Top games to play in the Nintendo Switch Oled

Updated: Dec 22, 2021

I had to try it. One of my best friends is such a fan of Nintendo that he didn't care that the new Nintendo was a copy of the previous Nintendo that pre-ordered. So you had me on the 8 October playing with the console I swear I didn't play with.

So far, this is the list of games I consider are worthy of playing in Nintendo Switch Oled:

Luigi Mansion 3

The new enhancement contrast and brightness of the console made the spooky darkness o Luigi Mansion a perfect match. Special effects, ghosts, torchlight and haunted details benefit from the "upgraded version". Definitely enjoyed the way the colours vibrated, immersing me in a more enjoyable game atmosphere.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

I didn't want to stop racing at the rainbow circuit. This race is my favourite in all Mario Kart's history as the details are striking moulded. It is now remarkable how we can see the contrast in the rainbow colours of the ground. I would say that this is the best experience playing Nintendo Switch if I haven't played the next game.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I am one of those guys who have been playing the franchise for years. I was delighted when I tried it on the OLED screen as it reflected the details of the maps, the locations, the facial expressions. The music even sounds better with the enhanced speakers this new Nintendo have. Definitely, playing this game here comes with an added value for all the committed fans of Link.

Metroid Dread

Even though I am preparing a full article regarding this game, I didn't want to keep my mouth shut. After almost twenty years, the first 2D Metroid game is a gamechanger in terms of audio quality in consoles. Samus armour looks glorious if you compare it with the original Switch. The design details in the battles in darker scenes make this game worth the money.


This game is one of a kind that consumes all your WiFi broadband when you are playing. Once my mom even came to steal the Switch from the deck to turn it off as she couldn't watch anything on Netflix. Well, with the new LAN port, this situation could be solved. My mom could use the WiFi usually, and I could have lots of fun playing the wild microgames of WarioWare.
