The Nintendo Switch is home to a wide variety of outstanding games ranging from Nintendo’s first-party offerings like Mario Kart 8 and Animal Crossing New Horizons, to a plethora of third-party titles.
With such a vast library, it’s easy to miss out on many fun games. So, here are three hidden gems available for the Nintendo Switch:
Vitamin Connection - Launch Trailer - Nintendo Switchyoutu.be
Offering a unique co-op experience, Vitamin Connection tasks two players with piloting a capsule-sized ship to rescue members of the Sable family — including the dog and even their television! — by defeating an assortment of naughty bacteria and increasingly wacky predicaments.
Each player uses one Joy Con controller to command specific elements of the ship, like its bacteria-busting Vitamin Beam or steering. Twist and turn through bright, maze-like environments and zap down those foes.
Three cleverly-designed minigames are included in each level, leveraging offbeat Joy Con features like the IR Sensor. The cherry on top is Vitamin Connection’s art style — a colorful world full of comical characters and a cartoon art style that is full of laughs and smiles.
As Vitamin Connection’s title screen says, it’s the bacteria-busting game for one or two, or just for you!
Pumpkin Jack - Launch Trailer - Nintendo Switchyoutu.be
Looking for the perfect game to play during the Halloween season? Look no further than Pumpkin Jack, a spooky 3D platformer. This epic adventure has you play the Mythical Pumpkin Lord, Jack. Jack’s a fallen trickster reincarnated as a pumpkin who must defeat a crooked wizard masquerading as the hero.
Each level concludes with a challenging boss which gives Jack a new weapon, like a scythe, shotgun, and even a talkative sword. You can complete the entire game in one weekend — taking around 4-6 hours to reach the credits — making Pumpkin Jack ideal for a much-needed spooky romp!

The variety of the characters combined their individual abilities in co-op results in a crazy, fun, and frantic experience as players aim to rack up a high score. Crank up the rowdy with 4-player party modes — plus even more surprises — and you have a party game you’ll love more than Wario loves money!
