The Nintendo universe has always attracted countless fans. And the console gave us some little nuggets in 2022, which is why we prepared a small list of the best Switch games to give in 2023.
[Mis à jour le 20 décembre 2022 à 16h22] Since its release in 2017, the Nintendo Switch has made a name for itself in French homes. Attractive through its unique hybrid console formula, but also and above all through its catalog of family games and multiple licenses, the Switch has a very good argument to always survive against a new generation of consoles that manages to compete with the best PCs of the moment.. If you own the Nintendo Switch and want to expand your catalog of games, or just give a wonderful gift to a loved one, here is the list of the best Switch game according to our editorial team.
5 – Kirby and the Forgotten World
To start this list, what could be better than a small, completely classic platform game using the codes of a venerable license in the history of video games? Kirby and the Forgotten World is the latest creation from the HAL Laboratory studio, and puts you in the shoes of the unforgettable little pink ball for a 3D adventure, with platform game elements. Sold at least 5.2 million times since its release in March 2022, it remains a safe bet if you want to immerse yourself in an unpretentious adventure suitable for the whole family.
4 – Mario and the Rabbids: Sparks of Hope
Developed by Ubisoft, Mario and the Rabbids: Sparks of Hope is a turn-based exploration and action game that has been making a mark since its release in October. Second volume of the popular crossover between the world of our favorite plumber, and the (yes) crazy leporidae, it offers you a wonderful adventure, to be done alone or with two players, to save the galaxy from a demonic being. You will find all the most popular characters from the Mario universe as well as a great way to spend quality time with your family.
3 – Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple
The ninth generation of Pokémon games has arrived! After the rather disappointing Pokémon Arceus in January 2022, The Pokémon Company had to raise the bar with the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Purple. These two new releases allow you to reconnect with the essence of the Pokémon license while benefiting from many improvements that greatly refresh a gameplay that has been seen and analyzed. Add to that the opportunity to share adventures with up to four players, and the more traditional opportunity to trade your Pokémon collection, and you have two extremely solid games that will appeal to all fans of the license.
2 – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
It’s hard to list the best Nintendo Switch games without mentioning The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This masterpiece, available since the release of the console in March 2017, has allowed many players to rediscover the world of Zelda games in an open-world that is as beautiful and attractive. Sure, the game is almost five years old, but it’s probably stayed on the top step of the Nintendo Switch gaming podium ever since. Moreover, its sequel is scheduled for the second quarter of 2023, so what better than to dive back into this very ambitious adventure to warm your memory a little?
1 – Bayonetta 3
The style of the Bayonetta games is particular, we can agree, but the quality of Bayonetta 3 compels us to crown it the top Nintendo Switch game. Bayonetta 3 is a beat’em’all, action-packed game that doesn’t skimp on grand effects and epic scenes. Rightly crowned by the press when it was released in October, it is for our editorial staff the most important game of 2022 on the Nintendo Switch. With its engaging story, colorful characters and its highly enjoyable gameplay, it lives up to its excellent predecessors and makes a less traditional, and very nice gift.
