505 Games have launched Portal Knights on PS4, Xbox One, Steam, and Nintendo Switch and now on iOS and Google Play. Well, my daughter had the chance to play the game on the Switch over the past few days and came up with quite the statement: Portal Nights is better than Zelda: Breath of the Wild. And while I may not necessarily agree, I wouldn’t want to silence her voice…
