Take a look at this week’s bumper crop of new Nintendo Switch releases.
There’s a mix of old games, new games, and new games that remix old games.
Stating with the new, we have Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, which comes to Nintendo Switch as a free-to-play title supported by seasonal content updates. It’s a chaotic and fun game that’s well worth trying… assuming the port is up to scratch.
Ubisoft’s Roller Champions is another free-to-play multiplayer game. It was released on other platforms last month and hasn’t been a runaway success. Nonetheless, it seems to have found an appreciative core audience of players, so it’s definitely another one to try.
Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is Nintendo’s big release of the month. It takes characters from Fire Emblem: Three Houses on a hack-and-slash adventure full to the brim with fan service.
Older games making a comeback include two retro compilations – Sonic Origins and Capcom Fighting Collection – plus an enhanced version of the classic point-and-click adventure, Blade Runner. We’re also tempted by the remastered trio of Shadowrun classics.
Here’s a look at the currently confirmed Switch release list. Expect a few updates throughout the week.
