Having released on PS4, PC and Xbox One in 2016, Furi’s arrival on Switch may be late but, like it’s siblings, it’s absolutely essential for anyone who loves a challenge. For those that don’t know, Furi is a neon-soaked, techno-futuristic action shooter that pits you against increasingly difficult boss fights as you break your way out of a maximum-security space prison. Visually, it’s as if Afro Samurai and Far Cry: Blood Dragon had a lovechild with a synthwave backing track. Brilliant.
Super Mario Odyssey was more than worth the wait and is another fine addition to the growing collection of quality Nintendo Switch exclusives. Savings are at a minimum here, but seeing as this game should amongst your most wanted, this bundle is a great place to start.
From the best Zelda ever to the best Mario Kart ever? Believe it! While it might just seem like a mere port on the surface, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes the excellent Wii U edition and patches its one big deficiency, all while adding the excellent DLC as standard – and then does more.
And this is easily the best portable edition to date, not only packing in huge worlds on the Switch’s capable screen, but also giving you the full range of controls, featuring eight-player online antics, and bundling in a superb set of Super Mario-themed blocks and skins.
Shovel Knight is not a new game. It saw its first release way back in 2014 on the PC after it was funded on Kickstarter, and since then versions have appeared on everything from the Vita to the PS4, the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U.
Considered one of the best role-playing games of all time, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim finally comes to the Nintendo Switch, allowing for intense portable gameplay on the go. With over 200-plus Game of the Year Awards, Skyrim’s open-world adventure is one of the most immersive and brings to the Switch new features such as motion controls and items from the Legend of Zelda series.
Look, Minecraft is Minecraft – and if you’ve already played Minecraft elsewhere, then you’re not going to find anything tremendously new here. But here’s the thing about Minecraft: it’s endlessly replayable and so packed with delight that it’s hard to resist the urge to have it at your fingertips at all times.
Are you checking out Nintendo’s new console, hoping to make the “Switch”? These are the best looking games that are coming out for the Nintendo Switch – we just aren’t sure when. They don’t have to be launch titles, they just have to be coming sometime soon for Nintendo’s ambitious new handheld. Welcome to http://watchmojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Nintendo Switch Games That Look Promising!
Console is great, durable and extremely easy to set up. Feels like a Nintendo product and the quality expectations of it. Only downside is no Netflix or other third party app support yet. If you are not into Zelda at the moment I would suggest waiting a little for more content to be released.
Another good one from Nintendo Switch! The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a randomly generated action-shooter that features rogue-like elements and heavy RPG. In this game, all you need to do is to follow Isaac on his journey to find bizarre treasures that change his form and give him supernatural powers for fighting off droves of mysterious creatures. As a player, you need to discover these secrets and fight the Isaac way to safety.
Nintendo Switch bundles with additional games are a mixed bag at the moment, but this is one of the cheapest ones. Don’t worry if the Neon Red/Blue version is a bit loud for you, you can get this bundle in grey for the same price too.
A golfing sim wrapped up in a funny, faintly absurd story about a guy who quits his life to become a pro golfer, even though he’s a bit rubbish. Oddly enough, everyone you meet along your way through this story seems to demand you complete a putting challenge before they’ll talk to you. The combination of straightforward golf mechanics and absurd situations feels almost like magical realism. A game to cheer up any commute.
Who said for you to enjoy a game, you need to look at the screen? Nintendo Switch has something that will help you throw an incredible party anywhere with anyone. In this game, players look and face each other and not the screen. You and your friend or for this case, opponent, will get into real world actions like a copycat dance-off, cow-milking competitions, and wild-west duels.
Puyo Puyo Tetris combines the most iconic puzzler of all time with an adorable bubble block puzzle game to create something entirely new and unique. Including a bizarre story mode, players can choose to play rounds of Puyo Puyo, Tetris, or fusions of the two.
Super Mario Odyssey is Mario’s first real outing on the Nintendo Switch and he makes his debut in style. Odyssey is a 3D sandbox adventure that sees Mario travel between a wide range of worlds to save Princess Peach from the nefarious and maritally-minded Bowser.

When it comes to games, the most exciting sale happening right now is that Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is only $45 on Amazon — the lowest price we’ve seen on it. (I‘ve played it on my Wii U twice already but I’m also going to pick it up for Switch because it’s that dang good.) Warner Brothers fans are having a good week too. On Fanatical you can pick up a bundle of Batman PC games plus a bunch of DLC valued at over $100 for $9.99, or mix and match three WB games on PC for $11.99. Microsoft is also selling the Batman Telltale series for just $10.

Happen to see Best Buy had some in stock and ordered mine without any problems and received it the following week. Thank you, Best Buy. Not enough games at the moment but I bought it for Zelda and Mario for now. Zelda: Breath of the Wild is beautiful game…by far the best Zelda to date.
As with any new console we imagine you’re wanting to know a bit more about the console before you put any money down. So in addition to finding the best Nintendo Switch deals, we’re going to help bring in answers to the burning questions.
Super Mario Odyssey delivers everything you’d expect from a modern Super Mario game — and so much more. It’s the first sandbox-style Super Mario flagship since 2002’s Super Mario Sunshine, and a lot has improved in that 15-year gap. Mario’s ability to take on the form of his enemies thanks to his magical companion hat Cappy adds a whole new dimension to gameplay. Mario has always been able to gain new abilities through power-ups. But the capability to fully transform into foes like Bullet Bill and others gives Mario even more tools for progressing through levels and solving puzzles. It’s this aspect that makes Odyssey feel profoundly different than any of Mario’s previous incarnations.
