Nintendo Switch Lite handheld gaming console contest feature imageNintendo produces some of the most sought after gaming tech … and has done so for decades. Their appeal crosses all types of gamers, and all generations. Surprisingly, their ubiquity in the handheld gaming area has lasted forty years! From the early Game and Watch to the insanely popular Nintendo Switch Lite, Nintendo keep innovating with new tech and new games that keep resonating for decades to come. Read on to learn how to enter for a chance to win the latest chapter in the history of gaming, a Nintendo Switch Lite.

Mario and Monster Hunter live on with the Nintendo Switch Lite

I find it amazing that Mario is still a stalwart companion for all Nintendo gamers. Everyone loves him. In fact, there are many articles and social threads where people argue about who is more popular: Mario or Mickey! Nintendo has a bevy of familiar characters that have a long history—and, that have become part of our own personal histories.

Monster Hunter Rise game for Nintendo Switch

I have many wonderful memories of my children playing Mario Kart with their grandparents for hours and hours. It was almost impossible to get a turn for myself!

And Nintendo keeps producing games to join the ranks of our favourites. The newest one will launch near the end of this month: Monster Hunter Rise. This action role playing game (RPG) will bring on those feelings of familiarity for veterans of the Monster Hunter series, but offer exciting new characters and surprises to thrill everyone. Note: as with all popular new releases, you should pre-order it since they all tend to sell out by launch day or soon thereafter.

How will Monster Hunter Rise rank in your personal Nintendo library

Okay, so I know you can’t answer that question until you play the game, and you can’t play the game until you have it, and at the time this contest launched Monster Hunter Rise was still only available for pre-order. But humour me and think about it and speculate: do you think Monster Hunter Rise will become your new favourite Nintendo game. Then, enter this contest for a chance to win this great prize. The Best Buy Canada marketing team used this Nintendo Switch Lite in a display for a couple weeks a while back. They then asked me if I wanted to give it away to a blog reader. So, now you have a chance to win it!

  2. My all time favourite Nintendo game would have to be for the 64, 007 golden eye. I spent so many hours playing that game with friends and on my own.

  3. Probably way too late in the draw pile but what the hey might as well still try.
    It’s hard to pick just one favorite Nintendo game but I think I’d have to say Mario Kart as it’s great with friends, family or solo.

  4. Like everyone else I’m going to say Mario Kart. I have happy memories playing with my friends in middle school.

  5. Super Mario – Regardless of the number of decades that has passed playing this game the first time; it is always fun and challenging
