When it comes to portable gaming for use both at home and on the go, the Nintendo Switch is hard to beat.

That said, we’ve got you covered whether you’re more of a fan of major Nintendo exclusives, indie games, or the latest and greatest third-party games releasing on Switch.

To help you decide which games to play, we’ve compiled a list of the best Nintendo Switch games available, both old and new.

Please check back later for updates, and let us know if we forgot to include any of your favorite Switch games on this list.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus

With the Switch remakes of Diamond and Pearl scheduled for release in 2021, Pokemon Legends: Arceus is the next single-player RPG in the Pokemon series.

Taking inspiration from Japan in the nineteenth century, it transports players to an earlier time in Sinnoh’s history when it was still known as the Hisui region.

In the story, you’ll meet the legendary Pokemon Arceus after setting out on a quest to compile the first-ever Pokedex.

While gameplay is similar to previous entries in the series, Legends: Arceus adds new regional Pokemon variants, dynamic environments, and explorable areas.

Mario Party Superstars

The Mario Party series is one of the few that has stood the test of time and continues to delight players of all ages and backgrounds who enjoy Nintendo’s classic games.

Everyone, from Mario Party veterans who have witnessed countless friendships crumble to first-time players, will find something to enjoy in the latest installment, Mario Party Superstars.

The game expands upon the foundation laid by Super Mario Party for the Switch, while also paying homage to the series’ rich history by re-creating 100 fan-favorite minigames and 5 fan-favorite boards from the N64 Mario Party games.

Multiplayer is supported in both local and online settings, though the latter requires a Nintendo Switch Online membership.

WarioWare: Get It Together!

The WarioWare series is fantastic for a quick burst of minigame excitement, and Get It Together amps up the excitement by adding cooperative play.

Wario and his pals are trapped inside of his new video game console and must work together to find a way out.

This is portrayed in the game as a series of brief minigames where players must race against the clock to achieve a specific objective.

Microgames in Get It Together are, like those in previous games, meant to be easy to pick up and play again and again without losing any of their charm or novelty.

Monster Hunter Rise

In Monster Hunter Rise, Capcom makes a welcome return to the Nintendo platform with its action role-playing series.

You and your new canine pals, called “Palamutes,” will be fighting gigantic monsters using a wide variety of weapons, tools, and environmental traps, much like in the previous games in the series.

It expands on the seamless map design of MH World by letting players scale cliffs and climb structures with Wirebugs, and it also features the game’s signature bullet time mechanic.

This year, around the middle of 2022, Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, an expansion to the main game, will be released for Switch.

Bravely Default II

The Bravely series is one of the best Japanese role-playing games (JRPGs) available on the Switch.

There is no continuity between Bravely Default II and its predecessors, Bravely Default or Bravely Second: End Layer.

The game’s main focus is on difficult turn-based battles that use a “Brave Point” system, like in previous entries.

To further customize their characters and unlock potent new synergies, players can collect various “asterisks” throughout the game.

Super Mario 3D World Bowser’s Fury

Since the Switch’s release, Nintendo has been hard at work porting games from the Wii U and 3DS to the system, the most recent of which is Super Mario 3D World Bowser’s Fury.

When Bowser invaded the Sprixie Kingdom in the original Wii U game, Mario and his friends went in search of the adorable creatures to save them.

With the addition of a character selector and the new Super Bell power-up, which transforms the player into a cat who can climb on walls and scratch enemies, the gameplay is very similar to previous Super Mario games.

The base game and a new, standalone story featuring Mario and Bowser Jr. working together to take down Fury Bowser and save Lake Lapcat are both included in the Switch port.

Paper Mario: The Origami King

The Paper Mario RPG subseries has had its ups and downs over the years, but in 2020, with the release of The Origami King for the Switch, the series will be back and better than ever.

The protagonist, Mario, is transformed into paper and must stop the evil king from folding the Mushroom Kingdom into origami and turning its citizens into evil minions.

The game features a number of firsts for the series, such as a reworked combat system in which players rotate rings on a radial battlefield to increase Mario’s damage output.

Since The Origami King has been praised by critics and has become the series’ fastest-selling entry, we can expect to see more Paper Mario games from Nintendo in the future.

The original Link’s Awakening was released for the Game Boy, but this Switch remake improves upon the gameplay, controls, and visuals of the original.

It’s also very different from other Zelda games because it takes place outside of Hyrule and doesn’t involve the Triforce or even Princess Zelda.

Similar to the original, Link must collect eight magical instruments in order to awaken the legendary Wind Fish in this remake.

The remake’s shiny, plasticine aesthetic may turn off some fans of the original game, but the new in-game dungeon creator makes it worthwhile for any Zelda fan.

New Pokemon Snap

The new Pokemon Snap game does a fantastic job of simulating a safari by allowing players to explore and photograph Pokemon in their native environments.

Replaying levels you enjoyed most is highly recommended so that you can find all of the hidden goodies and nods to the N64 classic that you may have missed the first time around.

Extra game mechanics, like a point system that rewards you for snapping multiple Pokemon or catching them in action, add to the fun of pretending to be a photographer on a quest.

Any Pokemon fan or Switch owner in search of fresh challenges should check it out.

Pac-Man 99

Even though we still can’t get over the fact that Super Mario Bros. 35 is no longer available on Nintendo Switch Online, we can take solace in the fact that its replacement is just as good.

Keeping the series’ signature maze-chase gameplay while adding some spice by making ghosts human, Pac-Man 99 is a battle royale take on the classic. Jammer Pac-Man are consumed by Pac-Man when he is sent to them.

Targeting players and slowing them down when hit, Jammer Pac-Man is vulnerable to elimination by the Red Jammer Pac-Man.

If you liked Tetris 99 or Super Mario Bros. 35, you’ll really enjoy this new take on the classic game of Pac-Man.


Supergiant is among the industry’s finest independent studios, having released such classics as Bastion, Transistor, Pyre, and most recently, Hades.

Hades, like many of the developer’s other games, uses strong characters and nuanced combat to breathe new life into a tried-and-true genre (roguelike dungeon-crawling).

It has you playing the role of Zagreus, son of Hades, who is trying to flee the underworld while being chased by gods.

Each run involves navigating a different map with its own unique set of challenges and potential benefits.

Metroid Dread

Dread was originally conceived by Metroid producer Yoshio Sakamoto for the Nintendo DS in the middle of the 2000s, but was shelved due to technical limitations at the time.

Players take on the role of Samus Aran once more as she investigates a strange transmission on Planet ZDR, only to find that it is a trap.

Players will have to either hunt or be hunted as they make their way through a vast network of tunnels on a distant planet overrun by vicious aliens and bloodthirsty robots known as E.M.M.I.

The Switch exclusive keeps the side-scrolling gameplay of the original 2D Metroid games while adding in new stealth mechanics.

Mario Tennis Aces

In my experience, Mario sports games never fail to deliver a fun and welcoming gameplay environment that gamers of all skill levels can enjoy.

Like its predecessors, Mario Tennis Aces features intuitive controls, mechanics that are both fun and challenging to master, and a wealth of single- and multiplayer-focused game modes.

Both traditional single- and doubles-player matches, as well as the new Adventure mode’s missions and bosses, are included.

Mario Tennis Aces is an exclusive for the Nintendo Switch that features motion controls and HD rumble for a more interactive and realistic tennis experience.

Mario Golf: Super Rush

If baseball isn’t your thing, or if you just can’t get enough Mario sports games, you should check out the new Mario Golf: Super Rush for Switch.

This is the sixth entry in the Mario Golf series, and it features a large cast of returning characters playing golf in a number of different game types.

Super Rush now features Speed Golf, a new game mode in which players compete to finish courses as quickly as possible rather than using the fewest possible number of strokes.

The game accepts input from both buttons and motion controls to make it feel like you’re actually playing golf, much like Mario Tennis Aces does with tennis.

Luigi’s Mansion 3

In the third entry, titled simply “Luigi’s Mansion 3,” Mario’s lanky and neurotic younger brother investigates a haunted hotel after his pals vanish.

