      Right, I have bit the bullet and treated myself to a switch. I bought it with Luigi’s mansion 3 and also Mario kart 8 Deluxe.

      I have my eye on Mario odyssey and Super Smash Brothers but what am wanting to know from the community is what games would you recommend to get on the system?


        My first recommendations are…

        Super Mario Maker 2

        Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of An Elusive Age

        Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (and if you play it and enjoy it, consider Fire Emblem Warriors as well)

        Fire Emblem: Three Houses

        Pokken Tournament DX


          All you and Scuttlest mentioned are good, I also would recommend: (as with everything, check gameplay on Youtube to see if it’s for you)

          The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

          Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition

          Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (+ Torna The Golden Country Add on)

          Bayonetta 2 (physical comes with a code for Bayonetta 1)

          Astral Chain

          Deadly Premonition Origins (if you never played the original)

          Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered

          Octopath Traveler

          Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition

          Collection of Mana (contains Final Fantasy Adventure/Mystic Quest, Secret of Mana and Trials of Mana/Secret of Mana 2)

          Animal Crossing: New Horizons

          and for next month:

          The Wonderful 101 Remastered

          Deadly Premonition 2


          There are quite a few good games for the switch, here are some I recommend.
