TOP 10 Nintendo Switch Kids Games

10. Splatoon 2

A multiplayer FPS game that’s suitable for kids and not insufferable like Fortnite - whodathunkit?
Splatoon 2 definitely fits the bill, replacing blood and gore with vibrant paint without scrimping on the excitement and addictive gameplay. It takes the formula of its predecessor and builds on it with the inclusion of a single-player campaign as well as a smorgasbord of new multiplayer modes. Whether your flying solo or squadding up, you’re bound to have a good time!

9. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The most complete, immersive and downright best Animal Crossing game to date, playing New Horizons is a joyous experience. There’s so much to see, do and explore as you help build your new home town, and it’s easy to lose several blissful hours doing jobs that would seem mundane in the real world. But such is the magic of Animal Crossing, even the every day is made to feel pleasant. 

8. New Pokémon Snap

After a 22-year gap, New Pokémon Snap brings the cult series back in grand fashion. The on-rails nature photography game will have you squealing with glee, as you capture shots of everyone’s favourite pocket monsters in their natural environment. Seeing everything at ground level and in first person is an absolute delight, and with a greater emphasis on narrative this time around, it’s easy to lose hours in this enchanting world. 

7. Pokémon Let’s GO

The latest entry in the much-loved franchise takes us back to where it all started, yes that’s right the mean streets of the Kanto Region, where you can now retread the maps of Pokémon Red and Blue in glorious high definition. All of the original 150 odd Pokémon can be found in Let’s GO, as well as their thousands of moves, their stats and their evolutions. 

6. Pikmin 3 Deluxe

The third entry in the delightfully quirky series, Pikmin 3 Deluxe is an RTS, in which you control three interplanetary explorers looking for food to sustain their starving world. They, in turn, control plant-like beings called Pikmin, who help you as you search for items and avoid being eaten by native beasties. The deluxe edition adds some equally fantastic content and small quality of life updates to ensure there’s enough to please new and old fans alike. If you’re looking for the perfect balance between action, strategy, pressure and fun, look no further.

5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The king of the kart racers, nothing comes close to Mario Kart on the Switch. With the near-perfect balance between pick-up-and-playability and challenge, MK8D truly does cater for everyone. Whether entertaining your grandparents or duking it out with the best online, you’ll find a satisfying experience no matter what you’re looking for. 

4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo has been perfecting their Smash Bros series for the past 2 decades, an effort that culminates with the near-obnoxiously good Super Smash Bros Ultimate. The fighting/party game boasts one of the best rosters of characters found in any game ever, ranging from Pikachu to Solid Snake to Sonic and even the Wii Fit Trainer (because why not?), and each character feels unique, with a deep move set and individual play style.

3. Mario Odyssey

Mario Odyssey is a belter! Rather than resting on its laurels, Nintendo takes their moustachioed mascot and freshens him up in a new direction; new worlds, new mechanics and new challenges make playing it an absolute delight and a testament to the company’s expertise in game design.  

2. Super Mario Maker 2

The perfect game for inquisitive young minds, Super Mario Maker 2 blends entertaining gameplay while encouraging boundless creativity. This iteration doesn’t change the winning formula of its predecessor too much, after all, there’s a certain satisfaction achieved from building your dream level that can’t be replicated by any other type of game.

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - there aren’t enough superlatives to describe how good this game is. Never have we played an open-world game that’s so immersive, so deep and just so gosh darn fun to play. Every aspect of the game is flawless, and the fact it works on a tablet is nothing short of witchcraft. Trust us, it’s worth buying a Switch for this game alone.
