Nintendo Switch Launch: 3 Games Worth Checking Out Besides 'Zelda' During The Console Launch On March 3
After months of constant teasing and a ton of gameplay footage, Nintendo Switch will finally be out on March 3. Together with its release, nine game titles will also come with the console.
Aside from "Zelda: Breath of the Wild," there are eight games scheduled to be released on the same date. These include revamped old time classics and some new entries.
Starting the eight-game countdown is Nintendo's own party game titled "1-2 Switch." It is not exactly one of the console's biggest games, but it is a sure fire way to set the mood with other players. Similar to "Human Resource Machine" and "Just Dance 2017," it can add extra game hours and entertainment.
"Little Inferno" and "World of Goo" are also included in the launch. Both are impressive puzzle games that are worth checking out.
At par with "Zelda" are three new games. These are "Skylanders: Imaginators," the sad tale of "I am Setsuna" and the classic remake of "Super Bomberman R."
Dubbed "Diablo" for kids is "Skylander: Imaginators." The game has been receiving positive reviews since its first release on Oct 16, 2016. It is also considered the most mature "Skylander" game to date. The game offers intricate character creation bundled with a commendable loot system. The game designed for kids and teens might just make its way to the top of the Switch's preferred game titles.
"I am Setsuna" is a take on classic RPGs with its old school Active Time Battle System (ATBS). Fans of "Chrono Trigger" and "Final Fantasy" games will experience a 90's RPG revival with this game.
Set in a land gripped by eternal winter, players follow the quest of a mercenary and a maiden named Setsuna. The maiden must offer herself as a sacrifice to appease hostile demons. "I am Setsuna" offers hours of gameplay in an intriguing world centered on sadness.
The third is a revival of a classic hit game, now titled "Super Bomberman R." Decades since its release in 1985, the title is now considered "old school royalty." The party-based battle game aims to replicate its success on the upcoming Switch console. The action maze experience will feature new 3D maps and a new set of skills to drop bombs against opponents. It will also feature a single-player story mode spanning 50 stages.
It's the first major "Bomberman" game introduced under Konami Digital Entertainment. Hudson Soft originally held the Intelectual Property rights for the "Bomberman" franchise. The company merged with Konami in 2012.
The Nintendo Switch console is expecting 65 games to be released at the end of 2017. There will be a ton of games to choose from after that. You can check out the video below to know more.
