Best Nintendo Switch Game Exclusives (July 2018 Update)
Created by Jordan Ramée on
The Switch launched in March 2017 and Nintendo's done a pretty stellar job getting exclusives onto the company's newest console. Within its first year, the Switch had incredible triple-A exclusives like Super Mario Odyssey and smaller surprises like Golf Story. That trend isn't slowing down in 2018, with games like Super Mario Party and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate scheduled to launch before the year is up.
Click ahead to view GameSpot's highest-rated Switch exclusives since the console's launch. The titles are in alphabetical order and don't reflect our own personal ranking of each game. The list only includes games we've awarded an 8/10 or higher and we've limited the gallery based on console exclusivity, so you'll see a few games that are also available on PC.
This means titles that are on both Wii U and Switch without the Switch version being a remaster are not included. That's why Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition made the cut, while titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild did not.
Some of these titles can be found on our recommended list of cheap Switch games. If you're thinking of buying one, then consider checking that list first.
We've only given one Nintendo Switch console exclusive a perfect 10/10 score. Do you know which one it was? Click ahead to find out. Be sure to also read through our list of every PS4 console exclusive game we've given a review score of 8/10 or higher. As you might surmise, that list is significantly longer than this one. And yet, surprisingly, there's only one 10/10 review score in that gallery as well.
