If there is one thing Nintendo does no longer need to prove, it is that they can take popular sports and turn them into something more colorful and playful, add a few Mario characters and still make it into an enjoyable and solid game. A long line of Mario-themed Sports games are testament to this, starting as far back as the NES if you want to count Golf and Tennis.
But even when you have the concept down, you occasionally lose focus. That’s when you get things like Mario Sports Superstars on 3DS.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most important game in Nintendo’s limited Switch launch-lineup, and absolutely the one that most eyes are directed to. Expectations of a new Zelda game are always high, and people have waited for a long time for the next console release of Nintendo’s most critically acclaimed series. Luckily, Breath of the Wild is without a doubt the best launch-game one could hope for. It is fresh yet familiar, challenging yet accessible but most of all absolutely phenomenal.
