The Absolute Best AAA Games For Nintendo Switch For 2019
Almost everyone in the world knows the name Nintendo, and their Wii console attracted the attention of both young people and older folks. Now, Nintendo Switch has been so successful that AAA creators worked tirelessly to get their video games out there. Here are some of the best games found on Switch right now, so be sure to check them out!
1. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
‘Skyrim’ can be found in almost every game console out there, and that’s awesome because it’s definitely one of the greatest inventions in the world of gaming. Having it in your pocket is even more fun, although its graphics were downgraded from the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
However, that was a great decision because users are able to play this classic RPG game anywhere they want. There are magic quests and lots of adventures to be found in this medieval land, and you could spend hours playing without getting bored.
2. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
While it was definitely more successful on traditional consoles, having this game in a tiny version changed the world of AAA. Of course, having to kill Nazis is not precisely a family-friendly game, and what makes it even better is that the Switch version is even deadlier.
There are larger, more complex stories, and the development of the character is incredibly satisfying. The fight sequences are far more complicated, and the rest of his origin can be crazy but believable at the same time. It proves that Switch is ready for a great future.
3. Pokémon: Let’s Go
Game Freak has launched a myriad of Pokémon games over the years like ‘Fire Red’, ‘Heartgold’, and ‘Omega Ruby’. Luckily, no one ever gets tired of playing them, and now ‘Let’s Go’ is the Switch edition of 'Pokémon Yellow'. It also includes an Eevee!
The studio learned from the major hit of ‘Pokémon Go’ and changed this game accordingly, adding a bunch of features that will impress users. There are many beautiful monsters to catch as well as a storyline to follow that differs from other Pokémon games.
4. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
One of the great things about Nintendo is that they understood that people would get tired of the same game even if the publishing company released it with another name. Eight games and several years later, ‘Mario Kart’ is still just as relevant as when it was first launched.
They give gameplay enough differences that people still enjoy it, but remains true to what it has always been. Just like ‘Super Mario’, this one keeps at heart its same values and fun aspects that will have kids and older people still playing.
5. Bayonetta 2
Japan knows campy more than most, as they have proven with ‘JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’, ‘Fist of the North Star, and ‘The Yakuza’. ‘Bayonetta’ follows that example with insane storylines that are only there to entertain people while also including great battle scenes.
The characters all follow stereotypes which makes even more humorous, and anyone can become addicted while playing alone. Nintendo had initially licensed it for Wii U, but the console was not successful, so it’s great that they kept it for Switch.
6. Octopath Traveler
While this might look like an indie release, the company that published it is actually huge, and it shows in the fantastic graphics that the game depicts. They mixed water effects with lighting while adding 2D pixel sprites to make one of the best animated sequences ever seen.
It’s similar to SNES RPGs like ‘Final Fantasy VI’, so old-school fans will definitely appreciate it. There are eight characters whose different stories are interconnected, and eventually, it leads into battling with magic and swords.
7. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
‘Smash Bros’ has changed over the years to make it bigger and better, and fans have not been disappointed yet. ‘Ultimate’ is an amazing experience for those who have played since they were children.
They changed some controls and the fighting style while making the battle roster bigger. Players can decide on a strategy to defeat their opponents, and it’s equally fun to play alone as it is with family. There are even people who play it to become ‘Smash’ e-sports champions.
8. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
Sadly, unlike other games, this one has suffered with different consoles over the years, but Nintendo has brought it back for ‘Tropical Freeze’, refusing to let 2D platformers disappear, and this one is the best one made in years.
There is some level of difficulty, but it’s amazingly designed, and every enemy or platform conforms to the theme of the level like a forest, desert or ice land. If you are still a fan of ‘Crash Bandicoot’, you’ll appreciate this creative one too.
9. The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
‘Zelda’ really needed something to give it new life, even though it was not necessarily failing. Sometimes, you just need something to make it fresh again. Just like ‘Minecraft’, they added an open-world design in which the users are placed on land and have to face some challenges.
‘Breath of the Wild’ is also a new take on the trend of open-world games which was getting tired and repetitive. Nintendo enlisted Ubisoft and Bethesda to make this game great, and they definitely got it right!
10. Super Mario Odyssey
It’s no secret that Mario has dominated the world of video games for more than 30 years, especially mascot platformers. Although versions like ‘Sunshine’ and ‘3D World’ had different features that made the game interesting, ‘Odyssey’ relies on the originally “jumping” to make the plumber go.
Players are supposed to use the most straightforward method possible to overcome the creative setting and have fun as it was always meant to be. The game celebrates the best of Mario in exciting new ways, and having it on Switch is just another perk.
