Looking for gaming inspiration? There’s no shortage of great content on the Nintendo Switch right now, and our playlist is here to prove it! This week’s mix includes everything from the recently released Advance Wars to the classic Breath of the Wild. Let’s dig in!

Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp is finally here! After 12 months of delays, we’re treated to the first Switch-based entry for the series. This collection of titles has time-travelled its way from the 2001 and 2003 Game Bot Advance titles. And, thankfully, it’s an entry worth waiting for! Watch for our upcoming review.

Meanwhile, with only just over two weeks to go until we’re graced with Tears of the Kingdom, it might be time to check back into Breath of the Wild to make sure everyone is ready for Links next big adventure in Hyrule.

Check out our playlist below to see what the team’s been playing lately. What’s on your playlist? Let us know in the comments section!


  • Tin Hearts (Switch):- Working on a review of this puzzle game set in a Victorian-era toymaker’s shop. Gameplay centers around guiding a number of tin soldiers from their container to the goal by placing various objects to direct their path. There’s plenty of depth to the puzzles, and a touching narrative is woven into the gameplay. Full review coming soon.
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3: Future Redeemed (Nintendo Switch): As mentioned on the latest Pure Nintendo Podcast, I recently jumped back into Xenoblade Chronicles 3 only to realize I’d forgotten all the intricacies of my carefully constructed party. The Future Redeemed DLC should allay that problem, as it comes with an all-new story and characters (Shulk! Rex!) that’ll allow us to start fresh. It’ll be a blast, but is it the end of the XC story arc?


  • Advance Wars: 1+2 Re-Boot Camp (Switch): I can’t explain how happy I am to see this series come back and Reboot Camp is everything I could have asked. I spent my whole weekend consumed by the game and I can’t wait to jump back in and start the 2nd game in the collection. Highly recommend Re-Boot Camp to everyone!
  • Return to Castlevania: Dead Cells DLC (Switch): Keep a lookout for my upcoming review of Return to Castlevania but what I will say is that it is absolutely fantastic. If you love Castlevania and have been missing getting a new adventure in the Castlevania universe, this DLC is for you.
  • Tron Identity (Switch): I’m a big fan of the Tron franchise and I was super happy to see a new game in that universe come out. It’s an adventure game that is clearly meant for existing Tron fans (it’s not super welcoming to newcomers that aren’t familiar with the existing lore) but as a Tron fan, it’s alot of fun. Although I must admit, it’s really, really short.


  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch): I started playing this about two weeks ago. I just completed the Champions ballad DLC again. I was really hyped to get my bike so I could travel the whole map with ease, but I completely forgot you are not allowed to use it in the desert. Which really annoyed me. Other than that, I’ll be heading to the castle soon. I just wanted a refresher on the gameplay and story before the sequel is released next month!!! :D


  • Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp (Switch): I’m so happy to finally be playing this game! I’m a huge Advance Wars fan, and this is scratching that turn-based strategy itch just perfectly.
  • Gripper (Switch): This action racer is full of speedy twists and turns set in a sci-fi world. With two distinct styles of gameplay, it packs plenty of variety. The super-high difficulty level that relies too much on luck mar the experience. Watch for my upcoming review!
  • Pupparazzi (Switch): This may be the cutest game I’ve ever played. You play the role of a photographer in a world full of dogs. They came in all sizes, bouncing around the environment and chasing sticks with tails wagging. Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that make you smile.
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch): I’m still trying to get a gold cup – and three stars – in every cup, which is no mean feat! Luckily, I love playing this racer, so it’s just pure fun.
