With the Nintendo Switch a year and a half old, it's always impressive to see how far the system has come and how well developers have been responding to it.

Platformers are one of the most classic genres of video games, right alongside sh'mups and arcade fighters, and you know we've already seen a lot of them pass through the Switch's doors.

Since we know there are some knock-out 3D platformers on the market at the moment, we wanted to focus solely on which 2D (or 2.5D if you're being really picky) platformer games you should think about picking up.

Not because we want you to throw money away, but because we know you'll be getting a fantastic experience. At the end of the day, that's all we want as gamers, isn't it?
