Six months on and Nintendo Switch’s family-friendly flexibility has changed how I play video games – Telegraph.co.uk
It almost seems quaint to think back on early concerns about the Switchâs library. Not that it wasnât a worry, with the launch line-up unquestionably thin. What went largely unpredicted, was how Nintendoâs modest but relatively steady stream of releases would serve up such quality and variety. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with its extraordinary sense of adventure, is talked of as one of the finest games ever made. Even with Ganon long defeated, I still return to Hyrule to clear remaining side-quests and hunt down new shrines. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe followed, a re-release of a Wii U game, granted, but a generous one given new life by the Switchâs quirks. Arms we have discussed, while Splatoon 2 continued Nintendoâs colourful take on the multiplayer shooter. Then came Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, a wonderfully weird twist on tactics. By the end of the month weâll even have FIFA. Which by my count for big ticket releases covers grand adventure, racing, fighting, shooting, strategy and sport. Most packaged up in Nintendoâs trademark ebullience, of course, which may not be to everyoneâs taste.
