You can now get the Nintendo Switch Super Mario Odyssey bundle with the other versions of the console too. There’s not much of a discount, but seeing as the Switch is selling out again, this might be your last chance anyways. Amazon has the best price today.
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.
A gentle farming role-playing game that begins with someone chucking in their corporate cubicle job to run away to the country and live off the land. Stardew Valley is unquestionably the best value indie game on Switch: a full farming year lasts 20 hours and you can continue playing it pretty much indefinitely. Beware: during quiet moments at work, you may find yourself hiding in the toilets in order to harvest virtual strawberries.
FIFA 18 is by far the best sports game on the Nintendo Switch and features beautiful lifelike graphics and engaging gameplay that looks like an actual soccer game. Kids will be excited to know that the game offers a mode where they can create their own players and teams.

This Nintendo switch game is available in 3 languages, namely Japanese, English, and French. This is to say, there is the English version, Japanese version, and French version of the game. The Square Enix Switch I am Setsuna is great and will make you have a nostalgic feeling about the games you enjoyed when you were young. The multiple languages also make it easy to follow instructions and enjoy the “I am Setsuna” Nintendo Game.
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.

The procedural algorithms crunching numbers behind the scenes in The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ will almost guarantee you never see the same thing twice. This top-down dungeon crawler plays like a cross between a shooter and an adventure game in the vein of the original Legend of Zelda. Afterbirth+ adds more power-ups, enemies, bosses, and secrets to a game brimming with variety. It gives Isaac more ways to tap into the unexpected and surprise you even after hundreds of hours.
The Joy-Con controller is actually a pair of controllers that attach to the sides the the Nintendo Switch when not in use or when playing in tablet form away from the TV. When playing the Nintendo Switch on the TV, you can remove them and play with one in each hand. The left hand gets a controller with an analogue stick and d-pad, the right hand handles the one with a second analogue and the usual A, B, X and Y face buttons. Or you and a friend can use one each in multiplayer games with the d-pad doubling up as impromptu face buttons.
Call to ask when they expect the line to begin, and check with many locations in your area to get as much information as possible, and then get pick where you think you’ll have the best chances of having a good position in line, or they will have the best stock.
Want to play games with other people? You can do this right out of the box, actually, by turning each of the Joy-Con on its side and using those as individual gamepads. It’s a less-than-great solution — they’re tiny, uncomfortable, and easily dropped.
There’s a gadget out there for every type of Switch owner, from cases and battery packs for portable players to extra controllers and docks for folks who game at home. Here are the best Nintendo Switch accessories you can buy right now.
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.
If you protect your smartphone screen, think about doing the same for your Nintendo Switch. The amFilm tempered glass screen protector offers 99.9 percent screen transparency, so there should be no interference to your view while you dive into the latest Zelda quest. It’s cheap and effective.
It’s not everyone that would have had the chance to enjoy Bayonetta 2 when it was first released back in 2014 thanks to its Wii U exclusivity. Fortunately, the game has finally come to Nintendo Switch alongside its fantastic predecessor, giving it the reach it deserves.

Everybody with a Switch knows about Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, but there are many great games for the system beyond Nintendo’s core classics. With success comes support, and the Switch has already seen far more support from both the major third-party publishers and independent developers than the Wii U saw after its launch. The Switch’s digital eShop is full of games that can download, and the Switch racks at most retailers already outnumber the Wii U offerings still on display. If you need help cutting through the clutter, let us point you towards the best of the best. Here are the 15 games you most need to play for the Nintendo Switch, along with 18 other honorable mentions that are all worth a download.
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.
If you only buy one multiplayer Switch title, make it Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. You know the drill: Choose an iconic Nintendo character, jump in a modded kart, and win at all costs. The deluxe version of the game includes new racers and battle modes, plus all those dazzling weapons and power-ups (beware the blue shell).
Players will be treated to new weapons, stages, and more game modes. The game has also been improved upon visually. Local and online multiplayer are available, too. Difficult to get bored with the game, as it’s consistently and continually updated.
At times it’s hard to believe something like this is running on Nintendo’s portable console as you climb vast mountains and trawl through dark industrial cities. It’s one of Monolith Soft’s finest efforts yet, and feels right at home on Switch.
This thing…sucks. Launching with barely any games, gimmicky, overpriced compared to considerably better console, this probably spells the beginning of the end for Nintendo in the console market. The graphics are mediocre and the controls are absolutely abysmal. We sold ours after a day, fortunately for more than we paid because of Nintendos false scarcity that they’ve created. Don’t be duped into buying this joke. You’ll regret it.
Amazon has the Switch through third-party sellers. Most of the units are going for around $350. Third-party sellers also have units at Walmart’s site, too. Switch consoles start at around $375 with various shipping charges. Overstock.com offers free shipping on consoles.
Waterfield’s answer to the game case is an exquisite example of how you can look like a grown-up, but play like a kid. The Arcade Gaming Case is a beautiful designer bag made of full-grain leather (let me tell you, this leather feels so nice!) with a soft plush lining. It’s big enough to fit your Switch tablet (with the Joy-Cons detatched), a Hori Compact PlayStand, your Joy-Cons, all your necessary cables, and more. I managed to fit all of the above, plus my Mophie Powerstation XXL (which is a monolith itself) comfortably. It looks so good over your shoulder like a satchel, but also carries around briefcase style thanks to the leather handle on top.
Playing very much like the original, Splatoon 2 takes what made its Wii U debut so much fun and turns it up to 11. The motion controls are still a little tricky to get used to, but the addition of the dual-wielded Splat Dulies (along with a set of new weapons, arenas and fashions) really helps keep it feeling fresh. The new co-op, wave-based Salmon Run is absolutely fantastic and the allure of being able to play absolutely anywhere makes Splatoon 2 a must-have.
The Japanese firm said it will launch the Switch, a hybrid home console and handheld device, on March 3. It will be priced US$299.99 in the United States, the same as Nintendo’s current Wii U console, whereas in Japan, it will cost about 20 per cent over its predecessor at 29,980 yen. Canadian retailers Best Buy and GameStop have the console listed at $399.99 for online pre-orders.
Looking for a cheap Nintendo Switch with at least one game? We’ve seen this bundle for less, but if the other bundles sell out, then this is a decent alternative, especially as Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is still quite new. This is available with the red/blue edition of the Nintendo Switch at Currys.
This is a nice add to my video game collection. I am enjoying the different modes this console can be played in and have taken on a trip already. The Switch is very comfortable and makes for a great gaming experience on the go.
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.
“Thank you so much for the service you provide, I’ve been crying myself to sleep every night because destiny is pretty much sold out everywhere. Thanks to you guys, the river has stopped flowing and I has Destiny.” -J Nasty
For those of you hoping to play your Wii U version of Mario Kart 8 on Switch, we’re sorry to say you can’t. However, you can pick up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe when it launches in April and enjoy everything Mario Kart 8 has – including all DLC – alongside new characters, courses and a brand-new Battle Mode that’s like the classic arena-based balloon warfare found on past titles.
Lichtspeer takes place in a land rid with monsters, yet you are a champion who can channel the power of the Gods to take on enemies and restore balance to the universe. Grab your speer and restore your kingdom to it’s glory for just $7.
It’s a tablet, a console and a portable multiplayer tabletop game system all in one… and it’s pretty darn awesome. The Nintendo Switch ($295.00 at Amazon.com) console follows the NES Classic and Super Mario Run in a line of products from the Japanese giant that have titillated gamers over the past year.
