Last year, the kids received a Nintendo Switch for Christmas from their grandparents – and since then, weekend gaming privileges are hard-earned over here! The kids were stoked to have the chance to put the action-adventure video game, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, on the Nintendo Switch Console to the test – complete with Starter pack, Weapons kit, Pilot kit, and Starship pack.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an open-world space saga that features pretty cool modular toy technology – so players can assemble and customize real-world physical starships, link the starships to their game controller, and launch into epic adventures across the Atlas star system. The game can be played in single-player mode or with a friend in two-player split-screen local co-op mode.
Each modular component and pilot attached to the starship appears instantly in-game, allowing players to directly affect the course of their battle in ways that feel meaningful.
The kids really enjoy customizing their starships before mounting them to the controller. They also love the toys-to-life aspect of space adventuring and the feeling of playing pilot (with distinct personalities!), flying their ships and exploring planets, creatively swapping out their wings and weapons – and so much more. The kids concur that there are so many visual aspects to see and explore in this game. All the battles, crafting, ships, pilots and weapons allow for endless fun. This game received a big thumbs up from my kid testers!
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is available for the Nintendo Switch, the PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. Save $25 on the Starter Packs and save 30% on Starlink toys at Best Buy – this week, 12/16-12/22!
