In this article, we have compiled a list of 13 top Nintendo Switch games for kids. Get the most out of Nintendo Switch with these 14 game-changing titles.

1. Super Mario Odyssey

Super Mario Odyssey is a 3D platformer that follows the adventures of Mario, who travels to different worlds in his hat. The game features a new companion named Cappy and allows players to throw him at enemies and objects in order to take control of them. Players can also use Cappy as weapon against enemies, or simply grab it for an extra boost when running along ledges or jumping over obstacles.

2. Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is a third-person shooter game. You can play as an Inkling, a kid who can turn into a squid, and use their special ability to swim faster through ink than anyone else. The game has four-on-four matches online or against AI opponents in single-player mode.

3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a racing game for the Nintendo Switch. It has 48 tracks, including 16 new ones and two battle modes.

The game also includes power slides, jumps, and tricks that will make you feel like you’re playing a real-life version of Mario Kart in your living room. There are also two new characters—Dry Bones from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Isabelle (from Animal Crossing) as well as Wario from Super Mario World!

4. Pokemon Shield

Pokemon Shield is a good value for the money. It has a lot of content, including almost 500 Pokemon, which can be captured and traded in-game or through the Nintendo Switch Online service. The gameplay is fun, with players able to battle against each other via online multiplayer or locally with friends and family members (up to four people). There are also over 100 stages that have been created by the developers themselves—allowing you to play unique levels based on your favorite pokémon!

5. Pokemon Sword

Pokemon Sword is the latest entry in the Pokémon series. It’s a turn-based RPG that has been released on the Nintendo Switch and it’s full of fun, new characters, and settings to explore.

The player can choose their own character from one of three regions: Kanto (the region where we first met Pikachu), Johto (the region where Ash met his first rival), or Hoenn (home to our old friend Gary). Each region has its own storyline with different events happening throughout them depending on where you start your journey as well as how far along you get through it.

6. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an open-world adventure game set in a fantasy world. You play as Link, who must save Princess Zelda from Ganon (the main antagonist). The gameplay is similar to previous Zelda games, but it has some important differences. For example, you can now ride animals and use their abilities to solve puzzles or defeat enemies. There are also weapons for both yourself and your horse companion; you can use them together if needed! If you want something more challenging than what’s offered by this game then we recommend our next pick…

7. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is the first game in the series, and it’s all about finding treasure. As you explore each level, you’ll find coins that can be used to unlock new areas and characters. You can also use these coins to buy things like hats or backpacks for your character. If you’re looking for a game to keep your kids busy while they’re waiting on Santa Claus (or some other holiday), this one might be worth considering!

8. Rayman Legends Definitive Edition

Rayman Legends is a platformer game developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and published by Ubisoft. It’s the sequel to Rayman Origins, which was released in 2012. This game features a 2D side-scrolling platformer with lots of colorful characters and environments to explore.

Rayman Legends was released on February 19th, 2018 for Nintendo Switch (and Wii U). It received positive reviews from critics who praised its bright visuals, catchy soundtrack and fun gameplay mechanics such as powerups that can be used during levels or when fighting bosses.

Kirby Star Allies is a platformer game developed by HAL Laboratory, Inc. and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. The game was released in March 2018.

It is the first Kirby game to be released on the Nintendo Switch, but it’s also one of their lesser-known titles because most people who enjoy this series play other ones like Super Smash Bros., or even just watch cartoons about him instead of playing video games with him in them (like I do).

Kirby Star Allies has been critically acclaimed by critics and fans alike who praised its unique gameplay elements such as co-op multiplayer mode where up to four players can play together online against AI bots or other human players locally via split-screen mode since there isn’t any internet connection required if you don’t want one but still want some friends over at your house party tomorrow night when everyone else has left already because there wasn’t enough time left before dinner so we’ll have dinner earlier tonight instead.”

10. Overcooked! 2

Overcooked! 2 is a chaotic cooking game in which you and up to three other players must prepare, cook and serve up a variety of tasty orders before the baying customers storm out.

You will have to work together to dish up an assortment of food at your restaurant that’s bigger and better than ever. You’ll have to keep an eye on customer demand as well as each other’s efficiency if you want to master this masterpiece!

11. Sonic Mania Plus

Sonic Mania Plus is a 2D platformer that’s available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game was released in 2019 and it features remastered versions of the original Sonic Mania game from 2017. In this version, you can choose from three different characters: Classic Sonic, Modern Sonic, or new character Miles “Tails” Prower. You’ll also see many other classic characters like Knuckles the Echidna and Vector the Crocodile in this action-adventure title!

12. LEGO Worlds

LEGO Worlds is a fun, family-friendly game that allows kids to create their own worlds. The game comes with over 25 million blocks and pieces, plus two free downloadable content packs featuring new characters and environments. Kids can also explore the Touchstone Lake in this pack if they want to swim around with their favorite characters from the movie “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.”

13. Super Mario Party

Super Mario Party is a great game for kids who love playing board games but don’t want to deal with the hassle of learning how to play them. It’s easy to learn and plays well with your friends—which makes it even more fun! The characters are interesting and there are tons of different boards for you to explore. Overall, this game has a lot going for it: lots of replay value, an attractive art style (with some nice animations), and a simple control scheme that makes it easy for kids to get into without having any trouble getting started on their first try.

The only downside? The price tag! We know how expensive games can be these days…but if you have the money lying around then go ahead and treat your little one or yourself by picking up this console title today!
