It’s been a busy week for Nintendo fans and for us at Nintendo Life! Not only is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Wave 2 finally released, but Game Freak and The Pokémon Company gave us a lot of news about Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet! Nintendo also delivered its financial results for the first quarter, where it reported a drop in sales.

And while some of us really want more Mario Kart DLC tracks like Baby Park, others are pretty excited about the new Pokémon details. Lastly, we all have some games on our Switch that are hard to categorize, so why not check out our list of the best games that don’t really have a genre? Or does it have multiple genres? They are just difficult to categorize. Unique, let’s say.

Now is the time to relax and discuss our weekend game plans. a few metersMembers of the Nintendo Life team have done just that below, so feel free to read our posts and then join your own via our comments section. Enjoy!

It’s been a full Xenoblade Chronicles 3 week, and that will continue this weekend. At 40 hours, I’m a little advanced on chapter 4, and I’m not bored one bit. The side quests are brilliant, the combat has almost fully opened up at this point, the characters and story are fantastic, and the music is so right. Every time I start a Chain Attack, I want to jump out of my seat and cheer thanks to This music.

So Xenoblade 3 is phenomenal and practically impossible to put down, yes, but I think I’ll also challenge my partner in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The new courses are pretty cool, so I’m excited to play them online with him (and beat him, of course).

So you know I said last week that I wouldn’t be getting Xenoblade Chronicles 3 for the foreseeable future? Well, I lied. It’s not my fault though! I had a really busy week and actually forgot it was my birthday so I used some birthday money and downloaded Xenoblade a couple of days ago. I’m not really into it, but I just beat my first Elite Monster, so I guess you could say I’m a bit of an expert at this point. However, I love it so far; the more mature tone of the narrative contrasts sharply with Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which I really didn’t get along with.

Elsewhere, Cyberpunk 2077 has finally hooked me. I bought it back on launch day for Xbox, but it clearly wasn’t ready for prime time yet, so I got a full refund through Microsoft. Now that it’s updated for current gen systems, I’ve bought it again (at a discounted price, I might add) and wowIt is a completely different experience! I think it’s a shame that CDPR didn’t give themselves enough time to get the game in the right state for release, because it could have changed the game a lot. As it stands, it’s an amazing game that now feels a bit underdog.

I’m in Montreal this weekend, taking care of cats for a friend, so only have my Switch… and access to his PS5.

I’m still playing Rune Factory 4 and just got past what I think is Act One, but I might as well give Demon’s Souls a shot!
