Game News 6 Best Nintendo Switch Games for Summer

Yes, summer is here! If the period is of course conducive to going on vacation, it’s now or never to play video games. Today we are going to be looking at the best titles to do on Nintendo Switch. And between exploration, platform, sport, there is always something to do on the console of the Japanese manufacturer. Need inspiration? Follow the leader !

Pokemon Legends Arceus

If you missed an episode, know that Pokémon made a serious leap forward at the start of the year, with Legends Arceus. It’s the first time that the series offers a real open worldwhere famous pocket creatures roam free. The system for capturing them has also been completely modified with the possibility of launching a PokéBall in real time without going through a fight. All in all, a small revolution for the license, which will be largely inspired by the next Pokémon Scarlet / Purple. Legends Arceus is therefore an episode that any good fan must do, especially since it has quite a few qualities. It’s exhilarating to catch pocket monsters this way, especially in a storyline that evokes the beginning of their relationship with humans. There are even amazing action scenes against bosses. To do.

Kirby and the Forgotten World

We continue in an equally colorful world with Kirby, the famous little pink ball. The Forgotten World marks the first entry of the character into the 3D era with levels open on Switch. A change that does not happen alone. As Kirby spends peaceful days on Planet Pop, a strange black hole sucks him into the Forgotten World. Of course, a villain arrives and captures all of the cute Waddle-Dee. The chubby hero will then have only one objective, to find them all. To do this, he can count on the help of his friend Elfilin as well as on a new power: “Transmorphism”. Basically, Kirby can now change into everyday objects (car, stairs, traffic cone) to trigger new moves and search levels. Not to mention his precious ability: sucking in enemies and throwing fire / ice.

We are now opening a sports page to talk about Mario Strikers Battle League Football, the Nintendo-style football game that has just arrived on Switch. If you don’t know the formula, you take everything you know about the original discipline, keep the goals and both teams, and throw the rest away! The rule is that there is precisely no rule. It is possible to send the enemy into the background, to tackle it from behind, to send the legendary Nintendo objects to clear a path. The goal: to score more points than the opponent, no matter how. Of course, special strikes are on the program for more spectacle. But Battle League also deploys surprising depth of gameplay and very engaging. “Easy to learn but difficult to master as they say”. A very good surprise!

Nintendo Switch Sports

We continue in sweat with Nintendo Switch Sports, the successor to the famous Wii Sports, offered at the time with the Japanese company’s home machine. On the program, for this season, disciplines already seen in the past: chambara (wooden sword fight), bowling, tennis. But also some new ones: football, badminton, volleyball. From the fall, there is also golf that will be part of it. Generally, the motion-gaming is really successful despite some flaws on the football side (too much unnecessary running after the ball). The legibility of the action also becomes – and logically – too complicated from three players, a number which can go up to four. Apart from that, it’s guaranteed fun, especially with the family. Like Wii Sports, this Nintendo Switch episode easily manages to bring everyone together and agree. At the sports !

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder’s Revenge

We continue with a discipline that could well be a sport: breaking bad guys in turtle costumes! Yes, we are referring to Ninja Turtles Shredder Revenge, a new game from the French Dotemu (Streets of Rage 4). A new time, the studio hits hard with a great beat’em up. On the sidelines of an impeccable artistic direction, it is the gameplay that takes precedence. Of course, we find our four favorite turtles here – Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael. But it is also possible to embody Splinter, April and Casey Jones. The happy fellows are also divided into three categories: Range, Speed ​​and Power, to be chosen according to the situation. But apart from these different “classes”, the shots in general work wonders, with “incredible punch”. There is enough to do combos but also aerial sequences. But much more!

OlliOlliWorld

We end with a last game that smells of colors and holidays, OlliOlli World. If you don’t know the license, it’s a very fast skate game in horizontal scrolling. The goal: to chain short levels, pass challenges and of course make completely delirious figures. At this point, it’s pretty much a platform game on a skateboard. World also brings a lot of new features compared to the other OlliOlli. Beyond a colorful world that’s truly more engaging than in the past, you can now choose back roads and fly off from jumps to roll the other way. In addition, a new DLC “Void Riders” has just arrived and brings even more tasty little details. The icing on the cake: hundreds of items to customize your character. In short, it’s very complete, and we loved it!
