The past several days saw the release of a few games on the Nintendo Switch and the 3DS. The first big release can be found on the Switch with Overcooked 2 released on August 7th where you have to once again save the Onion Kingdom by putting your cooking skills to the test once again. You can go it alone or with up to three friends as you chop, steam, and fry your way through some pretty crazy levels. Just watching the announcement trailer from June makes me wonder...just who thought up these kitchens and put them where they are? I mean, at least one of them has you cooking in the middle of the street of all places.
On the slightly more sane side of things is the other big release over the past week which was WarioWare Gold, released on August 3rd for the Nintendo 3DS. Wario returns with a new collection of three hundred different microgames where you'll have to use the touch screen, tilt the screen, push buttons, and utilize the 3DS's microphone in order to succeed. Basically what you've come to expect from a WarioWare game, and yet it's a series that I never really get completely tired of. Plus it's Wario so you can't really go wrong there.

All funds from one card must be loaded in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch, Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be used in any Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single Nintendo Account.
Customers in the U.S. and Canada ages 18 and older can also link a PayPal account to their Nintendo Account to purchase digital games and content for the Nintendo Switch system both on-device and from the Nintendo website. Once the accounts are linked, users may also use PayPal as a payment option when buying digital content for the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS family systems from the Nintendo website.
Remember that Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii, New Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS, New Nintendo 2DS XL and Nintendo 2DS feature parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their children can access.
