Hello and welcome to the first instalment of Jacktendo Selects, a new monthly feature in which will see me countdown my favourite games on Switch in the month that they came out and reveal the game I’m most looking forwards to from the following month!
There won’t always be 10 games listed in every instalment, but for this instalment there is! But there are some rules. A game can only appear in this list, if I have personally played it, reviewed it and if it is a full game, so the likes of Splatoon 2’s Global Testfire Demo will not be featuring an appearance.

Welcome to another Miketendo64 editorial and coming up on today’s piece, I’ll be arguing the Pros and Cons of Nintendo bringing their mobile titles to Nintendo Switch.
Now straight away a few of you may be thinking “why would they want to?” and you would be right to do so. I adore Super Mario Run and I even enjoy Fire Emblem Heroes and while they are a great mobile representation of the videogame series’ they represent, its a whole different ballgame if they were playable on one of Nintendo’s available home consoles. But then again, whilst they may not be the best representation, they would still act as great introduction titles for gamers who have never played a single Mario/Fire Emblem game. Titles that could get new to Nintendo/Switch owners interested in buying Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors, Fire Emblem Switch and even the Mario/Rabbids game we’ve been hearing Ubisoft are working on.
