calling up your nearest brick-and-mortar shops often to get the latest updates on availability.
It’s a pricey investment at $110, but it is a perfect accessory for the Switch gamer on the go that also has style. It comes in black ballistic nylon with black leather, black ballistic nylon with chocolate leather, and my personal favorite, waxed canvas with chocolate leather.
Finally, not having any kind of backward compatibility with Wii U was a tough hit for the few of us that actually supported Nintendo during their hard times and had a Wii U. I would love to be able to import my digital games and saves from the last console (like the Wii U allowed to do from the Wii) but they completely ignored us. Considering that 2 of the best games of Switch are available on Wii U (Zelda and Mario Kart) and that another one is barely an expansion on a Wii U one (Splatoon 2 doesn’t add that much from Splatoon 1) you would think that it wouldn’t be that hard for them to at least give us Wii U players a discount for a digital version upgrade from a Wii U to Switch game.
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.
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.
Born out of Harvest Moon, it makes perfect sense that Stardew Valley fits right at home on the Switch. The farming life sim is wonderfully open ended, letting you forge your own country path with fishing, fighting, farming, and falling in love. Additionally, being able to take advantage of the Switch’s sleep mode helps take some of the pressure off of not being able to save in the middle of a day, even if a few other bugs in the port are still waiting to be squashed here. – Tom Marks
Project Octopath Traveler, which is currently still a working title, is an upcoming RPG title by developers Square Enix and Acquire. The video game will be a 2D 16-bit style RPG where players will control a part of eight different characters, all of which will have a role to play and reason for their journey.
Unsurprisingly, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe plays exactly like Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. Thanks to Switch’s fantastic different form factors, multiplayer Mario Kart has literally never been as fun nor as instant. It’s 100% an essential purchase.
Who said for you to enjoy a game, you need to look at the screen? Nintendo Switch has something that will help you throw an incredible party anywhere with anyone. In this game, players look and face each other and not the screen. You and your friend or for this case, opponent, will get into real world actions like a copycat dance-off, cow-milking competitions, and wild-west duels.
