Nintendo eShop Super Sale: Over 1,500 Nintendo Switch games on sale
Paper Mario: The Origami King – New gameplay video introduces combat system in more detail
Paper Mario: The Origami King stands out simply because of its pretty and cute art design in the style of paper figurines. But the role-playing game has a lot more to offer, for example a charming game world full of funny allusions and humorous dialogues, in which there is something to discover at every nook and corner, be it an interesting detail or a real treasure. The creative combat system combines turn-based tactics with puzzle gameplay. In addition, there are always action interludes and dungeons with tricky puzzles in Zelda style. By the way, our main task is to save the mushroom kingdom from the evil origami king, who turns the paper figurines into monsters by folding them.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – New trailer shows action-packed gameplay
Like its predecessor, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity combines the world of The Legend of Zelda with the action-packed hack and slash gameplay of the Dynasty Warriors series. With the help of spectacular special abilities, we mow down tons of opponents. We have a total of 20 characters from the Zelda universe at our disposal, which we will gradually unlock. Each of them has its own weapons and skills: While Link uses sword and bow as usual, Queen Urbosa, for example, uses electric attacks. Although the gameplay is in the foreground, the story is also interesting, especially for Zelda fans, because it tells the history of Breath of the Wild.

Hades – Gods roguelike from the Bastion creators in the trailer
Hades is one of the best and most popular representatives of the roguelike genre. This is not least due to the motivating game progress: Although we have to start over after each death, we not only unlock new weapons and skills, but also learn more about the amazingly complex background story and the many characters. We play Zagreus, son of the god Hades, who wants to escape from the underworld ruled by his father. We fight our way from the top-down perspective through varied levels full of monsters loosely based on Greek mythology. Along the way we will meet other gods who will support us by giving us new abilities.

Miitopia – The quirky Nintendo 3DS RPG returns to the Switch
In the role-playing game Miitopia, you take on the fight against the dark lord with a group of your own Mii heroes, which you create in the complex character editor with almost endless possibilities. It’s not just about looks, the social component is also and above all exciting: the heroes all have their own personality and react accordingly to each other. The fights are turn-based like in a classic JRPG, but seem fresh because familiar enemies like goblins are mixed with quirky enemies like runny noses. If this all sounds pretty crazy to you and you’d rather try Miitopia before you buy it, you can do so with the free demo on Nintendo eShop.

Dark Souls: Remastered – Official video for the new sound & picture quality
The action role-playing game Dark Souls now enjoys cult status. This is partly due to the eerily dark art design and the mysterious, cursed game world called Lordran, in which demons and all sorts of monsters are up to mischief. Above all, however, it is due to the exciting, melee combat, the high degree of difficulty and the motivating progression mechanics: By collecting souls we can level up our character. However, if we risk too much before we bring these souls to safety, we may lose them all. In addition to technical improvements, the remastered version for Nintendo Switch also includes the DLC “Artorias of the Abyss”.

Dragon Ball Z Kakarot – In summary: That’s what the action RPG is about
The action role-playing game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot lets you re-enact the entire story of the series, from the arrival of Raditz to the final battle, visiting almost all of the well-known locations. You usually play other characters than Son Goku and gain new perspectives on the story. The combat system is quite complex and takes some getting used to at first, but it’s all the more fun once you’ve mastered it. The fights make up the majority of the approximately 40 hours of gameplay, but there are a few mini-games to loosen things up. In addition to the main game, you also get the expansion A New Power Awakens, which lets you play two new boss fights.

You can now get the Anniversary Edition of the adventure classic Danganronpa, which was only released last December, at half price. In the macabre game, which has since been adapted into an anime series, the students of an elite high school are locked inside the school by a malicious teddy bear. He only wants to release those who commit murder and get away with it. If the other students find out who the killer is, he will be executed. On the other hand, if they accuse the wrong person, everyone but him must die. It doesn’t take long for the first fatalities to appear, and in order to save our own lives, at least temporarily, we need to solve them flawlessly.

Tetris Effect – PS4 skill game announcement trailer with PS VR support
Tetris Effect is more than just a remake of the classic. The well-known puzzle gameplay is combined with elements of a music game. But not only the music and the sound effects, but also the complex graphic effects adapt to our game rhythm. There are 30 levels with individual music, and the ten different modes ensure playful variety. There is also a new mechanic that lets us stop time to master particularly tricky situations. In the connected version for Nintendo Switch, you can engage in exciting duels in cross-platform multiplayer as well as compete together in co-op.

What the Golf? Describing itself as “a game of golf for people who don’t know golf” is pretty close to the truth. In any case, it is not a realistic golf simulation, but rather a physics-based puzzle game full of wacky levels. In these, golf is combined with a wide variety of other sports and game mechanics, from soccer to shelling. Cars, horses, turtles and centipedes are also used. The curiosity alone about what silliness awaits us at the next hole motivates us. By the way, you can not only play alone, but also compete against each other in local multiplayer.

In Garden Story we are the protector of a colorful village inhabited by anthropomorphic fruits. To do this, we don’t just have to go out and defeat numerous monsters and fight boss fights in the four different regions of the game. We also have to help in the expansion and beautification of the village by collecting resources, making repairs and completing tasks for the residents. In addition, there are also some secrets to be explored and puzzles to be solved in our new home. Garden Story thus offers a mixture of a life simulation in the style of a Stardew Valley or Harvest Moon and an action adventure like The Legend of Zelda.
