Issue 243 — August Sunday, 2021

Great Ace Attorney

Hello, hope you're well. Chris here with issue #243 of Switch Weekly.

I'm about 6 or 7 hours into Skyward Sword and I'm really enjoying it. I think the linear nature of it is actually quite nice for shorter play sessions. I can open it up, get a little bit farther along, and call it a day. I could never do that with BotW — I'd get lost for hours exploring. I love both, I just think the linear nature of Skyward Sword is probably better suited to life with a toddler. 😅

There's just over 20 games coming to Switch next week, including that Sega-themed Picross which we've been waiting on.

Thanks for reading,
Chris ✌️

🎮 Currently Playing — The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Wild Guns

REVIEW The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is the perfect vacation game — "might just be the best that Ace Attorney has to offer. It has shocking twists, lovable characters, and the unmatched joy that comes from solving a complex crime". Here are some other reviews:

Andrew Webster // The Verge

REVIEW Neo: The World Ends With You is a competent RPG haunted by its predecessor — "When this game shines, it really shines" but Kaile adds that it "desperately wants to get out of its own way and be its own game, but it simply can’t pull it off [...] If you’re a fan of the franchise, there’s a lot here for you specifically. If you’re coming in fresh, the game is going to throw a lot of jargon at you in a very short amount of time". Jade King at The Gamer calls it "the sequel we've been waiting for".

Kaile Hultner // Polygon

New Pokémon Snap gets free update with more Pokémon and three new areas next week — Twenty new creatures to photograph too.

Daniel Vuckovic // Vooks

Nintendo promises more Animal Crossing content is coming — With over 30 million copies of this game sold to date Nintendo's post-launch support here has been a bit...limp. Undoubtedly the pandemic has hurt things here — but it will be interesting to see just how substantial these future updates are. 

Richard Breslin // GameByte

Everything that has happened since the Activision Blizzard lawsuit was filed — This post does a good job of highlighting all the key moments in this fast moving dreadful shitstorm of a story. For what it's worth, I won't be sharing coverage of Activision/Blizzard titles here in Switch Weekly for the foreseeable future.

Zack Zwiezen // Kotaku

REVIEW Samurai Warriors 5 — "takes the long-running franchise, gives it a wonderfully vibrant lick of paint, throws in some excellent new combat mechanics and fills its story mode with well-directed cutscenes, resulting in a slick and stylish addition to the series that's sure to please fans and newcomers alike".

PJ O'Reilly // Nintendo Life

REVIEW B.ARK — "Those who are generally looking for a more laidback, multiplayer focused title won’t be barking up the wrong tree if they give this one a spin".

Jordan Rudek // Nintendo World Report
