2.5D graphics engine, basic movies and dubbing, perhaps not too innovative a style of play. But we are still talking about a chapter of Metroid, indeed, a very valid chapter of Metroid. A practically obligatory purchase for fans of the saga.
It is certainly not new, but the arrival of a physical edition dedicated to Nintendo Switch could tempt more than one buyer.
Hades is one of the best roguelikes out there and undoubtedly the best work of Supergiant Games.
It is an experience created not only with love but also with attention to detail, supported by a structure full of upgrades, weapons and many ideas that refresh the session with every game.
Monster Hunter Rise
Pocket Monster Hunter, only this time it’s made ad-hoc for Nintendo Switch. Perfect for those looking for something similar to Monster Hunter World.
But to always have with them, with completely new ways to explore and hunt for ever larger prey. Before buying it, however, we recommend that you download and try the free demo.
Here we go again: Bethesda and id Software reign supreme when it comes to first person shooter on Nintendo Switch, and DOOM Eternal is no exception.
It must be said that it manages to be even more frenetic than its predecessor, but there are obviously those who will see it as an advantage, certainly not as a defect.
To improve the aim there is also the possibility of activating the gyroscope. On a graphic level there are always various compromises, but if you play it in tablet mode you will notice them much less.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a great Musou, as well as a major spin-off of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild.
Once again, Tecmo Koei and Omega Force prove capable of managing the intellectual properties of others with great skill, refining the technique and the study of the original material.
Pay attention only to the repetitiveness and performance of the dock version.
Immortals Fenyx Rising
It was called Gods & Monsters, then it became Immortals Fenyx Rising. It looked a lot like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and in fact still remembers it a lot.
The truth is that if you have a Nintendo Switch you must necessarily buy Breath of the Wild, but if you are orphans of the famous Action RPG (because maybe you have finished it several times).
You could fall back on one of the latest Ubisoft games, sufficiently appreciated by those who got to play it.
Inspired by Doom, Quake and other FPS classics, Dusk lets you experience a shooter like in the 90s, under the notes of metallic music.
It includes a very varied paraphernalia, with swords, crossbows, shotguns, rocket launchers and grenades: you will have to deal with cultists and evil figures of all kinds. The Switch port is great: if you love the genre, it’s an unmissable title.
- PURCHASE : Nintendo eShop
Hey, wait, but that looks like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild graphics! Yes, well … the source of inspiration is pretty obvious, but the game still differs in story, objectives and, of course, in its characters.
We will have to survive on an unknown island. A sort of mix between an adventure, an RPG, and survival.

Paper Mario: The Origami King
It is really difficult to insert it in a specific genre, we categorize it as an action game only because it is usually the one that includes the most variations.
We could also define it as a puzzle game, partly role-playing and partly adventure. At the center is Mario, or rather, the paper version of Mario!
