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.

super fun!

Such a fun game! As a family we really enjoy playing it together. Lots of different characters to get and play with. 8+ because some characters have revealing clothing- not too big of a deal, but worth mentioning (so annoying that game developers even add that...). Overall lots of fun!! Definitely recommend it!

Appropriate and entertaining

For my kids 9 and 11 years old, it was a really fun game that kept them entertained on long trips and other journeys. It went really well with their recent purchase another set of joycons and when I looked at it seems to be appropriate.

Great messages
