Best Strategy Games for Nintendo Switch; Be the King!
The strategy genre is mostly associated with PC and even mobile platforms. But what about Switch? Isn’t that all kart racers and platformers? This misunderstanding is why we feel compelled to intervene tactically. Because the eShop has a hefty selection of strategy games to choose from. Today on HiGift blog we introduce best strategy games for Nintendo Switch.
As you might guess, this includes a slew of Advance Wars-style titles, as well as Nintendo’s own Fire Emblem series. However, there are a number of indie roguelikes, several deep management simulations, and even a few of those tough PC series.
Top 10 Best Strategy Games for Nintendo Switch
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Nintendo’s flagship strategy game for the Switch, is the series’ most ambitious and technically outstanding game. Nothing else compares to it when it comes to combining finely tuned turn-based fantasy tactics with fully narrated story sections.
Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
It’s one of those “what a time to be alive” moments when you realize you can play Civilization VI on your ickle Switch. The king of 4X strategy games also performs admirably on Nintendo’s system. If you’re unfamiliar with the Civilization series, you play as a ruler in a certain country and rise to become one of the country’s greatest historical leaders. Consider Cleopatra in Egypt, Caesar in Rome, or Alexander the Great, to name a few. Then you begin to grow your country in all areas, including scientific research, cultural, military, and urban development.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
Nintendo’s mascot and Ubisoft’s… rabitty… animals are an unexpected pairing. And, of all things, in a strategy game. However, with a surprising tactical edge and cute presentation, this team-based team up actually works.
Bad North is one of the best things to happen to strategy in a long time, perfecting the fundamentals of real-time strategy for intuitive play. As you protect your islands against the Viking onslaught, there’s a little tower defense here as well.
XCOM 2 Collection
The Switch version of one of the best team-based strategy games is now available. Even if the graphics have had to be toned back a few notches, XCOM 2 Collection gives you an extraordinarily generous package loaded with lush 3D tactical warfare.
Let’s go over the XCOM setting quickly if you’re not familiar with them. Aliens are invading Earth, and as governments fall, they are preparing to seal humanity’s doom. You’re in charge of the last remaining resistance group that isn’t going down without a fight, attempting to drive the aliens back while barely surviving their attacks and pressure. Despite the fact that it appears to be a lousy movie twist and a huge cliché, it is not.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Deluxe Edition
The team-based strategy game Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Deluxe Edition adds a unique twist to the genre. The game’s origins in a Swedish role-playing game add a bit more flavor to some solid XCOM-style fights.
A massive PC city-building game that’s been expertly shrink-wrapped for Nintendo’s console, complete with redesigned menus and simplified features. It’s the most comprehensive way to create and administer your own banana republic on Switch.
The Banner Saga
On Switch, you can play the full Banner Saga series, and we recommend starting at the beginning. But it’s a thing of hardbitten beauty, half narrative adventure, part team-based strategy game, and with a memorable Nordic fantasy graphic style.
You’ll follow the stories of several characters in the probable Ragnarok setting in all three sections of this gorgeous saga. Each of them has a distinct aim, personality, and set of skills. Make sensible decisions because they will have a significant impact on the rest of the game.
This War of Mine: Complete Edition
This War of Mine: Complete Edition is one of the grittier, more depressing Nintendo games available. But it’s also incredibly wonderful as a side-on slice of post-apocalyptic survival tactics.
PixelJunk Monsters 2
You can always count on Q Games and its PixelJunk series to deliver a unique spin on every genre it tackles. PixelJunk Monsters 2 is a charming tower defense game in which you control a single hero and protect a stunning tilt-shift planet.
We are delighted to make you happy 🙂
