    Right, I have bit the bullet and treated myself to a switch. I bought it with Luigi’s mansion 3 and also Mario kart 8 Deluxe.

    I have my eye on Mario odyssey and Super Smash Brothers but what am wanting to know from the community is what games would you recommend to get on the system?


    My first recommendations are…

    Super Mario Maker 2

    Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of An Elusive Age

    Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (and if you play it and enjoy it, consider Fire Emblem Warriors as well)

    Fire Emblem: Three Houses

    Pokken Tournament DX


    All you and Scuttlest mentioned are good, I also would recommend: (as with everything, check gameplay on Youtube to see if it’s for you)

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

    Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (+ Torna The Golden Country Add on)

    Bayonetta 2 (physical comes with a code for Bayonetta 1)

    Astral Chain

    Deadly Premonition Origins (if you never played the original)

    Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered

    Octopath Traveler

    Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

    Animal Crossing: New Horizons

    and for next month:
