Nintendo Switch

Diablo. Seriously if you bought a Switch and just had that it would be worth it.

Dark Souls works fine handheld. That, Mario Kart 8, Dragon Quest XI/Builders 2, Zelda BotW and Divinity Original Sin 2 would be my must haves.

I played Diablo 3 on PC more than enough (I know), so I am done with it. Really, no regrets.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

Ha, that’s what I thought! Diablo on Switch is still must have!

Slay the Spire is really awesome for Switch. Great little deck builder you can easily get addicted to

Mmm, let’s see.

Astral Chain works very well handheld.
Valkyria Chronicles 4 is really good.
Fire Emblem is less of a dating sim than previous installments (although it still has some components of that)

Other than the ones you mention:

Hollow Knight is a modern classic (though people are put off by its difficulty/length)
Mario Odyssey is good.
Bayonetta 2
They are about to release Dragon Quest XI
If you like fighting game, Dragon Ball FighterZ

Into The Breach - I played it on PC until I beat it with one team, but did not play other teams. I always thought it belongs into a handheld …

nobody playing Tetris 99?

Tetris 99 is great. It’s free with Switch Online though so that’s probably why it doesn’t get discussed much here.

Wii fit + rpg

(plus slightly phsycotic looking male host)

Make sure your defense is ab-solute!

They both look like indoctrinated wackos from a terrifying cult.

Hosts aside, it looks like fun! It’s less about balance and more about motion than the Balance Board and if the adventure game is of Nintendo quality, then that’s probably going to be a fun playthrough.


…and there’s the headline they were looking for…

Ring Fit Adventure is the first fitness-focused game I’ve ever played with an actual story. You play as a hero dressed like a gym rat, and you partner up with a sentient ring named Ring to fight off an incredibly swole purple dragon in a leotard, who is infecting the fantasy realm with darkness. (Nintendo says that the dragon was designed to represent the negative aspects of gym culture, like ultra competitiveness. In other words, he’s a fantastical bro.) The experience is structured sort of like a Super Mario game, as you go through a series of levels spread across different settings, punctuated by boss battles.



A Nintendo rep told me that if you played for an hour a day, it’d take between three to four months to finish the campaign.

That’s a serious RPG!

Breath of the wilds is a must own title for the switch… not sure if anyone said that, since we’re talking about another zelda game, but BoTW is one of the best games ever made.

He said he played it on Wii U, so really no need to get it on Switch.

I think Golf Story might still be my favorite Switch game.

The Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure™ looks perfect to bring up to my hipster rooftop parties.

This looks interesting.

That looks really cool, but at this point I’m wary, since games like that always tend to be a disappointment thus far.

If you’re not opposed to platformers, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze is excellent, assuming you did not play it on Wii U. As mentioned, Mario Odyssey is great too. Both work well enough in handheld mode.

Golf Story is also solid. Even if you have no interest in golf.
