Shinsekai: Into the Depths
Top Critic Average
Genres: Adventure, Action
Shinsekai: Into the Depths falters from time to time, but it more than makes up for its shortcomings with an original premise, immersive sound design, and expert worldbuilding. If you end up playing this game – and I strongly recommend that you do – just make sure to wear headphones.
Even if you notice its "humble" mobile origins and it's not really very spectacular, Capcom has helmed and interesting view on the metroidvania genre, with nice ideas, a not very explored setting and a style that maybe can result repetitive, but it's fun and will hook up the genre fans. Special mention for the sound: play it with headphones.

Fans of whimsical, artful indie titles will find much to love about Shinsekai Into the Depths, and ardent Metroidvania purists will get a kick out of its aquatic take on the genre. It's not going to be everyone's favorite game for the Nintendo Switch, but I'll be damned if it doesn't top at least one person's list.
