When you buy a Nintendo Switch, you’re getting a gaming system that lets you play some of the best games ever made. That is not too much. In the last five years, the Switch’s game library has grown into a gold mine with some of the best games ever made for a video game console. I think the Switch is on track to leave a legacy that will be on par with or even better than that of some of the best consoles of our time. The Switch has something for everyone to enjoy, and the hits keep coming. It’s hard to keep up with everything, so in today’s video, I wanted to narrow things down a bit and share my top 10 favorite new Nintendo Switch releases of 2022. As you might imagine, making this list wasn’t easy, so without further ado,
Kiry and the Land No One Remembers
Kirby and the forgotten land is the first thing on my list. Kirby’s latest adventure on the Switch is called The Forgotten Land, and it might be his best one so far. This game is bright, colorful, and full of new and fun things that Kirby can do. The unique thing about the forgotten land is that it adds a new mode that changes the game in a way that makes it unlike any other Kirby game. Kirby fans and people who have never played Kirby before will both love Kirby and the forgotten land.
LEGO STAR WARS: THE SKYWALKER SAGA
This game is really great. Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is up next. I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t played a Lego game since Lego Island on the PC, so I didn’t know what to expect from Lego Star Wars. As soon as I started reading the Skywalker Saga, I had no more doubts. In fact, I was blown away. Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga is a Lego version of all nine episodes of the Skywalker Saga in the Star Wars movies. The world is big, and you have a lot of freedom to explore it, fight in intense battles, and, of course, laugh at the funny Lego jokes along the way. There are a lot of things to do in the Skywalker saga.
Mario Strikers Battlegrounds
Mario Striker’s Battle League is number three on my list. It’s been a very long time since there was a new Mario Striker game. In fact, the last one for the Wii came out more than ten years ago. If you have ever played any of those games, you will know what to expect here. Strikers is both a crazy soccer game and a fighting game. It can get very serious and also have some funny parts. Battle League doesn’t start from scratch, but instead improves on what came before. It’s a lot of fun and can be played over and over again. Even if you don’t like soccer, you’ll have a great time with this.
Warriors of Fire Emblem
The fire emblem warriors’ three hopes is number four. Three Hopes is a spin-off from the main series of Fire Emblem games. It is a warrior-style game and a sequel to the Switch game Fire Emblem Warriors. Since I first played Dynasty Warriors on the PS2, I’ve liked warrior games, so Fire Emblem Warriors and Hyrule Warriors are right up my alley. Three Hopes takes place in the same world as Three Houses, but it tells the story from a different point of view. It has a great story and action-packed gameplay to go with it. You will hack and slash your way through groups of enemies, coming up with plans as you go to move the story forward. Three Hopes has a lot to do for hours, and even though there’s a lot going on, the Switch version of the game runs very smoothly. Even if you don’t usually like warrior games, you might like Three Hopes. This game is a work of art.
Arceus is a legendary Pokemon.
and Pokemon Legends comes in at number five (RKS Legends). Arceus is the Switch game I’ve played the most so far in 2022, and there’s a good reason for that: it’s the first Pokemon game to switch from the usual Pokemon game format to an open world adventure. This is a dream come true for many people, like me. We’ve been waiting for this for a very, very long time. legends In Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, Gen 4, there is a story about how Arceus came to be. This story takes place before the events in the modern Citron region. It’s by far my favorite Pokemon game, so it’s no surprise that I’m so into this game. We hope to see many more open-world Pokemon games like this in the future. Mew Mewtwo Celebi Jirachi Deoxys Who knows? We’ll find out as we go down.
We have a list of Fall Guys is a game that most people already know and love, so it doesn’t really need to be introduced or explained. This is one of those games that I don’t think anyone thought would come to the Switch, but it did in June. It’s a game that fits right in here, and it gives a lot of people who might not have been able to play it before the chance to do so. Best of all, it’s now a free-to-play game, so you can download it from the eShop and start playing this crazy multiplayer game.
Sports on the Nintendo Switch
Nintendo Switch Sports is the best of the rest. Switch Sports is the follow-up to Wii Sports, which came with the Wii when it first came out, and it’s a lot of fun. This is a great game to play with friends and family at a get-together. The great thing about this one, though, is that you don’t all have to be in the same room to play. It has online play, so you can play all the sports with friends and family who live far away or with random online players from all over the world. People are really, really good at bowling, so if you think you’re the best, you might want to think again.
TMNT Shredders Revenge
At number 8, teenage mutant ninja turtle shredders’ revenge As soon as I heard about Shredder’s Revenge, it became the game I was most excited about. I can say that the wait was well worth it now that it’s here. This is good old-fashioned Ninja Turtles fun that reminds you of how fun it was to put quarters into an arcade machine, except you don’t have to do that this time. When I went to an arcade with my friends, we always played Turtles through Time. Shredder’s Revenge feels like a love letter to those old Ninja Turtles games that we all know and love. The updated combat and combo system is great, the music is good, and the visuals are stunning. I think that’s my favorite part of this game, but there are many things I like.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the second-to-last one. No matter how you look at it, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a classic. It might even be the best Mario Kart game ever made. It’s a game I can play again and again and still have a great time with thanks to its action-packed Mario Kart fun and great online system. It’s also cool to see that the game is getting a new lease on life thanks to the boost and the previous dlc, which added 48 new tracks from the entire series. One thing you can always count on with Mario Kart games is that they will be fun.
Metroid Dread is last but not least on this list. Metroid Dread didn’t come out in 2022; it came out at the end of 2021. However, it quickly became one of my top five favorite Switch games of all time. It’s a return to form for the Metroid series, and it takes the series to new heights. I really like 2D metroid games, so dread has been a lot of fun for me. This isn’t the longest metroid game, but you’ll have a lot of fun exploring, shooting enemies, running away from Emilys, finding hidden items, and doing a lot more. Metroid Red is one of Samus’s most exciting adventures so far.
So there you have it, my friends: 10 of my favorite Nintendo Switch games to play right now. With all the Switch games out there, this list doesn’t even scratch the surface of what’s available, but these are some of my favorites that I’ve been having a lot of fun with lately, so I thought I’d share them with you. As I always say in my top game videos, the Switch has thousands and thousands of great games to play, and it’s hard to keep up with them all.
