Here’s every game you can play on the Nintendo Switch

Why it matters to you

If you’re thinking about purchasing the Nintendo Switch (or already have one), here’s a list of games that are available now, and a glimpse of what’s to come.

The Nintendo Switch finally hit the gaming scene in March 2017 to show that merging mobile with the typical living room console was indeed possible. Costing $300 at launch, the Switch packs a hand-held, tablet-like component, a pair of Joy-Con motion-sensing controllers, a Joy-Con grip for attaching said controllers, wrist straps, and the Nintendo Switch dock. This latter component is what is used to hold the main hand-held console while its connected to an HDTV.

On the games front, prices vary between $5 and $60. To date, we don’t have a slew of first-party titles from Nintendo for the Switch save for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Additional titles like Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey are a few months out. That said, the Switch’s current library is mostly filled by third-party mainstream and indie publishers.

Available right now

For starters, here is everything you can purchase and play on the Nintendo Switch right now from third-party retailers and Nintendo’s eShop digital storefront. It’s a huge lineup, one that’s just three months old and already includes more than 50 physical and digital games.

At the end of this section, we list all 20 classic NeoGeo games ported by SNK to the Switch console. Each game costs $8 on Nintendo’s eShop spanning from the King of Fighters and Metal Slug franchises to stand-alone titles like Fatal Fury, Last Resort, Mark of the Wolves, Blazing Star, Samurai Showdown IV, and loads more.
