The Nintendo Switch has been out for a couple of weeks now, and though it still needs a little bit of time to find its place on the market, it’s safe to say that its launch has been a complete success. The game system has sold out pretty much everywhere, and its popularity has become so great that Nintendo has opted to double its initial order of available systems for the year, boosting its surplus from eight to 16 million. It’s looking to have a big year yet.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have one of the year’s best games, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, launching right alongside it. The game has earned critical acclaim from various sites (including ours), and it’s pretty much sold on a one-to-one unit basis with the system, so players could experience one of Link’s finest adventures.
But some folks believe that Zelda is pretty much all the Nintendo Switch has to offer at the moment, since some of the major games, like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2, are still a ways off from release. However, that’s not the case. There are five great titles on the market right now that you can pick up for your system and thoroughly enjoy, both on the go and at home. Here’s a quick rundown of five great launch-area games you might have missed!
