15. Disgaea 5



 
Disgaea 5 Complete (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 59.99 24h


A strategy game with a great role-playing plot. Disgaea 5 Complete is presented with a range of colourful and unconventional characters. And let's not forget that you can make your own curry!

This instalment of the legendary Disgaea series tells a tale of revenge, and of rebellion. As a new and terrible Overlord named Void Dark seeks to enslave the countless Netherworlds, one young demon has stood to end his reign-Killia.

In Disgaea 5, players lead Killia and his tenacious army of rebels on their dark and dangerous path to vengeance. Filled with more over-the-top action and hilarious writing than ever before, Disgaea 5's damage numbers are surely headed for the record books. 

Features: 
  • Alliance Attacks: New to the Disgaea series, your relationship with your teammates influences a new battle system called Alliance Attack. These special moves are only available to main characters and only when their relationships are appropriately aligned. 
  • Recruitment: A familiar feature for Disgaea faithful, this system lets you choose from over 40 races and jobs, and identify new party members with the exact traits you desire. 
  • Revenge Mode: The Revenge Mode empowers your characters with bonus stats when they've become fed up of their allies being beat on.
  • Explore the Netherworlds: While previous games in the series have shown a glimpse of the darkness that is the Netherworlds, Disgaea 5 takes you to a myriad of those dark lands. 


What do the critics have to say?

I have played several other tactical strategy RPGs and always lost interest, but I am loving this one. I love that it doesn't take itself too seriously. It runs beautifully and has loads of content. Love the combo systems and wacky dialogue/story.

14. The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+



 
The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 39.99 24h
 
 
The Binding of Isaac has had quite an interesting journey over the past few years. Originally it was banned from Nintendo platforms thanks to its creepy, crawly take on religion, the former Newgrounds hit eventually found its way onto the 3DS long after finding an established base on other platforms.

Now, Nintendo seems to have cosied up to Edmund McMillan’s strange roguelike odyssey, with Afterbirth+ getting its only physical release on the Switch—and being treated like a first-party release in everything but name only.

Afterbirth+ on Nintendo Switch runs at 60 frames per second on both the TV and the handheld screen. Since the Switch can quickly detect additional controllers, it is easy to add up to three more players for drop-in co-op, and co-op works great with the individual Joy-Con controllers turned sideways.

The default settings are fine, but you can remap every button action to fit your playstyle. Adding a support character come with some risk, since it sacrifices one of your hearts, but it can pay off with OP item combinations that can help two players breeze through dungeon rooms.

Isaac has always been packed with secrets and unlockables, and the amount of stuff combined with the random layouts of each floor can make it seem haphazard. Play for a few runs though and you begin to realise how much control you actually have. Sometimes you’re at the mercy of blind luck and have to make the best of whatever items and disfigurements come your way, but eventually, you’ll find the means to load the dice and stack the deck in your favour.

If what you're looking for is the ying-yang of fresh formula and the surprise of the unexpected in playing a Nintendo Switch game, then The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is the game for you. Variety is off the charts across all categories. Afterbirth+ boasts a total of over 600 items, 180 enemy types, and more than 90 deadly bosses. The game offers unpredictable game play and enemies which make it a funky and replayable game. 

Features:

 
  • Over 600 different items to collect
  • 13 unique playable characters
  • More than 180 individual enemy types
  • 90+ terrifying, deadly bosses
  • Multiple difficulty settings and game modes
  • Bestiary to record enemy encounters
  • 20 professionally animated cartoon endings
  • AND MANY MORE SECRETS!
     
 
What do critics have to say?
 

Without a doubt, The Binding of Isaac is the most varied, addictive dungeon-crawler ever made. As the most definitive version, Afterbirth+ is perfect both as a portable game for quick runs and as a docked game for lengthy plays. A must-have for Switch owners.

13. I Am Setsuna (Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna)



 
Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna (Nintendo™ Switch, JPN)US$ 47.99 24h
 
I Am Setsuna's story begins off in an intriguing way. Endir, a hired fighter who fills in as the diversion's fundamental hero, is entrusted with the death of a young lady by the name of Setsuna. This main character is sent off on a conciliatory journey to an area known as the Last Lands with the express motivation behind by one means or another keeping the creatures that litter the world under control.
 
It sets a path for an authentic JRPG style of game for Nintendo Switch. It tells a story of Setsuna's journey towards her ultimate sacrifice for her to save the people of her land. The air of nostalgia is quite noticeable in this game with its storyline.



It is considered as one of the most memorable RPGs of the yesteryear. I Am Setsuna allows its players to be immersed in a fantasy world and adventure beyond imagination. You form a band of warriors, spend gold for your new weapons, fight evil, save the world, meet new friends, and say goodbye. You have been warned, this game is quite heavy on its dramatic plot.

