Playing video games with friend are pretty dang fun. It’s just so enjoyable to compete or share something you like with your friends. I would know, I just had a bunch of friends over this afternoon to break in Mario Tennis Aces and it’s past midnight already… opps.

In any case, here are some of my other favorite multiplayer games that are the Nintendo Switch


Super Bomberman R

Color me surprised that Konami of all companies put out a pretty fun bomberman game in this day and age. The main thing that set this bomberman game apart from other bomberman games is the reintroduction of special abilities into the game. Basically, many of the special bombers have some special ability that does something interesting like laying down a trap that sends bombs that travel over it in a random direction or swapping places with an opponent. These abilities just add to the chaos of the base bomberman game, which makes a chaotic but fun cocktail of fun. If I had any criticism for the game it’s that the game’s controls are a bit too sensitive and that the single player kind of sucks. If you can find Super Bomberman R on sale, I would recommend grabbing the game if you have some friends who’d like to break in the game.

Puyo Puyo Tetris

If you like either Puyo Puyo or Tetris, then you’ll like this game. Puyo Puyo Tetris is basically both Puyo Puyo and Tetris in the same game and they have cross play with each other. So if one of your friends wants to play Tetris and you want to play Puyo Puyo, you can. Plus, there’s a ton of extra modes in the game as well that mixes up the game even more. If you have a passing interest in puzzle games and you have a switch for this game, this is a must buy for you.

9 Parchments

This indie game, that you can also get on Steam, is a Magica like action RPG dungeon crawler, which is a blast to play with friends. In Magica, you run through various area destroying various variation of magical fairies that are trying to kill you with massive magical attacks. Plus, the game has friendly fire on by default so you’ll have as much fun cussing out your friends as well as playing with them. I got the game for $10 and I feel it was a great purchase

Basically all Mario Spinoff Games on the Switch

Generally, all Mario spin off games are of pretty high quality and the spin off games on the Switch are some of the best. Mario Tennis Aces is my favorite game of the Mario Tennis series, mechanically. Also, the Switch has Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as well, which is a great port of the great Mario Kart 8. You can’t go wrong with either Mario spin off game on the Switch and you should pick both games up if you have the time and cash


Are there any other multiplayer games you like on the Switch and what’re those games like?
