Even though it's one of those cheaper eShop titles that, like many others, could simply be overlooked, 'Missing Features: 2D' manages to stand out. With an interesting idea and good pace that keeps the player's attention. There are a considerable amount of problems, though — but if you're curious enough about the premise, it's worth giving it a try for yourself.

DC Super Hero Girls: Teen Power is, above all, a by-product of the cartoon that bears the same name. If you or your child are super fans of the original material, it's not hard to really appreciate what's been done here. If that's not the case, there's no good reason for you to go out of your way and play the game, but playing it wouldn't be that bad either. Although the story is simple and the combat a bit truncated, the city's open-world exploration and the amount of additional content surprise and entertain enough. In general, the title ends midway, however, for a licensed game without many expectations, the result tends to be positive.

7.5 / 10.0 - Miitopia
Jun 3, 2021

Myitopia is certainly a peculiar game. The simplicity of its systems and the constant repetition of its gameplay could easily make it just boring and tiring. However, the charisma and heart of the game manage to turn this formula into an addictive experience at times — if consumed in moderation, of course. If you forget about the roleplaying side a bit and accept Miitopia as a slower, more uncomplicated simulation pastime, it's easy to have a good laugh and have a lot of fun.

9.5 / 10.0 - Cyber Shadow
May 12, 2021

It is easy to enjoy Cyber Shadow, as well as to realize that it is the fruit of a lot of love and hard work. The title is undoubtedly one of the most striking releases of 2021 and an indie that deserves to be remembered (and played) for a long time, especially on the Switch. This is a refined game as a whole, which knows how to respect nostalgia without fear of taking certain liberties and fully addresses the issue of the highest difficulty. Be sure to give Cyber Shadow a chance.

New Pokémon Snap is a beautiful gift for Pokémon fans. Especially for lovers of the first Snap, who yearned for a continuation for more than 20 years. It is exciting to go back to the Pokémon world with a camera in hand and discover everything new. Perhaps the specific genre of photo simulator is not for everyone, given that it calls for a certain high level of patience. However, if you are looking to relax a little in the midst of the world's confusion, taking a deep breath with your heart, eyes and ears wide open, surely New Pokémon Snap is the ideal game.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town has potential, some good ideas and a certain unfulfilled ambition hidden behind some layers of performance problems and strange game design choices. The game is fun enough as a farm simulator and will likely please fans enough, but certain issues are glaring and hinder the fun. Story of Seasons became more daring, but at the same time it forgot some basic elements. If you are very curious, at least wait for the updates, which will certainly improve the experience as a whole.

8.5 / 10.0 - UnderMine
Feb 22, 2021

Undermine is, unlike many of his contemporaries, a memorable and respectable roguelike. The title masterfully reproduces several classic elements of the genre and brings its own spirit to a formula that is somewhat beaten. Enthusiasts of roguelikes, dungeon crawlers and very challenging games full of content will love to venture into this dangerous gold mine full of personality. Unfortunately, Switch owners, again, have to accept a not-so-optimized experience, but at least it doesn't get in the way that much.

Re: Zero - Starting Life in Another World - The Prophecy of the Throne delivers exactly what can be expected from a visual novel with light elements of tactical and adventure games, and not the other way around. The visual novel also ends up limiting its audience by not explaining Re: Zero's events very well before the game's plot begins, and fails to hide certain events from the visual realm, but Re: zero fans will certainly appreciate this alternative view of the third arc of history, which is quite faithful to the tone and spirit of the original work.

Persona 5 Strikers is a great game. If you played and liked P5, being able to revisit these characters and follow the plot of Strikers will be a beautiful gift. Going further, it's amazing to be able to play Persona with an action combat system and see how well everything works. Musou fans and people who don't know Persona may need to adapt a little to really understand Strikers and must be open to many moments when the action stops completely, but I believe it is impossible not to appreciate a work that hits on so many points as Persona 5 Strikers. The Switch is probably not the ideal platform for you to live this adventure, but it does its job well.

