The Nintendo Switch is the first console by Nintendo-no, by anyone, in YEARS to use something other than discs as a physical format. This of course could potentially drive up the cost for the game, but only if the devs are being greedy jews.
The famous PC game gets a physical release on the Switch. It features all the content and DLC of the PC release (As of March 2017) and throws it on the Switch, for 40 bucks. While that price may seem steep, it's really worth it to play Isaac on the go, with the dungeon crawling and the shooting and all that.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The long-awaited next 3-D entry in the series since Skyward Sword, and boy does it meet expectations. The game drops it's formulaic mechanics and attempts to go for something new. You wake up in a world not knowing what's going on, and then must save Hyrule from destruction. It features a gigantic open-world (With of course fucking Ubisoft towers), which seems to go on forever, and while it may seem empty at times, there's plenty to find. There's over 120 shrines to enter, tons of items and food to collect, tons of sidequests, and over 900 korok seeds to upgrade your gear. You're going to need those upgrades, because this is one of the hardest Zelda games released since the NES games, with enemies that can one-shot you if you're not careful. There's tons of equipment to find, however, the weapon-breaking mechanic may turn off some. The biggest problem is the performance, with framerates that dip constantly, but it never gets to game breaking levels. Also the English voice acting is pretty mediocre but there was recently an update which allows for mixing audio options and text languages. Overall in one package, this game will probably have you at it for hours if you really get into it, but really IT'S FUCKING ZELDA, did you expect anything less?
Also on Wii U.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
The Switch version of the best selling Wii U game, this one includes every bit of DLC found in the Wii U version, along with some exclusive content of its own, such as characters, cars, etc. The graphics have been updated to run at a full 1080p 60 FPS as well. Also includes a non-shit Battle Mode in this version, with a multitude of options to choose from. This is basically the definitive version of the game, all in one tight package.
Super Bomberman R
After a long hiatus, Bomberman finally gets another game as a Switch launch title! Nothing dark or edgy has been added in, it's just classic Bomberman action. There's a story mode where you go to different planets, defeating bosses and whatnot, it's ok. But everyone knows you play Bomberman for the multiplayer, and it's just the same as its always been, blow them to hell and back. There's of course, online multiplayer and local, so you can have some fun with friends either way. If you miss Bomberman and want a Switch, get this game.
