Louis Hughes’ Top 5 Nintendo Switch Games of 2019
While fans are waiting patiently for Bayonetta 3, Platinum Games released a new game to kill the time. This co-op action adventure game has you playing the police force while dealing with monsters. What makes the game stand out is that you have your “Legion” with you to help solve puzzle and battle, among other features. The combat takes some getting used to, but once you learn it, the game becomes a blast to play.
Daemon X Machina
Here is a game that didn’t get much attention due to Astral Chain, but I would recommend giving the prologue demo a try. Since the fall Nintendo Direct, two demos have been released from feedback on what works and features that needed improvement. The latest build has all the issues fixed, especially with the gameplay to make it more streamlined.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echos of an Elusive Age- Definitive Edition
While it is an enhanced port of the PS4 game, the amount of extra content added to the Switch version is enough to have a second look. This was a surprise hit for me, as I had no intention of playing this, but thanks to a stealth demo drop, I played it and got hooked.
Luigi’s Mansion 3
After Dark Moon, I was wondering where the series would go. The end result brings back elements from the previous two games. This time it’s in a hotel with multiple floors to explore. With the help of Professor E-Gad and your new helper Gooigi, you’ll be sucking up ghosts and money in no time.
Yoshi’s Crafted World
After my love for Yoshi’s Wolly World, I was excited to play Yoshi’s latest adventure. The biggest surprise is Nintendo’s first time using the Unreal Engine 4, but you wouldn’t know from the visuals. While the game does get repetitive in having you replay the same level, it still has that charm only Kirby and Yoshi games can achieve.
