Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great for kids since it encourages them to do physical exercise.

This game is good. The quality, good. The experience, nice. And gameplay, 10. Although the chambara includes a sword, if made out of foam, and does not kill or hurt an avatar. No blood, it’s a Nintendo game, what else could you expect? Anyways, this gameplay is really nice, as said. But one thing does make me angry when I play it. (yes, I play it too. Nothing wrong with that, right?) When playing online, with the subscription, and on chambara, the only thing I hate is people swinging the Joy-con around like crazy. I see people actually winning like this, but luckily, I call myself the ‘chambara boss’ for some stupid reason. I found a technique, where you can just block up (for example), and then when you can see when they hit, you turn the sword blocking left. And when they do it twice, they think you are going to do it again, and they swing left, your sword should stay blocking up. That what’s pretty long, but as said, the graphics are amazing, the teamwork in some games are also good.
