The strategy RPG series, Fire Emblem, explores new ground in this Dynasty Warriors style game for the Nintendo Switch. Fire Emblem Warriors is an action-oriented Musou game in which the player plays as various characters from the series' rich history of games. While the gameplay is similar to the large-scale battles of the Dynasty Warriors series, Fire Emblem Warriors does incorporate a few of the series' strategy RPG elements, such as issuing tactical commands to your troops, and the Weapons Triangle system that determines how effective your attacks are to certain foes.

Developer: Omega Force, Team Ninja

Price: $59.99

Despite its relatively short lifespan, My Hero Academia has managed to become a cultural zeitgeist. So, it's no surprise to see the superhero Shonen Jump series receive its own video game for the Nintendo Switch. My Hero One's Justice is a 3D arena fighter populated by all the great heroes (and villains) from the anime. The game does a fine job of replicating all the bombastic quirks into its flashy one-on-one combat system. It's fast, fun, and beautiful too. Definitely a game for fans of My Hero Academia to check out.
