Super Mario Maker 2 is everything that made the original game great and more. Featuring an expanded toolkit, a well-paced story mode, an addicting endless challenge, and even online multiplayer, it is the definitive 2D Mario experience on the Switch and any console before it. Jump into a truly unlimited experience.
Super Neptunia RPG is a game I tried incredibly hard to like. Despite its stunning visuals and interesting ideas, the game falls short in far too many basic areas. From horrible loading times to lifeless NPCs, strange design choices, and an overall feel of a rushed release, it's something I can only recommend to the die-hard Neptunia fans out there that feel they must see it all. To you brave few, I wish you luck.
Yoshi's Crafted World is the type of game designed to take you away from the stress of modern life. Featuring gorgeous visuals, a refined control scheme, and a mountain if content to be uncovered, it's one I find myself able to recommend to almost any Switch owner.
Nelke and The Legendary Alchemists is a celebration of the Atelier series in the truest sense. Putting forward an experience both accessible to series newcomers and engaging for veterans, it does a brilliant job of captivating players despite its relatively easy to grasp gameplay loop. Though slightly let down by its RPG elements, it's a game I can recommend for anybody who enjoys careful planning and watching their efforts slowly come to fruition; your ideal town is right at your fingertips.
Ace Combat 7 is a marvel of combat flight simulation. Putting forwards a package both concise in nature and packed with features and quirks to promote replayability and exploration, it's a game I struggled to put down. If you enjoy flight simulation, air combat, or even just a mess of explosions, bullets and lasers, I encourage you to give it a shot.
New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe is yet another gem to be snatched from the obscurity of the Wii U and presented to the masses thanks to the Switch's popularity. Despite not featuring much in the way of new content, the addition of Toadette alone creates an entirely fresh way to play this almost seven year old title. For a fan of Mario, a fan of platforming, or just somebody who never had a Wii U, I cannot recommend it enough.
If I had to pick a single word to describe Nippon Marathon, it would be fun. While I struggle to ascertain exactly which part of this beautiful mess calls to me so, I can recommend it for anybody looking for a wild multiplayer experience. Pick up four controllers and get ready for the marathon of your life.
Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Definitive Edition is without a doubt the best Warriors game I have ever played, and to see it run so well on the Switch is fantastic to see. Featuring a seemingly endless ocean of content to be conquered, alongside an army of playable characters and arsenal of unique weaponry, it's a game I can recommend to any Warriors fan with no hesitation.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate lives up to its namesake. Putting forward a refined and polished console Smash experience in a form digestible both on the go and through all-night marathon sessions, it succeeds in bringing each unique joy of the series to the Switch. Though lacking a few iconic modes, it stands as one of the best games released for the console, whether playing alone or with friends.
