Preordering might be a bit of a taboo in the gaming world, but sometimes, you know what you want, and in a world of scalpers and snazzy special editions, it can be reassuring to have your release-day copy nice and secure ahead of time. Have you recently preordered any Switch games? Which was the most recent?
I don’t do a lot of preordering. The most recent Switch preorder I placed was for Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. My girlfriend and I got the game as a Valentine’s Day gift to ourselves, since co-oping the original Super Mario 3D World is one of our earliest memories with one another. The preorder was worth it, which I knew ahead of time because I had already played and loved Super Mario 3D World. Before 3D World, I can only remember preordering one other Switch game – another plumber-centric title, the excellent Super Mario Odyssey. I guess I’m two-for-two so far, at least.
My next preorder will almost certainly be Super Monkey Ball: Banana Mania, what with it being a port of two of my favorite games of all time. Another easy decision.
