Best Nintendo Switch Games #13 – Minecraft: Switch Edition

Developer: Mojang

Synopsis: In Minecraft, you might feel most at home progressing through the harsh survival mode, fighting off monsters and forging your way to the Ender Dragon with scraps of what you find. Others might embrace the freedom of Creative mode, using various texture packs to build entire worlds out of blocks. Bring a friend along using a second pair of Joy-Cons, or share your creations with your friends online for endless adventures.

Why it’s one of the best Nintendo Switch games: Minecraft’s broad appeal is, in my opinion, generally wasted on consoles without the robust sharing features of PCs and seemingly infinite mods to play with. But a generation of Minecraft-lovers does not agree. Minecraft on Nintendo Switch merely offers yet another avenue for kids and adults alike to stretch their creative muscles, this time with the option to take the game anywhere and play with a friend locally at the same time. Minecraft, regardless of platform, brings endless hours of fun that last as long as your imagination can come up with new things to build.