More so, I Am Setsuna challenges the usual RPGs that we have quite known. Its emotional impact is quite very nascent in the game. It's storytelling prowess is quite something that must be commended. What more if you see it married to a game?

Features:

 
  • An emotionally impactful story which immerses players in the narrative of Setsuna, whose story portrays heartrending sorrow.
  • A new battle system inspired by the timeless JRPG classic, Chrono Trigger.
  • A great homage to JRPG masterpieces of yesteryear, beautiful character designs and varied in-game locales evoke nostalgia for classic RPGs

What do they have to say?
 
I Am Setsuna does a good job of marrying old and new in one package - and it's delightful on Nintendo Switch.

12. Xenoblade Chronicles 2



 
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 59.99 pre
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Nintendo™ Switch, EUR)US$ 59.99 pre
 
 
In 2010, Xenoblade Chronicles made its debut in Japan specifically for Wii. It was re-released on 3DS in 2015 and on Wii U in 2016. And despite the fact that it isn't the most popular game, it was still able to garner immensely positive reviews. This 2017, it is extending its reach to Nintendo Switch with Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a role-playing game under the Xeno series. This serves as a sequel of the first Xenoblade Chronicles.

The premise of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be an open-world Japanese role-playing video game. Despite it being a sequel to the Xenoblade Chronicles, gamers can expect a new cast of characters and a new world to discover.




To give you a glimpse of what the game can offer, here's the description in the trailer:
 
Explore an endless ocean of clouds, where the last remnants of civilization live on the backs of colossal beasts called Titans. Experience the story of Rex and his new friend, Pyra, a mysterious being known as a Blade who grants him tremendous power. Together, search for Pyra's long lost home Elysium, the ultimate paradise for all ofhumanity.
 
At first glance, there might be a lot of things going on when you first play Xenoblade Chronicles 2. But then again, we cannot judge a book by its cover. Once you see the real-time action and combat, you'll certainly be in awe with the game. And that is a preemptive strike that we are divulging here.
 
 
What do they have to say?
Much like the rest of the series, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 takes place in a beautiful fantasy-meets-science-fiction world, one that stands out due to sheer scale. The new trailer shows off massive explorable worlds, and towering enemies and flying fortresses. It’s the kind of game that should be a great fit for Switch, where players can get in a bit of exploration wherever they go.

11. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim




 
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 59.99 pend
 
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has a great arsenal under its belt that's why it made it on our "Top 15 games For Nintendo Switch." Modesty aside, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a winner of more than 200 "Game of the Year" awards. Plus, it also includes add-ons such as Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
 
The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.
 
Play in a virtual world like no other with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It promises you the freedom to its fullest sense in terms of choosing characters, spells, weapons, and abilities. Be amazed as well with its ancient dungeons, lush fields, bustling cities, rugged mountains, and rolling clouds.

10. Cave Story+



 
Cave Story+ (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 29.99 24h
 
 
Gamers in Cave Story+ will take the role of Quote. Quote is an amnesiac robot who was awakened on a floating island. His goal is to stop the wicked doctor from using the Mimiga for his personal vile purposes. Along the way, you will have allies like the people of Mimiga and another robot, Curly Brace. The game will allow you to run, jump, shoot, fly, and explore the island. 



Cave Story+ is an addictive and polished game with a retro-game styling. As such, it delivers a spectacle of adventure and action making the game both charming and deadly.

Features:
 
  • Upgraded "HD" graphics
  • 7 play modes (including Wind Fortress, Boss Rush and more)Over 20 epic boss battles through Mimiga Island
  • 15 levels to explore in the vast world
  • 10 unique weapons to find and upgrade
  • Four unique endings

Cave Story+ is considered as the first indie gems on Switch. Even up to now, it still holds the top spot for the platform-adventure video game genre. Its soundtrack, visuals, as well as gameplays are already par excellence and less to be improved on. So it is quite a disservice if you fail to add it to your Nintendo Switch library.

 
What do they have to say?

I adore Cave Story. This is my first time playing it, and I can say that this doesn't feel like the 13 year old game it is. It feels like a fresh, modern indie game that takes the best of games like Metroid and Master Blaster and blends them with gorgeous visuals, expert level design, and an amazing well-paced story to create a retro game experience unlike any other.

Super Mario Odyssey (English) (Nintendo™ Switch, ASIA)US$ 59.99 24h
 
Mario games have really never lost its appeal. And obviously, it won't anytime soon. And a testament to that is the Super Mario Odyssey offered for Nintendo Switch. This is the first sandbox-style game after the Super Mario 64 as well as the Super Mario Sunshine. Some of the things that gamers can look forward to this game would be the expansive worlds and new actions like Mario throwing his cap.

