When everything comes together though, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido is a really fun game. Playing it felt like a mix between watching an over-the-top anime and playing an advanced match-three puzzle game. The voice acting in itself was enough to keep me going back to it, let alone the ever-changing puzzles, fun and hilarious characters, delicious-looking sushi and adorable sprites.
Sushi Striker has an intimidating learning curve (if you don’t have someone on hand to walk you through it), but when you find your stride, maintaining it is satisfying. Accuracy using the controller is an issue, but it is an occasional annoyance as opposed to consistent frustration. Watching your level and your Sprites grow as you match sushi plates is exciting, and the charming world is like the little bit of gari at the edge of your sushi plate.
Even though its online multiplayer isn’t perfect, and the Switch version specifically can occasionally suffer from a lack of precision when using a controller, Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido wound up being one of the most original and entertaining puzzle games I have played in years. It exudes the quirk and charm typically associated with some of Nintendo’s most popular IPs, so I hope this isn’t the last we see of Sushi Striker and its adorably odd world.