When dealing with the supernatural, Luigi always puts on his Poltergust gadget, which has been upgraded thanks to Professor E. Gadd.

As a result, Luigi learns how to catch ghosts and solve puzzles by guiding Gooigi, an ethereal double of himself who can pass through walls of solid metal and vanish in liquids.

The unexpected inclusion of local co-op and online multiplayer modes is a great way to extend the game’s replay value beyond the single-player campaign.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Even though Nintendo has been making Animal Crossing games for a long time, they really hit a home run with 2020’s Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Switch.

The series has always put an emphasis on personalization, allowing players to decorate their town and populate it with a variety of animal villagers with distinct personalities.

In New Horizons, the tried-and-true formula is elevated by the addition of a crafting system and the freedom to change the look of your island at any time by constructing roads, rivers, and cliffs.

Even though there are a lot of new things to keep track of, animals to befriend, and debts to repay, it’s best to take things slowly and methodically, day by day.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Although Breath of the Wild is compatible with the Wii U, it was released in conjunction with the Switch and has sold more copies of the console than the console itself.

Players needed no convincing to pick up BOTW, thanks to its portability and nostalgic nods to classic Zelda gameplay.

Some of the new features, such as the ability to cook and increase the durability of your weapons, are great additions that up the difficulty and strategic depth.

Finally, BOTW has the largest and most detailed world of any game in the series, complete with a plethora of secrets and locations to uncover.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Since Nintendo’s history with its fanbases, including Smash players, has been rocky, the company made sure to pull out all the stops for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The final product is an exciting arena fighter featuring a cast that reads like a who’s who of Nintendo’s first-party mascots, plus a few special guests.

The rules can be modified to suit the skill level of the players, making this a highly versatile game.

You can test your mettle in competitive matches that put your skills to the test to the fullest extent, or you can engage in chaotic four-player battles complete with environmental hazards, game-breaking items, and power-ups.

Super Mario Maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2 expands upon its illustrious forerunner’s features and refinements to existing ones.

With the new slope and scrolling tools, players have greater leeway in their level design.

The sequel also adds many new block varieties and themes, such as the ability to design levels in the style of Super Mario 3D World.

SMM2 has something for every kind of Mario fan, whether they consider themselves “Makers” or just like to check out what others have made.

Super Mario Odyssey

You get a brand new adventure across 16 worlds filled with coins and collectibles, new outfits for Mario, and more in Super Mario Odyssey, the ultimate 3D Mario game.

With a wide variety of jumps and tricks at his disposal, Mario is able to take on some incredible platforming challenges, and the game feels like a throwback to the days of Super Mario 64.

That isn’t to say it rests on its laurels, though; Cappy grants Mario new abilities like possessing non-living objects and other living creatures.

This increases the depth of strategy required to complete Odyssey’s world-hopping, combat, and puzzle-solving missions.

Mario Rabbids Kingdom Battle

It might not sound like a good idea on paper, but combining Super Mario from Nintendo and Raving Rabbits from Ubisoft actually works quite well.

The Mushroom Kingdom has been thrown into chaos, and Mario Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a tactical role-playing game in the vein of XCOM.

During gameplay, you’ll choose three characters, any three of which can be Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Yoshi, or one of the four Rabbids dressed as them.

The Rabbids are a welcome addition that helps lighten the mood in what is otherwise a surprisingly challenging strategy game with a deep battle system.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Another game with its origins in the Wii U can be found in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which comes with a number of extras and downloadable content released after the game’s initial release.

The original cast has been augmented with characters like Bowser Jr., Dry Bones, King Boo, Gold Mario, and male and female Inklings from the Splatoon series.

Not only do Boos and Super Mario Kart Feathers make a comeback as collectibles, but the Battle Mode has been reworked in response to player feedback about its performance in the first game.

You’re free to play Mortal Kombat 8 on Wii U if you can track it down, but the Switch version has enough advantages to make it worth your while to make the switch.

Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics

Clubhouse Games is a veritable treasury of traditional board, card, and sporting games, containing dozens of titles you may have played as a kid and others you may have never heard of. Clubhouse Games has a huge variety of fun multiplayer games for only $40, including classics like chess, checkers, poker, and air hockey as well as international favorites like Mahjong and Shogi. You can play golf and bowling games that are surprisingly good, generic versions of classics like Connect Four, Uno, and Rock ’em Sock ’em robots, and a whole lot more.

No More Heroes 3

The newest game from Suda51 continues to showcase his unique ability to create bizarre and stylish video games. In this sequel, you play as the assassin Travis Touchdown once more, only this time you have to fight off a slew of alien invaders. The story progresses from the previous two games, but newcomers won’t feel lost thanks to plentiful explanations.

A lot of people will be turned off by the game’s idiosyncratic gameplay and heavy reliance on pop culture references, so it’s not one you should pick up on a whim. It’s still interesting to check out because, in comparison to other stagnant genres, the creators put a lot of original thought into this work.

Streets of Rage 4

Streets of Rage 4 is a triumphant return for the classic Sega beat-em-up series, retaining the fun, nostalgic gameplay of the original games while expertly updating it for a new audience. Up to four players locally or two online can punch and kick their way through Wood Oak City as fan favorites like Axel and Blaze and newcomers Cherry and Flloyd.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl

Whether you’re just getting into Pokémon or want to relive your first time through, the remakes of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are a great way to dive into the fourth generation.

Unlike the previous remakes Nintendo has published, which can be argued for both sides, this one sticks very closely to the originals. Catching and fighting the game’s namesake unique creatures is a tried-and-true formula that has stood the test of time.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

Fan service at its finest, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 lets you and up to three friends battle it out as your favorite Marvel heroes, using hack and slash attacks to dispatch waves of enemies. The game features 36 playable characters, including fan favorites like Wolverine and Iron Man and lesser-known characters like Spider-Gwen, Elsa Bloodstone, and Ms. Marvel, who can be combined in a wide variety of ways to perform synergy attacks and receive team bonuses as you fight to prevent Thanos from obtaining the Infinity Stones.

Monster Hunter Rise

You begin as a regular guy from the village who has been recruited by the hunters’ guild. However, it soon becomes obvious that you’ll be getting more than you bargained for when warning signs of a new “Rampage” start to appear.

If you enjoy hunting monsters and leveling up with the items you find when you kill them, this best Switch games member is for you. In MH:R, however, you can now ride and control other monsters while fighting them via wirebugs, giving you new options for rapid movement and quickly turning the tables on your quarry. You and your animal friends can go on solo adventures or team up with other human players online to take on the game’s largest and deadliest predators.

Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11 on Switch is a full AAA brawler experience you can play on the go, and it’s a testament to the Switch’s growth as a fighting game machine over the past few years. With a deep cinematic story mode, multiple online game modes, and a huge roster that includes fan favorites like Scorpion and Sub-Zero as well as newcomers like Spawn and The Terminator, Mortal Kombat 11 is packed to the gills with content.

Astral Chain

If you’re looking for an original and rewarding action game on the Switch, look no further than Astral Chain. Taking Platinum Games’ signature brand of stylish combat and giving it a futuristic anime spin, this adventure lets you create all sorts of crazy combos by controlling your main character and an array of humanoid Legion companions simultaneously. With a thumping techno-meets-metal soundtrack and some of the best visuals of any Switch game, Astral Chain’s vibrant sci-fi world comes to life beyond the game’s supremely satisfying fighting.

Pokémon Sword and Shield

In addition to introducing significant changes to Game Freak’s cherished RPG formula, Pokémon Sword and Shield feature all of the addicting monster catching, battling, and exploring that makes the series great. Open-world Wild Areas teeming with wild Pokémon present a serious challenge to even the most seasoned trainers in the game’s Britain-inspired Galar region.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

This Legend of Zelda game takes us back in time before everything went to hell in Breath of the Wild, another excellent Switch game. In this game, you won’t just be able to play as Link as he explores and fights Calamity Ganon’s massive armies on his own. With the help of your allies and a cooperative partner, you’ll have to fight your way across Hyrule’s many battlefields, using your unique abilities to stomp through hordes of enemies and accomplish mission-specific goals.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition

The Switch version of one of the most critically acclaimed RPGs of the current generation (and possibly all time) is now available. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition includes everything from CD Projekt Red’s massive open world adventure, as well as all previously released downloadable content (including the highly regarded Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine add-ons). The Switch port of The Witcher 3 may be lacking in visual polish, but it still features the expansive world, compelling story with branching narratives, and rewarding combat that made Geralt of Rivia’s third adventure stand out. If you’re not a fan of Nintendo’s typical kid-friendly games, this is one of the best Switch games you can play.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition

The popular beat ’em up video game, based on the comic book and film of the same name, has been out of print for over six years, but is now available once more.

Like in the show, you have to stop Scott from having to deal with Ramona Flowers’ seven bad ex-boyfriends. In addition to Ramona, Kim, Stephen, and Scott, you can also play as Wallace Wells and Knives Chau thanks to the downloadable content packs included in this Complete Edition.

Heaven’s Vault

In Heaven’s Vault, you play as archaeologist El, tasked with deciphering an ancient language as you discover relics across the moons of The Nebula. The freedom you have as a player, both to explore and to translate, is what makes this game so great and makes it stand out among the other Switch titles. As you make choices, the story unfolds in a variety of ways, from altering your interactions with the other characters to determining the story’s final resolution.

Untitled Goose Game

There is a distant honking coming from the gaming hills. Untitled Goose Game, which puts players in the webbed feet of a despicable goose out to ruin the days of everyone in a quaint little suburb, quickly rose to the top of the internet’s best Nintendo Switch games picks thanks to its unique blend of stealth gameplay and prankster heaven. The game’s incredibly intuitive controls give the impression that it’ll be easy, but the difficulty quickly rises to make this cutesy puzzler a genuine test of skill.

Knockout City

If you enjoy dodgeball but long for some added advantages, this Switch title is an excellent choice. There is a demo version of the game available for download so that you can try it before you buy it.

The goal, as in the original, is to use dodgeballs you find strewn about one of the game’s many maps to hit other players while avoiding their attacks and any hazards you might encounter. Launch yourself or your teammates as a ball for a sneak attack, or use special abilities like explosives, anti-gravity, or traps to improve your throws. Considering the game’s focus on multiplayer, it comes as no surprise that there are a ton of unlockable accessories for you to customize your character with. This makes the game a fun alternative to the typical multiplayer obsessions, such as battle royale or first-person shooters.

Tetris 99

Now even Tetris is getting in on the action with its own take on the battle royale genre. In Tetris 99, you and 99 other players compete against each other in real time by clearing lines and sending blocks to their opponents’ play areas. You can attack specific players or let the AI choose who gets flooded with blocks as you desperately clear spaces, revealing a surprising amount of strategy. More importantly, though, Tetris 99 is just a fast-paced, enjoyable version of the classic game, and before you know it, you’ll find yourself telling yourself you’ll play just one more game before bed. While Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can play Tetris 99 for free, anyone can buy the Big Block DLC for $10 to unlock offline play and additional game modes.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

Nintendo did more than just give the Wii port of Skyward Sword HD a facelift for the Switch release. The game’s controversial motion controls can now be disabled entirely, making it more consistent and accessible to a wider audience.

Story-wise, it may not hold a candle to the recent smash hit Breath of the Wild, but it’s still a fun look at the beginning of the Legend of Zelda timeline, complete with engaging personalities, challenging dungeons, and an open sky. It’s a great option for first-time players and veterans who want to experience the game in its improved form.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Among the many titles in Nintendo’s acclaimed role-playing series, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is among the largest and most comprehensive. The series’ addictive and deeply strategic tactical combat returns in Three Houses, with a new twist: you take on the role of a professor, tasked with leading students from one of three distinct academic houses. Three Houses is one of the best games available for the Switch thanks to its memorable characters, massive battles, and the first free-roaming hub world in the series.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Trailer di lancio (Nintendo Switch) - YouTube

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is a relaxing farming simulator with such a simplistic appearance that you’ll be baffled that you’ve already lost three hours to it. In this chill role-playing game, you are tasked with transforming a barren field into a bustling farm, complete with colorful characters, gorgeous pixel art, and a wide variety of entertaining pursuits. Whether you’re carefully tending crops for a big payday or exploring the mysterious mines, it’s easy to get completely lost in Stardew Valley’s 16-bit world, populated by charming and memorable townspeople. The game is even more fun when played with others, and a recent update made that possible.

