That’s what makes it special: Not only the transistor’s combat system is well thought-out, but also the story: The action RPG does not present its story to us on a silver platter. Instead, in the course of the adventure, we look for individual fragments ourselves, for example by exploring our surroundings. In this way we develop a very complex, touching and very tragic story piece by piece, which is all the more haunting thanks to the fantastic soundtrack.

This is what makes it special: on your side trips to the gungeon, you unlock countless wacky weapons that, combined with items, conjure up a real firework of effects on the screen. However, in order to progress, to become master of the opponents and bosses of each level, you have to train, train and train again. Enter the Gungeon is really not a game that you just play through on the side.

That’s what’s special: In co-op, the sizzling is particularly recommended and is wonderfully suitable as a party game with screaming potential. In part 2 up to four chefs spoil the broth locally or online, part 1 only offers a local co-op mode.

26th place: Cuphead

  • Genre: Run’n’Gun
  • regular price: 19.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local)

That’s what it’s all about : In Cuphead we hop from one tough boss fight to the next with the cup head of the same name and try to sift through our enemies with our finger pistol. The game is loosened up with equally demanding run’n’gun passages, where every jump and every shot has to be right.

That’s what makes it special: Cuphead lives from a very high level of difficulty, which will demand everything from you. But if you are patient and sneak into the attack patterns of your opponents, you will be rewarded with a wonderful feeling of happiness. The local co-op is also recommended. Player 2 then simply takes on the role of Cuphead’s buddy Mugman. It is well known that two people die best.

Rank 25: Rayman Legends

  • Genre: Jump’n’Run
  • regular price: 39.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local)

This is what it’s all about: In the successor to Rayman Origins, you hop again with the funny propeller man in classic platformer style through colorful 2D levels, collect hidden bits and pieces and can even play all the worlds from the predecessor in a polished version.

That’s what’s special: The great highlight of Rayman Legends are the fantastic music levels. Here you have to jump, slide and swim in rhythm and always avoid the dangers that arise. Due to the terrific soundtrack, these missions are some of the best the genre has to offer.

24th place: Dragon Quest Builders 1 and 2

  • Genre: RPG
  • Regular price: 49.99 dollars (DQB 1), 59.99 dollars (DQB 2)
  • Mode: single player, co-op for DQB 2 (online)

This is what it’s all about : In the Dragon Quest Builders games, we slip into the robe of a builder and use our special skills to save the world by letting our creativity run free.

That’s what’s special: DQB mixes the typical Minecraft principle with the role-playing elements of classic Dragon Quest offshoots. Means: When building, the game takes us by the hand with a story and quests so that we always know what to do. Both parts are recommended, although the successor with new ideas and co-op mode brings even more variety into the game.

23rd place: Stardew Valley

  • Genre: life simulation, RPG
  • regular price: 13.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (online)

That’s what’s special: Thanks to the captivating mix of farming and crafting, Stardew Valley is incredibly addictive and will keep you trapped for hundreds of hours in its charming pixel-farmer world, that’s why we put our pickaxe in the fire!

Place 22: Paper Mario: The Origami King

  • Genre: Action RPG
  • regular price: 60 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: In Paper Mario: The Origami King , the plumber has to face the villain King Olly. The villain captured Princess Peach’s castle with a paper snake and carried it to the top of a remote mountain. He also turned Bowser’s henchmen into cardboard cutouts.

That’s what’s special: Paper Mario for the Switch offers a successful mix of turn-based battles, all kinds of puzzles, mini-games and the usual pinch of humor that we already know from the previous offshoots. The story can also be serious at times, which is surprising.

Rank 21: Octopath Traveler

  • Genre: RPG
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: In the Japanese role-playing game Octopath Traveler, we experience not just one story, but eight. Although we decide on a character at the beginning of the game, in the course of the plot we meet seven other characters whose actions we also experience. Fighting is classic turn-based, but developer Square Enix has come up with some great tricks that give the skirmishes more depth and complexity.

This is what makes it special: after just a quick glance at Octopath Traveler, you will notice that this game is very special. For the look of the JRPG, the developers have combined 16-bit and HD graphics. This gives the pictures depth, on the one hand, but also radiates retro charm.

