Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the Switch’s flagship game. Unlike previous Zelda games this is the first to be open world allowing the player to explore the land.
New game mechanics include; beautiful graphics, brand new quests, frightening new monsters. with full character voice acting (a series first). This will make the game a huge hit.

For the first time ever, Mario is heading into the real world, with cars and everything!

It looks like the story is yet to change, Bowser will still capture Princess Peach and you will eventually save her.

Now Mario has new moves, his cap is throwable and acts like a boomerang. Furthermore, the player has more freedom to explore the new world. Mario is the classic Nintendo game, Nintendo Switch owners cannot miss the chance to play this game.




The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

You may be thinking “isn’t this that super popular game that came out 5 years ago?”, yes. “didn’t a HD remaster come out for the Xbox One and PS4 a couple of months ago?”, yes. The reason this is one the Best Nintendo Switch Games 2017 is going to offer you is portability. You can play one of the most addicting games anywhere. Train, car, boat. Now, that is appealing to me.
If you are like me, you lost hours and hours of your life playing Skyrim in your living room. Now you can do it again, in remastered HD anywhere you want. Skyrim had a huge amount of success previously and I am sure the success will repeat and Skyrim will become one of the Best Nintendo Switch Games 2017.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart is one of the best racing franchises ever made. In my opinion, it was the best game on the Wii U. Will this game be even better because it is Deluxe? I hope so.
Nintendo have made some changes to encourage previous owners to buy the game again. The changes are new courses, new characters from Splatoon, new items and the ability to carry 2 items (Double Dash!).
To my excitement BattleMode and 8 player local multiplayer is also back, which makes me even more ecstatic.
Although only a minor update to MK8, I have no doubt that MK8 Deluxe will become one of the Best Nintendo Switch games 2017 has to offer. Playing with 7 other friends will be so much fun in battlemode or race mode.


Splatoon 2

The original Splatoon received surprisingly positive feedback and excellent fan reception. The return to

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2

Nintendo’s squid-themed shooter comes as the competitive scene grows. Although not a lot has changed, the sequel comes with new weapons, gear, maps, music and multiplayer.

The new Joy-Con controller will also bring new ways to play the game.
This game is very Nintendo. Quirky, fun and with unique game mechanics. This is a must buy, if it is just to truly test out the Joy-Con controllers. Especially for any shooter fans like myself.
If like its predecessor, Splatoon 2 is going to be one of the Best Nintendo Switch Games 2017 is going to have.





ARMS gameplay

When I first saw the trailer for this game, I first thought this is Wii Sports boxing on steroids.

Arms is a multiplayer boxing game where the characters have extending arms. The arms are motion controlled, which is a feature that comes with the new Joy-Con controllers. So, all you need a 2 Joy-Con controllers and you can start sending virtual punches at your friends.

Using the Joy-Con controllers players are able to punch, grab, block and dodge. Arms will be one of the first games that we have seen that will really starts to use the Switch’s unique features. However, Joy-Con controllers are not cheap, things will start to get expensive when playing with friends.

Arms looks like a lot of fun, we are excited for this, we think you will enjoy this one as well.


These are just some of the games we are most excited for. We left out the games that don’t have trailers or lack information. Super Smash Bros, Pokemon, Rocket League, Fire Emblem and more all excite the hell out of us.
