Could your family use some quality game time? I know ours always can! We love a good game night and Nintendo has a bunch of fun games that are great for family fun. Competitive, multi player and something for everyone. I’m sharing a few of our family favorites for the Nintendo Switch.
Get the Nintendo Switch hooked up to the tv, connect the extra controllers, pop some corn and get ready for a epic game night in with these crowd favorites!
Calling all superstars! The Mario Party™ series is back with 5 classic boards from the Nintendo 64 Mario Party games. Race to get the most stars (and sabotage your opponents) on boards like the stellar Space Land or the spooky Horror Land! Party at your own pace by suspending a game and picking up right where you left off! The tides can turn quickly in Mario Party, so stay vigilant, partygoers. Play 100 classic minigames from the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo GameCube™ games and more in Mt. Minigames!
This has been one of my kids favorite games recently. It’s an improved look at the throwback boards. My husband has thoroughly enjoyed a peek back into his childhood and racing with his kids on these fun classic settings. The minigames are a lot of fun too! This is the perfect low-key family game that is good for all ages. Going head-to-head with one another, what could be more fun?
Take on a series of brain-bending activities that test your mental mettle in Big Brain Academy™: Brain vs. Brain for the Nintendo Switch™ system! Play a wide variety of activities, like memorizing a series of numbers, identifying an animal as it slowly comes into focus, or helping guide a train to its goal in fun, fast activities. Go brain-to-brain with friends and family in 4-player* matches to see who gets the highest score. Everyone can play together at varying difficulties, so a kid can hold their own against an adult in this battle of the brains!
This one is my personal favorite. I love these quick and challenging games. Memorizing patterns and number is fun for me! Of course my kids like when they beat me, which happens far too often. This is a good game for families and friends, plus it gives your brain a mini workout! I’d recommend this one for elementary age kids and up.
Star in a hilarious adventure alongside your family and friends! Cast your friends, family, or anyone you choose in a comedy-filled adventure to bring down the face-stealing Dark Lord! Create and customize Mii™ characters, assign them roles, and watch them come to life. Laugh along as your best friend and dear old grandma team up in the fantasy adventure of a lifetime!
We have loved creating our own Mii people and customizing them. Everyone in your family can have their own personalized Mii. You can even give certain personality traits to the Mii characters in your team and assign them fun jobs that will determine how they to battle. This is definitely a hit in our house from our immediate family to friends and even grandparents got in on this one! This game certainly inspires our creative sides.
There is always something fun and exciting to play and engage with on the Nintendo Switch. I hope you find a new fun game that your family will enjoy! Happy gaming!
