Reader Recommendations

As we roll into the final month of the year, it's natural to be looking back over the Switch games that have come and gone and wondering if you've missed anything. Many of us here at Nintendo Life are trying to catch up with things that slipped our personal nets and, as we've noted before, there are inevitably things that have slipped through site's net as well.

So, six months after we asked for your personal hidden gem recommendations for great Switch games that we missed reviewing on the site, we thought it worth asking if there's anything else you've found since Switch launched back in 2017 that we've overlooked.

In the past six months we only managed to catch up with one release from earlier in the year — UnderHero — and there are still plenty of games hiding on the Switch eShop. So, we're asking Nintendo Life readers to once again send us their thoughts on Switch games they've enjoyed recently which seemed to fly under everyone else's radar. They needn't be recent releases, although let's make sure there are no repeats from the twelve games our community highlighted in June.

We'll read all your entries and reproduce our favourites in another feature showcasing games that the Nintendo Life community feels deserve some love.

Peach Thinking

Just as last time, the only prize for having your entry selected is seeing your words highlighted on the site, and the submissions process is identical to last time, too:

Submission guidelines

  • 100-word limit - Keep it brief! A history of the genre and deep-dive into every mechanic is unnecessary. Concentrate on what the game is about, what sets it apart from other games and why you enjoyed it.
  • One entry per game - Feel free to send your thoughts on multiple games, but there's no need to duplicate.
  • Choose only games that we haven't reviewed on the site - To check if a Nintendo Life review exists, simply type the name of the game into the search box at the very top of the page (look for the magnifying glass icon in the top left corner) and click on the game page that appears. If there's no review, you're good to go!

How to send a recommendation

  • Head to Nintendo Life's Contact page and select the subject "Switch eShop Hidden Gems" from the drop down menu (it's already done for you in the link above). Type your name, email and beautifully-crafted message into the appropriate box, hit send and Bob's your uncle!

Feel free to drop any questions in the comments section below. We look forward to seeing what you recommend.
