BIt’s seldom simple figuring out which, if any, version of a Ubisoft game to buy. Now they’ve made a toys-to-life game that we like, but figuring out which figures and accessories to buy to enjoy Starlink: Battle For Atlas is confusing.

Ubisoft complicates things further by allowing players to purchase digital versions of the toys instead of physical ones. Don’t worry, we’ve got it all figured out.

Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei debuted three new products at a launch event yesterday. The Mate 20 is a slick flagship phone that checks all the existing boxes and then some. Then there’s the Mate 20 Pro, a slightly bigger and even more powerful version of the base phone.

And finally, the Mate 20 X, gaming focused phone which Huawei ridiculously positioned as a superior competitor to Nintendo’s Switch. They even showed side-by-side comparisons on stage to prove it.

When Nintendo’s Star Fox crew shows up at the beginning of Ubisoft’s new toy-based space epic, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, they’re ready to see the adventure through to the very end. They’re a surprisingly big part of the Switch version of the game.

Ubisoft’s toys-optional toys-to-life space opera arrives this week on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch. While I’ve only had a couple of days to dive into the sci-fi adventure, I’ve already found several things to love about Starlink: Battle for Atlas.

If you have never played The World Ends With You before, the Nintendo Switch version released yesterday is not a bad way to get into it. Final Remix retains the game’s great sense of humour, its fantastic music, and Tetsuya Nomura’s most restrained character designs.

But if you have played it before — say, if you’re a big fan of the original 2007 Nintendo DS version, like me — you will most likely be disappointed by the Switch port.

Earlier today I mentioned how The World Ends With You: Final Remix plays basically like the tablet version, which is all well and good. There's another control scheme though, where you use a single JoyCon like a mouse pointer, slashing and waving at the screen.

It's a neat idea. And it's basically unplayable.

Nintendo has continued to build out the NES library in its Switch Online app with the previously-announced addition of NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball. But it also had a surprise: “Living the life of luxury!,” a hacked save file for The Legend of Zelda that starts players out with a full inventory and lots of cash..

I didn’t hate the Switch when I reviewed it last year, but after spending an entire day hunting it down in stores I could easily say it wasn’t exceptional enough to warrant camping out or paying Craigslist scalpers. A year later I stand by that sentiment, but I don’t have to stand in line any more. I can stop into any store and pick one up, hassle-free, for $399. Anyone can. Which is wonderful, because despite the system’s vocal gamer fans, the Nintendo Switch is the console that’s actually best for every else.

Mega Man 11 is a fine game, and a worthy eleventh entry in a series that once set the bar for tricky platformers. It also feels oddly shallow, the latest iteration of a formula that has gone largely unchanged for decades.

Mega Man 11 is great at being a Mega Man game. Maybe that’s why it didn’t do much for me.

Super Mario Party comes out on Friday. It’s the series’ debut on Switch and the first main entry since 2015’s ill-fated Mario Party 10 on Wii U. It has 80 new mini games, one of which even utilises multiple Switches to create a shared, continuous screen.

What it doesn’t have is handheld mode support, the first in a handful of Switch games this season with hyper-specific controller demands that seem to run counter to the spirit of the Switch’s “play anywhere” mantra.
