Playing multiplayer games on Nintendo Switch is always a fun time, but it’s especially fun if you are able to play with your friends! Some games have local multiplayer, while others have online multiplayer that requires you to have a Nintendo Online subscription. We have played so many different multiplayer games on Nintendo Switch, from games that require more than one Switch to games that we have plugged into our TV so that we can play split-screen.

Whether you like to play something relaxing, play together, or play a game that’s intense and sees you battling against your friends, there is something for everyone on this list of multiplayer games for Switch. I’ve enjoyed playing couch co-op, but sometimes playing a game that pits you against someone is just as fun.

Without further adieu, let’s get into the list of best multiplayer games for Switch.