20th place: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

  • Genre: Turn strategy
  • regular price: 39.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local)

That’s the point: With Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle awaits you a turn-based strategy game a la XCOM, which combines the characters from the Super Mario universe with the cuddly Ubisoft Rabbids. The Donkey Kong Adventure DLC also brings the monkey of the same name into the game, which shakes up the bunnies with new skills.

That’s what’s special: The cuddly look of Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is hugely deceptive: Nobody is touched with kid gloves here, in fact complex and sometimes very crisp round strategy games await us here, in which every move counts.

Nintendo Switch games 2021: release list of all new games

19th place: Darkest Dungeon

  • Genre: RPG
  • regular price: 21.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

This is what it’s about: In Darkest Dungeon you lead a group of warriors into randomly generated dungeons and defend yourself in turn-based battles against all sorts of dark horrors. Outside of the missions you return to your village, upgrade the buildings there like a blacksmith with found resources and thus have the opportunity to continuously improve your warriors in true role-play manner.

That’s what’s special: Similar to the XCOM series, you establish a connection with your characters very quickly. Because every mistake could mean the end of a beloved, powerful hero. Darkest Dungeon relies on Permadeath. However, on the sometimes tough missions you not only have to pay attention to the physical well-being of your group, but also to their state of mind. If you don’t succeed, you have to say goodbye – forever.

  • Genre: Action Adventure
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: Zelda Link’s Awakening is the Switch remake of the 26-year-old original for the Game Boy. After defeating Ganon, Link takes a trip across the sea. A storm gets in his way, his boat sinks and he finds himself on the beach of the mysterious island of Cocolint. To be able to leave the mysterious place again, he has to retrieve eight musical instruments from eight dungeons.

That’s what makes it special: Little has changed in terms of play compared to the original, but neither did the strong template. From a purely visual point of view, however, the remake shines in new splendor and comes with a beautiful diorama look that makes it one of the most unique and beautiful games on the Switch.

17th place: Celeste

  • Genre: Jump’n’Run
  • regular price: 19.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: In the platformer Celeste , you slip into the role of Madeline. The girl wants to climb the eponymous mountain, Mount Celeste, but has to face all sorts of deadly dangers on the way to the summit. The total of eight chapters, and you shouldn’t underestimate that, are anything but a walk in the park and trial & error passages are part of the game system, despite their beautiful retro look. Thanks to the precise control, the game always motivates you to try again.

That’s what makes it special: While most platformers rely on a mostly shallow and cheerful story, Celeste is about self-doubt and depression. But don’t let the difficult topic put you off. Matt Makes Games understand like no other developer how to breathe a story into a platformer that is touching and thought-provoking.

16th place: The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth +

  • Genre: Roguelike
  • regular price: 39.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local)

That’s what it’s all about : If you like roguelikes, you can’t avoid The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + . In the game by Super Meat Boy inventor Edmund McMillen you fight your way through randomly created dungeons, collect items on your way and get stronger and stronger. But if the numerous enemies catch you too often and you die, then it starts all over again.

That’s what makes it special: Hardly any other game has such an enormous replay value as The Binding of Isaac. No run is like the other and if you want to master the game and unlock additional items, characters and levels in the process, it means practice, practice, practice. This is not only extremely motivating, but thanks to the almost perfect game system, it is simply unbelievable fun.

15th place: Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition

  • Genre: RPG
  • regular price: 60 dollars
  • Mode: single player

This is what it’s all about: The action role-playing game from developer Monolith Soft plays on the lifeless bodies of two titans on which a war between man and machine has broken out. Through the truly epic open world, you fight your way in real time, similar to Final Fantasy 12, and experience a gripping story that will tie you to the console for many hours.

This is what makes it special: The JRPG has not only been significantly revised graphically, the operation, in particular of the battle menus, has also been fine-tuned and the music for the Definitive Edition has been remixed. The brand new epilogue called “The Connected Future” is also interesting for old hands.

Place 14: Hollow Knight

  • Genre: Metroidvania
  • regular price: 14.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: In Hollow Knight, you and the eponymous hero explore a dark and shabby world of beetles, whose secrets you get to the bottom of in the finest Metroidvania manner. In the wonderfully atmospheric comic book world there is not only a lot to discover, you also have to defend yourself against numerous small and large evils in the form of bosses.

That’s what makes it special: Hardly any other game in the genre comes close to the outstanding world design of Hollow Knight. Over dozens of hours you will always discover new things that are extremely motivating – unless the tough bosses don’t let you pass. Because that said, don’t be fooled by the exterior of the game. Hollow Knight is a really tough nut to crack.

Rank 13: Into the Breach

  • Genre: Turn strategy
  • regular price: 14.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: In the new game from FTL creators Subset Games, you control powerful mechs in turn-based, isometric battles to fend off an alien threat called Vec. At the start of each round, you choose a team of combat robots and go on randomly generated missions. In the style of a roguelike with permadeath, you have to start all over again in the event of your death, but unlock ever better mechs and their abilities.

That’s what’s special: At first glance, Into the Breach with its rather simple retro graphics may seem daunting for many players. However, if you like turn-based strategy, you can’t avoid the tricky tactical indie.

Rank 12: Dragon Quest 11 p

Dragon Quest 11 is one of the best JRPGs of all time.
Dragon Quest 11 is one of the best JRPGs of all time.
  • Genre: RPG
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • USK: from 12 years
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: With Dragon Quest 11 S, you can play one of the best JRPGs of the past decade on the Switch, which we like to describe with the word “oldschool”. So the role-playing game not only comes with a traditional, turn-based combat system, but also offers a fairly linear story that will keep you on the console for up to 100 hours.

That’s what’s special: An improved version of Dragon Quest 11 has appeared on the Switch, in which you can, among other things, experience the entire game in 16-bit mode. In addition, numerous other innovations came into play. Among other things, you can complete side missions in the worlds of old Dragon Quest adventures in the form of small mini-games, dynamically adjust the battle speed and now also craft at any time. None of that was previously in the PS4 version.

11th place: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

  • Genre: RPG
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

This is what it’s all about: In the action RPG The Witcher 3 , witcher Geralt goes in search of his missing foster daughter Ciri and at the same time has to cope with the dark wild hunt that is targeting the young woman. You need prior knowledge from the predecessors to understand not necessarily the story.

That’s what’s special: the Switch version can’t quite keep up with the versions for PS4, Xbox One and PC, both technically and optically, but the bottom line is that it turns out to be an impressive port that arouses the same adventure feeling as the original. If you want to split griffins, ghouls and drowned people with the sword in handheld mode, you will definitely be happy with this.

Rank 10: Ori and the Will of the Wisps

  • Genre: Metroidvania
  • regular price: 30 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about : Forest spirit Ori and his owl friend Ku crash over the mysterious Niwen area. The two are separated from each other and the subsequent search for Ku soon becomes a much bigger adventure.

That’s what makes it special: Ori and the Will of the Wisps does the trick of eliminating the most important criticisms of the already grandiose predecessor and thus becomes an even greater total work of art than Ori and the Blind Forest. For example, the fights now feel a lot better, the upgrade system looks more elegant and the game structure also offers more variety with side missions and smaller tasks.

9th place: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the ultimate version of the popular beat'em up.

That’s what makes it special: The “Ultimate” in the name is no accident. On over 100 stages you duel with other players either in story mode or online / locally and have the choice of over 70 fighters, each with their own skills, strengths and weaknesses.

8th place: Super Mario Maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2 combines fun and creativity.
Super Mario Maker 2 combines fun and creativity.
  • Genre: Jump’n’Run
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local, online)

This is what it’s about: While we know Mario games for their single player campaigns, the story here plays only a minor role. Like its predecessor, Super Mario Maker 2 gives you all the freedom to either build your own levels with a powerful editor or master the creations of other hobbyists.

That’s what makes it special: Clearly the incredibly creative Mario Maker community, which sends you on ever new fun, creative or tough missions – if you want. You can either play alone or with up to four friends in multiplayer. You can also play comfortably on the couch with friends.

7th place: Fire Emblem Three Houses

  • Genre: Turn strategy, RPG
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

This is what it’s all about Fire Emblem Three Houses is one of the best Switch RPGs out there and belongs in the library of every fan of turn-based strategy games: Three Houses makes us teachers at a military academy. We choose one of three different houses, train our characters and send them into complex tactical battles.

