The Nintendo Switch is said to be very good at letting you play alone or with friends at the same time. You and your friends can play at home or on the go now that the Joy-Cons can work together or separately. That’s not all. What about your partner?
As hardcore or casual gamers, or as a mix of both, there are some great Switch games to play with your friends. They’ll make you nervous and laugh, but above all, they’ll make you have a lot of fun. Read on for the best Switch games to play together.
1. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
Only Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury can compete when it comes to multiplayer and co-op gameplay. Few, if any, of the regular Mario games can do that. 3D World is a great game for four people to play together. It also has a well-executed co-op mode in the Bowser’s Fury section of the game.
To share some of the best platforming with someone else without having to pass the controller over and over again, this game is for you. People who put in the time can get an extra character. There is a lot of content to choose from, and there are a lot of collectibles.
2. Mario Golf: Super Rush
Mario Golf: Super Rush is all about one-on-one play. Golf Adventure mode may not be very exciting, but the multiplayer parts of the game are very fun. There are a lot of different types of games for people to play, including the frantic and fast-paced Battle Golf.
Lack of team-based games and the limited number of courses may bother some people, but for those who are competitive and want to show off their skills on the golf course, you could do a lot worse than this game. Nintendo has promised to keep adding new content to the game after it comes out, so things can only get better.
3. Super Mario Maker 2
It doesn’t matter that Super Mario Maker 2 has local co-op for up to four people, because the real fun is likely to be found somewhere else. When couples play together, they can have a lot of fun making difficult courses for each other. They can also show off both their creativity and their competitiveness as they do so. I can’t think of a better way to say it.
A lot of people love the game, even if they can’t think of new course ideas. It’s now possible for people to make their own courses, and couples can work together to finish them or compete against each other to see who can get there the fastest.
4. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
There’s something about hacking and slashing your way through hundreds of enemies after a long and tiring day that makes you feel better. Even better is doing it with someone you love. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you do just that.
Age of Calamity builds on the greatness of the original game. It has a lot of unlockable characters, a lot of challenges, and some of the best musou-style combat on the Nintendo Switch. Omega Force and Nintendo also plan to release a lot of DLC content over the next year, which should keep the game interesting for a while longer.
5. Snipperclips Plus: Cut It Out, Together!
With your partner, you can play Snipperclips as two little pieces of paper. You’ll both have a great time. You work together to cut each other into the right shape so that puzzles can be solved. To carry a bowling ball to the goal, you might cut your partner into a bowl shape. You could also make a hook to pull down a lever.
It’s a lot of fun, and it really tests your ability to come up with new ideas. Even if you don’t want to, you can even attack your partner. If you cut them too much, their little paper friend disappears and respawns. Getting into fights with each other might take up more time than making progress.
6. 39 Days To Mars
Even though it’s a small indie project, it almost looks like it was made to help couples improve their communication. The main idea of this hand-drawn puzzle game is for two people to work together to solve and finish a lot of different brain-busters at the same time. These mostly visual puzzles range from putting together pictures to unlocking contraptions to carefully guiding objects through hazard-filled courses.
There are a lot of simple things to do in 39 Days to Mars. Even though it’s simple, it’s still fun to play for short periods of time with your partner.
7. Stardew Valley
Since the multiplayer update for the Nintendo Switch came out, Stardew Valley has become a must-play game for couples to play together. The best way to start is to build your own farm from the ground up. If your partner is willing to help, they can join in on the one you’ve already made.
Grow crops, sell them, and improve the town as a group. As a group, we can make the dream come true! If you play with your partner, you can get married in-game! Isn’t that cute?
8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Is it fun to play? Not really. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a re-release of the Wii U game.
In terms of competitive games that you can play with your partner, Mario Kart is your best bet. You can always play pranks on each other with items, and that doesn’t get old.
Make a picture of your boyfriend or girlfriend running in first place, and then think about how you would feel. In the beginning, they’re making fun of you. At the last second, you get a blue shell that takes them out and makes sure you win.
Will you ever let them forget it? That’s up to you!
9. Moving Out
Moving Out is by far the best Nintendo Switch game to play with your partner. It’s a lot like Overcooked in that it’s a cooperative game, but instead of serving food, you’re taking things out of a house and putting them in a moving truck.
There are some things that are heavy, so you’ll need to carry them together. But it’s a race against the clock, and working together isn’t always easy.
There are a lot of things you can do, like throw things around, jump through windows, and knock things over, and it’s all very funny. It’s also a lot of fun and not at all stressful.
