There are plenty of Nintendo Switch family games for everyone to enjoy! A ton of the best Nintendo Switch games aren't just good for kids; they're also fun for parents to learn and play along. Most Switch games are appropriate for all ages, so whether it's little Jimmy or Grandma Joyce joining in on the fun, your family night can accommodate everyone. What's more, many of the games on this list support up to four people who can easily join in by using Joy-Cons. If you're considering a Nintendo Switch for family fun, these are the games that need to be on your radar.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Few games are as synonymous with "family fun" as Mario Kart. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe delivers the exciting kart-racing experience we all know and love with updated visuals and a windfall of new content. Enjoy it with up to four players on the same Nintendo Switch.

Your family is sure to enjoy race after race as you unlock new characters, new kart options, and new tracks – we sure enjoyed it when we tested it out through our initial playthrough. You get to choose from many Nintendo favorite characters and customize your kart for the best racing stats. If Mario Kart isn't new to you, you may even see some familiar tracks!

Luigi's Mansion 3

You and a family member can play through the main storyline together in Luigi's Mansion 3; catching ghosts, figuring out puzzles, and helping each other reach new places. One player will control Luigi while the second player controls Gooigi.

But that's not the end of the multiplayer fun! When we reviewed this title, we found that you can also have up to eight players in ScareScraper and Scream Park modes. In ScareScraper, players each play as a different colored Luigi to save Toad while catching ghosts, working together. In Scream Park, you will be split into two teams and play versus each other. The three games in Scream Park include Coin Floating, Ghost Hunt, and Cannon Barrage.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Play multiplayer in a non-traditional sense by battling Pokémon with other players, as well as trading them together. If you have one person with Diamond and the other with Pearl, you can trade Pokémon exclusive to your game to the other player so you'll both have a complete Pokédex. We found Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to be a pretty faithful remake of the Nintendo DS Diamond and Pearl games.

Pokémon Sword and Shield

While the main story is single-player, this game encourages you to interact with other players by trading Pokémon and battling Pokémon together. While it may not be our favorite Pokémon game, Pokémon Sword and Shield are super fun and kid-friendly while still appealing to adults. If you have two people in your family that want to play, make sure you give them different versions.

If you have multiple Switch systems in one home, you can trade Pokémon and help each other in raid battles. Trading will allow those with Sword to get Pokémon exclusive to Shield and vice versa.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

In our review, we have called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch. Over 80 of the most iconic characters from Nintendo, Capcom, Konami, Square Enix, and more are packed into this super-fun game — and they're all looking for a fight. In addition to favorite characters, Nintendo players will recognize many of the battle arenas from many of their other favorite Nintendo games. Up to eight players can battle in this party brawler for the ages or play against 64 players in online tournaments. While this is a fighting game, the graphics aren't gory or overly brutal. It's very cartoony and light.

Super Mario Maker 2

Super Mario Maker 2 has been, in our experience, a great way for kids to bring out their creativity while playing! You and your family can make your own classic Mario levels and then test them out on each other. You can build the level however you want; it's all yours to create from scratch. If you happen to have Nintendo Switch Online, you can also play thousands of other creations and share your own online.

In Versus mode, you race the clock through a course and try to be the first character through the level. In Co-op mode, everyone has to work together to get through to the end. As long as one player makes it, you all win!

Pokémon: Let's Go! Pikachu/Eevee

Pokémon has always been a social game, but only for people trading and battling each other. With the launch of Pokémon: Let's Go!, these games let you and your loved ones catch 'em all together. Two players can do Support Play, which we note works very well and players are able to travel this world together.

Support Play comes with some bonuses, too. If both trainers throw their Poké Ball simultaneously, you have a better shot at catching your Pokémon. While in battle, each player will have their own Pokémon to battle with, so you'll have twice as many in battles.

Mario Party Superstars brings back the classic Mario Party games with more than 100 games that up to four people can enjoy. Choose from 1 vs. 3, 2 vs. 2, or have a full-on four-player battle royale in a collection that never seems to get old.

At the end of each round, players will compete for coins they can use to purchase a star through one of 100 minigames. Not in the mood to play a whole board game?

Super Mario Odyssey

We've said that Super Mario Odyssey has limited cooperative gameplay for up to two people but is mostly a single-player affair. However, that doesn't stop it from being perfect for the family, with plenty of puzzles and levels that your loved ones can help each other through.

In the co-op mode, one player is Mario and the other is his hat, Cappy. There are special abilities a player has as Cappy that make it different from co-op in other Mario games for experienced Mario players.

As if you needed even more party games, we call 1-2 Switch a great simple game for kids. It combines party games with learning the Switch controls. There are 28 mini-games ranging from cow-milking and sword-fighting to a Wild West quick-draw duel.

This game uses the unique features of the Joy-Con controllers to create fun ways to play and win these mini-games. Although you can only play with two players simultaneously, there is a game mode to play with multiple players as teams.

Yoshi's Crafted World

Yoshi's Crafted World is an adorable puzzle platformer adventure. When we tested out the game in our review, we noted that it's friendly enough for the entire family to enjoy. Take control of Yoshi and friends as they search a beautiful world made of everyday crafting materials, such as cardboard boxes and paper cups, for clues to a fabled artifact.

In addition to the single-player story mode, there is also a two-player co-op mode, so two people in the family can play and enjoy together. For an easier time, if you have brand new players, try out the Mellow mode to give Yoshi wings in case he falls.

ARMS is a unique fighting game that focuses on motion controls with the Joy-Cons. Pick your fighter from a colorful and bright roster of distinctive fighters, each with its unique ARM capabilities. Every arena stage is also full of obstacles, making the battles even more epic. It's definitely a fighting game unlike anything you've played before, and it's wholesome entertainment for everyone.

The graphics while in battle are bright and fun. In addition to the traditional battle style, we love the other optional play styles like the sport styles, including basketball and volleyball. You can have up to four players, with not only a one-on-one battle option but also a two-on-two!

Up to four people can play Kirby Star Allies at a time, so this is an excellent game for the entire family to play together, and as Alex says in her experience of the game, the difficulty level is perfect for young or new players. Control Kirby and use friend hearts to charm foes, and they'll fight alongside you, giving you access to their own unique Copy abilities too.

You can even combine some abilities with elements, giving you an edge in battle against some bosses who are weak to certain elements. Additional players can come in or leave at any point during play. It's up to you and your friends to find out what those weaknesses are!

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 is a family-friendly shooter that we have noted will appeal even to people that don't like shooters. Rather than have the objective of getting as many kills as possible, it's mostly about inking your turf in Splatoon 2 matches — whichever team paints in the most turf in a match will win. This brings the battle element without being gruesome.

There's also a single-player campaign and other game modes to check out. Splatoon 2 is a family-friendly shooter that is super cute and enjoyable for everyone, regardless of age. Play with up to eight players.

Ultimate family fun

Nintendo Switch family games might as well be an endless list. There is something for everyone, young and old. Our picks all deliver loads of fun for everyone gathered around the TV. They're perfect for all ages, and just as with anything in life, they get better with the more people you add! There are many family-friendly titles on the Nintendo Switch, but these are just some of the best Nintendo Switch games you can get.

Our absolute favorite is one we've given a raving review, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It features a large roster of drivers, plus, there are several game modes to enjoy, along with the ever-popular online mode against other players from the globe, so you can see who's the best racer in your family.

Another great choice is Luigi's Mansion 3 because we've shared that it's super fun as a two-player co-op game that also includes a few party games for up to eight players. While it centers around catching ghosts, this game is more about laughs than scares.

And finally, another highly rated game on our list is Yoshi's Crafted World. Mostly because Yoshi is cute as heck, but the world made from everyday crafting materials is absolutely stunning to behold. Plus, there are many secrets to discover as you search for the collectible artifact — and the replay value is high!
