super mario odiseja
Mario is one of Nintendo’s best-known characters in the wider world of video games. Super Mario Odyssey is a platform game released in the same year as Switch, and has proven to be a pleasant rebirth for the most famous plumber’s adventures. As usual, Princess Pitch has been kidnapped by the infamous Bowser … And Mario must go on a long journey to save his beauty. But it’s Mario’s companion, a live cap named Cappy, who plays the originality. Our hero can throw it at his enemies to control or attack them, as well as serve as a temporary platform. Super Mario Odyssey is an exploratory adventure offering a wide range of games.
Metroid Dread, released in 2021, is the latest licensing opus and probably one of the best. We discover that Samusa Arana, the heroine with armor, is facing new threats to the game that seem to be returning to the beginnings of the saga. Samuss travels to the planet ZDR to discover strange broadcasts of X-parasites, which are thought to have long since become extinct, and to find out what’s going on in this hostile world. The storyline between action, exploration and infiltration is captivating and will create nostalgia for any licensee. Flowing gameplay, a balanced level of difficulty and a wide range of abilities ensure the success of Metroid Dread.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate
The famous arena fighting game released in 2018. From Mario to Bayonetta using Pikachu or Link, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate brings together a total of 75 characters. If most of them had already appeared in previous games, there are a dozen new ones, such as Marie (Animal Crossing) or Daisy (Super Mario). The rules couldn’t be simpler: attack your opponents until you knock them out of the court to keep them last. Controlled gameplay, a wide range of courses and objects, a great soundtrack. A good game to have a good time alone or with others, although we soon fully recover from these fiery battles. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a real key element of Switch.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
The best racing game and just a cult game! Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has topped Nintendo’s top since its release in 2017 and currently sells a total of 43.35 million copies. The heroes of Super Mario, together with leading Nintendo licensors such as Splatoon or Zelda, meet in an epic and colorful race. Players can compete in several types of races, mini-games and 32 tracks in the basic game only. To this number are added 48 new DLC races that are gradually coming. With family, friends or even alone, the Mario Kart formula has always convinced its wide audience, and this latest opus only reaffirms this rule.
Luži mansion 3
If Mario is Nintendo’s most famous hero, his brother Luigi is also entitled to his adventures. In Luigi Mansion 3, released in 2018, our hero has to face his fears again and go on a ghost hunt in a ghost mansion. Armed with his ghost vacuum cleaner, Luigi will have to explore a horrific house and rescue friends who have fallen into a trap set by Amber Brusquade and King Boo. This third opus of Luigi’s mansion marks the return of Gooigi, the slimy green version of our plumber, with special and very useful abilities for this adventure among the ghosts. The game is still a great Nintendo classic with a rich gameplay and an unforgettable atmosphere.
Fire emblem: three houses
Fire Emblem: Three Houses, released in 2019, is the thirteenth game in the tactical RPG saga and the first to be released on the Nintendo Switch platform. Players take on the role of Bylet, a mercenary who does not remember his past and is in the middle of a political conflict. Fire emblem: Three houses are successful. Organizing fights in teams is a nice rebirth for the saga, we also appreciate the units’ wide specialization opportunities and the reception of scenarios with choices that are important. Despite the slightly static staging, the game is still a great opus!
Triangle Strategy is a tactical RPG in the same way as the Fire Emblem, released on March 4, 2022. Three countries are competing to control the extraction of salt and iron. In addition to fighting that will require strategy, players must make choices that directly affect the story, especially during political voting, where other heroes need to be persuaded. This is a particularly original point for this game, the ending of which varies depending on these different choices. A beautiful visual image and a high-quality soundtrack complete this very engaging scenario. The triangle strategy is a nice surprise.
Curby and the forgotten world
Kirby and the Forgotten World, released recently (March 25, 2022), is Nintendo’s new hit. The game is the latest of the little pink ball licenses, born in 1992. Once Kirby is sucked into the black hole, he enters a forgotten world and will have to be rescued from an evil being. This time we modify the formula: it’s still a platform game, but in a 3D and open world. And it is a success for our lovely travel companion! Even though the game is generally simple, it is very enjoyable both visually and in terms of gameplay, and creates a good rebirth of the license.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
It’s time to gently finish this selection. Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a historic game because it was a foreclosure game that arrived just in time for players to escape while staying home. The new opus is once again moving players to this beautiful world of animals and good mood. Take care of your vegetable garden, go fishing, make objects, cook, decorate your island and house … No pressure on Animal Crossing, just rest and escape. On the other hand, the game is less rich than its predecessors, even after two years of release and with the DLC of Happy Homes Paradise. But we forgive him, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a pleasure to play, and that’s the name of the Nintendo Switch.
