Switchaboo’s Pick of the Week!

With the hotly anticipated Owlboy finally coming to a Nintendo system, Bayonetta 1 & 2 having another lease on life, and another retail release in Monster Energy Supercross – The Video Game, there are a few hot releases this week. But as always, we have to choose one, and that one is…


Drum roll, please…


Now hear us out… we LOVE the Bayonetta series, and the collection is a great way for people to play the second installment that came out on a system with a less than desirable install base.

However, Fe is an all new title that has been featured heavily by Nintendo. The game boasts a beautiful world that is free for you to explore.

Zoink Games are always known for their unique artstyle, but this is the first time that they’ve attempted a 3D title. With years of development and EA supporting the project, we’re very excited about the release of this ambitious game.


We are planning to do a review of Fe, so if you’d like to keep track of future releases and exciting Nintendo Switch related articles, click here to visit our Facebook Page and perhaps even give us a like and a follow.
