Issue 209 — November 29, 2020
Hey, here's issue #209 of Switch Weekly, your Nintendo update. Hope you're doing well, and for those of you who celebrate, I hope you all had a lovely, safe Thanksgiving.
Not much commentary from me this week. However, I will note that the Switch Games Club for December will be kicking off in a few days and we'll be playing through the SNES classic 'The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past' — all this Age of Calamity chatter has me hankering for some classic Zelda. Details on how to join us here.
Just under 30 games out next week, including that Ubisoft game previously known as Gods & Monsters (here's a look at it running on Switch), crime strategy game Empire of Sin, that localized original Fire Emblem game, and a title called 'Absolute Drift' — you can make your own Joy-Con joke.
Thanks for reading,
P.S. — Want in on the Switch Weekly Discord? Hit reply on this email and I'll send you an invite.
REVIEW Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues — Described as a "shockingly competent beat 'em up" that's a "mostly faithful, entierly preposterous Cobra Kai adaptation". Although it's not without some technical hiccups.
