2017 was a fantastic debut year for Switch. It seemed like month after month, Nintendo was putting out a big game. Zelda: Breath of the Wild kicked off the system’s launch, with Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and others to follow. You could make a case that 2018 didn’t reach those same heights, but this year had plenty of great games. We saw the likes of Kirby Star Allies, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu / Eevee, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – and that’s just on the first-party side of things. Third-parties contributed with hits like Octopath Traveler, and many top indies found a home on Switch including Celeste, Hollow Knight, Dead Cells, The Messenger, and many more.

Since 2018 is just about over, it’s time to take a minute to reflect on things. What were your favorite games of 2017? Even if they weren’t on Switch (we can’t forget about the 3DS!), be sure to let us know in the comments below.

Way back in March, Nintendo unveiled Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Several months later, the game is finally available.

Now that a week or so has gone by, we want to know what you think of Ultimate so far. Which character did you unlock first? Which mode have you been sinking the most time into? What was your first Spirit? If you have any thoughts about the game at all, be sure to let us know in the comments.

The Game Awards 2018 have come and gone, but not without some big announcements. Nintendo itself had new things to show, as did third-parties.

The biggest announcement of the night may have been the last one. Joker from Persona 5 is Smash Bros. Ultimate’s first true DLC character, which no one really predicted. Nintendo also unveiled the Team Ninja-developed Switch exclusive Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Other third-party highlights include Mortal Kombat 11, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and Sayonara Wild Hearts.

How do you feel about everything that was shown? What do you think of Joker as Smash Bros. Ultimate’s first DLC character? Were you disappointed by something you thought could be at the show but wasn’t? Let us know in the comments below.

Nintendo has been present at The Game Awards almost every year. In most cases, the company comes along with multiple announcements. Last year was arguably the biggest with the reveal of Bayonetta 3, the news that Bayonetta 1 + 2 were coming to Switch, and the proper unveiling (and subsequent release) of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s story DLC.

The Game Awards 2018 are less than two weeks away. It’d be very surprising if Nintendo didn’t have at least one announcement for the show, or at least a look at something new. Could we get a better look at Bayonetta 3? A first look at Metroid Prime 4? Share your predictions with us in the comments below.

It was over two years ago that the Pokemon: Detective Pikachu movie was first announced. Yet it wasn’t until this week that we finally got a look at how the movie is turning out. We finally know how the Pokemon are being depicted, what Ryan Reynolds sounds like as Detective Pikachu, the film’s overall tone, and more.

Since the trailer was a hot topic this week, we want to see how everyone is feeling about Pokemon: Detective Pikachu so far. Are you in or out? Are you planning on seeing the film? What do you think about what’s been shown so far? Let us know in the comments below.

Last week, a new month rolled right on in. Now that we’re in November, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you started up something entirely new for the month? Trying out some of the recent third-party Switch games like Diablo III? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

A Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate rolled right in and aired earlier this week. Nintendo pretty much filled in the blanks on some of the uncertainties surrounding the game. The last initial characters were revealed, DLC was confirmed, the Spirits mode was detailed, we got a first look at the new Adventure Mode: World of Light, and more. There was a lot that was discussed in the end, so this recap should come in handy if you want to get a quick reminder on everything shown.

Now that we mostly know about everything surrounding Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, how is everyone feeling about the game? Did this week’s Nintendo Direct get you more hyped or were you disappointed? What do you think about the final characters that were announced? If you have any thoughts about the new Smash Bros., be sure to share them with us in the comments below.

If you thought 2018 was a bit slow in terms of big new Switch games published by Nintendo, there’s a good chance that 2019 will raise your spirits. We actually know about quite a few games that due out next year. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe kicks things off on January 11. Other confirmed titles include Yoshi’s Crafted World, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Daemon X Machina, Animal Crossing, and a new core Pokemon entry. Other possibilities include Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4. There have also been rumors about a Star Fox racing game from Retro Studios.

Nintendo should clarify its plans further in the months ahead – at least for the first half of 2019. No one knows if we’ll get another general Nintendo Direct before the year is over, but we could see a thing or two at The Game Awards, and January presentations have been a thing for the past few years.

While we wait, let’s play a little game. Try to predict the release windows of the games mentioned above. The likes of Yoshi’s Crafted World and Fire Emblem: Three Houses seem like games that could drop during the first half based on what Nintendo has said previously, but what about launch months? If you want to go further than that and take a random guess, you could even name a specific release date you believe would make sense. It might also be worth discussing if you believe Metroid Prime 4 and / or Bayonetta 3 will be 2019 titles. The goal here is to try and predict how Nintendo will structure its lineup for 2019.
