Accessible to all, Chess Ultra will undoubtedly please aficionados of the strategy game while marking the perfect entry point to those that have always wanted to learn how to play. With the chance for your Nintendo Switch to become a virtual chess board to play against someone across a table, the portable home console could also be seen as the perfect home for it.
Chess Ultra is a welcome arrival on the Nintendo Switch; it's a visual treat, while also soothing you with pleasant music as you engage in a tough match. There are plenty of options and variety for online and offline matches, with the former being particularly enjoyable if you're able to get into a real-time contest.
Chess is still chess, regardless of whether it is played online or in person. This has always been the hardest selling point, but the case made by Ripstone is a good one, in the end. Why worry about a physical board when you can trade it for a digital one? Chess Ultra is about as perfect of a digital recreation you can get; it’s visually appealing, provides numerous features to tailor-make your experience and at its heart, relies on few gimmicks to sell chess as a video game.
