5 Best Nintendo Switch Video Games You Should Play Right Now

Nintendo Switch is an amazing console and I personally love to play it on the go. The launch line-up of the games for Switch wasn’t the best. But now enough time has passed and it had gotten some amazing games with some phenomenal indie games too. Today we are counting down the best and most essential video games you should buy for your Nintendo Switch.


legend of zelda Breath OF tHE wiLD

This isn’t your typical boiler plate open world cash grab, rife with to-do lists and busywork. Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an evolution of the formula for both eastern and western philosophies alike, and a new blueprint. – Destructoid

The most freeform Zelda yet, without sacrificing the charm, fun or quality you expect from the series. Nintendo’s finest work since Super Mario Galaxy. – GamesRadar+

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is not just the best game in the franchise, it’s also manages to reinvent the open world genre. This will be remembered as a masterpiece for years to come. – M3



A world where people fight with ramen noodles, DNA, and snakes shouldn’t be this much fun. It may take a while to get the hang of the controls in Arms, but the wildly inventive characters, catchy theme music, and unique gameplay style offer enough to capture the attention of casual and competitive gamers alike. – EGM

Fighting titles have long been the most competitive and often hardest for new players to get into, but ARMS enters itself extremely well to the genre by feeling like nothing that has ever been played before. – Hardcore Gamer

Arms is a surprisingly balanced fighting game that mainly shines in it’s (online) multiplayer thanks to the huge variety in characters and boxing gear. Unfortunately, the single-player campaign offers few options. – Gamer.nl



Ubisoft has made a remarkable title that deserves the attention of each of every Nintendo Switch owner thus far. This game is not only a great surprise, but also one of the best games of the console. Deep in its game mechanics and affordable to everybody. – Meristation

Mario + Rabbids is tremendously fun, and a triumph for Ubisoft. Its easy accessibility and familiar characters make it perfect for younger players ready to move onto more challenging gaming experiences, but its consistent difficulty curve means it keeps the attention of more seasoned players. With tonnes of content to warrant returning long after the story is done, chalk this up as another great entry to the Switch’s burgeoning software library. – Wired UK



The improved single-player experience, the enhanced and multitude of online modes for all skill levels and Salmon Run which is just a ton of fun make Splatoon 2 the complete Switch game. The game’s style and charm are terrific and it runs at an amazing 1080p 60fps rock solid the entire time. With a year or more of updates promised and regular Splatfests planned, Splatoon 2 will among your most played games for a while to come. – Vooks

Splatoon 2 recaptures every moment of enjoyment of the original while finding room to add even more. Whether it’s the challenging single player or the revitalized multiplayer, Splatoon 2 does a phenomenal job at making itself more than a minor upgrade. – Hardcore Gamer

Splatoon 2 is exactly the same as the first game, which is disappointing. However, the gameplay and fresh style of Splatoon 2 make those feelings fade away quickly. It is so much fun to compete online. – InsideGamer.nl


Mario Kart 8 deluxe

The definitive version of one of the greatest multiplayer games ever, with a vast array of courses, characters, and the best Battle mode since the SNES days. – Metro GameCentral

It seems that Nintendo Switch was made for a game like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Racing is fun and multiplayer (8 local/12 online) is unbeatable. Nevertheless, the only improvements from the Wii U game are six new characters, new items and some battle modes, and that is not enough. – Hobby Consolas

The greatest game in the Mario Kart series is back, now under the name of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in a Nintendo Switch version that improves the original on several levels. If its large amount of content was not enough, the return of the battle mode as it was before and all the visual improvements bring the game up to today’s standards. – FNintendo
