With many people stuck at home because of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s no surprise that sales of game consoles have increased – or at least increased to the point where supply can no longer keep up with demand. Indeed, the standard Nintendo Switch seems to be sold out anywhere you look. Some of this is a disruption to the Nintendo supply chain because of the plague, but we certainly wouldn’t be surprised to learn that available stock has sold far faster than anticipated because various home stay orders were handed down by elected officials.
Whatever the reason, we suspect that there are quite a lot of new Switch owners out there, making this the right time to run some of the best games available for the Switch. If you are new to consoles, this is a game that you should consider buying first, but even experienced Switch veterans might find time to look at titles that they are ignoring for the first time.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
For many people, Breath of the Wild was the first game they bought, and rightly so that a reason to buy a Switch for about six months after the console was launched. There is a lot of hype going into release Breath of the Wild, and once the game finally arrives, it soon becomes clear that excitement is well guaranteed. Masterclass in building open world action / adventure games, Breath of the Wild take the well-known Zelda formula and change it with a head at one of the most successful reinventions we’ve ever seen. Breath of the Wild not just one of the best games on the Switch; it’s one of the best games of all time.
Super Mario Odyssey
We have to imagine that at some point, Nintendo will stumble even just a little with its main 3D line Mario series, but on Super Mario Odyssey, it still hasn’t happened. As Breath of the Wild, We give Super Mario Odyssey 10/10 score when we reviewed it in 2017 and found that there wasn’t much to criticize about this game. Like 3D Mario previous games – Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Galaxy special – Super Mario Odyssey is on the short list for the best 3D platformer ever made.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
If you want a game that you can really rub, Fire Emblem: Three Houses Is that. With a tactical battle of turns that forces you to consider the movement carefully, the action cannot be called fast paced by any imagination. However, let the hook come inside you, and you will find it Fire Emblem: Three Houses offers an immersive experience that is suitable for replayability. Together Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is one of the important Switch games.
Super Smash. Bros Ultimate
The famous Nintendo battle game series landed on Switch in a big way in 2018, with Masahiro Sakurai and his team at Sora Ltd. put each fighter off Smash brooch history of being Finally. The result is a list of characters that is almost close to 100 when the next DLC round is complete. Finally Make a list for an impressive list, but that’s the fact that is the best Smash brooch game since Super Smash Bros Melee in GameCube of course it helps. Be prepared to endure some slow matches if you decide to play online games, because sometimes playing bad online is the only flaw in this otherwise fantastic game.
The maker of Super Mario 2
Maybe we talk too fast when we say that Fire Emblem: Three Houses is an entry game if you want to submerge your teeth into something. In The maker of Super Mario 2, You really will never run out of content, because there are always other players who create and upload new levels for you to play. The content might not always be good – in fact, The maker of Super Mario 2 shows us how difficult level design really is – but there are certainly many. The results of everyone makes Super Mario level and upload them for others to play a game that can only be described as “beautiful madness.”
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Most of you newcomers may not even need this recommendation because Animal Crossing: New Horizons is likely to play a role in your decision to get the Switch in the first place. However, if you have not yet taken it, it is worth buying, if only because it offers a relaxed escape from the stresses and uncertainties of life during a pandemic. The only thing to remember New Horizon is that it’s definitely a type of slow burning game, meaning you won’t be able to stop development in just hours, days or even weeks.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Technically, Mario Kart 8 is a Wii U game, but accepts a “Deluxe” port to the Nintendo Switch. That’s good, because Mario Kart 8 could be the best this series has to offer, and if you miss it on Wii U, it’s worth switching. In this case, it might still be feasible to switch even though you already played the Wii U version just because it was very fun.
Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of a Age Hard to Achieve – Definitive Edition
If you like RPGs and don’t have problems with titles that are too long, change the port from Dragon Quest XI definitely worth seeing. It doesn’t matter if you’re a long-time fan of Dragon Quest or if Dragon Quest XI will be your first pioneer in the series, because it’s perfect for players from both backgrounds. This is a fantastic game with interesting stories that will last a long time, so for RPG fans, don’t be surprised if it ticks a lot of boxes.
Sonic the Hedgehog is a character that has had a few rough points over the past few decades. It seems since then Sonic & Knuckles at Genesis, the best Sonic is just fine (sorry) Sonic Adventure 2 fans, but it is true). That all changes with Sonic Mania, which is easily the best Sonic game since the Genesis era, and maybe the second after Sonic the Hedgehog 2. If you are a new Switch owner, Sonic Mania definitely deserves a place in your library, especially if you are a 2D platformer fan or you love Sonic game back in the day.
What’s with all Nintendo games?
You may notice that this list consists mostly of games made by Nintendo and its subsidiary studios. Nintendo games themselves are often the reason for owning a Nintendo system, but in the case of Switch, that does not mean there are no games from other studios that are worth trying.
Indeed, Switch really makes a good indie engine too, especially when it comes to roguelikes and other genres that are suitable for pick-up-and-play styles. Some indie titles that we think are perfect for Switch include Shovel Knight: Treasure, Dead cells, Kill the Spire, Stardew Valley, and Enter the Gungeon. This list can easily double or triple if we include all the great indie titles available on the Switch, so keep that in mind when you make a purchase decision.
