While Civilization VI on Nintendo Switch lacks online multiplayer, it's amazing to see how well it runs on the handheld console even with its limited technical abilities. With brilliantly adapted UI elements and controls for the Nintendo Switch, Civilization VI almost feel as native to the hybrid console as it is to the PC.
While the first title was a great start for a genre long forgotten, NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 fell into the modern day trap of microtransaction schemes. A shame considering it's a solid game, accessible for all, and visually correct on all consoles with an upgrade to its multiplayer mode.
Bandai Namco set a goal to adapt My Hero Academia into a video game, and the overall result is quite decent in My Hero One's Justice.

Disgaea 1 Complete brings back the franchise to life and gives a chance for newcomers to experience a stellar game that amazed players humour in the days, it does it so with impressive combat, characters and a stellar soundtrack.

With a new world to discover, Assassin's Creed Odyssey continues on the path set by Origins, giving more choice to the players, with a bigger focus on RPG and the comeback of naval warfare. A definitive evolution of the series, and shouldn't be missed.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is a fine expansion, and by listening to its community, Bungie with the help High Moon Studios managed to bring back some life into what was a rough year for the franchise. Let's hope they sustain the hype with a steady flow of content and fun activities until the next expansion.
Soleil's Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker is definitely a game for fans of the franchise that want to have a different experience than the CyberConnect2 series. While not perfect, it offers an interesting experience based on multiplayer and cooperation.
The Spectrum Ward is a creative little title that manages to craft an interesting world and some memorable moments, but it feels a bit lacking in the gameplay department. Still, while its puzzles may not wow, it’s an experience worth having
