Best Indie Nintendo Switch Games

Nintendo Switch is if not the most successful gaming console Nintendo has ever made. People really love the nature of the console and how it transforms into portable and home console in just minutes.

Even though Switch is more powerful than PS3 and Xbox 360 it still has not gotten that many AAA games but when it comes to indies. The switch has absolutely killed it!

Golf Story is a smashing success and does so much more than it needs to. While the game would have been well received simply for its golfing aspect, Sidebar Games has built a great narrative and world around it. – COGconnected
I was already hooked by the idea of a golfing game with an overworld, side quests, stats, and leveling, but it wound up being so much more than that. The fact it’s not trying to be a sim makes it so approachable, and I have no problem suggesting this to people who don’t even like golf. Technical issues notwithstanding, Golf Story is an unexpected and excellent addition to the Switch’s eShop lineup. – DarkStation
Golf Story is well worth the addition to every Switch owner’s library. Its zany cast, easy-to-grasp gameplay, and wonderful art design make for an incredibly rewarding experience. – RPG Fan

The wait was worth it for this puzzle mashup, as Puyo Puyo Tetris embodies everything great about its namesakes, and compliments the host hardware perfectly. Concerns arise about the lack of Japanese voice work as an option, but as an overall package of content and pure replayability there are few better crossovers than this one. – Cubed3
The beautifully presented Puyo Puyo Tetris has a ton of content, a really fun multiplayer with a lot of variations, and is very easy to pick up and play with just about anyone despite the slight balance issues. The Nintendo Switch is a great platform for it too, with its portability and non-threatening Joy-Con controllers. This is the type of game that offers an adequate challenge for even the most hardcore puzzle players with its Challenge modes, but is inviting for even the smallest of children and gaming newbies. – IGN



It uses the upgraded visuals of previous ports, and does feature multiple soundtrack options, but outside of that it’s essentially Cave Story as you remember it. Of course that is still a positive thing, but as someone who has played through the game a few times, I’d only suggest it to fans if you’re either dying to play some more Cave Story, or looking to scratch a Metroidvania itch on the Nintendo Switch. – Gaming Age
Cave Story+ may have already been around in other formats before but it’s such a delightful game to play that it’s still recommended to everyone, this time with the added bonus of including all the soundtracks of the game’s previous versions. Its finely designed difficulty curve will set everyone on their course and the magnificent boss fights only make this even more of a timeless classic. – FNintendo
Cave Story+ is an absolute blast of a game. It’s addicting, it’s entertaining, and the multiple endings will keep you playing time and time again. It’s one of the Switch’s best releases and one you shouldn’t miss out on. – App Trigger



If you haven’t played Shovel Knight, Treasure Trove is an absolute must buy… and if you have, you already know that it’s a must buy. – Gaming Age
While the original game was a fabulous romp, the Treasure Trove collection is more than worthy of investing some time into. Anyone who already has the original will obtain the upgraded package for free, but if bought separately, each of the three released campaigns should keep you entertained with great platforming that’s full of charm. With more stuff coming in the next year, the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove is worth its weight in gold. – TheSixthAxis
Shovel Knight is one of the best indie games in the last few years, and this is the best edition so far. It also works great with the Switch concept, so if you have the new Nintendo console and you haven’t played Shovel Knight yet, you shouldn’t miss it. – Vandal
