Nintendo Is Back

Well, not that it ever went away, but 2017 has to go down as a roaring success for Nintendo. The Wii U wasn’t a hit and the naysayers were out, but a series a cracking games, not to mention the launch of the Switch has made Nintendo relevant again. Games like Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 and Metroid: Samus Returns are up there with the best titles of the year, while the seminal Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is arguably one of the greatest video games ever made. Nintendo may never again dominate mainstream gaming, but its back to rude health nevertheless.
