What games are you looking forward to playing on the OLED Switch? – Talking point

It’s a weird phenomenon when new hardware comes out that makes you dig into your old catalog for gems you might have missed, or maybe just revisit classic titles to see how they look and perform on your shiny new system. It’s something PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers have come across over the last year, with a small selection of new and custom titles prompting players to revisit their existing library on new consoles and see what the classics look like. on the new machine.

While the OLED Switch may not have any performance benefit over its regular LCD-screen siblings, we’re still eager to play our favorite games on the new console and see what they look like on that gorgeous new screen, to enjoy the richest, blackest blacks. depths and pop-up colors that the new display will offer. Some of us are, in fact, putting off Korok seed collecting or starting something new from our old catalog just so we can play on the new Switch when it finally arrives.

Therefore, below you will find a non-exhaustive list of just a few of the games we are looking forward to diving back into on the OLED Switch. No everybody video games, mainly because there is no space, but some main examples that we think to sing on the OLED switch …

Okami HD (Switch eShop)Okami HD (Switch eShop)

Editor: Capcom / Developer: Capcom

Release date: August 9, 2018 (USA) / August 9, 2018 (UK / EU)

Okami is a beautiful game, in almost every way. Its watercolor-inspired art style looked great in its HD version, which fortunately has a very nice Switch port. One of my favorites, I can’t wait to see how it appears on a new screen. TW

Astral Chain (Switch)Astral Chain (Switch)

Editor: Nintendo / Developer: PlatinumGames

Release date: August 30, 2019 (USA) / August 30, 2019 (UK / EU)

Astral Chain, or ASTRAL CHAIN ​​as PlatinumGames prefers, is fantastic and is also a very accomplished technical endeavor. It’s quite visually challenging and does a great job of bringing its sci-fi world to life – I loved my first game. It’s definitely time to revisit and take on the absurdly difficult final boss again. TW

Well then … I don’t Really know how different the OLED will look, since the reasons for the pandemic mean that I have never viewed the thing, but if there is a game that will look good no matter what happens, it is Super Mario Odyssey. Also, it would be nice to replay it for good reason.

And, since we’re talking about the new features of the OLED Switch, that kickstand will make it really easy to play games on my desktop. For, erm, job research, of course. KG

Resident Evil 4 (Switch eShop)Resident Evil 4 (Switch eShop)

Editor: Capcom / Developer: Capcom

Release date: May 21, 2019 (USA) / May 21, 2019 (UK / EU)

Well, I play Resident Evil 4 every Halloween. I’m not kidding, every October I complete a game, and since the Switch port has no gyro controls (come on Capcom, that’s is not sufficient) I will probably enjoy it in portable mode on the new system. Games with older images often look better on the smaller screen, looking deceptively sharp, and this one is no different. TW

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch)Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch)

Editor: Ubisoft / Developer: Ubisoft

Release date: August 29, 2017 (USA) / August 29, 2017 (UK / EU)

One of the backlog I spent just an hour or two on before getting distracted by all the other video games. I remember this is incredibly colorful and as Tom mentioned above about Mario Kart 8, I imagine it will actually appear on the new screen. The perfect excuse to dive again. GL

Luigi's Mansion 3 (Switch)Luigi's Mansion 3 (Switch)

Editor: Nintendo / Developer: Next level games

Release date: October 31, 2019 (USA) / October 31, 2019 (UK / EU)

Another Game Voucher purchase that seemed vital at the time, but quickly got buried in the build-up, Luigi’s Mansion 3 is one of the prettiest games on the Switch, and with Halloween closing in again (it seems like it does so annually, it’s strange, that ), you will probably see particularly lovely in the new system. GL

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch)Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch)

Editor: Nintendo / Developer: Nintendo

Release date: April 28, 2017 (USA) / April 28, 2017 (UK / EU)

This racer, which continues to sell in such numbers that Nintendo is apparently in no rush to make a sequel, was a spectator on Wii U. It’s always been great to the eyes on Switch, too, and is a good example of a game that seems unintelligible. make no sacrifice at all (after dropping to 720p) on the images. It also happens to be one of Nintendo’s most colorful games, making it perfect for testing the new model’s screen. TW

Another choice from Gav, and other game you bought redeemed a game voucher before you barely touched it. The small text on this one will benefit from the larger screen on the OLED model, for sure.

However, I’m not sure how the OLED model will magically create overtime in the day to allow me to go back to all these gems. Maybe that’s a hidden feature of the new model, like the mysterious ‘enhanced audio’ (which I’m not convinced isn’t just ‘bigger speaker holes at the bottom’). GL

Minecraft (switch)Minecraft (switch)

Editor: Mojang / Developer: Mojang

Release date: June 21, 2018 (USA) / June 21, 2018 (UK / EU)

I’ll never have the hardware (or the money) to be able to witness ray-traced Minecraft, but I bet it looks pretty cool on an OLED. Although, it is not one of the things with an OLED that makes the bits dark Really Dark? Minecraft’s Creeper infested nights are terrifying enough already. KG

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

Editor: Nintendo / Developer: Nintendo SPD

Release date: March 3, 2017 (USA) / March 3, 2017 (UK / EU)

I have played this game to the end three times, which is a lot for a game of this size. However, I have to see how it looks on the enhanced screen; After all, it is the most impressive “world” Nintendo has ever created. TW

I still have about 60 Korok seeds to find, and I’m using a Breath of the Wild app to flag them one by one. However, the other night I found myself stopping, only to have a few left to find in a month. You really should pre-order, right? I walked into a department store and got a Switch on launch day, and now I’m sure I can accomplish the same feat again. GL

Metroid Dread (switch)Metroid Dread (switch)

Editor: Nintendo / Developer: Nintendo

Release date: 8th Oct 2021 (USA) / 8th Oct 2021 (UK / EU)

When the OLED was revealed, there was a suspicion that it had been held back at E3 after all the tedious and inaccurate ‘Pro’ rumors. The white Joy-Con and EMMI color scheme made us wonder if it was supposed to be announced alongside the Metroid Dread. That theory aside, I can’t wait for this game, so the fact that it lands alongside the new hardware is perfect. TW

Tetris Effect: Connected (Switch eShop)Tetris Effect: Connected (Switch eShop)

Editor: Improve games / Developer: Resonance

Release date: 8th Oct 2021 (USA) / 8th Oct 2021 (UK / EU)

Of course, Metroid Dread is the great link, but Tetris Effect: Connected seems to be the ticket for when walking away from the EMMI stalkers becomes too difficult to bear. This will also be the perfect game to test how ‘improved’ the new speakers are (if that’s exactly what they are). GL

OXENFREE II: Lost Signals (Switch eShop)OXENFREE II: Lost Signals (Switch eShop)

Editor: Interactive MWM / Developer: Night school study

Oxenfree was such a beautiful game, with a red-green color palette that managed to be creepy and haunting, but not at all Christmassy. That is difficult to do well! I guess Oxenfree II, with more experience and Oxenfree funds, will be even better, and I can’t wait to find out how. KG
