Holidays With Nintendo

Jump with confidence into all-ages fun. Find the systems, games, toys, and more that’ll give everyone something to smile about.  Nintendo has great gifts for the entire family.  There is something for everyone, no matter the age.  We absolutely love our Nintendo Switch.  We play as a family, the kids play together, and it is so enjoyable.  It is great family time and keeps the kids thinking, playing and being creative.  We love it.  Each game offers something new and exciting.

Nintendo Switch: Can't wait to play your favorite Nintendo games? With the flagship Nintendo Switch system, you can play the hottest games on your TV or in handheld mode. Nintendo Switch lets you enjoy a library of thousands of games anytime, anywhere. It’s great for families, friends and gamers of all ages. 

Nintendo Switch Lite: Looking for a new way to play the hottest Nintendo Switch games? Nintendo Switch Lite is designed specifically for handheld play –so you can jump into your favorite games wherever you happen to be. It plays all of the games in the Nintendo Switch library that support handheld mode. Owners of either the flagship Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite systems can enjoy compatible multiplayer games in person or online, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. 

Animal Crossing New Horizons: Escape to a deserted island and create your own paradise as you explore, create and customize in the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game. Your island getaway has a wealth of natural resources that can be used to craft everything from tools to creature comforts. Friendly faces like Tom Nook and Isabelle will lend their services and happily help you as you hunt down insects, decorate and landscape your island, or enjoy sunsets on the beach while fishing in the ocean. Show off your island utopia to family and friends –or pack your bags and visit theirs! Whether playing online or with others at home, island living is even better when you can share it.  This is by far one of the kids' favorite games to play.

Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit: Race a real-world Mario Kart through your own home! Use the Nintendo Switch system to control your kart and watch as it reacts to what’s happening in the game as you boost and drift to victory. Mario Kart: Live Home Circuit is available in a Mario Set or Luigi Set. Your in-home course comes to life on-screen with a view right from behind the driver’s seat. Carter and Kennedy just received this game and they love it.  We have so much fun playing this as a family.  Check out the blog post here.

Super Mario 3D All Stars: Play three classic games anytime, anywhere –all in one package on the Nintendo Switch system! Jump into paintings in Super Mario 64, clean up paint-like goop in Super Mario Sunshine and fly from planet to planet in Super Mario Galaxy.  This is personally one of my favorites.  I loved Super Mario 64 growing up and it is so fun to play and teach Carter and Kennedy all the tricks and how to collect the stars!

Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise: Get your daily workout on and box (and bop) to the beat. Pass a Joy-Con controller (or two) to a workout partner to enjoy a 2-player boxing session lead by your in-game instructor. These virtual trainers have different personalities and styles, so try them out and find the one that suits you best! Complete achievements to receive tickets you can redeem for outfits to deck out your trainer in fitness fashion. Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise is a way to get in a guided workout, track your activity, and listen to some popular, upbeat jams.  This game comes out December 4th.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe: In this deluxe version of Pikmin 3, team up with a friend to grow and command five different crops of Pikmin to overcome obstacles, collect food for the home planet and dive into new side-story missions. With more options for cooperative play and settings that make it easy for newcomers to start their Pikmin journey, these tiny Pikmin are in for their biggest adventure yet!  This is on my kids' Christmas lists.

Just Dance 2021: Just Dance 2021 is the ultimate dance game with 40 hot tracks from chart-topping hits like “Don't Start Now" by Dua Lipa, "Feel Special" by TWICE, and "Señorita" by Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello. Start a dance party your friends and family can enjoy!  We have Just Dance 2020 and we play as a family all the time and it is a great workout too!  We definitely will be asking Santa for Just Dance 2021!

Minecraft Dungeons Hero Addiction: Fight your way through an all-new action-adventure game, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and set in the Minecraft universe! Brave the dungeons alone, or team up with friends! Up to four players can battle together through action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels –all in an epic quest to save the villagers and take down the evil Arch-Illager! The Hero Edition includes a Hero Cape, two player skins, and a chicken pet. It also includes Jungle Awakens and Creeping Winter DLC when they become available.

Untitled Goose Game: Untitled Goose Game is a slapstick-stealth-sandbox, where you are a goose let loose on an unsuspecting village. Make your way around town, from peoples' back gardens to the high street shops to the village green, setting up pranks, stealing hats, honking a lot, and generally ruining everyone’s day.

Here is a full list of every game we have and I highly recommend them all.  We love playing Nintendo Switch as a family, the kids enjoy playing together and it is so much fun.  I think it is a great console for anyone.  I also love that the kids can take it in the car and when we travel.  We would be completely lost without our Nintendo Switch and during this difficult year it has brought lots of fun to our home.

Paper Mario The Origami King (click here for a review of this game)

I also highly recommend Nintendo Labo kits.  It is a fun way to make, play and discover with Nintendo Switch.  There are 5 different kits and Carter and Kennedy love them all.  It teaches kids to craft and design and make things on their own while using their Nintendo Switch to play!