Playing Super Mario Odyssey is like traveling the world. Super Mario will venture in a new world with loads of secrets and Power Moons for your taking!

This time, Mario isn't alone in his journey. His quest will be much more enjoyable with his new friend, Cappy,  a mysterious character from the land of hats who’s transformed himself into Mario’s trademark red cap.

Cappy helps Mario in his combat with enemies and to jump higher for his quest for the missing Princess Peach.

Features:

  • Thanks to his new friend, Cappy, Mario has brand-new moves for you to master, like cap throw, cap jump and capture. With capture, Mario can take control of all sorts of things, including objects and enemies!
 
  • Visit astonishing new locales, like skyscraper-packed New Donk City, and run into familiar friends and foes as you try to save Princess Peach from Bowser's clutches and foil his dastardly wedding plans.

Some previously released amiibo will also be compatible with this title. Tap supported amiibo to receive gameplay assistance - some amiibo will also unlock costumes for Mario when scanned!

Puyo Puyo Tetris (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 42.99 24h
 

Loaded content. Variations. Ease of playing the game. These will be some of the things that players will notice once they place Puyo Puyo Tetris. This is the type of game which can actually provide sufficient amount of challenge for hardcore puzzle gamers. But it can also be played by children and newbies.

We have known Tetris and Puyo Puyo individually as juggernaut games in the gaming industry. And when you merge these two, what you'll get is a coorful chain popping action that will keep you hooked every time you play the game.

Features:

 
  • Ferocious Competition - At the heart of Puyo Puyo Tetris is the fighting spirit of players competing against each other to be most clever, cunning, and quick-witted one to set up devastating attacks on opponents. It's the classic easy-to-learn puzzles mashed up into a multiplayer battle like no other!
 
  • Adventure Mode - The game also has a single player mode with ten unique acts, each with ten stages. They feature different characters from the Puyo Puyo or Tetris universes and have unique challenges to learn and master game mechanics that players must overcome!

There's also a Big Bang challenge board where players race to clear challenges as quickly as possible, and Party mode which features powerups that players can activate power-ups.
 
Obviously, Puyo Puyo Tetris is a breath of fresh air giving life to the two classic games that most gamers have loved since they were first launched.


What do they have to say?
 
The game really is great! It feels like a complete package, and the gameplay itself feels so fluid and is just plain fun! Try this out if you haven't tried a Tetris or PuyoPuyo game in a long time.

LEGO City Undercover (English & Chinese Subs) (Nintendo™ Switch, ASIA)US$ 43.99 24h
Lego City Undercover (Nintendo™ Switch, JPN)US$ 49.99 24h


Lego City Undercover remains as a fun game featuring a riff on police procedurals. And your goal is to end the city-wide crime wave caused by notorious criminal Rex Fury as you play as Chase McCain, a police officer.

What makes the game a hit is the fact that it has collectibles that one can hunt down and the side missions along the way. More so, the split-screen play makes the game more appealing.

5. ARMS



 
Arms (Nintendo™ Switch, JPN)US$ 52.99 24h

Stretch your limits and reach for victory!

This is the unique selling proposition of ARMS. And we should really take it literally. ARMS is a revolutionary new sport where elite athletes use awesome extendable arms to fight like never before.

Let's give credit to where credit is due. And when it comes to making clever games for the boxing genre, then ARMS really deserves the credit. Players will learn mastering stretching appendages. And another thing that makes it sought-after would be the adapting party lobby.

Features:

 
  • Deep, strategic gameplay via simple motion and button controls: Tilt the Joy-Con™ controller to move your character about the arena, flick your fists to throw punches, then twist your hands to curve your punches midflight. It's easy to learn, and incredibly satisfying to reach out and punch someone.
 
  • Mix and match arms to strategically bring new fights to your opponent: Select from a variety of different characters with unique abilities and equip a plethora of arms to strategize your approach. Use different combinations of arms and characters to change your approach in each round for endless gameplay possibilities.
 
  • Take on a variety of game modes: Dunk your opponent through a basketball hoop in a game of Hoops, spike your opponent in the face with an exploding ball in a game of V-ball, take on 100 enemies in waves of increasing difficulty, and more.
 
  • Brawl in multiplayer modes: Grab some friends for some team versus modes in 4-player action over local wireless, go online* as a pair, or get your game face on with some ranked 1-on-1 matches.
 
  • Tournament Support and DLC: The LAN mode featured in the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational will release publicly to support competitive players (LAN adapter required; sold separately). Max Brass, the final boss of the game, and his Sky Arena stage will also become playable in a downloadable update.


What do they have to say?
A world where people fight with ramen noodles, DNA, and snakes shouldn't be this much fun. It may take a while to get the hang of the controls in Arms, but the wildly inventive characters, catchy theme music, and unique gameplay style offer enough to capture the attention of casual and competitive gamers alike.

