So you’ve just picked up a Nintendo Switch and are looking to play the best of what the platform has to offer. Luckily, we at Console Deals have got you covered! The beauty of Nintendo’s new hybrid console is that you can play great games on the go as well as at home on the big screen. This is a list of the 10 best Nintendo Switch games that look and feel great to play on either, guaranteeing you a good time whether you’re on the bus to work or relaxing on the sofa.

1. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Previously underserved by the Wii U’s lacklustre sales, Mario Kart’s eighth instalment was able to enjoy a second wind thanks to a souped-up, remastered version in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Drifting around corners as the Mushroom Kingdom’s eclectic cast of characters has never been more thrilling than on the Nintendo Switch, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s new anti-grav sections and overhead racing offering a degree of spectacle that makes boost past your friends even more of a blast.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe features 48 vibrant tracks to play on across 12 cups – four of which were only previously purchasable as additional DLC on the Wii U, but are now available right from the off in this definitive Nintendo Switch version. We say definitive because, in addition to being the most feature-complete Mario Kart 8 package, your ability to break off two Joy-Con and get a couch co-op race going in minutes is truly a modern marvel.

    2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Arguably one of the best games to ever be released alongside a Nintendo console’s launch, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild blew everyone’s expectations away with its emphasis on unrestrained freedom of movement through a living, breathing upon world. It does away with the dungeon-based formula of prior entries and asks players to trust their own instincts and immerse themselves within a version of Hyrule that has gone unprotected for hundreds of years.

    What sees Breath of the Wild stand so highly above its peers is its insistence to let players go anywhere and climb anything. Eventually you’ll come across what are known as shrines; essentially acting as mini-dungeons that are quickly resolved and gift Link with the ability to improve his health or grip. Both are useful in the bid to defeat Ganon, whether you’re brave enough to tame all four of the divine beasts beforehand or not. Breath of the Wild is a Nintendo Switch essential.

    3. Super Mario Odyssey

    Super Mario Odyssey

    If Galaxy saw him shoot off to space and Sunshine let him chill on vacation, Super Mario Odyssey sees Nintendo’s little, moustachioed plumber go on a global trip around the world. He’s still attempting to rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s grasp, who this time is intent on marrying the poor girl. Thus kicks offs a new 3D platforming adventure for Mario, where players must gather as many Power Moons as possible to power the eponymous ship and stop the wedding before it’s too late.

    Odyssey’s gimmick is Mario’s iconic hat, which he can now throw on the head of any enemy you see in order to take possession of them. Doing so feels weird at first, but eventually becomes second nature. Each possession lets you unlock a new way of traversing through whatever world you find yourself in, whether it’s using Bullet Bills to boom across large gaps or capturing one Goomba to form a tower of many and get to high places. Super Mario Odyssey is colourful, creative and fun, rendering not only one of the best Nintendo Switch games, but the best Mario game in a while.

    4. Diablo III: Eternal Collection

    Diablo 3 Switch

    Diablo III is Blizzard’s top-down dungeon crawler that has lived numerous lives on many different consoles. Its hack-and-slash addictive gameplay loop combines with a near-endless amount of loop drops to render it too easy to lose countless hours grinding for the best. The likelihood of this happening is increased tenfold thanks to the Nintendo Switch version, known as Diablo III: Eternal Collection. It contains the Diablo III base game, the Reaper of Souls story expansion and all additional character classes that have been released so far, including the Crusader and Necromancer.

    Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Switch features hundreds of hours of content for you to mash, bash and fight through, all of it kept fresh thanks to each class playing wildly differently due to their many distinct abilities. What’s more, The Nintendo Switch version is the only way you can don the mighty Ganondorf’s armour set, for anyone wanting to venture through hell as The Legend of Zelda’s lifelong bad guy.

    5. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    Donkey Kong Super Smash

    They said it couldn’t be done, but in 2018 we got confirmation in a Nintendo Direct announcement that every known playable fighter ever from Smash Bros. history would be appearing in the Nintendo Switch version. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate lives up to its title, featuring a staggeringly large roster of 74 characters – and that’s not taking into account the six additional fighters confirmed for those that pick up the Fighter’s Pass.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate also sees a revised campaign mode make its debut in World of Light. In it, players are tasked with restoring the spirits of all 74 characters by doing battle with them and overcoming certain challenges that sees most mimic the moves of other characters from game history. The online portion is also more robust than it’s ever been, in frantic fights that support all major Nintendo Switch controller options.

    6. Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

    Rayman Legends Switch

    Side-scrolling 2D platformers might not be as affluent as they were in the early 90s, but at least Switch players can count on Rayman for some good old-fashioned running, jumping and punching action. Rayman Legends may have previously released during the late days of Wii U, yet this new version (dubbed the “Definitive” Edition) has never looked better on the Nintendo Switch screen.

    You’ll venture through multiple colourful worlds collecting as many magical Lums as possible, saving Teensies and defeating enemies across colossal 120 levels. Then a further 40 remastered from the previous game: Rayman Origins. Rayman Legends even supports 4-player couch co-op, meaning you and three of your mates can work together to bring peace back to the world the Dark Teensies are threatening.

    7. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

    Wolfenstein 2 official artwork

    A direct sequel to MachineGames’ excellent 2014 Wolfenstein reboot, The New Order, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus continues the adventures of BJ Blazkowicz – this time portably on the Nintendo Switch. This is a fully fledged first-person shooter that’s comparable to how it looks and feels on other, more powerful consoles, running at a steady 30fps when either in docked or handheld mode. It might lack the ability to play any of the episodic post-release content available on other platforms, but Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a real spectacle that proves the power of the console.

