5 Best Nintendo Switch Action Games To Try This Year on Blog

The Nintendo Switch was a huge success, as it sold over a million units in its first weekend, and now it seems like Nintendo has a hit on their hands. The Switch is a hybrid console, meaning it can be played as a home console or on the go. This article will be going over the 5 best Nintendo Switch action games available right now.


The game takes place in a world called Caelondia, ruled by an unnamed evil and the destruction of the world led to the founding of the Bastion, a safe haven for humanity. The player takes control of the Kid, a silent protagonist, as they explore the Bastion and its outskirts to find out what happened to the world.

The Kid’s only option to survive is to travel through the wild and discover the secrets of the fallen. The player can use a variety of weapons to attack enemies, which can be found scattered around the world. Weapons are also found in the form of shards, which are scattered around the Bastion. 

Bastion is a beautiful game. It has a great storyline and a ton of replayability, so I recommend trying it.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim


Skyrim is the fifth installment in The Elder Scrolls series. It was developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. After the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, the Imperial Legion wins the war against the Mythic Dawn and the Empire of Cyrodiil is restored. The province of Skyrim, however, remains in the control of the Stormcloaks and the Thalmor, who seek to dominate the rest of Tamriel.

While the game is set in an open world, it is still comparatively linear. The player is free to travel anywhere in Skyrim and to complete any number of quests. The player is also free to explore the world, although certain areas must be avoided, such as bandit-filled areas or cities under the control of the enemy. 

Similar to previous Elder Scrolls games, Skyrim is a first-person perspective game. The player is free to explore the world and complete any number of quests. Some quests will require the player to travel to other areas, such as the wilderness, or to travel to a city, such as the capital city of a province. The quests that the player is given are not necessarily the most important, and you are free to ignore them and complete them at a later time.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an open-world action-adventure game in the Zelda series developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch.

The game is set in Hyrule, the setting of previous titles in the series. After regaining consciousness, Link discovers that his house has been attacked and his memory has been stolen and sets out on a quest to regain his memories and save Princess Zelda. 

The game features RPG elements, including a leveling system, the ability to climb, and the ability to cook meals. The game world is fully explorable, with side-quests that have Link exploring and interacting with the land and its inhabitants.

The game world is divided into areas that Link can traverse on foot or by using the game's many vehicles, including horses, boats, and a four-legged mount. The game's physics system allows Link to carry and climb over objects and structures, which can be used to solve puzzles or to reach higher locations.

Portal Knights

Portal Knights is a sandbox role-playing game, where you will be able to explore a medieval land full of interesting places, monsters, and loot, and fight against monsters in turn-based combat.

As I’ve already mentioned, the game takes place in a medieval world, where the only technology that can be seen is the portal. Throughout the game, you will assist the inhabitants of the kingdom by collecting materials to build a portal, which is the only way to get back home. The portal is in the hands of the Dark Lord, who has kidnapped the princess.

Diablo III: Eternal Collection

The game is set in a dark fantasy world, where the player takes the role of a mortal warrior. The story revolves around the Lord of Terror, Diablo, who has been defeated by heroes in the past and has now risen to power once again, bent on destroying humanity in order to establish a demonic empire. The player will be the only one fighting against the evil.

The gameplay of the game is similar to previous installments. The player will explore the world and fight against different monsters and boss enemies. As the player progresses in the game, he will gain experience and skills known as talents. The earned money will be spent to upgrade his skills and abilities.
