Enter platform paradise. Rayman Legends offers some of the best platform gaming available today. True, the Switch edition doesn’t really offer anything new compared to the versions on other consoles, but it’s still a must-buy. It gorgeous to look at. The controls are precise and responsive. And, at the end of each stage, there’s a rhythm level that kicks the experience up a notch with music that syncs up with your jumps. Platform on the go and slide your Joy-Cons out to share the experience with a friend in local multiplayer.
Nintendo always brings amazing experience out of its own studios, and the Switch has already seen some of the best games of all time in its first year. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Fire Emblem Warriors, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the astounding Super Mario Odyssey have all wowed us.
The retailer’s site only has a “coming soon” page live and a list of games or accessories to buy, and after calling a few locations I was told that there was no online pre-order, meaning every single one of the systems that Toys R Us is receiving will be going to a walk-in. We were also told that there will be no midnight openings for the hardware’s release.
Treasure Trove is a collection of all the Shovel Knight content developer Yacht Club games has made so far. You can start by revisiting the excellent campaigns for Shovel Knight or Plague Knight, but the best part of Treasure Trove lies in Specter of Torment, the latest Shovel Knight expansion that uses a prequel to tell the tragic story of Specter Knight. The new mechanics, levels, and bosses are some of Yacht Club’s best work in the series. And if three campaigns set in the world of Shovel Knight aren’t enough for you, Treasure Trove owners will get the upcoming King Knight expansion as a free update in the future.
Possibly not! Remember how the Joy-Con controller splits in two? Turn them sideways and you get two basic controllers, each with their own analogue stick and face buttons – the d-pad acts as face functions on the left controller. So far we’ve seen 2K’s NBA series, Snipper Clips and Mario Kart being used this way for local multiplayer in both docked and tablet modes. So you get multiplayer functionality straight out of the box with no additional purchase required.
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.
A stylish mansion-based murder mystery in which you turn back the clock to save masked attendees of a flamboyant party from grisly deaths. The Sexy Brutale is all about piecing things together: where people go, what they do, and how you can invisibly intervene to change what happens, like removing the ammunition from a wall-mounted shotgun that’s about to be used in a confrontation. Macabre and compelling.
If you plan to buy a lot of the Switch Game Cards, you can either keep the games stored in their not-quite pocketable cases, or you can look into a $10 Game Card Case that lets you keep your whole library in one compact place.
Ultra Street Fighter 2 is essentially the same Street Fighter 2 that’s been continuously re-released on every console under the sun. Technically this version is based on Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo from 1994, which added super and air combos to the base game, but unless you’re a die-hard fan this likely won’t mean too much to you.
The main difference from the PC and console iterations of the game is the ability to use the Switch’s motion controls and the option to play on the go (which is downright awe-inspiring). Just make sure you have a spare 300 hours to devote to it.
Some of us don’t want Wi-Fi getting in the way of our online gameplay, and while Switch doesn’t offer an Ethernet port in the tablet itself there’s a way to make sure you’re wired when connected to the dock.
But there’s more than just the astonishing Breath of the Wild to enjoy on Nintendo’s home-or-handheld device, and thanks to a mix of ports and sterling new games, the Switch has a rather fantastic lineup less than a year after its release.
Matches are incredibly fast-paced and satisfying, offering a tense competition that always feels fun and refreshing. You’ve also got a meaty solo campaign to dig into alongside a bunch of neat customisation options for your personal squid kid.
Not only is the look and feel similar to what exists right now for the Wii U, but the Switch Pro Controller is going to offer a bigger battery and has an NFC receiver baked in for Amiibo support. It’s also ready for motion controls as well, so this $69 controller will make a solid alternative when portable as well.

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.
We’re not quite sure how the Nintendo Switch has managed it, but we’re not even getting started with all the games that the console has on offer. Overwhelming much? To help you decide what to buy for your brand spankin’ new console, we’ve listed the best titles available on the switch in ascending order from 25 to the hallowed number one spot. Oh, plus if even Bowser can’t hold back your excitement for Nintendo’s newest console, you’ll want to take a look at our upcoming Nintendo Switch games to see just what’s on the horizon.
