When you think about the strategy game genre, Nintendo's adorable console might not immediately spring to mind. This furrowed brow of a genre is more commonly associated with the PC, rightly or wrongly.

Well, just wrongly, actually. The idea that you have to play strategy games with a mouse is as outdated as the idea that all strategy games are super-serious and stuffy.

Type 'Switch strategy games' into Google (other search engines are available), and you'll find a formidable list of games that span the tactical spectrum.

We've got JRPGs, serious sims, cute tower defence, team tactics, and loads more besides. All have a strategic edge, and all cane played on your sofa or on the bus. That's the beauty of the Switch.
