Along with the company’s latest earnings report, Nintendo has shared a new list of its all-time best-selling titles across 3DS and Switch. The updated charts come from Nintendo’s website and provide new numbers for the top 10 best-selling 3DS games, as well as the top five best-sellers on the nascent hybrid console.
Of course, the plucky (former) plumber is headlining this list. One of numerous Switch exclusives, Super Mario Odyssey is a world-spanning extravaganza that sees you board the good ship Odyssey to track down that pesky baddie Bowser who’s kidnapped Peach…again.

The glory days of Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion hold fond memories for millions of people, and now the duo behind both those games, Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, have brought us Thimbleweed Park, a return to the point-and-click adventures of the early 90s. With the same sarcastic, surreal and self-referential sense of humour that the very best Lucasfilm Games adventures were known for, Thimbleweed Park is the perfect love letter to a much-loved era.
Below you’ll find the best role-playing Nintendo Switch games. Games range from classic hits to odes to the 16-bit era and a first party Nintendo game that is already winning hearts. Sure there will be more RPG games available in the future, but these are our favorites right now.

The Switch is a smash. Nintendo’s latest system, which you can easily play at home or on the go, launched just under a year ago to instant success. It’s one of the fastest-selling consoles of all time, and its signature game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, immediately entered the conversation for best videogame ever made. After a few years in the wilderness with the Wii U, Nintendo’s now seeing a combination of critical and commercial success that it hasn’t known in over a decade.
You’re probably dying to get your hands on one. Well, hold up — it’s hard to come by. Here’s what you need to know about snagging the magically versatile gaming system, which has a suggested retail price of $300, £280 or AU$470.
This has caused some retailers to try new things when selling the system. Amazon briefly had the systems but only for Prime subscribers. There are also many new accounts in the third-party seller section with no feedback that are selling the system for far below market cost. Stay far away from these. The price seems to start around $400 for legit third-party offerings; look for sellers with a long history of positive feedback.
What makes the Switch an even better value than the Wii U and other preceding consoles, however, is the fact that it can double as a portable. This means gamers won’t have to spend extra on a DS device to play games when they’re away from the TV. With the Switch, you’re spending $300 for a stationary and portable console when you’d otherwise have to spend between $80 and $200 for a DS (depending on the model) and $300 for a Wii U bundle. From that perspective, the Switch looks like a bargain.
Following closely behind Breath of the Wild is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which stands at 4.42 million copies. The colorful online shooter Splatoon 2 is third with 3.61 million copies sold, while 1-2-Switch and Arms round out the top five at 1.37 and 1.35 million units, respectively. All of these figures combine physical and digital game sales, as well as those included in console bundles.
Easily the oldest game on this list, the original Cave Story dates back to 2004. Essentially a homemade tribute to Metroid and Castlevania, that PC version was updated for the Wii and DS in 2010, and then enhanced for the PC and 3DS under the name Cave Story+ a year later. That’s the version that came to the Switch earlier this year. The same traits that made it so great in all its previous incarnations are present in the Switch port, but with the extra benefit of being playable on both a TV and on the go. This is the kind of long, intricate, Metroid-style game that’s incredibly tough to put down, making it a perfect fit on the portable Switch.
I wrote about my favorite board games from Settlers of Catan publisher Mayfair Games after they announced they would be shutting down their operation. I highly recommend picking up any of the games on this list, especially Star Trek: Five Year Mission if you enjoy co-op games and/or sci-fi.
This is the one for all you Pokemon fans out there as it comes with the freshly updated Pokken Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch. Better yet, you’re getting a themed Pro controller to go with the game in addition to the standard Joy-Cons. There’s a Pokemon poster too as a nice finish. This Nintendo Switch deal is available direct from Nintendo.
It didn’t work when I tried to turn it on. Turns out there is something wrong with the audio and the system shuts down unless headphones are plugged in. I had to send it to Nintendo to get repaired. At least its covered under warranty, but I was offered no compensation from Nintendo for the faulty product. Very disappointed.
The Nintendo Switch is by far the most dissapointing Nintendo console they ever made. The lack of games is the biggest problem. There are very few games on the console and the best games , Zelda Breath of the wild and Mario Kart 8 are also available on the Wii U system which makes it even more useless. There is also many rports of problems with the stand and scratch made to the screen and problems with the controllers. I dont recommend buying this console unless you are a huge Nintendo fan.
So don’t go into this expecting a wildly different game from what you’ve played before. This is a traditional Street Fighter experience through and through, and the console’s form-factor makes it perfect for quick multiplayer sessions.
