Quiz: Which Nintendo Game Series is Best For You?

What is there to consider when thinking about trying something new that you have yet to experience? While it’s true that there are so many game releases seemingly all the time, and that you very likely have missed out on some super exciting and unmissable games that fit your personality traits just like a glove, there’s no need to worry as we’ve got you covered!

Are you the type of gamer who likes to fly solo, or are you more into team multiplayer games? Are you a fan of the current Nintendo Switch, or do you have a soft spot in your heart for more of the classic consoles like Nintendo64 or the Nintendo Entertainment System, or even more recent members of the family like the Wii or GameCube?

To combine these different traits and more that attract gamers to various types of games, we’ve compiled a quick quiz for you to take! Think of this as a personality test for video games!

Best Ways to Customize a Nintendo Switch

Wholly portable and with removable controllers, the Switch takes the best pieces of Nintendo’s past successes and combines them into one piece of hardware that gives gamers an experience that’s different from anything else on the console market. With all these positive points this piece of equipment has going for it, along with the fact that millions of people own one of these hot commodities, there needs to be a way for people to claim their machine as their own. How does one go about this? Keyword: Customization!

What better way to claim your Switch as your own than showing how yours is different from everyone else’s? Just as one would do with a smartphone, one of the first things anyone might do after purchasing a brand new model would be to search for a case. On one hand, this is very important as the safety of your new phone needs to be a priority, and it would be devastating to suddenly drop it and watch it crack or break. But on the other hand, with so many people owning similar devices, it’s necessary to make yours stand out from the crowd! 

How to go about doing this? There are all sorts of stylish, fun, and colorful decals, stickers, cases, and so-called ‘skins’ that are available for Switch users to purchase and decorate with. You can even go to certain websites and design your own if you fancy the super personalized route. There’s no end to the possibilities, be sure to read more about them here!

All About Princess Peach

What’s in a name? Well, she’s the monarch of the Mushroom Kingdom and she’s always there to look up to, but she’s certainly no damsel in distress! She’s been part and parcel of the Nintendo stage longer than two other well known Nintendo princesses, Princess Daisy and Princess Rosalina. One of Nintendo’s most well-known and longest appearing characters, she’s a full-fledged member of the recurring group of characters showing up in video game series running the gamut from Mario Party to Mario Kart, not to mention the iconic and nothing short of famous Super Mario titles. And that’s just the tip of the metaphorical iceberg!

She may not always be a playable character, rather appearing as a main character in a large plot point for instance, but more often than not she is definitely playable and has been a popular choice for gamers of all stripes! This is in contrast to another famous and noteworthy Nintendo princess, none other than Princess Zelda! Despite Zelda’s name being given to the Zelda franchise, in almost every single game release since the dawn of the series, Princess Zelda is a non-playable character, and the point of each game in the series is to rescue her while playing as the character Link. Not anything bad, but we love how Princess Peach is often able to be selected as a playable character! A fun fact to note though, Peach has actually made a few cameos in two Zelda games, each time appearing in a picture within the game.

All About Those Kawaii Aesthetics

Throughout the years there have been many new characters introduced and even reintroduced by Nintendo in its beloved video games and franchises. Some are lovable, others are formidable, but plenty are just plain cute!

Depending on how much of a fan you are, you might be first in line to grab the just released newest edition of your favorite game series when a new title debuts in stores, or you might be more of the casual type who plays titles that stand out due to cool or kawaii looking characters, aesthetics, or even gameplay style. Whatever type of attributes gain your attention, one thing that unites gamers of all stripes is the fact that some characters are just plain memorable and play an outsized role in creating a brand image for their respective series. 

The most kawaii characters within the Nintendo universe truly all have that certain something. Their various aesthetics serve to draw us in and help us to enjoy a pleasant time while playing our favorite video games.
