After 5 years of existence, Nintendo Switch has still remained to be one of the top-selling gaming consoles based on sales. It has secured its fifth spot with over 111 million units sold, following PlayStation 4 (4th), Game Boy/Game Color (3rd), Nintendo DS (2nd), and PlayStation 2 (1st). (IGN)
Nintendo Switch also thrives to be on the pedestal because of the multitude of games of different genres and single- and multiplayer titles all kinds of gamers can enjoy whatever mood they're in. Don't forget Nintendo's core classics Super Mario Bros.™, and The Legend of Zelda™ which have consistently been included in the highest-rated games of all time. Thanks to the Switch's handheld gaming format, gamers can enjoy the ever-growing game library anywhere and anytime they want.
However, the Switch's e-store is not a child's play to navigate. So here is a little guide to help you discover the top 10 most popular Switch games you will surely enjoy.
Step into a world of discovery, exploration, and adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Travel across vast fields, through forests, and to mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the kingdom of Hyrule. Climb up towers and mountain peaks in search of new destinations, then set your own path to get there and plunge into the wilderness. Along the way, you'll battle towering enemies, hunt wild beasts and gather ingredients for the food and elixirs you'll make to sustain you on your journey.

This sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure is packed with secrets and surprises, and with Mario's new moves like cap throw, cap jump, and capture, you'll have fun and exciting gameplay experiences unlike anything you've enjoyed in a Mario game before.
Peaceful creativity and charm await as you roll up your sleeves and make your new life whatever you want it to be. Collect resources and craft everything from creature comforts to handy tools.

Hit the road with the definitive version of Mario Kart 8 and play anytime, anywhere! Race your friends or battle them in a revised battle mode on new and returning battle courses. Play locally in up to 4-player multiplayer in 1080p while playing in TV Mode. Every track from the Wii U version, including DLC, makes a glorious return. Plus, the Inklings appear as all-new guest characters, along with returning favorites, such as King Boo, Dry Bones, and Bowser Jr.!
Pounce and climb through dozens of colourful stages! Mario (and his friends) can use power-ups like the Super Bell, which grants catlike abilities, like climbing and scratching. Work together locally or online with up to three other players to reach the goal... and to see who can get a high score. The Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury game features the same great co-op gameplay, creative levels and power-ups as the original game, but also so much more.

Two years have passed since the release of Splatoon, and two years have also passed in the game world, leading to an evolution in fashion trends and new styles of weapons and gear.
For those setting out through Sinnoh for the first time, plenty of new encounters and surprises await.