Managed to snag one of these in store on the first day, along with Zelda and switch 1-2. In mobile mode or working like a tablet, it is excellent – with amazing graphics, excellent controls. Docked and connected to a TV is also excellent. Beware that because of the way the controllers attach and detach, there are a couple of detachable cover pieces that you will need to take care of or risk losing. Overall, it looks like Nintendo has a winner with this one.
The console has a number of exciting first-party and third-party titles. Already it exclusively has two of the most critically acclaimed titles of 2017 with The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. But it’s also home to big third-party offerings like FIFA, Doom, and Skyrim.
The portability of this console is awesome. I can take it anywhere. I even bring it to work and we have FIFA tournaments at lunch. With the announcement of Metroid Prime 4 set to launch on december 28th 2018, this console is by far the best one to come out of Nintendo. Love it. Love it.
When you open the Switch box, it feels you are about to start playing with Lego, because of all the parts that come with it. It has a door on the back which lets you slide in an HDMI cable and the power cord, both included, and some USB ports on the sides and on the back probably for future addons. I guess because it’s half portable, the Switch does not have a network adapter, and you instead have to connect wirelessly and hope your network connection isn’t bad. Or you could just buy a Nintendo Wii (U) USB network adapter to plug it in one of the back USB ports. It’s not the base that is the console; the base is basically a piece of plastic with a small part of it to display graphics on your TV and to charge your Switch. It is the tablet that is the console. There’s a flap thingy that pops open on the back of the console; it lets you place it upright, except it covers the micro-SD card slot to protect your storage. Rather unfortunate that it doesn’t come with one. The Switch can’t handle more than 25 GB of internal storage either, so long-term, you might want to invest in one of these. There is also a little spot to click game cards in, which are small enough to be swallowed by children and pets. But Nintendo coated the game cards with a non-toxic substance that makes them taste quite bitter. There are two controllers called “joy cons” with four face buttons, two shoulder buttons, two side buttons and an analog stick each. Although technically you can combine both by sliding them in the tablet or the controller grip to make it one controller with 8 face buttons and two analog sticks, as well as 4 shoulder buttons, with the side buttons covered by the rails where you slide them in. If you have big hands like me, sliding them in and out of the wrist straps in particular is quite the challenge, because the joy-cons are pretty small and will slip off your hands while you attempt this for the first time, making it difficult to get a grip and pushing multiple buttons on the controller besides the release ones. The Switch lets you jump right in to start playing games instead of wasting your time installing things. Well, if you have games then that’s nice. Sadly, that’s where the fun ends if you don’t. The Switch includes no games, not even something pre-installed. If you want a game, then Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is about the only one worth getting right now. You could’ve also bought Zelda on Wii U if you had one though. Big titles like Splatoon 2 are coming sometime, as well as remakes of golden games like Skyrim if you’ve never played them and want a chance to do so while on the go. That’s what made me get one; being able to play large single player games besides anywhere. The Switch does this well, the console is cool. It is fun to learn how to use it, and begins to click once you start using it, and actually the clicks that you hear from the controller and the console is probably the best hardware design. A good audio cue that lets you know you did something right without breaking the console. That’s essentially what best describes the Switch when you first get it; you’re pushing things, sliding things, clicking things, and putting them in from wherever you find you can. But the games, aside from Zelda, are lacking. Pros: – Small gamecards taste bad, making them child and pet-proof – Great parental controls allow for time tracking of playtime – Fun and intuitive to learn how to use, great introductory tutorial and built-in help topics – Synchronization of your Nintendo Account with your friends list across different Nintendo apps. – Easy to use interface, easy to set up, easy to plug in – Two controllers included, can be combined and be used as one, or split into two to play with a friend. A bit annoying but not the end of the world: – Tablet gets dirty quickly, no screen protector included – No network plug included, requires a
Need to warm up your dancing feet for an impending party or wedding? Well look no further than Just Dance 2018, which moonwalks onto Switch with official licenses (Disney anyone?), as well as all the hottest tracks and artists, including such notables as Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The game isn’t just for seasoned dancers either, with a top Kids Mode delivering children-friendly choreographies and a dance playground.
There are also a number of tracking services such as Zoolert, BrickSeek, Now in Stock, and the recently created Nintendo Switch Finder, which promise to give shoppers a heads up where and when hard-to-find toys and electronics are available. Proceed with caution, though: These services tend to be hit or miss (some people complain the notices are inaccurate or too late to be useful), and you often have to subscribe to emails to receive alerts.
