Issue 76 — April 15, 2018
Football Manager

Hey, here's issue #76 of Switch Weekly, with all the Switch news worth seeing.

I picked up Snake Pass whilst it was on sale so I've put a few hours into that this week. For what looks like an unassuming, cutesy puzzle-platformer, it gets pretty challenging pretty fast. I have a new found appreciation for the effort involved when sidewinding.

Anyway not much else for me to say this week, other than congrats to Nintendo on those BAFTA wins. As ever enjoy the issue,
Cheers, Chris.

Surprise — Football Manager out now for Nintendo Switch
Despite being hinted as coming to the Switch, I'm always a little bit suspicious when a game gets released with out much of a heads up, or previews. Early impressions seem fine, but I'll be sure to link up some reviews next week.
