These are all the Nintendo Switch games with console and PC crossplay support

Switch cross-play

The Nintendo Switch is surging two years after its launch. With record-breaking sales, a smattering of excellent exclusives, and a massive library of wonderful indies, the Switch has become quite the juggernaut. Online multiplayer hasn’t quite gotten on the same level as the PS4 and Xbox One. Even with its dedicated Nintendo Switch Online subscription program, the Switch still lags behind the competition online. The install base, however, is huge, making it a great place to play online games, even if the infrastructure isn’t as feature rich. Additionally, a growing number of games feature cross-play support with Xbox One, PS4, PC, and sometimes even mobile. That means you can game on the go against even larger player bases with Switch cross-play.

Here are all the Switch games with cross-platform multiplayer support.
