Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (January 16th)

Another week has whizzed on by, giving us lots of exciting news on Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and New Pokémon Snap, as well as the announcement of a brand new Switch console edition and a Pokémon x Katy Perry collab of all things.

Thankfully, though, it’s now time to sit back, relax, and discuss our gaming plans. Members of the Nintendo Life team have done just that below (and yes, it looks like two of us have ended up treating ourselves to gorgeous GameCubes recently). Feel free to join in with your own entries via our comment section. Enjoy!

Late to the party here but my main aim is finally beating Super Mario Galaxy again off the 3D All-Stars Collection. I’ve been bouncing between several single-player games though, so Hades will likely factor in too. I rebought it a few weeks back on Switch, after sinking many hours into the PC release, so a couple of trips to Tartarus are likely. Been trying to beat my fastest escape time of just under 13 mins. Outside of the Switch, The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II will probably get loaded up on my PS5 too, since I started it last weekend.

I’ve known about the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game for a long time, but for some reason it has never managed to make it into my shopping basket. Being a huge fan of the movie (and yes, I know it was a graphic novel first) this really needs to change. Zion literally can’t stop talking about it and gushing over his fond memories playing it the first time around, so he’s convinced me I should really pick this one up on the eShop and give it a go. I’m looking forward to getting reacquainted with Ramona Flowers, Knives Chau and those evil exes.
