Play news 6 best Nintendo Switch games this summer

Yes, summer is here! If the period is of course conducive to going on vacation, it is now or never to play video games. Today we are going to look at the best titles to make on Nintendo Switch. And between exploration, platform, sports, there is always something to do on the Japanese manufacturer’s console. Need inspiration? Follow the leader!

Pokemon Legends Arceus

If you missed an episode, you should know that Pokémon took a serious leap forward at the beginning of the year with Legends Arceus. This is the first time the series offers a real open world, where famous pickpockets roam free. The system to capture them has also been completely modified with the ability to launch a PokéBall in real time without going through a match. All in all, a little license revolution, which will be heavily inspired by the next Pokémon Scarlet / Purple. Legends Arceus is therefore an episode that every good fan should do, especially since it has some qualities. It’s exciting to capture pocket monsters in this way, especially in a story that evokes the beginning of their relationship with humans. There are even great action scenes against bosses. To do.

Kirby and the forgotten world

We continue in an equally colorful world with Kirby, the famous little pink ball. The forgotten world marks the first the character’s entry into the 3D era with open levels on the Switch. A change that does not happen alone. While Kirby spends peaceful days on Planet Pop, a strange black hole sucks him into the forgotten world. Of course, a villain arrives and catches the whole cute Waddle-Dee. The chubby hero will then have only one goal, namely to find them all. To do this, he can count on the help of his friend Elfilin as well as on a new force: “Transmorphism”. Basically, Kirby can now change into everyday objects (car, stairs, traffic cone) to trigger new movements and search levels. Not to mention his precious abilities: sucking in enemies and throwing fire / ice.

We now open a sports page to talk about Mario Striker’s Battle League Football, the Nintendo-style football game that has just arrived on Switch. If you do not know the formula, you take everything you know about the original discipline, keep the goals and both teams and throw the rest away! The rule is that there is just no rule. It is possible to send the enemy in the background, to tackle it from behind, to send the legendary Nintendo objects to clear a path. The goal: to score more points than the opponent, no matter how. There are, of course, special strikes on the program for more spectacle. But the Battle League also sets in surprising depth of gameplay and very engaging. “Easy to learn, but hard to master, as they say”. A very good surprise!

Nintendo Switch Sports

We continue in sweat with the Nintendo Switch Sports, the successor to the famous Wii Sports, which was then offered with the Japanese company’s home machine. On the program for this season, disciplines already seen before: chambara (wooden sword fight), bowling, tennis. But also some new ones: football, badminton, volleyball. From the fall, there is also golf that will be a part of it. In general, motion gaming is really successful despite some flaws on the football side (too much unnecessary running after the ball). The readability of the action also becomes – and logically enough – too complicated by three players, a number that can go up to four. Other than that, it’s guaranteed to be fun, especially with the family. Like Wii Sports, this Nintendo Switch episode manages to easily bring everyone together and agree. In sports!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredder’s Revenge

We continue with a discipline that could well be a sport: cracking villains in turtle costumes! Yes, we are referring to Ninja Turtles Shredder Revenge, a new game from the French Dotemu (Streets of Rage 4). A new time, the studio hits hard with a great beat’em up. On the sidelines of an impeccable artistic direction, it is the gameplay that takes precedence. Of course we find our four favorite turtles here – Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael. But it is also possible to embody Splinter, April and Casey Jones. The happy guys are also divided into three categories: Range, Speed ​​and Power, which are chosen according to the situation. But aside from these different “classes”, the shots generally do wonders, with “incredible punch”. There is enough to make combinations, but also air sequences. But much more!

We end with one last game that smells of colors and holidays, OlliOlli World. If you do not know the license, it is a very fast skate game in horizontal scrolling. The goal: to chain short levels, succeed with challenges and of course make completely wild characters. At this point, it’s pretty much a platform game on a skateboard. World also brings a lot of new features compared to the other OlliOlli. In addition to a colorful world that is truly more engaging than before, you can now choose back roads and fly from jumps to roll the other way. In addition, a new DLC “Void Riders” has just arrived and brings even more delicious little details. The icing on the cake: hundreds of items to customize your character. In short, it is very complete and we loved it!
