Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is a faithful recreation of Abe's Oddysee, with many reworked mechanics and added Mudokens to save. Fans of the original should enjoy the changes Just Add Water implemented, while newcomers will be charmed by Abe's antics. The franchise has been influential since the late '90s, and New 'n' Tasty proves that the gaming sphere is better with more Oddworld titles in your library.
Fighting countless hordes of bad guys never got old and proved to be a fantastic way to relieve stress. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 is a game that's worthy of being in anybody's Switch collection. Step into the shoes of your favorite Straw Hat and enter the battlefield. Trust me — you won't be disappointed.
Puyo Puyo Tetris delivers a wonderfully chaotic experience that combines the fast paced Tetris gameplay and the more strategic Puyo Puyo formula that has been a staple of the franchise since its 1991 debut. As someone who has been a fan of Tetris since I was a kid with a Game Boy, the thought of playing a new iteration of the popular franchise on Nintendo's Switch made me anxious. What makes Sega's reimagining so memorable is the inclusion of the Puyo Puyo gameplay.
Entering minds as Morris showed me that though so many characters were dead, people still allowed them to live on because of what they left behind. I put down I Am Dead with a new lease on life, a unique sensation for a video game to deliver. It's a puzzle game with a lot of heart. The characters are engaging, the world is delightful, the message is strong, and it's a fantastic way to escape into a game for a few hours. Hollow Ponds and Richard Hogg created an unforgettable experience that Nintendo Switch owners should definitely pick up. I Am Dead taught me that death isn't the end, but in fact, just the next step in all of our journeys.
After a few lackluster installments, Capcom has brought the iconic hero back to his roots with impressive results. Mega Man 11 is a love letter to fans, and it brings one of my favorite characters into the spotlight once again. The old-school gameplay will please fans, and the new mechanics will offer players (both old and new) a challenging experience.
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker highlights one of the best secondary characters in the Super Mario universe, and gives him a stellar adventure. Fans of the Wii U version should pick it up for the portable experience and extra levels while those who didn't play the game in 2014 will find a lot to love. It's another fantastic addition to the continually growing Switch library, and I can't wait to see what Nintendo does with Captain Toad in the future. I had a blast with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Hopefully, this is not the last time we see the titular hero. He can easily go on more adventures, and I'd love to be along for every single one of them.