That’s what’s special: Of course, we don’t just knock our swords and lances around our ears, but also pursue social activities: between battles we get to know our heroes better, invite them to tea and do special quests so that they can help us really grow dear to the heart over time. It is all the worse if you give up the ghost forever in permadeath mode (this is an optional, but recommended).

6th place: Pokémon sword and shield

  • Genre: RPG
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (online)

This is what it’s all about: In the 8th main offshoot in the series, we travel to the British-themed Galar region as Pokémon trainers to fight for the champ title and to catch all the new and old pocket monsters that the Pokédex has to offer. As always, the new part is divided into two editions with exclusive Pokémon, trainers and more.

That’s what’s special: Sword and shield shines with new ideas that give the old Pokémon formula a breath of fresh air: In the natural zone, for example, we roam through a huge open world area for the first time, catch Pokémon there and fight together with other players in raids. The Dynamax feature also allows our monsters to become huge and reveals new possibilities in combat.

5th place: Hades

  • Genre: Action, Roguelite
  • regular price: 25 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: In the new game from the Bastion and transistor makers Supergiant Games, you try to escape the underworld of Greek mythology with hero Zagreus. You fight your way in Diablo-style from a bird’s eye view action-packed through procedurally generated levels, as you are used to from roguelites – permadeath included.

That’s what’s special: The action game is one of the most motivating roguelites, because not only does every run play differently and you can always improve the hero of Zagreus, but Hades also inspires with a fun story. The enormously high motivation spiral, the fun and varied combat system and a story that is unusually successful for the genre make Hades one of the best games for the Switch.

4th place: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

  • Genre: fun racer
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local + online)

That’s what it’s all about: Mario Kart 8 was originally released for Wii U, but is also available in an improved deluxe edition for Switch. In the Racer you speed down the slopes with Mario, Luigi and many other characters from the Mario (and Nintendo) universe, drift around the curves and prevent your opponents from winning with banana peels and the like.

That’s what’s special: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the most extensive Mario Kart ever. It contains all 48 tracks and 37 drivers that existed in the original game and the two DLCs. In addition, the paddock has a total of five newcomers (42 total). The controls work wonderfully with both the Joy-Cons and the Pro Controller, are easy to learn and difficult to master. Definitely the best version of an already great fun racer.

3rd place: Animal Crossing: New Horizons

  • Genre: life simulation
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local + online)

That’s what it’s all about: In Animal Crossing: New Horizons you take on the role of a resident who moves to an island village with two other animals. In order to earn money or sternis, you have to do one thing in the first place: craft what you can. In this way, you can not only fulfill your dream of a neat home, make your new home bit by bit more homely, and over time, new companions will come to the island.

That’s what’s special: Animal Crossing is pure deceleration and relaxation. Everything is good on your island and nobody can harm you. The pace of the game and what you do on your island is entirely up to you. The life simulation also runs in real time. If a new store opens the next day, then you really have to wait until the next real morning.

2nd place: Super Mario Odyssey

  • Genre: Jump & Run
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player, co-op (local + online)

That’s what it’s all about: In Super Mario Odyssey, the plumber hops on the switch and travels with his hat buddy Cappy to a wide variety of 3D levels, including deserts or a replica of New York City.

That’s what’s special: The big crux of the game lies in Cappy himself and reveals a number of creative gameplay ideas: if Mario throws his hat at opponents, he assumes their skills. In Hutland it starts quite leisurely, as we can jump particularly high in a frog’s body and ultimately reach the next world as a spark (!) Via a power line. We take our hat off to that!

1st place: Zelda: Breath of the Wild

  • Genre: Action Adventure
  • regular price: 59.99 dollars
  • Mode: single player

That’s what it’s all about: Zelda Breath of the Wild throws us into the sprawling open world of Hyrule, which has been subjugated by the gloomy Ganon. In order to bring the villain to his knees, we have to bring four titans to life, fight against all kinds of monsters and solve clever puzzles in shrines that are spread all over the world.

That’s what’s special: In Breath of the Wild, the word freedom is capitalized. Because unlike many other open world titles, Zelda deliberately lets us on a long leash and explore the game world ourselves and experiment with it. Here every tree, every rock is not just a backdrop, but an important part of the game mechanics, which, like no other game, arouses creativity and the desire to discover.

That was our Top 40. Please write us in the comments what your ranking looks like.
