A solid week brings some big games for Nintendo gamers including a little rhythmic boxing, as well as John Wick, Fire Emblem, Immortals, and more.
Swinging for the fences
Nintendo’s odd choices for ‘headline’ games continues this week. It’s a pretty great week for new releases on the Switch, and one that includes Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising and a never before seen (in the US) 8bit Fire Emblem title with Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light.
And yet, even with that and the likes of John Wick Hex, Commandos 2 HD Remaster and more, we get Fitness Boxing 2 as the headliner. I mean… huh?
Confusion and meaningless picks for ‘title games’ aside though, this is a pretty great week. And there’s a little something for almost every gamer included. Scroll on down and take a peek.