3. Snipperclips


 
Cut the chase! And what we mean by that is for you to take it literally. Really, "cut" the chase. With Snipperclips, you can "cut" the chase by playing an action-puzzle to overcome tricky obstacles. Snipperclips features Snip and Clip, who are paper pals, that need to cut each other out into the right shapes, interact with objects, and solve of imaginative puzzles.



Playing Snipperclips will definitely bring laughter even if you're playing it alone or with a friend. At times, a player will find the puzzle quite bizarre but once players solve the puzzle, they'll definitely see how clever the game is made. Play a game that is definitely odd, wacky, and clever all at the same time with Snipperclips.


 
What do they have to say?

One thing that stands out about the game is the art style. Everything is flat and 2D and looks as if it could all be made from craft paper. The characters are full of life and have personality, which is surprising, considering they exist in a puzzle game. They have a range of facial expressions that make me laugh every time I play. Whether it’s a sneaky look while creeping along close to the ground or a shy blush when your partner cuts a bit of you away, the characters truly bring the game to life.

2. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe



 
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo™ Switch, US)US$ 64.99 1w
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo™ Switch, JPN) sold
 
If you have played this in 2014, you'll still enjoy and yet fall in love with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe this 2017. Its content and element will still hook you to the game. But this year, the unique selling point is the Battle Mode which is noticeably overhauled. This is a game which will literally make other games have a run for their money.
 
Battle with your friends anytime and anywhere with the definitive version of the Mario Kart 8. Now you can play to a 4-player multiplayer in 1080p while playing in TV mode. In fact, it said to considered by some publication, such as IGN, as the "souped-up version of the Wii U's Mario Kart 8.
 

Mario Kart 8 is the best kart racing game Nintendo has made in a long time. It strikes a careful balance between refining old ideas while introducing fresh new ones. Admittedly, its gorgeous graphics and jazzy orchestrated soundtrack bolster its presentation, but you’re getting a lot more than just looks with this one – although I spent an awful lot of time gawking at the details in slow-motion, the fast and furious pace of racing with friends both locally and online is what really kept me coming back.


Features:
 
  • Race your friends in the definitive version of Mario Kart 8, only on Nintendo Switch!
  • Race as every character on every track from the Wii U version, including DLC characters and tracks.
  • Pop some balloons in the revamped Battle mode, complete with Balloon Battle and Bob-omb Blast.
  • Battle on new courses, like Urchin Underpass and Battle Stadium, or returning ones, such as GCN Luigi's Mansion and SNES Battle Course 1.
  • Inkling Girl & Inkling Boy from Splatoon, King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr. join the roster!
  • Players can choose a new Smart Steering feature which makes driving and staying on the track easy for novice players and kids even at 200cc.
  • Three new vehicles have been added, two are even inspired by Splatoon.
  • Carry two items at the same time.
  • Returning items include Boo, the item stealing ghost, and the Feather, which gives you a high jump in battle mode.
  • Play your friends in local wireless multiplayer with up to 8 players.
  • Drive through in 1080p HD quality in TV mode.
  • Play on the go with handheld mode and play anytime, anywhere.


What do they have to say?

The best racing game yet with innovative game mechanics. It's amazing to play such a beautiful game on a handheld device. It's an incredible leap forward compared to Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS. It's also great that you aren't tied to the TV anymore which was the case with the Wii U version. 10/10.

Instead, it will allow gamers to discover the kingdom of Hyrule In this stunning Open-Air Adventure.

  • Battling enemies requires strategy – The world is inhabited with enemies of all shapes and sizes. Each one has its own attack method and weaponry, so you must think quickly and develop the right strategies to defeat them.
 
  • amiibo compatibility – The Wolf Link amiibo from Twilight Princess HD, the Zelda 30th Anniversary series amiibo, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild series amiibo are all compatible with this game. Tap the Wolf Link amiibo (sold separately) to make Wolf Link appear in the game. Wolf Link will attack enemies on his own and help you find items you’re searching for. Tap a Zelda 30th Anniversary series amiibo to receive helpful in-game items or even a treasure chest!

What do they have to say?
 
Breath of the Wild broke a lot of records in the history of gaming. By that, I mean it is most likely impossible to find one thing wrong with this game. It's like Nintendo took the base of Ocarina of Time and modernize it to make it look like this game over here. This is why Nintendo will forever remain in my heart no matter where it all goes. I'm telling you this, Breath of the Wild has everything... yes, every... single... thing that made Ocarina of Time look like a masterpiece. This is the lost brother of Ocarina of Time and the true brother Ocarina of Time will ever need. Just go buy this game, it wants your money so bad, it wants you to play it so bad, it wants to be your local friend literally bad. I'll be waiting until you get this game.
