PIKA PIKA: Sword & Shield are the franchise's first outing on a major console


This is the perfect game for 30-year-old veterans of the series and newcomers to the game alike. The Galar region is based on London with some familiar Pokemon making an appearance and the addition of some brand new ones!

Sword and Shield have countless hours of post-game content so the game doesn’t end when the story does!

New gameplay features, such as Fatal Blows and Krushing Blows, combined with a fantastic story set in a corrupted Raiden, make for a brilliant Mortal Kombat game and is well worth including on your Christmas wish list this year.


Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled

Not a lot of people may have heard that Sony's loveable Bandicoot Crash, had made his way over to the Switch.
