This game just came out at the end of March, so you may want to act quickly while supplies last if you’re interested and haven’t picked it up yet. You’ll only save a couple of bucks, but every dollar counts when you’re trying to play through the Nintendo Switch’s vast software library of new, remastered, and exclusive games.

In Yoshi’s Crafted World, players take control of the dinosaur and set out on a treasure hunt in worlds that can be played forward and backward. The game features co-op and a Mellow Mode that gives Yoshi wings so you can relax while collecting all the gems.

Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

Whether you’re playing or planning to play the Nintendo Switch docked or on the go, you may be wanting to improve the gamepad experience. The Joy-Cons and the grip that’s included with the console may a bit uncomfortable for some and also as able to endure rigorous gameplay for long periods. That’s where the Switch Pro Controller comes into play.

What games will Nintendo Switch 2 launch with? We have some ideas
Mario and friends zip through a race course in Mario Kart 8.

We’re officially on “new console watch.” Reports from credible publications like Eurogamer say that Nintendo secretly showed developers its next system behind closed doors at this year’s Gamescom. While it’s only a rumor, it’s a realistic one. We’re six years into the Nintendo Switch’s lifespan and even the longest-running consoles turn over at eight. If Nintendo’s next system is one or two years away, it’s time to start lining up support from third-party developers.

We’ve speculated on features we’d want in a new system before, but the reality of a new platform has me asking another question: What games would you launch with something like this? The Nintendo Switch’s launch day was crucial to its long-term success thanks to a bonafide classic in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While the rest of its launch lineup wasn’t as impressive, Nintendo capitalized fairly quickly with titles like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2. If Nintendo’s going to push Switch owners over to a new system, it’ll have to roll out the big guns.

This hidden Switch feature will change the way you play Nintendo games
Two players play Nintendo Switch.

Any time I discuss the latest Switch game with my friends, I usually hear the same critique: “I wish I could remap the controls.” Major Switch exclusives like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Metroid Dread are seriously lacking in control customization, which can be frustrating if your brain has a specific idea of what a gamepad layout is.

There’s a fairly good excuse as to why those games don’t include controller customization options, though. It's because of a system-level controller remap option tucked deep away in the Nintendo Switch’s settings menu. If you didn’t know that existed (as few of my friends seem to), get ready for a solution to all your control issues that’s been hiding in plain sight all this time.
