But there’s more than just the astonishing Breath of the Wild to enjoy on Nintendo’s home-or-handheld device, and thanks to a mix of ports and sterling new games, the Switch has a rather appealing lineup after just a few months since its release.
So whether you’ve just grabbed the Switch and need a few pointers, or are you just looking for something new to play after conquering Zelda, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in our list of the 15 best games the Switch has to offer.
We’ve recommended both previous Nintendo versions of Shovel Knight, but we can’t help but do it again with the amazing Switch rendition. In case you’ve missed it, Shovel Knight is a pitch-perfect homage to 8-bit, 2D action games, only now you’re a metal-clad warrior with a rather effective gardening tool.
Treasure Trove is the ultimate edition of the game, not only giving you the original quest but also the Plague of Shadows and Specter of Torment expansions, each with a brand new campaign starring another character. You’ll also get another campaign in the future. And if you already have Shovel Knight elsewhere, at least you can buy Specter of Torment (shown) solo on Switch.
