This product was recommended by Jake Smith from Absolute Reg

The Super Smash Bros is the best multiplayer Switch game. The game continued to reign as an Amazon’s Choice in some categories, making it a popular and sought-after game by avid enthusiasts of the Smash Brothers series. The multiplayer function allows you to fight with friends locally or through the internet. If you don’t have somebody to play with, the best part about this game is that you can play against strangers online. The game has over 70 playable characters. Among them are Snake from Metal Gear Solid, Palutena from Kid Icarus, Wario and Princess Peach from Mario, and Pikachu from Pokemon. You’ll have fun playing all of the uniquely designed characters with various moves and special attacks.

Spiritfarer is one of the most beautiful, touching and calming games available for the Nintendo Switch, and can be played as a local multiplayer. You play as Stella and her cat Daffodil, who run a beautiful live-aboard boat that ferries spirits on to the afterlife, and you are tasked with keeping the spirits happy and supporting them while on their final journey. The art style is gorgeous, the characters are endearing and fun, and the tasks, crafting and dialogue in the game are entertaining and relaxed. Playing as a multiplayer game will lead to a beautiful shared experience between friends, and can lead to meaningful conversations and an appreciation of helping others. The soundtrack is also truly beautiful and immersive. This game is perfect for anyone who would like to share a beautiful experience with friends or family on their Switch.

Diablo 3 Eternal Collection

One of my favorite multiplayer switch games is Diablo 3, an unparalleled action role-playing game. I absolutely adore this franchise! Powerful heroes, formidable foes and a challenge from start to finish. I love the world of Diablo and this game is no exception. Plus, the Switch version comes with pieces of Zelda’s world in Sanctuary. Another gem to discover

Luigi’s Mansion 3

In Luigi’s Mansion 3, you will be taking a tour around a haunted hotel that is filled with many spooky things. If you don’t want to go it alone, you can bring a friend along with you as Luigi’s doppelganger, Gooigi! You will be able to work together to solve puzzles, take out ghosts, and figure out what’s going on in the Last Resort hotel. If you don’t want to work together, you can gather up to 8 players to see who the best ghost catchers are in the ScareScraper multiplayer mode!

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

One of the most classic multiplayer gaming experiences has to be Mario Kart, and on the Nintendo Switch you have one of the best versions of the game with Mario Kart 8! Choose from all of your favorite characters from the Mario world and go to battle on a multitude of beautifully laid out tracks. Gather up different power-ups to terrorize your opponents while they attempt to get across the finish line first. One of the best features about Mario Kart 8 is not only can you play 4-player multiplayer locally with your family and friends, you can also go online to battle it out with players from across the globe! Mario Kart 8 truly makes for one of the most well-rounded multiplayer experiences on the platform.

Monster Hunter Rise

This product was recommended by Emily Appelbaum from Family Destinations Guide

This game features bombastic monster hunting game play and it also introduces the new wire bug mechanic giving you an easy way to traverse the massive levels. You can also use it to regain balance after taking a hit or even mount a weakened opponent. Monster Hunter games are always best played with a few friends and Rise is no different. Gather a few buddies or just you and your fam, plan your strategy then set out on a hunt together.

Breath of the Wild is one of the best Legend of Zelda games that has ever been released. Shockingly, the total sales of Breth of the Wild is more than the sale of the switch. It’s a world alive with surprise and dense with detail. An incredible, milestone achievement.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons
