Sushi Striker is a delightful game that launched at an awful time

The Nintendo Switch has a big six months ahead of it, and that period was kicked off by the release of Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido earlier in the month. Co-developed by Nintendo EPD and indieszero, Sushi Striker definitely isn't the first-party fare we've come to expect from Nintendo over the years, but that didn't stop it from turning some heads when it was revealed back at E3 2017. Sushi Striker is every bit as good as those pre-launch trailers suggested it would be, but the problem is that it launched at a really bad time, especially considering that it's the first game in a new franchise.
