1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

New horizons are the ultimate digital escape, providing you with your own gateway island that you will live in, customize, and watch flourishing overtime. 

New horizons build on the already addicting gameplay of Nintendo’s beloved life stimulator, allowing you to craft your own items and rack up rewarding Nook Miles as you catch bugs, plant trees, interact with your neighbors and final cool clothes and household items for your personal villager.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It sets you to lose in a massive, gorgeous open world, where you can battle through dungeons, solve puzzles, paraglide around the skies or simply cook some food. 

Breath of the Wild redefines what an open-world game could be, with a truly explorable Hyrule in which every mountain is climbable and every hidden path leads to a new adventure.

3. Super Mario 3D All-Stars

It packs three of the most beloved 3D platforms of all time into a single, highly nostalgic package. This collection gets you Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy, allowing you to experience the evolution of 3D Mario games from the Nintendo 64 all the way to the more modern WWII era. 

This game is still a joy to play today with both motion and touch controls. Rounding out the package is access to the full soundtrack for every game, so you can rock out like it’s 1996.

4. Pokemon Sword and Shield

It has all of the addicting monster-catching, battling and exploring that makes the series great while making some significant evolution of the Game Freak’s beloved RPG formula. 

The game’s London-inspired Galar region features the most-dynamic environments the franchise has seen yet, with open-world style wild areas filled with wild Pokemon that provide a real challenge for seasoned trainers.

5. Paper Mario: The Origami King

Nintendo’s cult-favorite Paper Mario series returns with Paper Mario, which delivers a fresh take on the quirky RPG franchise and a stunning 2D meets 3D art style that sees Mario and friends take on origami enemies.

Gameplay-wise, the Origami king blends strategic turn-based battles with fun exploration, mini-games, and puzzle. The game’s stunning visuals and goofy charm are what make it truly stand out.

6. Fire Emblem: Three Houses

It is one of the biggest and most-expensive entries yet in Nintendo’s beloved role-playing series. Three Houses builds on the series addictive, deeply strategic tactical combat while adding a new twist — you now play as a professor who must choose one of three houses and guide their students in both daily school lives and on the battlefield.

7. Super Mario Odyssey

It is the plump plumber’s most-expensive and inventive 3D adventure yet, setting you loose in a series of brilliantly designed sandbox worlds filled with exciting secrets.

It’s a constant barrage of joyful discovery, whether you are taking control of a T-Rex or a stack of Goombas with your sentiment hat or wrapping into a wall for some classic 2D Mario gameplay.

8. Untitled Goose Game

The hills of gaming are live with honking. Part stealth game, part prankster heaven, Untitled Goose Game has taken over the internet by placing gamers in the webbed feet of a despicable goose out to ruin the days of everyone in a quaint little suburb. 

While its amazingly simple controls may trick you into thinking it’s going to be a cakewalk, the difficulty ramps up enough to turn this adorably drawn puzzler into a true challenge.

9. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition

One of the most-beloved role-playing games of this generation has finally landed on Nintendo’s switch. As its name suggests, the Witcher packs in every bit of content found in CD Projekt Red’s massive open-world adventure, plus all previously released downloadable content. 

Its switch port sacrifices visual quality in the name of playability, it still features the same massive world, gripping story with branching narratives and satisfying combat that make Geralt of Rivia’s third outing so memorable.

10. Celeste

It stands out as one of the absolute best Nintendo’s Switch games available. This pixelated, ultra-tight 2D sidescroller is simple yet immensely satisfying, and you will use your jump, dash, and wall grab to avoid spikes, pits and all manner of spooky specters in screen after screen of precise platforming challenges.
