Benny Kong Nintendo Switch May 2019

My Physical Additions to the Nintendo Switch Library in May 2019

Welcome to my May! As already introduced some weeks ago, I’m happy to bring the monthly series on my physical additions to the Nintendo Switch library to Benny Kong.

This month I have even another little addition: From now on, I’ll share with you my entire monthly pickups! Meaning, we will also have a look into the Wii U, Wii department and for sure, into my retro additions. Whatever I did get! For the time being, I’ll separate my Nintendo Switch pickups from the other Nintendo platform additions to underline my efforts in the #SwitchCorps community – but I’m also happy to change this in case you think it makes more sense to have a consolidated post.

Let me know in the comments section below what you prefer!


My Additions in the Month of May

During my very busy #Switchiversary, I already decided that the upcoming months have to slow down. For April my plan did work out. And for May? I think it did good too.

Two limited print games made it into my collection and I added an Asian release of a game, that you also can buy in the US or in Europe. But why did I import it from Asia? Because the Asian release offer two games on one card, whereas the NA/EU version just contain one game on the card, the other title needs to get downloaded digitally. Since I like to preserve my games in a physical form, I did opt for the Asia import here.

My very first Nintendo Switch addition in the month of May 2019 was actually a very special one:

I won a contest on Twitter and was so lucky to get a Best Buy x Limited Run Games Exclusive! I’ll cover this addition in my SwitchIns section in more detail soon, but would like to say thank again to the generous host of the contest, @TheWaffinator! Thanks for running this amazing raffle and sending the prize all the way to Germany! Having a winner in the US would have been a lot cheaper for The Waffinator, but he even choose an express shipping so that I did not have to wait any longer for this very special copy that found now its place on my shelf. And a special place in my heart! Thank you mate!

Now it’s time to have a look at some footage of my humble May additions:

April 2019 Additions

My Physical Additions to the Nintendo Switch Library in April 2019

Let’s bring the monthly series to Benny Kong! A quick recap and trip back down memory lane:

In January 2019, I joined my fellow #SwitchCorps and kicked off a monthly series to celebrate my latest additions to the Nintendo Switch collection in the respective month. We, the SwitchCorps community, had even special names for the first three months of 2019 in anticipation of the big day: Nintendo Switch’s 2nd anniversary on March 3, 2019.

These were the hashtags we used to tag our collections on social media:

So, What Did I Add in the Month of April?

During my very busy #Switchiversary, I already decided that #April had to be more quiet. And looking at my humble additions to the physical #Nintendo Switch collection, that grew now to #40 releases, my plan to slow down worked actually out. Considering the huge backlog and taking into account the way I play videogames – trying to complete a game to 100% -, investing not too much in games every month, is actually a good thing.

Interestingly, although having pre-ordered a bunch of limited games, in the month of April none of these made it into my monthly picture. That is actually a premiere since I started this little series in January 2019.

It’s great that the Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s first region-free platform (Thank you for this, Big N!), so I could import three releases from Asia last month as these titles are not physical available in my region.
