Issue 164 — January 19, 2020
Hey, here's issue #164 of Switch Weekly, with all the Nintendo stuff you need to see.
So, still no Direct 'proper', but a Smash Bros presentation instead. I'm all for this weekly content drip Nintendo - keep it coming. 😉
I've been playing a new little indie brawler this week called Super Crush KO. It's fun, and super colourful - which makes a change from most run-n-gun fighters. I've reviewed it, and you can check it out here (any shares of this would also be appreciated).
Oh, I also was a guest on Daryl Baxter's excellent Pal Keys podcast - which I've linked up in the issue below - if you want to hear my voice, that's where you can find it. 😅
Over 20 games hitting the eShop next week, including Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and a couple of Sega Ages re-releases.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week.
REVIEW Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore — This one-of-a-kind JRPG finds a new home on the Switch, and this reviewer pegs it as worthy of the encore.

REVIEW Super Crush KO — Despite this one being a tad repetitive, I had fun with it (the combo system in particular).
Chris Brandrick // Switch Weekly
PODCAST PAL Keys - ‘L is Real’ with Chris Brandrick — I spoke with Daryl Baxter about all things Switch Weekly and how it came to be, along with discussing my favourite game and boss battle. Biased, but I think it's a good listen.

REVIEW To the Moon — "may be light on gameplay, but it is a storytelling powerhouse that explores the themes of love and regret".
Ben Reeves // Game Informer
MAGAZINE Switch Player 36 — The latest issue of the excellent Switch Player magazine is out now, and there's a free sample up online now for you to have a look at to get a taste. If you miss printed game mags, I'd reccomend giving this one a go.
