Okay, it’s not difficult to tell that we’re huge Nintendo Switch fans. Heck, we’re big Nintendo fans. With the warmer weather kicking in, and time spent mainly outdoors on the horizon, there are going to be those days when it is just too hot to do much – not that you need an excuse to play games, we don’t. When that time comes, here are the games worth checking out…
ANIMAL CROSSING NEW HORIZONS
If you haven’t heard the hype already about Animal Crossing, then where have you been? If there is one way to relax, then it’s spending time building your island. Suitable for anyone – young and old – this Switch game staple has to be one of the best 2020 releases. You’ll soon be wondering where time has gone once you start playing this. Bye-bye social life.
After inheriting your grandfather’s farm post the 9-5 office job you never liked, you’ll spend your time making friends and building a farm… amongst mining, building tools and doing awesome things. It’s a little like Minecraft and Animal Crossing rolled into one, along with a Farming Simulator type game without the heavy machinery and not actually having to look after your farm in such detail. It’s fun and will once again have you wondering where your days have gone.
PIKMIN 3 DELUXE
Whether you’re a fan of the Pikmin series or a newbie, you’ll love this game. Brittany, Charlie and Alph have been sent to the mysterious alien planet PNF-404 to retrieve fruit seeds. Along the way they will meet strange creatures that’ll help, just don’t put them in danger!
SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY
Of course a Mario game would be in this list, duh – in fact we have two! Arguably one of the best Mario games ever, Odyssey is a fantastic 3D world with a lot to accomplish. Using his hat you can control many things, such as baddies and objects, to further yourself through the game. Oh, and there are many outfits to buy and try on. Exciting!
SUPER MARIO 3D WORLD + BOWSER’S FURY
Based on the original Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U, this enhanced re-release has additional content for return gamers and new gamers alike. As with pretty much all Mario games, it’s a fun adventure that will keep you entertained for many hours. And anyway, who doesn’t want to look like a cat whilst saving Sprixies?