    For those that aren’t up to speed with the Wolfenstein games, the series take place in an alternate history where the Nazis won WWII. The New Colossus sees them ramp up their regime and finally invade the American front, with you as BJ Blazkowicz being the resistance effort’s last hope at regaining control. Your primary way of doing so is by kicking their ass aggressively, utilising traditional and laser weaponry to fight for your freedom with bombast and style.

    8. Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove

    Shovel Knight Specter of Torment

    Wind back the clock to the days of 8-bit platformers with Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, the first game from indie developer Yacht Club. You take up the mantle as the eponymous digging enthusiast, collecting treasure and overcoming platform challenges in the effort to defeat the other knights that make up the villainous Order of no Quarter. They’ve kidnapped your beloved Shield Knight, requiring you to best eight distinctly themed levels while traversing through the world map – taking down a boss at the end of each.

    Shovel Knight actually released, in its original incarnation, as long ago as 2014. However, in the hopes of fulfilling their promises made on Kickstarter, Yacht Club has stuck with the game and has consistently added free DLC even after the Nintendo Switch release. Shovel of Hope is the vanilla campaign, Plague of Shadows put you in the shoes of Plague Knight, and Specter of Torment again sees you play as another member of the Order of no Quarter in Specter Knight. Shovel Knight’s King of Cards campaign is still to come, and would finally render the Treasure Trove complete.

    9. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

    Tropical Freeze

    Ideal for anyone craving a bit more of a challenge than you’ll find in the average Super Mario 2D platformer, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a visually vibrant spin-off that sees you swoop, swing and bounce your way through the jungle tropics just as an ice dragon swoops in to freeze Donkey Kong Island. It’s the work of none other than Viking-themed baddies called the Snowmads, kicking off one hell of a side-scrolling platforming adventure.

    Tropical Freeze is another Wii U port that made its way to Switch, but brings with it a few new refinements that makes it less daunting for Donkey Kong newcomers. You’ll still be taking down enemies, finding bananas and collecting letters, but a newly added “Funky Mode” exclusive to the Switch version grants Kong the ability to hover and take more hits. Suddenly, one of the best 2D platformers ever made can now be enjoyed by everyone – especially with the Switch’s added convenience.

    10. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Remastered

    Elder Scrolls VR

    Enter a world of dungeons and dragons while living up to your destiny as the fabled Dragonborn. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has slowly become one of the most revered and celebrated open world adventures since it original released back in 2011, with the Nintendo Switch version being a great way to experience its mixture of exploration, flexible combat and varied mission design. Create your own character and be whoever you want to be within an open world that’s as close to Middle Earth as you can get in a game.

    Its one of the best games you can play on Nintendo Switch simply due to how equal it is to the other console versions. While some technical compromises have been made by way of draw distance and texture details, you can still play in either first or third person, have full access to all the base game’s quests and can even dress up as The Legend of Zelda’s Link thanks to some exclusive outfits.

    Honourable mentions

    If you’re STILL at a loss of Nintendo Switch games to play, here are a few honourable mentions that just barely missed a spot on our top 10 list. All are cracking in their own right, only further serving to highlight the eclectic library thriving on Nintendo’s hybrid platform.

    SteamWorld Dig 2

    What do you get when you splice the digging gameplay of Dig Dig with the back-and-forth interconnectivity found in games like Metroid and Castlevania? You get SteamWorld Dig, of course! And better yet its bigger, and unabashedly better sequel SteamWorld Dig 2 is now available on the Nintendo Switch. Directly following on from the original game’s events, you play as Dorothy: a steam-powered prospector in search of her partner (and first game’s protagonist) Rusty. This affords you the freedom to explore the Earth below in any direction you wish, with SteamWorld Dig 2 introducing new power-ups, new enemy types and new ways to explore the hazardous caves.

    Splatoon 2

    Nintendo surprised everyone with the release of the original Splatoon on the Wii U. It was the first new IP the Japanese console-maker had invested in properly for quite some time, let alone primarily a multiplayer-focussed one that saw players drench each other in coloured ink in a bid to cover the most map surface area. Splatoon 2 for Switch is a more than worthy sequel, continuing the warring adventures between the Inklings and Squidlings. There is a short campaign mode for solo players, but it’s when taking the action online that Splatoon 2 excels brilliantly at its messiest.

    Doom

    2016’s Doom reboot was a revelation to most first-person shooter enthusiasts. Rather unexpectedly, players were encouraged to run and shoot against demons head-on as opposed to taking cover and just popping off shots from far away. The Nintendo Switch port features this same anarchic action, challenging players to shoot their way across Mars and through the pits of hell in one of the most grotesque games you’re likely to play on a Nintendo platform. Chainsaw and Shotgun at the ready!

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas

    The likes of Skylanders, LEGO Dimensions and Disney Infinity may have put the final nail in the coffin as far as toys-to-life games are concerned, but that didn’t stop Ubisoft from giving it their own rendition via an intergalactic ship-based adventure that placed players firmly in the driver’s seat. Starlink: Battle for Atlas takes place in the Atlas star system, with you heading up the resident peace-keepers by going planet to planet and ridding them of any invading alien menace. You can buy toy spaceship add-ons for those who like to display desk ornaments, but they’re not essential to play.
