The Nintendo Switch is a video game console developed by Nintendo, released on March 3, 2017. It is a hybrid console that can be used as a stationary and portable device. Its wireless Joy-Con controllers, with standard buttons and directional analog sticks for user input, motion sensing, and tactile feedback, can attach to both sides of the console to support handheld-style play. They can also connect to a Grip accessory to provide a traditional home console gamepad form, or be used individually in the hand like the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, supporting local multiplayer modes. The Nintendo Switch's software supports online gaming through Internet connectivity, as well as local wireless ad hoc connectivity with other Switch consoles.
Many games have been developed for the Nintendo Switch that are internet based and/or console based. If you are looking for the top games available for the switch we have eight recommendations listed below.
Many Nintendo switch users also prefer to add a carrying case to organize the console, the controllers and the games to protect them on the go. We recommedn the carrying case below as it is lightweight and durable. Plenty of space to pack the system up for travel.
We would be amiss to not mention Nintendo's most popular platform the Pokemon universe. Pokemon Go was the single biggest hit in the summer of 2017. With the launch of the Switch Nintendo added Pokemon Go Plus allowing new users access to Pokemon Go on the Switch. Nintendo is about to release Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Double Pack which is available for pre-order exclusively on the Switch. It is sure to be a tremendous hit for switch users.
