Most Wanted Nintendo Switch Games


 The Nintendo Switch is rapidly approaching, and that means one thing: we're going to get a lot of new games very soon. While we can expect games like the new Mario, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8, and Splatoon near or at launch, this console will hopefully last for a long time. These are just some of the games I'd hope to see on the Switch during its lifetime.


  •  A new Monster Hunter or an HD port of one of the 3DS versions


 Monster Hunter is a huge game worldwide, and it's incredibly popular in Japan. The release of Monster Hunter XX is happening near the launch of the Nintendo Switch, making a Monster Hunter title a potential launch title. Monster Hunter XX isn't the only game coming. Monster Hunter 5 has to happen eventually. Perhaps that will end up being a Nintendo Switch game.


  •  Splatwo Spla2n


 Splatoon is one of the Wii U's biggest games, and it was held back by a dead system to become even bigger. It's also pretty innovative as it's one of the only kid-friendly shooters on the market and it also attracts a competitive adult market as well. While a port of the first one seems likely near launch, a sequel has to be in the works by now. The short clip of Splatoon in the Nintendo Switch reveal trailer had new hairstyles and a new tree model, perhaps that is a sequel to Splatoon. Either way, I hope the sequel is called Splatwo or Spla2n.


  •  Pokemon Stars or any other Alola Region sequel


 Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are easily the best Pokemon games in a long time. They removed HMs, introduced a beautiful new art style, came up with a wonderful story, and did so much more. I'm easily more attached to the characters and Pokemon of the Alola region than those of any other. Sun and Moon very obviously set up for a sequel with the mystery Legendary Pokemon, Necrozma and Marshadow, and the abundance of references to a Kanto postgame. While I'd love a full HD revamp of the region, a simple port with the necessary things to make it a sequel would still please me.



  • A new 2D Zelda game


 Don't get me wrong, I'm incredibly excited for Breath of the Wild. That said, I've always preferred the 2D Zelda games like Link to the Past and Link Between Worlds over the 3D games. I'd love another game set in a similar setting to those games. I would like it to be a new map this time, though. Playing through the same world for a third time might be a little repetitive. I'd expect a new interesting gimmick introduced to the gameplay again as well.


  • A new 2D Metroid

 Noticing a trend? Metroid is another series that became pretty different after making the jump to 3D. The 3D games are fine, and I'd be perfectly happy with a new Prime, but there's something about Super Metroid that just draws me in more. While I'd love a pixelated art style, that doesn't honestly seem like something Nintendo would do. I wouldn't want a realistic art style, even though Metroid is one of the only Nintendo properties that I think would work well with it. Nintendo has utilized many different art styles, and I'm sure they could come up with something fitting for Metroid.


 These are just five of the games I've thought of for the Nintendo Switch. What games do you want to end up on this interesting new console? Please let me know in the comments of this article or on any outlet I've shared this article on. If I get enough, I'll make a follow-up article about the most wanted games in the community.

Fast RMX Review

Fast RMX is a remaster (or a remix) of Fast Racing Neo, a Wii U eShop title. Developed by Shin'en Multimedia, it is the third game in the Nintendo exclusive Fast series that started all the way on WiiWare. The Fast series is somewhat of a spiritual successor to F-Zero, a Nintendo franchise that has been long forgotten by Nintendo itself. If Nintendo won't develop any more games in the series, at least Shin'en is trying...but have their efforts ended up being worth it? Let's dig in.


Graphics

Fast RMX looks phenomenal, especially considering the hardware it's on. Breath of the Wild is a beautiful game, but it doesn't look real. Fast RMX does. It's crazy to me that we live in a world where $20 games on portable Nintendo hardware look this good. This game is truly breathtaking.

 In some of the levels, there are weather effects. As water, snow, or sand bombard your screen, it's easy to become incredibly immersed in the game's world. One of the key mechanics…

How I Changed My Mind On The Launch Lineup and 1-2 Switch

If we're being honest, the original Nintendo Switch launch lineup was pretty weak. It featured a measly five games, two of which were third party ports that will likely not sell at all. However, in the five weeks since the Nintendo Switch was fully revealed, this lineup has grown. It's grown a lot.


 A lot of games have been added since the initial lineup. The launch that originally consisted of five games is now at least twelve games. I am Setsuna, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, World of Goo, Little Inferno, Human Resource Machine, Snipperclips, and Fast RMX have all been added to the March 3rd release day.

 The lineup in general has grown exponentially. Reddit user /u/AbsoluteMagnitude has been consistently updating the original lineup picture with every game announcement. The image above is their most recent version of the wallpaper. There are an incredibly large amount of games here, and the numbers just keep climbing.

 Due to the growing launch, I'm a lot more excite…

Why Every Nintendo Fan NEEDS To Buy 1-2 Switch

 1-2 Switch is the only Switch exclusive launch title developed by Nintendo. If that and the fact that it actually looks like a pretty fun time don't sell you, I know what might. When presented with this information, your perception on the necessity of 1-2 Switch very well may change. The reason you should buy this game is because of the Switch itself.

 I'll get to that in a second. First, let's look at the launch of the Nintendo Switch. The games confirmed to be releasing are Breath of the Wild, 1-2 Switch, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginators, World of Goo, Binding of Isaac, Little Inferno, Super Bomberman R, I Am Setsuna, and Human Resource Machine. While many of these may end up being really good games, they've almost all already been released on other consoles, or will do so simultaneously with the Switch release. The only "made for Switch" games here are Super Bomberman R...and 1-2 Switch.

Super Bomberman R looks okay, but with Konami's track rec…
