Nintendo had a big week with their Switch Presentation and game announcements. Needless to say, we are excited! Jo and I discussed the list of the games we are most pumped for.
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild
Scheduled Release: March 3, 2017
Releasing the same day as the console, Breath of the Wild has been in the works for almost four years. The beautiful graphics, seamless open world, and added voice acting makes this one of the most impressive Zelda’s to date.
2. Super Bomberman R
Scheduled Release: TBA
Now this is a name that we haven’t heard in years and it’s awesome that this franchise is getting a much needed reboot.
3. Super Mario Odyssey
Scheduled Release: Holiday 2017
Mario. The Switch. New York?! The animated plumber that we’ve come to love as one of our own family members is not only making the big jump to Nintendo’s latest system, but to the Big Apple itself. Color us STOKED!
4. Splatoon 2
Scheduled Release: Summer 2017
Splatoon burst on to the scene just a few years back and made a quick splash with its colorful, action packed world. It won numerous multi-player of the year awards, as well as our Best New Franchise of 2015. Splatoon seems tailor made for the Switch and you know where you’ll find Jo and Pawlak this Summer. PS – they should market it as “Splatwon.”
5. Mario Kart 8: Deluxe Edition
Scheduled Release: April 28, 2017
To many, this is a Wii U game that is porting over to the Switch. For us, it’s an exciting package that features all of the game’s previous DLC and a huge chance for gamers who never dove into the Wii U to show off their new system in a party-like atmosphere.
What did you find most exciting about the Switch’s launch window games? Which ones top your list? Leave your comments below!
