Captain Olimar and the gang are back!
Well, that's September down and we're heading into the scariest month of the year (although considering the past nine months of 2020, we've had more than enough of scary events thank-you-very-much — we're hoping for a nice sedate October). September played host to some excellent Switch games, not least Super...
2K save the day
August, you ask? Yes, apparently that entire month flew by in what felt like a week and once again we're back to take a look at the Switch games coming soon to your favourite Nintendo console.

Balan Wonderworld nowhere to be seen
UK physical chart data is now in for the week ending 3rd April, revealing that Super Mario 3D All-Stars has managed to stay in the top ten for another week despite being discontinued by Nintendo.

And you can probably guess which ones

The first Nintendo game to do so since Mario Kart Wii in 2008
Saying Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a tremendous success for Nintendo would be an understatement. Still topping the UK charts in 2021, Twitter recently revealed it as their most talked-about g
Rise and fall
EA's FIFA 21 has reclaimed the top spot in the UK charts for the week ending December 26th, dethroning the previous top dog, Assassin's Creed Valhalla. FIFA 21 sold 8% more physical copies compared to last week. The embattled Cyberpunk 2077 slumped to eight place (it was third last week), and several evergreen Switch titles also saw...
