With the holiday season quickly approaching it becomes clear that some awesome stuff is right around the corner for us gamers! However while I do have a few titles I’d recommend for PlayStation 4, I am going to preference my console of choice for this post. So let’s go through my top five games you should get for your Nintendo Switch! Let me start this list off in no particular order…
- Valkyria Chronicles 4 For Nintendo Switch sets up camp September 25th! Alright if you are like me and you love tactics based games with WWII aesthetics and brilliant animated cutscenes, then this one is for you. Set during the same time as the original Valkryia Chronicles, you lead squad e in their attempt to hold the line against a driving imperial force. Blizzards, godlike valkyria and strained friendships will test this group’s resolve and fortitude. I personally have always loved this games hand-drawn style and the English voice work is not necessarily bad. The game features fun additions to the tactics genre, such as ammo constrains and a “Blitz” system that gives it a unique charm. You can currently pre-order both the regular edition and collectors edition on amazon right now!
- Super Smash Bro’s Ultimate smashes its way onto the Switch this December 7th! The long awaited announcement of this title has kept many fans on the edge of their seat and while the lead up to the direct was met with mixed baggage, the actual event proved to be worth the wait. This is indeed the ultimate version of Super Smash Bro’s as it hosts a bevy of levels, characters, songs and features that spans pretty much all released Super Smash Bro’s games thus far. Personally, I am not the biggest fan of fighting games, but this one is a no-brainer; especially for Switch owners.
- The Banner Saga Trilogy marches home this September 21st. This gem of a game and years long obsession of mine finally finds a home, physically on the Switch. I did luck out and managed to get a review copy of the third entry, which you can read my review by clicking on this hyperlink! Still I think it is a game that everyone should consider visiting, especially if you enjoy Norse/Viking mythology as well as Tactics-Visual Novel-Organ Trail inspired games. This game has you following the characters Iver, Juno, Eyvind, Rook & Alette as they grapple with cataclysmic level events and the hope of finding a solution to the end of days. This saga is one of my favorite and again, hosts beautifully drawn art and a musical score that rivals the greats.
- Super Mario Party reinvigorates the beloved Mario Party genre this October 5th! After two terribly received Mario Party games, Nintendo has decided to rewind the clock. Starting fresh and anew, Super Mario Party seeks to bring the series back to it’s roots, with a few new additions to boot. I can personally say that I am thrilled and excited to see this come to fruition as a long time fan of the series. With new 2v2 game modes and mini-games that make excellent use of the Joy-Con’s, it is hard to imagine this game doing any worse than its prior two counterparts.
- Diablo 3 Eternal Edition Summons its way to the Switch December 21st! Okay I gotta just say this… I am beyond stoked for this game to launch on the Nintendo Switch. Long have I been wanting a Gauntlet inspired game to set foot on the unit. It only took Blizzard working in the shadows to pull off a bloody amazing port. It looks smooth, runs phenomenal and is a pure joy to see embracing every aspect of the Nintendo Switch! Plus when a port like this runs so smooth, it gives me hope that other third party developers will put the same level of effort into their games that they bring to the Switch.
So there you all have it! My top five games that you should definitely consider buying for your Nintendo Switch over any others! I hit the main ones that I am personally excited for, but if I missed any that you wants, feel free to leave a comment down below with your upcoming gaming picks! I cannot wait to see what the next year also brings us!
