Switchaboo’s Pick of the Week!

There were A LOT of releases this week, but unfortunately there is quite a bit of shovelware. However, there are a few notable releases and we believe that this week’s best game and Switchaboo’s Pick of the Week is…

Drum roll, please…

The Longest Five Minutes!

This game gives us such Earthbound flashbacks, it’s so heartwarming! If Nintendo aren’t going to give us Mother 3, then at least we have The Longest Five Minutes.

NIS America have shown unwavering support for the Nintendo Switch, and that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
