Zelda. Mario's well Mario. Zelda's something new and different.

Mario Odyssey. It's a masterpiece.

I'm pre-ordering Link's Awakening for my Switch Lite. They both release on the same day.

I'm in a similar position looking at Mario odyssey and breath of the wild.

I bought the Switch for Splatoon 2, and stayed for Breath of The Wild.

It's not for everyone, but I think ARMS is a great showcase for what the Switch is all about. Goofy fun game you play with friends that makes good use of the joycons.

I'd straight up say Mario Odyssey. I haven't played BotW yet.

na arms doesn't do it for me man. I think I'm gonna do Fire EMblem 3 houses and next up BOTW. ARMS is not my style of game.

@ProtossRushX: Yeah, ARMS is a niche game, and $60 is steep for it. But I love these kinds of games :), and it does make good use of the joycons.

I'd say to play it safe for the first game. Either Botw, Odyssey, MK8, or Smash Ultimate.

Weeks ago I had the dreamer edition in my cart and was all ready to pay until I was called away. Upon returning I found those pre orders sold out. Bummer.

@ProtossRushX: Excellent choice. I have 300+ hours into BotW and only had that game for the first 3 months I had my Switch. I never got bored of it.

@Solaryellow: Dang, sorry to hear. Will Nintendo make more Dreamer Artbooks sold separately?

I fear it will come down to being in the right store at the right time since hopefully the Dreamer Edition might be in store though in small quantity. Right now my local Best Buy has special editions galore of older games. This one might be the elusive unicorn though.