Sword of the Necromancer certainly had potential, however, in the state the game is in, it is difficult to recommend it. Looks like the game is in its early stages of development, as it seems to be incomplete and without knowing very well its reason for existing. Aside from the story and the main idea of summoning defeated monsters, very little of the game is worthy, which is a shame.

4.5 / 10.0 - Space Crew
Jan 3, 2021

Space Crew is a strategy indie with a simple and adorable appearance, but with complex and well-built mechanics. The problem is that the title is lost in the presentation of its ideas and ends up delivering a repetitive experience without much space for experimentation. Space Crew could have been much more, but it ends up looking incomplete.

Shiren The Wanderer is not exactly relaxing, on the contrary: the game is intense and cerebral, like a chess game in many moments. In addition, there is not much to explore beyond its main purpose: constant adventures in dungeons generated in a procedural way. However, this is not exactly a problem. The gameplay of the game is its strong point and, within the specific subgenre of the Mystery Dungeons, it delivers an almost perfect experience.

4 / 10.0 - WarriOrb
Dec 13, 2020

Warriorb sins at the point that I consider most central in a video game, entertainment. The game is not only not fun, but also not pleasant to look at, hear or play. The feeling of spending my time in this world was like buying a game just for the cover, just to regret it bitterly after 10 minutes. Even so, amid the mistakes, stumbles and bumps of this unpleasant environment, something still remains in the memory. I believe the idea of a challenging platform game focused on more "realistic" ball physics is quite interesting, but the title has failed to make it work.

6 / 10.0 - Star Renegades
Nov 28, 2020

I tried very hard to enjoy my time with Star Renegades on the Nintendo Switch, but the game itself kept me from moving forward steadily. It is a pity that such a different and well thought out title, with excellent dialogues, a deep and layered combat, great art and soundtrack is such a bad experience on our beloved hybrid console.

Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin is a really unique game. The end result may not have reached a certain level of exceptional quality, but the attempt to do something new has certainly reached its goal. As much as the central mechanics are bound to become tiring, it manages to blend two very different genres with mastery, and this is something very worthy of respect. If you like farm simulators, action platforms or simply indies who are not afraid to invent their own formula, Sakuna is a good option.

3 / 10.0 - Prehistoric Dude
Oct 21, 2020

Prehistoric Dude is a short and uninteresting adventure, where much of your time is spent walking over bushes trying to see enemies. Jumping through obstacles, the limited combat and te repetitive exploration are never intriguing or rewarding. The visuals and the soundtrack also do not deliver any particular positive points. The title is not horrible in itself, but it definitely fails to be interesting in almost 100% of its aspects.

7.5 / 10.0 - Ikenfell
Oct 15, 2020

Old-fashioned role-playing fans, Harry Potter and other magical school environments fans, and enthusiasts for retro games in general will certainly appreciate Ikenfell. Unfortunately, some points prevent the title from becoming really unmissable or extremely memorable. The biggest problems are the structure of the narrative and the unbalanced challenge of the confrontations, but the overall package appeals to several points, such as its visuals, soundtrack, striking story and unique battle system.

6 / 10.0 - Going Under
Oct 10, 2020

Going Under deviates a little from the path of an ideal roguelike. Instead of enjoying the wonderful visuals, the great soundtrack and the fun premise to make a captivating, agile and action-packed game, the title loses a little focus on what really matters. It is possible to spend some good hours of fun with the game, but the technical problems in the combat, the little variety inside the dungeons (and outside them), the lack of information in some moments, and the excess of exposure in others, made that I never fully get caught up in the adventure.

It is difficult to find a reason why someone who has a Switch does not purchase Super Mario 3D All-Stars. There is a certain lack of polish in the visual presentation of the collection, and it doesn't make much sense for Mario 64 not to run at 60 fps in 1080p widescreen in 2020. However, as much as this collection could be better, it currently offers the best way to play these three absolute classics of video game history.

6 / 10.0 - West of Dead
Sep 10, 2020

West of Dead has a great premise and manages to deliver a fun combat that certainly has its layers. As any good roguelike, you must master the mechanics of the game and go through a good number of runs before you can expect any success. However, there is a feeling of lack of polish thanks to some poor game design choices that prevents the experience from being truly memorable.