In this case, you’ve got two choices: buy another pair of Joy-Con, or buy a Nintendo Switch Pro controller. We’d suggest the latter: It’s a far more traditional gamepad, thus offering you a second option when you’re playing on the TV as well as solving the multiplayer problem, and it costs $10 less than buying a second pair of Joy-Con.
We’ve highlighted our picks of the best Nintendo Switch bundles below. Just be aware that they don’t really offer much of a discount over buying the items separately. We’ll steer you clear of console bundles that actively charge you more than the regular combined RRP (not cool, guys!).
Built from the ground up specifically for the Nintendo Switch, FIFA 18 provides an immersive gaming experience with a high definition presentation. Players have multiple gameplay options, allowing for offline multiplayer play with the Joy-Con controllers. There’s also single-player and even an online mode to face off other players. Multiple game modes like FIFA Ultimate Team have you creating and unlocking new characters for your fantasy soccer team, as well as in-depth Career Mode to advance to a championship and local seasons. Any kid who wants a thorough sports game experience and loves soccer will love FIFA 18.
The Switch is more proof that technology is definitively getting to the convergence of stationary and mobile. It is a very delicate balance among portability and performance, Ergonomically, the device is a huge success, I can play for hours and my hands can manage it without any issue, much more comfortable than a 3DS-XL. The joysticks and buttons are at the true minimal size to preserve functionality while ensuring compactness. Screen size is also at the right dimensions to avoid being too small and provide enough detail at 720P. I have played with it mostly on portable mode, once in a while plugged to recharge as playing. A few times played on the TV, going back quickly to portable to enjoy the opportunity to play on bed. My only major concern is the limited battery size, I wish Nintendo could just add a few extra grams and getting a more useful 4-5 hrs playing time.
Nintendo Switch’s main component is the Switch Console, a tablet-shaped device that’s packed with cutting-edge hardware. Slide the Switch Console into the Switch Dock and you’ll enjoy a complete, high-definition gaming experience on your TV.
This has been one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch so far and an absolute must for Mario and platforming fans. Like Zelda below though, this being a first-party Nintendo title, it’s taking forever to go down in price. It’s slowly happening though, so we’ve rounded up the cheapest Super Mario Odyssey prices for you below. If you’re not getting this game in a bundle, we’d strongly advise picking it up separately as soon as possible.
With long-running series like Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing, Nintendo has developed an audience for games of the life simulator variety. That’s part of the reason Chucklefish and ConcernedApe’s Stardew Valley feels like such a natural fit on the Switch. Gameplay that involves planting crops as you watch your plot of land flourish into a prosperous farm is just the type of experience that works brilliantly on mobile. And since the Switch pulls double duty as a handheld device and a console, you can get that portability without the compromises that can come with using touchscreen-only controls.
ThinkGeek has 10 different Switch bundles that you can preorder, starting at around $400. Eight other preorder sets have already sold out. The bundles will become available in late August and early September.
the online retailer launched exclusive Nintendo Switch sales at midnight PST on March 3, for Prime members only. Stock was available as of an hour ago, but is now sold out. Keep checking for Amazon to restock the console. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available for 20% off for Prime members.
I think some people may be put off from Nintendo after the inconsistent performance of the Wii U. Personally, I enjoyed the Wii U as a system, and there are many fine games that came out on it. However, bigger titles were few and far between and Nintendo really seemed to abandon the system after it had a pretty cold reception. Historically, Nintendo systems have always done well because each new one offers something completely unique and different. The Wii for example, completely changed gaming with motion controls, much like the N64 did with including a Joystick on the controller that actually worked well and wasn’t cumbersome. The Wii U did step things up with an interactive touch screen tablet controller and great backwards compatibility to the Wii, but it seemed a little too tame to really shake things up in the gaming world like Nintendo often does.
Chances are you’ve played Shovel Knight on one system or another in previous years, but if you’ve yet to take the game on the go, or better yet if you’re looking to try its newest expansion pack, ‘Specter of Torment’, then the Switch is as good a place as any to satisfy your Shovel cravings.
Even so, shoppers shouldn’t anticipate Switches showing up in abundance on store shelves anytime soon. GameStop COO Tony Bartel recently said in an earnings call that new Switch shipments sell out as soon as they’re in stores, and he expects “to be chasing supply this entire year.” In other words, expect the Nintendo Switch demand to only get stronger in the back half of the year, especially as the holidays approach.
