As ridiculous as it sounds, this game has an intense backstory. Musashi, the game protagonist was raised in a world were sushi is forbidden. So as the player, you must have converyor belt sushi battles to defeat the sushi-hating empire and save the world! It’s essentially a puzzle game on the switch. The best part? You can battle you friends in multiplayer mode.

Release Date: 13 July
If there’s one thing that Nintendo knows how to do, it’s platformers. And speaking of platformers, here’s another one! This is one massive puzzle game, a little different from the leaps and fancy tricks in Super Mario Odyssey but it looks fantastic regardless. This game will also be available on the Nintendo 3DS.

Super Smash Bros.
