Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular Nintendo consoles in recent times, with the height of the Wii console in the ’00s and then met with lacklustre sales and momentum with the follow-up Wii U. Nintendo Switch changed that and has been steadily growing since its launch. Now, you have the option of the original Nintendo Switch with the detachable hand grips on the side of a large screen, or the Switch Lite, which has the same form factor without the detachable hand grips, but also comes with different colours to choose from. This article is a small aggregation of some of the top games on the Switch, some new and some older!
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
This was one of the original big games to launch on the Switch and did so well it actually sold more copies than Nintendo sold Switches, which is crazy to wrap your head around but that’s what the sales numbers say! Legend of Zelda, is a single-player adventure game, with amazing scenery and different locations throughout the game. You will not be bored, with over 100 different trials and mini-games inside the title, this is one of the highlights of the Nintendo Switch even after several years of release.
This is a nice, nostalgic game, which deserves credit as one of the top games on Nintendo Switch. It does what it says on the tin, it is a cool little boxing game where a pair of boxers fight it out until a player wins. It is single and multiplayer, so you can join in with your friends! The graphics are a modern adaptation of some classic arcade games, which is the primary reason the game has a really nostalgic feeling throughout. You create your own boxer from scratch, with many different hairstyles, body types, skin tones and more, so the characters are entirely personalized. If you are looking for a really cool little game, then this is a sure winner!
Luigi’s Mansion 3
Who doesn’t love the classic characters of Mario and Luigi? Well normally, it is Luigi’s friend, Mario who takes centre stage, but in this game, it is Luigi’s turn. Mario and his friends become missing inside a huge hotel named ‘The Last Resort Hotel’. The game consists of Luigi have to battle ghosts and all sorts of strange ghostly apparitions, whilst he is on the hunt to find his friends again. Finally reuniting with Mario and the others (or will he?). The game can support up to eight players, so be rest assured you and all of your friends can join in this fun adventure!
This game, just like the others in the Mario and Luigi universe, is certainly a family-friendly and fun interactive, a collaborative game that will have you on edge, and has the fun that these games are famous for having.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Luigi had his time to shine, how it is back to Mario, and another game that is a sure winner on the Switch is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Mario Kart has been a certified family favourite for a long time, on its traditional console form, and recently now on iOS and Android now too. Deluxe 8 does not stray far from the traditional format, but it is perfectly suited and perfectly calibrated to work with the Switch controls wonderfully and just like the game above, has the same tenacity and fun that Mario and Luigi are famous for!
Last but not lost, is a game called Rocket League. It is similar to that of Mario Kart, the main difference being it is more focused on real-life racing. It is an arcade game, with the Mario Kart similarities being the controls. The graphics of the game are impressive and has something to please everyone. You can play in career mode, and actively try to win races and make your way through the game and the different levels. Or, you have the option of online modes, with different seasonal games that come and go, to racing with real-life players around the world in online arenas. Just like Luigi’s Mansion, this game can also support a staggering eight players, so the whole family can join in the motor car racing fun!
