Of course, if you’re looking for what’s new and worth checking out this month, then you’ve come to the right place. With that, we’ve rounded up the best Nintendo Switch games worth checking out throughout February to keep you entertained for days. Alright, let’s do this.
Life is Strange Remastered Collection
Kicking off the right month, we have the highly anticipated remasters of the beloved Life is Strange. This pack includes the original episodic graphical adventure released in 2015 as well as the 2017 prequel, Life is Strange: Before the Storm. Two fantastic titles perfect for playing in several sessions or simply embarking on a mega-marathon.
The plot surrounds Max Caufield, an 18-year-old photography student who discovers she can rewind time at any time, setting up butterfly effect scenarios with each choice made. It’s a dramatic coming-of-age story that will have you grinning from ear to ear as much as it will have you questioning every decision you make. childhood Chloe and I’ll show you a liar.
OlliOlli World is Jet Set Radio combined with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater in the best possible way. This 2D indie skateboard seeks to deliver platforming perfection and oozes style with its hand-drawn art style
fans of the playstation vita will be fondly remembered from the first two iterations, though OlliOlli World will expand on both with new branching paths, dynamic locations, and the same quirky characters the series is known for. After appearing in several independent Nintendo showcases over the years, OlliOlli World will finally launch on Switch on February 8th.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus
Arguably the most talked about game on the planet right now, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the first time the Japanese series catch ’em all has attempted an open world environment in over 25 years of history – and it works. ! Once you get past the opening tutorial, the country in the Hisui region opens up to you.
It’s not on the same level as breath of the wild but it’s still incredibly fun. It’s also just fantastic to see The Pokémon Company stepping out of their comfort zone and experimenting with the same turn-based top-down formula. Already, sales are incredibly high and I wouldn’t be surprised if it topped the list for 2022. My favorite thing about Pokémon Legends: Arceus is that it makes Pokémon scary again. One second you can be minding your own business, maybe foraging for berries, and the next you’re on the hunt for a demon-eyed Snorlax. Brilliant!
