While it hasn’t had a release on the scale of Breath Of The Wild and probably isn’t on the level of PlayStation’s 2018, the company have definitely had twelve months worth celebrating.
It’s seen some mega franchises join the Switch for the first time, some brilliant new IPs and some great titles from old favourites. There’s games which make full use of the motion control abilities of the console, games which use it lightly, and games where it’s ignored completely in favour of a proper console gaming experience.
As is typical of Nintendo, there’s a wide range of titles this year to enjoy.
After the Wii enjoyed massive success but was firmly labelled a party console, the follow up release of the WiiU was a huge flop. With the Nintendo Switch though, they’re firmly back in the big leagues, competing with Xbox and PlayStation.
They have some of the most recognisable franchises in gaming, and even better, they’re churning out some of their best entries in years.
Combined with the stellar rise of some newcomers, it’s not hard to see why Nintendo have enjoyed staggering sales in 2019.
