We’re in the process of making a few changes to the content and structure of World of Switch.
There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes that we don’t publicise much. We’d like to change this.
Here’s what’s changing:
- Instead of being a general Switch site, World of Switch will focus primarily on charts, stats and reviews.
- We’ll be sharing reviews from other sites on Twitter. (We’ve already started doing this.)
- We’ll be scaling back our general news posts – such as announcing new and upcoming games, or changes to the eShop. Instead, we’ll be working on some improvements to the WOS website so you can find out what we’ve recently changed in our games database.
- We’ll be closing the current blog, and replacing it with a new section on the WOS website. Currently, the website and blog are separate, which means we have to work twice as hard to get people to check out the content. We might even write an editorial piece.
- Finally, we’ll be working on further improvements to the website, to… well, improve it!
This could be the last post on the (current) blog… if so, we hope to see you on the WOS website and on Twitter.
Thanks for reading!

The latest NeoGeo game, Magician Lord, is now available to purchase from the Switch eShop.
The game can be played by 1 or 2 players, and is available for the usual NeoGeo price of £6.29.
Sonic Mania is clearly taking the world by storm.
It hit the eShop at No 1, nudging previous chart dominators Overcooked, Splatoon 2, and Minecraft by one position each.
So far, we’ve collected five reviews from our specially selected review partners, and Sonic Mania has an average review score of 8.8. This puts it on equal footing with Cave Story+, slightly behind Minecraft, but ahead of Puyo Puyo Tetris, Thumper, Shovel Knight, and Splatoon 2.
