We enter one of the most interesting puzzle games of all those who have arrived during this first half of the year
Although it is not the first time it is given, far from it, it is not very frequent to find simultaneous video game launches for two Nintendo, Switch and Nintendo 3DS consoles in this case. But on this occasion and given the nature of the title, the truth is that it is a production that perfectly fits the characteristics of both. Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is a great puzzle game that offers fun and tremendously engaging fun once you get the point.
Developed by Indies Zero, this is the typical title that unfortunately I think will go largely unnoticed -especially Switch- when it is released on June 8th. Most likely it will be overshadowed by other games of greater “cache” as Mario Tennis Aces or Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, for example, title that will also appear on both consoles. A pity, given that I consider that this new production has enough qualities to satisfy almost any nintendero user.
Rarely have I found a game of similar characteristics graced with such a well-told story. A completely crazy and completely less serious plot that is starring a young man (boy or girl, as we wish) called Musashi. This argument runs through a generous assortment of chapters full of video sequences and illustrations, and transports us to a world of colorful aesthetics … but that has been hit by a war as devastating as it is absurd: the Sushi War! Dish will have been the cause of a confrontation between the hordes of the Empire and the troops of the Rebellion. And as often happens in these cases, it will be the first that will have emerged victorious. The consequence of this conflict will have been the suppression of sushi, being a kind of taboo subject, a fact opposed by the protagonist, whose intention is to make sushi known to everyone. To this main plot so light and simple other parallel stories are added something more “deep” within the self-assured tone that holds Sushi Striker: the Way of Sushido, as for example the disappearance of the parents of the protagonist and, also, of Franklin, a platform launcher that establishes friendship with the protagonist at the beginning of the game but that is captured by the troops of the Empire.
Musashi is not alone in his fight against the Empire, as he has the help of the so-called Sushi Geniuses who provide support in every battle. These curious characters, very friendly for the most part, are able to supply us with special abilities of all kinds (changing the color of the dishes, reinforcing our resistance against the attacks of our opponents, etc.). There are dozens of these beings, who are also gaining experience and improving their skills as we progress, which also happens with the main character, Musashi, may increase their level of health and strength among other things throughout his trip .
Switch and Nintendo 3DS receive a puzzle title endowed with a great personality and that offers us a sensational and quite extensive story mode. Its formula of game is very entertaining when you do with her, although some that another modality of additional game beyond the competitive mode to doubles would have seated the group of wonder. Of the best within its genre so far this year in both consoles.
