Even if the Switch remains a family console, over the years it has been able to enrich its toy library with games not recommended for those under 18. The editorial staff of JV today offers you 8 games intended for players who have passed the symbolic milestone of majority and are available on Nintendo’s hybrid console.
- Bayonetta 1 and 2
- Disco Elysium
- Doom Eternal
- The black
- South Park: The Fractured but Whole
- The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim
- Wolfenstein II : The New Colossus
- Bayonetta 1 and 2
We start this selection with two Beat’em All – Bayonetta et Bayonetta 2 – developed by Platinum games in which you play a witch fighting against angelic enemies in the city of Vigrid, a fictional place located in Europe. The games are super dynamic. Moreover, the provocative character of Bayonneta denotes with the usual image of the main characters which can only make it more interesting. The pace is frantic and each weapon has its own range of combos to master. You will also be able to use magic to make your attacks even more impressive. Once in portable mode, the first game can become a bit messy because the license has always had an impressive number of monsters on the screen. This negative point is swept away in the second game.
Disco Elysium : The Final Cut is an RPG developed by ZA/UM. A detective must here solve an investigation in the heart of an alternate 20th century in the coastal town of Revachol. The customization options are extensive. They range from the appearance of the main character to physical and social character traits. In addition, each choice has consequences on the adventure. You should not follow your blind skills either because they can lead to very complicated situations. The Switch version takes the touch screen into account and integrates it into the gaming experience. You can thus validate your dialogue choices or even interact with the objects of the decor. The game also uses the console’s internal clock to trigger certain events at specific times.
Developed by id Software, Doom Eternal puts you in the shoes of a Slayer facing off against the armies of hell. If the Switch version is not the best in terms of graphics, the game remains addictive and rhythmic. Stress can quickly reach heights in the face of ever more numerous and belligerent enemies. Survival here requires full mastery of weapons and a strategy that evolves in real time. In addition to the single-player campaign, Doom Eternal has a multiplayer mode in which you and/or your friends become demons. This asymmetrical gameplay requires organization and coordination from the demons, while the Slayer will have to show composure and concentration.
The investigation game The black, developed by Team Bondi, also had the right to a port on Nintendo Switch. You find yourself in the shoes of an LAPD detective, the Los Angeles police, responsible for solving the most sordid cases. It will be necessary to take the time to question each witness and to study all the clues. If you choose to intimidate him, you will need to use the evidence recovered from the crime scenes. You can also explore the city at the wheel of a dozen vehicles, taking the time to stop to pacify the streets of the city of angels. The game sometimes takes too long, but its “Dark” atmosphere should appeal to lovers of detective novels and the so-called “Hardboiled” literary movement. The Switch version immediately offers you all the DLCs as well as some collectibles.
South Park: The Fractured but Whole
South Park: The Fractured but Whole is a must-have on Nintendo Switch for all fans of the South Park animated series. The game developed by Ubisoft is a direct follow-up to the previous episode… The Stick of Truth. This time, the Coon and his gang go in search of a missing cat to collect a reward of 100 dollars. They then hope to be able to fund the Coon franchise. The Annale of Destiny retains the turn-based combat system of the video game saga. In addition, 10 classes are available in addition to a slew of spells. The game sometimes lacks difficulty, but the references and the spirit of the game are a credit to the franchise. The humor is trashy and impertinent, and that’s why newcomers quickly risk being destabilized. Nevertheless, aficionados of the license may be disappointed not to find the usual VF in the cast.
In The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim, the player embodies the Dragonborn, the only being able to put an end to the conflicts that ignite Skyrim, a land torn by civil wars, and to defeat the dragons. The lore of Elder Scrolls is very extensive. If new players will not understand all the references at first glance, there is no need to have played the other games to enjoy this fifth episode. Skyrim is known for its impressive game life and vast open world. Since its release in 2011, this RPG has been equipped with many modes to improve the gameplay or the graphics. Alas, they are not compatible with the Switch version. However, Zelda and Super Smash Bros amiibos offer outfits and even gear to compensate.
Wolfenstein II : The New Colossus
Wolfenstein II : The New Colossus from Machine Games studios is the direct sequel to The New Order. This is an uchronic FPS where Nazi Germany won the Second World War. Captain William Joseph Blazkowicz faces a daunting challenge…to reclaim the United States under German occupation. If the gameplay has seen many improvements, the narratiion sometimes lacks originality. However, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus remains an excellent game when it comes to letting off steam and making the powder talk. Special mention to the caricatural characters and the spicy dialogues inspired by cinema bis.
