Fans of Sega’s blue speed demon should be happy this week, with the launch of Sonic Colors Ultimate. It’s just about the only standout however.
Yes it’s a Sonic kinda week for the Nintendo Switch, as the Sonic Colors remaster lands on the console. For it’s part, Sonic Colors Ultimate is looking great, and finally brings the formerly-Wii exclusive title to a new generation. That, however, is kind of it this week.
While there are a bunch of other games landing on the console, nothing is really all that impressive. And as you look over the list below, you might be hard-pressed to find anything that’s even remotely interesting.
There’s a possible exception for those looking for a little arcade boxing action, with Creed Champions, but really… there ain’t much else.
