Welcome to the latest SwitchArcade Round-Up! In this edition, we have a review of Convergence: A League of Legends Story, along with a slew of new releases hitting the eShop today. Plus, we’ll also cover new and expiring sales for those hoping to snag a deal.
Review: Convergence: A League of Legends Story
Convergence is Riot Forge’s latest release, bringing the League of Legends universe to all platforms. This Metroidvania-based game specializes in the abilities-based game, offering players excellent level design in a quest involving time manipulation mechanisms on both new and old maps. In spite of the efforts the developer has made in relation to accessibility, such as difficulty level adjustments to match various encounter types, there are still a couple of flaws that need fixing. The game has long load times and variable performance, hindering the excellent gameplay it offers. In conclusion, Convergence is a fantastic platformer that we wholeheartedly recommend on other consoles, but it requires optimization for the Nintendo Switch version.
