Topping the Metacritic charts is a hard feat, but it looks like 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will become one of the best rated Nintendo Switch games of 2022, beating the likes of Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
While many big Nintendo Switch games are still in development and expected to create a lot of buzz, most of these are still in production and are not ready to hit shelves.
However, in April 2022, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim will be arriving on Switch consoles and has already cemented its place as one of the best rated Nintendo Switch games of the year.
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Tops Review Charts
Things could still shift depending on how many new review scores are released, but 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is on course to release on April 12 as one of the highest-rated games available on Nintendo Switch for 2022. That means it will be rated among critics over titles like Kirby and the Forgotten Land, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus. There are some factors to consider when comparing 13 Sentinels to bigger games like Kirby and Pokemon.
First of all, 13 Sentinels has a Metacritic score of 90, based on 19 reviews placed on the site. That’s a great haul so far, and the number of high ratings helps keep it at the top of the list. However, Kirby And The Forgotten Land has a Metacritic score of 85, based on 106 Critic Reviews, and many would say that is a harder feat to pull off. Regardless of how you break down the numbers, scoring so many top reviews before launching is still a great way to make your debut on Nintendo Switch, and possibly surprise fans into seeing what all the fuss is about.
First released on PS4, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is described as a 2D sidescrolling adventure that blends impressive art and environments with fast-paced, top-down combat. That’s without mentioning the elements that lean heavily into the visual novel genre and battles featuring kaiju mech suit action. More reviews could change the final score, but expect plenty of fan input when 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim arrives on Nintendo Switch on April 12.
