Nintendo Download: A Spoonful of Playful Pokémon Puzzles

The Pokemon go to the cafe this week, as Nintendo Switch gamers get the latest pocket monsters title, plus retro-N64 Star Wars goodness and more.

Cup of joe with your Pikachu?

Pokemon Cafe Mix might not be the first thing you think of when you think ‘Pokemon’. Nevertheless, the game arrives this week on the Switch, and brings puzzle solving action along with it.

It kind of sounds interesting too. Not only does the game have you puzzling, but it also tasks players with completing tasks before they can move on. Pretty cool and definitely different for this kind of title.

Past that though, the long awaited port of Star Wars Episode 1: Racer is finally here. Nightdive’s remaster of the N64 classic changes up the game slightly with motion controls, but looks more or less like a re-presentation of the original game.

Of course, there’s a lot more this week too, including Blair Witch, Vs. Baseball, and more.
