We all had to expect a downtick in the week to follow and that’s what we have here this week in direct comparison. That said, there’s some stuff to enjoy on those Switch’s this week. The highlight in undoubtedly the arrival of Skryim, a first for a Nintendo console. Yes, its a 7 year old game. Yes, its a port from a game that came out last year on PS4 and Xbox One. It also is the first time one of the most praised and influential games of all time can be played on the go and according to Digital Foundry, for the Switch hardware its pretty impressive.

This Week On Nintendo Switch:

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an open-world masterpiece where you can be anyone and do anything. And now, with the power of the Nintendo Switch system, you can play it anywhere – at home or on the go. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim brings to life a complete virtual world for you to explore any way you choose, including features new to this version of the game like using motion controls and outfits and gear from compatible Legend of Zelda series amiibo figures (sold separately).
  • Battle Chef Brigade – In the fantasy realm of Victusia, the members of the elite Battle Chef Brigade are revered for their ability to skillfully take down monsters and transform their kills into delicious cuisine. But being a part of the Brigade isn’t easy: Chefs from across Victusia must vie for their spot in a high-stakes competition. Follow two contestants, Mina and Thrash, as their journeys through the tournament unfold. In order to become a Brigadier you’ll need to hunt monsters with combo-based attacks and prepare your freshly caught ingredients in puzzle-based cooking challenges to serve up winning dishes to the judges – all while the round clock ticks down.
