Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Although the Nintendo Switch only has a few games, one of them happens to be one of the best reviewed titles of 2017.
Breath of the Wild is the biggest Zelda game to date and is a wonderful experience for old and new fans of the series.
The cel-shaded graphics are just beautiful. We love venturing out into the magical world of Hyrule, with its vast fields, towers, mountain peaks and breath taking landscapes. Along the way you’ll fight enemies of all shapes and sizes to complete quests.
Right now, Breath of the Wild is the Nintendo Switch’s flagship game.Shop now on Amazon
1-2 Switch is a collection of mini games that makes use of the Nintendo Switch’s Joy Con controllers.
You’ll compete with other players in games involving catching swords, casting spells, eating as many sandwiches as possible and milking cows.
1-2 Switch is great for parties and family get-togethers.Shop now on Simply Games
Snipperclips is a fun game that’s a great co-op experience. If you liked Tearaway on the PlayStation 4, then you’ll love Snipperclips.
The game sees you and a partner control a pair of colourful, paper chracters called Snip and Clip. They use the form of their arched bodies to snip each other into the shapes needed to solve a variety of puzzles and overcome obstacles.
It’s not the longest game but played with a friend, Snipperclips is an absolute blast to play and pretty cheap at £16.99.Shop now on Amazon
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Although Mario Kart 8 was already out on the Wii U, we think it’s the best entry in its series and well worth buying the upgraded version for the Nintendo Switch.
There are plenty of additions to make buying the deluxe edition of Mario Kart 8: courses and new characters from Splatoon and elsewhere, the return of Battle Mode, all of the original game’s DLC, and eight-player local multiplayer.
If you’re planning on getting Mario Kart in May, you may want to get a pair of Joy Con wheels for £13.99Shop now on Amazon
We loved the first Splatoon game on the Wii U. It was a very ‘Nintendo’ take on a shooter game which sees teams battle in an arena, though instead of firing bullets you fire ink.
Eventually you’ll cover the whole arena and the team with the most ink wins, giving you advantages like faster travel and refilling your ammo as you go.
Splatoon 2 looks like more of the same with traditional 4-on-4 turf battles returning but with new stages, new fashions and new weapons such as the two-handed Splat Dualies. We can’t wait!Shop now on Amazon
