Two of the Newest Port Additions to Nintendo Switch

Posted on December 12, 2020 at 10:27 pm

Lately several games have been released for gameplay on the Nintendo Switch. Two of these exciting new port additions are:

DOOM Eternal

This game, whilst only being relatively new (with a release in March 2020) is completely new to the Nintendo Switch platform and has been released as a port and one of the few good first-person shooters available to Nintendo consoles. The Switch is unique to its predecessors with regards to first person shooters wherein they are practically non-existent for Wii and Wii U.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

The second exciting port game to come to Switch came as a surprise announcement earlier this year and took quite a bit of hard-work and dedication to make possible. Developers wanted to ensure the graphics were not compromised to the point of not being able to give the game the quality of visuals that are expected of this series.

Other note-worthy Mario releases this year, released as of October, are the Super Mario Bros 35, which is designed like a Tetris 99 model and pits other players against each other in a battle royale.

What We Know About Nintendo Switch Games So Far

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 10:14 pm

With the release of Nintendo’s new home console quickly approaching, a lot of questions still remain about the actual games that the switch will play. After all its the games that make a console, so here’s what we know so far.

Nintendo Switch games will retail for $60, this puts a lot of arguments to rest about whether the switch will be actually be considered as a home console. In comparison, Nintendo 3DS games retail for around $30 – $40, a common price point for handheld games.

The cases the games are packaged in are slim and tall, but seem to be considerably smaller than standard DVD cases. This is likely because they’re designed to hold a card that houses the game, as opposed to a larger DVD or Blu ray disk.

As for actual game content, Nintendo stated that there were at least 80 third-party titles in development for the system from over 50 developers/publishers. We’ll only see a fraction of that at release, but those statements hold a lot of hope for the future content of the console.
