Hollow Knight

Top 7 Nintendo Switch Games [2023]

The collection of the top 7 Nintendo Switch Games will be shown in the post below.

1. Luigi’s Mansion 3

Top 7 Nintendo Switch Games [2023] - 1

Luigi’s Mansion 3 is essentially a FrankenLuigistein’s monster mashup of the first two games, a mashup that creates the ultimate Luigi’s Mansion experience. Luigi’s Mansion is 17 levels of pure ghost-hunting delight. It’s charming, intelligent, and extremely stunning to look at. Working your way through each of the haunted hotels will never be difficult, but the inventive boss fights and deviously placed trinkets will keep you entertained for a dozen hours or more. The thrill of reaching a new level only to see its theme (TV Studio! Sewer Maze! Egypt!) is certainly worth the ticket charge, and the game begins with Toad driving a bus.

2. Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope

Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope breaks free from its predecessor’s constraints by ditching grid-based combat in favor of a more freeform, customizable system that retains the tactical sophistication of Kingdom Battle. Outside of combat, Sparks of Hope’s vivid open environments are jam-packed with riddles and painted with a sense of humour befitting of Nintendo and Ubisoft’s oddball collaboration.

3. Splatoon 3

The improved team-based multiplayer in Splatoon 3 makes it the series’ strongest online mode to date, while the addition of a more fleshed-out single-player story lifts it to one of the best overall games available on Switch. Because to additional weaponry, adversaries, customization possibilities, and an upgraded lobby system, the multiplayer improves on Splatoon’s established formula. Meanwhile, the Return of the Mammalians story features 70 carefully crafted missions, five memorable boss fights, and a stylish soundtrack.

4. Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

Xenoblade Chronicles has a lengthy backstory. It forges a direct link to the days of iconic PS1-era RPGs, with a tale from Xenogears director Tetsuya Takahashi and orchestral contributions from Yasunori Mitsuda. Originally launched on the Wii in 2010, it received a major update in 2020 with Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, which we dubbed the “best version of Xenoblade Chronicles we’ve ever had.”

It is still the best game in the series, with the best story without losing the sense of vastness and freedom found in later titles. When it was published on the Wii, Xenoblade Chronicles was a smart, forward-thinking JRPG with a first-class battle system, and it remains one of the best RPGs on the Switch. If you had to choose between Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and its successor, go with the former.

5. Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight is one of the best modern MetroidVania’s available, using all the pieces that make the genre so great in the first place without feeling derivative of anything that came before it.

The expertly crafted map that is the kingdom of Hallownest has an absurd amount of paths to explore, bosses to fight, and secrets to uncover. That’s all drawn in a somber but expressive art style that gives the adorable bug people who live their lives, and stories, of their own. It can undoubtedly be a challenging and demanding game, but what you get out of will be a reward worth far more than you put in.

The sequel, Hollow Knight: Silksong, was supposed to be released in the first half of 2023, but Team Cherry delayed it further due to ongoing development.

6. Link’s Awakening

With its charming, toyetic visual style and bizarrely dark undertones, the vast island of Koholint in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening has never looked better than it does on Nintendo Switch. Link’s shipwrecked adventure on a mysterious island rife with eccentric characters and sprawling dungeons has always been one of the stranger Zelda stories, and this remake allows new audiences and aging fans alike to appreciate it on a modern system. It modernizes the classic beloved Zelda game with a shiny new coat of paint, some excellent quality of life improvements, and loads more hidden collectibles but, ultimately, its greatest accomplishment is retaining the weird, haunting, beautiful feeling of the original Game Boy game.

7. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Formerly the number one Switch game on the list for years, and for good reason, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been de-throned by Tears of the Kingdom. When Nintendo released Breath of the Wild in 2017, it revolutionized not just Zelda games, but open-world action games at large. The number of Breath of the Wild imitators from all kinds of different developers post-2017 were numerous. While Breath of the Wild is still an essential Switch game, and important to play to fully appreciate Tears of the Kingdom, Nintendo’s sequel improves on almost every aspect of Breath of the Wild that it does make going back to the predecessor difficult.
