Switchaboo Pick of the Week

Despite the long list of releases, nothing particularly wowed us. However, there are a few great games here, and out of those games our Pick of the Week is…

 

Drum roll, please…

 

Scribblenauts Showdown!

Scribblenauts Showdown keeps the charming visuals whilst adding wacky party gameplay. Scribblenauts entries are common for Nintendo systems, and it’s fantastic to see a new one on Nintendo’s new console.

We can’t wait to get stuck into this new Scribblenauts game as it never fails to put smiles on our faces.
