The Nintendo Switch is an awesome console, there’s no denying that. However, the game catalogue for the Switch is still leaving much to be desired. There are many great games coming soon for the Switch later this year, but until then, here are the top 10 Nintendo Switch Games that you can buy right now!
10. Cave Story +
Cave Story + is an indie platformer that’s been around for some time and has now made its way to the Nintendo Switch. You wake up in a cave and it’s your job to take down an evil doctor. Whilst tackling this mission you take on hundreds of enemies all whilst upgrading your weapons as you progress through the game. It’s a simple concept and yet is incredibly enjoyable. Multiple endings give this game excellent replay value. If you enjoy platformers, this is a great choice.
9. Fast RMX
Fast RMX is a futuristic anti-gravity racing game that is much like the popular Wipeout series. There are 30 different races that range from deserts and jungles to huge neon lit cities. It’s incredibly fast paced and is superbly fun. It also offers a varied array of ways to play: solo offline, split screen, local multiplayer with other Switches and Online. If you’re a fan of racing games, this title is definitely worth a look.
8. The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+
The Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a challenging and yet fun addition to the ever popular game series. You make your way through a large number of dungeons taking on enemies and picking up fun and random items along the way. With over 600 different items and 180 enemy types, there’s no chance of getting bored playing this game. Shoot’em up games are nothing new but this game puts a totally different spin on the genre that’s compelling and enjoyable.
7. Shovel Night: Treasure Trove
Shovel Night: Treasure Trove is the most complete and enjoyable platformer for the Nintendo Switch. It’s an action packed 2D platformer which combines excellent gameplay with likeable characters. You take on epic battles and compelling quests in this superb story driven game. Whether you’re playing solo or in co-op mode, you’re guaranteed to have a good time!
Thumper is one of the most fast paced and intense games that’s available for the Nintendo Switch. It’s a rhythm based game in which you play as a beetle speeding its way along a track. You’re constantly avoiding obstacles by pressing a variation of button combinations until you eventually reach one of the tough and graphically epic boss fights. It’s fast, challenging and insanely fun.
5. Snipper Clips
Snipper Clips is definitely a game that’s best played with a friend. You cut your character into different shapes in order to complete different levels. It starts off fairly easy, however, it quickly gets more challenging as you take on some of the harder levels. Playing on your own is fun, but giving a joy con to someone else definitely makes the game more enjoyable. It’s a fun, cute and unique puzzle game that makes great use of the joy con controllers for multiplayer.
Arms is a completely new take on the fighting genre. It’s one of the most physical games available on the Switch, although it can be played without having to move if you’re playing in a car for example. It offers a varied range of game modes, from a one vs one boxing match to a volley ball style game. Unlike normal boxing, your arms are spring like, so you can still punch your opponent even when they are 20 meters away from you. Arms is an enjoyable Nintendo Switch game which takes advantage of the motion controls better than any other title for the Switch.
Minecraft has made its way to the Switch! This is essentially a portable version of the popular console version found on the PS4 and Xbox One. Included with this version of Minecraft, you get a custom Mario map which is fun to explore and is exclusive to the Switch. There may not be much new here compared to other console versions, however, its portability factor makes this game a must for Minecraft lovers.
2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best version of the infamous racing game to date. It’s expanded upon the Wii U version with new game modes, characters and maps. The graphics look gorgeous whilst retaining a locked 60fps. The racing is as fun and competitive as ever, whether you’re playing offline and with other players online. When you’re finished racing, you can try out one of the many battle modes which are equally as enjoyable. There’s no doubt that you get your money’s worth with this classic title.
1. The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is not just in the top 10 Nintendo Switch games list, it’s also in my top ten games list of all games… it’s that good! You play as Lync in a huge expansive world that you are free to explore right from the start. The story is gripping and the enemies are challenging. You feel a sense of achievement when you take down a powerful foe or complete a challenging mission. The weapons are varied as are the enemies that you come across during your time with the game. The main campaign can easily last 50+ hours if you take on some of the many side missions along the way. Breath Of The Wild is a fun, polished and rewarding RPG that you will no doubt enjoy and is worth every penny.
