PSVG’s Top 25 Nintendo Switch Games

PSVGs Top 25 Nintendo Switch Games Here are the top 25 games available on the Nintendo Switch from Team PSVG. We argued, we debated, and in the end we hope this list provides a diverse look at the options available to you.   At the time of writing this, It’s been 6 months since the Nintendo Switch launched on March 3rd, 2017. Come back on March 3rd 2018 as we update the list again for Switch’s 1-year anniversary. #25 - Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap Wonderboy is essentially two games in one – the original Sega Master System game and a beautifully remastered piece of art. I use the term art because this is so much more than a video game. Visually, Wonderboy is absolutely stunning to look at on your screen. I found myself constantly switching between the two games on the fly to fully-appreciate just how much work they put into the game based on the original levels. The action-adventure platforming game design is both fun and challenging plus the inclusion of the re-orchestrated soundtrack makes for a incredible package. – Josh #24 - Kamiko Hands down the best value on the switch today, for only 4.99 you get a great top down action game in the spirit of the original legend of Zelda with great replay-ability. You can play through the game with three different characters for...

Podcast Review: Miitopia on 3DS

Miitopia is a great entry into RPG’s for young or new gamers and can offer some laugh out loud moments.

Nintendo eShop Update for Aug 10, 2017

What an amazing week for the Nintendo eShop! Tons of diverse, different, affordable Switch games PLUS two great (and free) demo’s for 3DS (Monster Hunter Stories) & Switch (Rayman). I could even make an argument that his week’s lineup could be considered the best eShop update to hit the Nintendo Switch since launch. Personally, I’m intrigued with Phantom Trigger. The videos and impressions I’ve seen circling the web look great at first glance. Sonic Mania is a good get for anyone looking for platforming and/or nostalgia. Severed I’ve had my fill of, having played it on Wii U &...

Nintendo News – New 3DS and Nintendo World Championship Returns

Nintendo has released a bunch of information this morning. Most importantly, at least to me is another special edition New 3DS console commemorating Metroid: The Return of Samus. The console launches with the game on September 15th, and will cost $200. Unfortunately, the special edition console DOES NOT come with a copy of the game. Personally, I think if you’re a collector of valuable Nintendo items you’ll want to get your paws on this 3DS model. Considering it’s late arrival to the 3DS family & Metroid inspired art design, I can easily see this being a sought after collectible...
