The Nintendo Switch has had a lot of success in the five years since its release. The console-handheld hybrid has been on the market since 2017, and a slew of promising ports in the first few months of that year gave early adopters a healthy diet of new titles to enjoy. Big first-party exclusives helped build the system’s success early on, though that momentum slowed in 2020 and 2021 with a lighter release schedule. Things picked up eventually, though, thanks to hits like Metroid Dread, Pokémon Legends Arceus, and Kirby and the Forgotten Land. Plus, there’s an all-new Switch model out now that features a better OLED screen and a few bells and whistles.
There are plenty of other games to enjoy on the Switch right now. Some recent highlights include Shin Megami Tensei V and Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. This list of the best Nintendo Switch games also includes the best free Switch games for those players on a budget.
