It feels weird saying it but with ten games being released, it’s a slow week for the Switch. But that can be justified with a certain first-party release coming out this week.

You probably already know what that game is (because there’s a picture of it just above… it’s Kirby Star Allies), but let’s get stuck into the releases…


Note: All prices are in AUD and all release dates are for the Australian eShop. Also, releases can still be subjected to change after the release of this update.

Switchaboo’s Pick of the Week

Do I really have to hype up this one?

Drum roll, please…

Kirby Star Allies!

Kirby Star Allies

Surprise! I bet you didn’t see that one coming.

But in all seriousness, this is the first HD Kirby game that doesn’t involve us looking down at the 480p Wii U Game Pad.

The visuals for Kirby Star Allies look stunning, the gameplay seems as tight as ever and throwing hearts and enemies and making them your friends looks adorable!

From what we’ve heard with previews, Kirby Star Allies really shines when playing it in co-op. So get your friends and family around the TV, pass them a Joy-Con and have some fun together!
