November was a huge month for the Nintendo Switch, getting high-profile games like DOOM and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. A bunch of wonderful releases went overlooked, and the Switch Era team is here to highlight each of the Nintendo Switch titles that you may have missed.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 and Snipperclips Plus
From Pedro’s review of Resident Evil Revelations 2: “Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a must buy for fans of classic Resident Evil games. With its focus on bringing the series back to its survival roots and a story that is both interesting and emotional, this game needs to be on your Nintendo Switch right now. For first time Resident Evil players, the Nintendo Switch version is polished enough to be an optimal way to start with the series, but steer clear of the motion controls.”
L.A. Noire and Xenoraid
L.A. Noire isn’t a conventional “hidden gem.” It’s an enhanced port of a PlayStation 3 game that would normally have been the #1 game on the Nintendo Switch. It came out between DOOM and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim so it been a little overlooked. Xenoraid, on the other hand, is one of 10tons’s best Nintendo Switch releases.
Tallowmere and Superbeat Xonic
Tallowmere is a real old school challenge. It might be simple, but that doesn’t make it easy and thanks to its leaderboards I keep going back to it to try and beat my best times and stats. Superbeat Xonic is one of the best rhythm games to release since Guitar Hero.
Cat Quest and VVVVVV
From Joshua’s Cat Quest review: “The Gentlebros should pat themselves on a back for a job well done because Cat Quest is a well-realized and well-executed RPG game that deserves every bit of praise it receives. I encourage you to buy this game so they can continue the series.” VVVVVV has “great level design, several maps to test your skills, a stellar soundtrack, and a central mechanic that feels fully fleshed out.”
Ittle Dew 2+ and RiME
From Carl’s Ittle Dew 2+ review: “Ittle Dew 2+ is a beautiful fusion of the original The Legend of Zelda and Adventure Time, taking the non-linear dungeon concept from the former and applying its own charming twists to it. Warning: these puzzles aren’t for the faint of heart.”
