While most gamers know Nintendo Switch as a console to play exclusive Nintendo titles such as Super Mario Odyssey or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, hardware has plenty more to offer. Nintendo Switch games come in various shapes and forms and the most enjoyable ones are designed for more than a single person. Today we’re listing 5 awesome titles that you can play on Nintendo Switch with your friends.
1. Rocket League
Did you know that one of the best co-op games of all time which is Rocket League is also released on Nintendo Switch? If you have a party of four players hop on and enjoy the thrill of this arcade-style football. It’s a perfect pick for any party since matches are very short and you don’t need much skill to start playing. However, Rocket League has a high skill ceiling, so the most skilled players will be able to enjoy the game as well.
2. Overcooked 2
No list of co-op games would be complete without Overcooked 2. This might be one of the best Nintendo Switch games if you want something to play on a shared screen. Everything in Overcooked 2 happens on a single screen, meaning you won’t have to deal with annoying split-screen modes where you view is limited. Same as Rocket League, Overcooked 2 is not a Nintendo Switch exclusive, however, Nintendo’s console might be suited best for the title.
3. Super Mario Party
It’s about time to talk about Nintendo Switch games that are console exclusive. One notable and recent addition to the catalog was Super Mario Party. It’s not a single game but many games in one. With a total sum of 80 minigames, the title will guarantee plenty of different experiences supporting up to 4 players.
4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
We know that sometimes all you want to do is to beat the crap out of each other. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate might be one of the best out of all Nintendo Switch games to accomplish just that. The game features over 70 different characters from various Nintendo titles and hundreds of ways to play them by adjusting the rules of each match. A definite must-have in your collection if you like to play fighting games with your friends.
5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
We’re wrapping up our list of the best Nintendo Switch games to play with friends, and we wouldn’t forgive ourselves without adding Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It’s a traditional kart racing with some unique twists. While the game features 48 unique tracks to race on it also has some other game modes as well. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe features 5 battle modes, focusing on battles in arena-like tracks. A great pick for a group of friends who loves racing!
