Switchaboo Pick of the Week

Even after Kirby Star Allies released last week, this week is still packed with some amazing games. But we can only pick one, so our Pick of the Week is…

 

Drum roll, please…

 

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse!

Shantae

Shantae has received a lot of love lately, and it’s great to see a second installment make its way to the Nintendo Switch.

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse is a fantastic Metroidvania style platformer with a tonne of hidden secrets that are just bursting with personality.

We would have picked Attack on Titan 2 if it weren’t for that hefty price tag.

Now we just hope that Shantae makes her way into Super Smash Bros..
