Staying At Home Doesn’t Equate to Boredom – 5 Best Nintendo Switch Games For Multiplayers

Whether your company has implemented a work from home policy or you’re serving your Stay Home Notice (SHN), it is a climate where most of us are facing the four walls of our homes more so than ever.

And well, in the hours that you’re not working, if you even are (shhh, it’s our little secret), or you’re not sleeping, it can get quite boring during the day.


Playing games is definitely an option. But well, boardgames can take a toll, especially the Role-Playing Games (RPG) that usually takes hours to complete, and if you’re inviting friends over, well that defeats the purpose of social distancing does it not?

If you have a Nintendo Switch, that’s a game changer, and we have 5 games we recommend to rid your boredom. Best still, these games can be played online with your friends, so you can still connect with the world!

5 Best Nintendo Switch Games for Multiplayers 

1. Overcooked 2

There are games that test your friendships, and then there’s Overcooked 2.

The second edition of the ever-popular cooperative cooking game, Overcooked, pits 2-4 players against the stress and time constraints of preparing and serving food for hungry customers.

Don’t wash the plates in time or you miss getting your eggs out? Oh, you’ll be sure to hear it from your fellow chef(s), even after when the games end.

There’ll be lots of screaming and harmless angst, but it’ll all be in the name of some good ol’ fun.

2. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the latest instalment in the Animal Crossing franchise, a social simulation game which revolves around building your own virtual village and interacting with anthropomorphic animals.

In New Horizons, players are whisked off to an uncharted desert island where you harness resources to build your own home and a community where other players can visit. From touring the island to digging up fossils, every day brings something new and different.

As you’re stuck in the confines of your own physical home, you can essentially teleport to a whole other virtual world that doesn’t have any boundaries. In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you don’t just have a game, you have the perfect escape.

3. Dauntless

Dauntless is for everyone who love online RPG games.

A free-to-play, cooperative RPG game that was heavily inspired by Capcom’s hit Monster Hunter series, Dauntless places a premium on the game’s social and cooperative element, seeking to play up the multiplayer aspect of the game.

You take on the role of a Slayer whose main objective is to hunt behemoths that have besieged the world after a cataclysmic event. With stylistic artwork designed to age well and an immersive world, Dauntless is the kind of game you’ll lose hours playing it.

Join up with friends as you level up and take down the most powerful enemies in The Shattered Isles.

When you think of Nintendo, you can only rattle off so many games before Mario Kart is mentioned. The quintessential circuit racing game with characters pulling from the Super Mario Universe has been a fan favourite since 1992.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe takes all the good of editions past and finetuned the kinks, producing what may quite possibly be the greatest Mario Kart Nintendo has ever published. A huge roster of 42 characters are available for you to choose right from the start, as well as the tracks which takes away all the grinding that you need to do in the past to unlock.

And with proper Battle Modes, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be the most competitive one to date. It’s truly one of the best multiplayer Nintendo Switch games out there.

5. Pokémon Sword and Shield

We’ve come a long way since the first version of Pokémon Red and Blue was launched in 1996.

It was actually Pokémon: Let’s Go that was first introduced to the Nintendo Switch platform with a streamlined RPG element. This time, Pokémon Sword and Shield is going back to its roots to what made it such a hit amongst people worldwide.

With a heavy focus on RPG as well as battling and training which was the core of the previous mainline games of the series, Pokémon Sword and Shield will be set to pit players against Gym Leaders and each other to see who is the ultimate trainer.

It’s time to see again if you have what it takes to be the very best.
