Here is our personal selection dedicated to the most important exclusives available on Nintendo Switch. There is no doubt that Nintendo Switch is a somewhat revolutionary console, thanks to its hybrid nature that has allowed millions of players to have fun anywhere, no matter if on the move or on the home TV screen.
Nintendo Switch, The Ten Best Exclusives of the Hybrid Console
The success of this console has also come thanks to numerous quality exclusives that in recent years have helped Nintendo establish itself in the gaming sector.
But what are these exclusive games that have allowed Nintendo Switch to stand up to better performing consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? We have selected ten, the ones that in our opinion every owner of the hybrid console should play at least once in a lifetime.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Inevitable. It is unthinkable to own Nintendo Switch and never to have played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild , a game that requires no instructions and that never stops teaching us how to play.
This incredible Link adventure is like an endless journey that takes players on one of the most beautiful and intense experiences on Nintendo Switch that you will ever discover.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
The perfect game to be played alone or in good company. Fun and challenging from the very first race, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a game that never gets old and never tires. He can be tough but always fun; every challenge that is put before you, if not overcome at the first attempt, manages to bring out its competitive side from each player.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is immensely varied, full of content to unlock and customization options to try depending on your driving and playing style.
The last game and then I’ll quit. It doesn’t matter if you are engaged in online battles or cooperative challenges, breaking away from a game like Splatoon 2 is really difficult.
The continuous search for the perfect game, a revenge, or the unlocking of a new one pushes us to never give up this fun exclusive and characterized by a frenetic and immediate gameplay.
Super Mario Maker 2
The original Mario Maker for Wii U had been a killer application for the unfortunate Nintendo console, it was therefore inevitable that a worthy successor of this title would see the light on Nintendo Switch.
And that’s how players around the world can challenge each other to create and play hundreds of thousands of levels designed daily in this new ecosystem that transforms the player into a level creator. It’s no longer just about running and jumping across worlds to free unrecognizable princesses in Super Mario Maker 2. You can present your creations to the whole world.
We then move at will from the creation to the game phase depending on our creativity and our time, in a container that is continuously filled with news of all kinds such as levels, bonuses, characters and modes.
Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield
The Pokémon. We have always been used to having them with us, on our small portable consoles, but thanks to Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield on Nintendo Switch this new adventure is great in all senses, especially as regards their new giant transformations, with the Dynamax phenomenon will prove crucial in this new adventure!
There will be fantastic places to explore such as forests, plains, mountains, caves, cities and villages and secret places where to catch, train and make our Pokémon fight each other, to become once again the strongest trainers in the Galar region! Ready to get involved by challenging the gym leaders and collecting medals to get to the coveted Pokémon League?
Luigi’s Mansion 3
Luigi shows that when he is called into the protagonist, he can definitely do it. It’s been a long time since the first episode of Luigi’s Mansion on GameCube and, after a second chapter for Nintendo 3DS, here it is back with Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Switch bringing with it a load of novelties, a new well-written storyline, new online modes and a level design never boring and full of surprises.
Super Mario Odyssey
Each Super Mario title is in its own way a must have for Nintendo console owners, regardless of the model. Not least is Super Mario Odyssey , where the world’s most famous mustachioed plumber will travel through colorful and incredible three-dimensional worlds in the company of his trusty Cappy cap.
Infinite, unfailing, essential and free. These adjectives are enough to describe Tetris 99 for Nintendo Switch. In this special version of one of the best-selling games of all time you will have to compete with 99 other players, and you will have to prove that you are clever and quick in positioning your tetramini.
In no time, this sort of battle royale in Tetris sauce has become one of the funniest games available on Nintendo Switch. What are you waiting for to download it?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a constantly evolving title, constantly updated with new characters, scenarios, music and more. Currently the fighting game has a roster of 75 fighters and more than 100 arenas in which to have fun experimenting with your secret techniques against your human and computer-guided opponents.
As if that wasn’t enough there are dozens of different modes, including VR if you own a Toy-Con VR headset.
The Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
Mentioned by many as one of the best titles in the hit saga of The Legend of Zelda, Link’s Awakening has often been considered (unfairly) as a “minor” episode due to the fact that it came first on Game Boy, but the huge success pushed Nintendo to publish it also for Game Boy Color.
However, the warmth shown by fans towards this title has prompted Nintendo that, twenty-six years later, has made a conversion completely adapted for Nintendo Switch, which has proved to be another inevitable title for owners of the hybrid console, both for those who have played to the original title and for those who have never done it.
