The 25 Best Nintendo Switch Adventure Games

Loveleen Kaur / ONE37pm

For decades, handheld gaming wasn’t necessarily associated with adventure games. That’s largely because the technology in portable devices didn’t allow for the most immersive experiences. While adventure games still lived on those platforms and could do well, the type of adventure you find on PC and the last few generations of consoles was superior for many. Now though, hardware has come a long way, and the days of having no color on your Game Boy are well and truly a thing of the past. The Nintendo Switch is capable of housing some of the same big, immersive adventure games as your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. Below, we’ve compiled a list of the 25 best Nintendo Switch adventure games.