Mario Rabbids is also just a lovely game to look at – the level design is consistently fantastic and the world and its characters are adorable and colorful. Joining up with Mario lends Ubisoft’s Rabbids a charm they’ve lacked until now while Mario and co benefit from the partnership by gaining a bit more of a silly sense of humor which really benefits the Nintendo image.
The gaming console itself has amazing graphics for Zelda anyways, be curious to see the other games that are due out. My only concerns are the lack of games that were ready at launch date as Zelda was the only title launched the same day. Also we have only played our console 4 times not consecutively, now our console won’t turn on at all. Tried taking it out of the docking station and charging it that way and even moved it to different locations within the house. Went into Best Buy and was told we need to ship it out to Nintendo and they will repair it and send it back. Disappointed the system only lasted 4 days before not working.
The Nintendo Switch is a hybrid games console that you can play on your TV and also take on the go, thanks to a built-in and a set of detachable controllers. In our full review, we praised the system’s impressively versatile design and ease of use, through we had some concerns about the system’s controllers.
There’s plenty to choose from on the Switch but here we’ve narrowed it down to the best. We’re constantly on the look out for the latest and greatest Switch games so keep checking back here as this list will be frequently updated.
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.
It’s not the usual Nintendo game, but The Binding of Isaac is a platformer that older gamers will love to play on the big screen or on the go. Throw in this accessory pack and you’ve got a Nintendo Switch bundle that gets you a neat saving of just under £40.
But then there’s what other developers are bringing to the table, and there’s simply so much to choose from. From the smaller indie titles like Super Meat Boy, Human Fall Flat and Overcooked to the big budget ports like FIFA 18, Skyrim and Minecraft.
It’s the most versatile console I’ve ever owned. I like that I can play on the TV and just pull it from the dock and continue in any other room in the house and/or take it with me wherever I go. Sure, it’s not the most powerful system, but it makes up for that with the exclusives and the portability factor.
[Breath of the Wild is] a fresh approach to what Zelda games have striven for since the very beginning. The depth you expect, the open exploration and constant sense of discovery the series is known for, are here in perhaps greater effect than ever before, but with the systems and mechanics that drive the moment-to-moment action heavily overhauled. The result is a Zelda that feels unmistakably like a Zelda, but that also breathes new life into the venerable classic.
Super Mario Odyssey is by far the best Nintendo Switch game for kids due to its huge 3D kingdoms, diverse environments, fluid sandbox and entertaining gameplay. The new installment of the Mario series includes a ton of items and costumes for Mario to collect and a new way of playing by controlling object, characters and animals (dogs, dinosaurs, etc.) with your hat.
Mario is also featured prominently in the top 10. Mario Kart 7 remains 3DS’s second-best-selling game, with 15.95 million copies sold. New Super Mario Bros. 2 caps off the top five at 11.73 million, while Super Mario 3D Land trails behind it slightly at 11.40 million.
Along with Yoshi, Luigi, and Peach, Mario joins forces with the Rabbids (who started life in Rayman and went on to star in their own series) to solve puzzles and and fight enemies in a world that combines elements from both franchises.
While the Switch port of Pokkén Tournament DX adds a few new elements into the mix, such as a daily challenge, wireless multiplayer and a handful of extra characters, it is very much the same game as ever. So that’s a surprisingly nuanced brawler that’s as much for genre veterans as it is for anyone who fancies pummeling Pikachu’s face into an adorable mush. With a proper mainline Pokémon confirmed for Switch sometime in the not too distant future, consider Pokkén Tournament DX as a fun taster of greater things to come.
This Nintendo switch is the off spring of the wii u and Nintendo 3ds ! It’s a hybrid between both devices! Nintendo was trying to make this item and ran out of time and made one of mock ups! But they got it right this time! The maneuverability is great I take it where ever when ever! Haven’t taken it to a friends house yet but I imagine the only hiccup will be getting the dock’s hdmi wire and power adapter out of the spaghetti of wires behind my entertainment table ! Any way I love it you’ll love! It gets expensive real fast though! You only get the console, control combiner thing and wires in box! No games. I hate the feel of the controls when in dock mode so I bought the pro controller! Separately ! You have to buy a game! Separately ! You want to protect you new switch you have to buy case and screen protector! Separately ! But it’s worth it! I would recommend this device to everyone and I will soon be ready to purchase another one but I’m waiting until Best Buy bundles the switch with atleast a game! I give it 5stars!
