5 Best Games for the Nintendo Switch in 2017
The Nintendo Switch is amazing, and we put together a list of some of the coolest games that are available in 2017.
If you don’t know, the Nintendo Switch is a Nintendo next gen console that combines portable gaming and also gaming on your T.V. The Nintendo Switch console takes everything that Nintendo has brought to the world of video games, and combines it all into one awesome gaming system. This is a brand new gaming system that came out in March of 2017, and these 5 games are the best the console has to offer so far.
#5 | The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
In classic Zelda style, the game is again set to be an open map/hack slash/item finding/dungeon clearing/ ball of fun. This is one of the main titles that Nintendo is seriously hyping, and definitely for good reason.
The controls look very similar to Zelda: Windwaker. They do have some extra controls that utilize the motion sensor in the Joy-Con as well. (You can move around your controller to look around in your Scope to survey things) One of the coolest new controls we have seen- You can snowboard on your shield in snowy areas.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Maps are gigantic. You will get a horse that helps you traverse this huge and beautiful map. (Keep reading to see a secret character)
There are different climates in each area- Snow, Desert, Jungles, and Forests are all going to be seen in this extremely large world map filled with all sorts of items and weapons.
The terrain is now a factor in this game, you can overheat/dehydrate in extreme heat, and freeze to death in the cold if you’re not careful.
True to Zelda form, there are dungeons and bosses for each area.
You can rest assured that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have awesomely fun, engaging, and challenging bosses. Pictured below is the Stone Talus, one of the first bosses in the Breath of the Wild. You will end up fighting multiple bosses throughout the game, and if you’re familiar with the series at all, Ganon is of course the final boss.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild looks incredible, and is one of the games for the Nintendo Switch we are seriously in love with.
Bosses, items, and rupees are gonna be flying all over the place.
Breath of the Wild Wolf Link (Secret Character)
Did you ever play Twilight Princess?
There is a Breath of the Wild Wolf Link Amiibo that will spawn Wolf Link!
If you buy the Wolf Link Amiibo (Amazon) you just need to enable Amiibo settings, and upload him to the game.
Wolf Link will follow you around in the open map and help you attack enemies! He gets three hearts, and is super helpful. Breath of the Wild is a fairly challenging game, and this hidden character definitely takes some of the stress away.
Plus, Wolf Link is awesome.
