He did this fifteen years ago with a collection for the DS called 42 all-Time Classic. The operation nostalgia repeats itself now with 51 Worldwide Games for Switch, that collects in a single cartridge an infinite number of mini-games that have made the history of entertainment from the table.

View the wide selection of pastimes, inevitably each of you will develop preferences, and it will return more often on some mini-games but, at least initially, the approach resembles what you might have in front of a table sumptuously laid out: you spizzica quickly in search of the bits that are most suitable to their palate. In this Nintendo, there is help with a division (optional) in the categories that allows us to immediately frame the potential “bites” delicious.

It would surely have been simpler to present the public with the classic plank anonymous, but Nintendo loves to take care of every aspect of his games 51 Worldwide Games has opted for the menu is definitely more engaging and “social”. The first thing you’ll have to choose an avatar from a handful of predefined templates. You may not alter them in any way, but a card with a few details, you will be associated with other players, real and not.

According to the challenge chosen you will have a different control system. The touch controls are quite precise, even if in games such as darts, or bowling once in a while tend to lose a bit of the compass. The problems we have had have been thankfully sporadic and linked solely to a pair of titles, in which you can still play through the JoyCon. The average duration of each title is a few minutes, but there are also challenges that can last longer… a challenge to the “Hare and Hounds”, for example, can last a few seconds but even a whole half an hour.

Every time you play any of the title of the collection you will unlock some funny curiosity, which will be presented during the loading screens, fortunately quite short. Complete a game means also unlock various achievements in the form of medals divided according to levels of difficulty.
