What is a console without its games? As novel and versatile as the Nintendo Switch is as a piece of hardware, it’s the software that makes it, and the last two years has seen a steady release of AAA blockbusters, indie darlings, and everything in-between come to the Switch eShop for gamers to enjoy.
The likes of Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2 and Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle all helped the Nintendo Switch make a statement in its first few months on sale, and the games selection has only got better since then. Most recently, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee graced our Nintendo portable to bring us back to the schoolyard days, and Super Smash Bros Ultimate is due out any day now.
All these first-party games are great, and if Nintendo used to have problems getting third-party titles on board, that’s not the case anymore. From the open-world Skyrim and gore-fest Doom to smaller experimental titles like Little Nightmares and Owlboy, the Nintendo platform has blossomed to host a wide array of incredible games.

Well, we’ve done our best to bring together the very best titles to have come to the Switch so far – all of which are available to download or buy right now – that we’re calling the best Nintendo Switch games 2018 … at least for the next month or two.
