Since the Nintendo Switch eShop has been getting flooded of late, it's gotten too easy to miss some of the smaller titles. These can be just as exciting as the big name stuff, so I wanted to highlight something you all might have missed from last week's releases. Riptide GP: Renegade hit Switch on Dec. 7 and is currently available for $9.99 in North America.
If you check out the media below and go, "OMG, it looks like a new Wave Race!" that's OK, because that was the first reaction that I had when I saw it. If you were to ask me for a list of games that needed to be revived on Switch, that would be one of them, and Vector Unit is a step ahead of the game with Riptide GP.
While already available for Steam, Xbox One, PS4, and mobile, this game looks like a great fit for #TeamHandheld, so I'm glad to see it make the jump. There's a campaign, local multiplayer for four, and eight-player online complete with cross-play with Steam users. I'm going to dive into this one soon to see if it holds up as well as it looks. Fingers crossed.