Subnautica: Below Zero

The next game in this survival series is set in a much colder environment, and it takes place on the water. The new frozen biomes are aesthetically pleasing and breathe new life into the game’s compelling scavenging/building loop.

The dangers in this sequel are not limited to the surface of the water, as in the original. As you progress through the technology tree and acquire better weapons, armor, and transportation, you will begin to feel more in control of your surroundings. While the main objective is to stay alive, players can switch to a more relaxed “Freedom mode” to explore the environment.

Luigi’s Mansion 3

Luigi’s Mansion 3 doesn’t stink, despite its premise of using a vacuum to track down ghosts. The latest entry in Nintendo’s spooky ghostbusting series is one of the best games available for the Switch, providing a toolbox of new specter-slaying tools to play with as you explore a mazelike hotel that has become King Boo’s latest haunted mansion. Gooigi, a goopy spectral double of Luigi, allows you to play as two characters at once while solving some of the most satisfying environmental puzzles in the series. The actual ghost-busting is a lot of fun as well, thanks to some new combat moves like a satisfying ground slam and a wealth of memorable, challenging boss fights. Luigi’s Mansion 3 is an excellent choice if you want a light, humorous adventure game that also has a lot of personality and wit.


Finally available on Nintendo Switch, one of the best platformers of the past decade is just as enjoyable, visually stunning, and punishingly difficult as ever. Cuphead combines a tight, extremely challenging bullet-hell 2D sidescrolling experience with a delightful jazz soundtrack and hand-drawn 1930s-inspired artwork that looks like it was taken straight from a classic Disney cartoon. What you get is a game with punishing difficulty that, thanks to its compelling visuals and satisfying shoot-em-up gameplay, you’ll feel compelled to see through to the end. Whether you’re taking on the Devil and his minions in local co-op with a friend or taking down a few bosses on the go, Studio MDHR’s indie masterpiece feels right at home on Switch.


Despite the fact that the Switch is home to a plethora of great indie platformers, Celeste is easily in the top 5 best games for the system. Screen after screen of precise platforming challenges await you in this pixelated, ultra-tight 2D sidescroller. Use your jump, dash, and wallgrab to avoid spikes, pits, and all manner of spooky spectres. Weaving together the unforgettable 2D action of Celeste with a heartfelt and cleverly told story about coping with mental illness and a synth soundtrack that shifts between serene and haunting, the whole package is wrapped in an unforgettable synth soundtrack. Celeste is a must-have for anyone with a Switch.

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is awesome because it’s more Splatoon. The Switch version of Nintendo’s colorful online shooter features new weapons and abilities that make it possible to dual-wield pistols, fire barrages of rockets, and perform powerful-ground pounds as you race to cover the battlefield in colorful ink. The main campaign is a fantastically bizarre platformer, and the new Salmon Run mode is a formidable cooperative test for you and up to three friends. Moreover, it is a delight to the senses both visually and aurally.


Is Nintendo discontinuing the switch?

The option to flip the switch off will not be removed at any time. Sure enough, production of the original Nintendo Switch, which hit shelves in 2017, was halted in August of this year. However, in the same month, Nintendo released a new version of the Switch that is more energy efficient and has a battery life that is, on average, an hour longer.

The ability to personalize one’s own island is another factor that could explain the game’s sudden success. Animal Crossing is an example of a game that encourages originality by letting players personalize and embellish their own island in any way they see fit. The presence of this trait coincides with the widespread desire for psychological solace in the world today.

Will there be a Switch 2?

When the next Nintendo Switch might come out

Reportedly, developers are already using Switch 2 development kits, with the console’s release window set for sometime between late 2022 and early 2023. Our advice is to take everything with a grain of salt. On the other hand, you can’t have smoke if there’s no fire.
