1With Switch, You Can Play Metroidvanias Anywhere

Thanks to the Switch’s portable capabilities, playing a Metroidvania isn’t something you have to do while sat in front of your TV.

In the past, the Castlevania series has been one of the best sources of portable Metroidvanias; from Castlevania: Circle of the Moon on Game Boy Advance, to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate on the 3DS. Unfortunately though, the series has yet to make the jump to the Nintendo Switch.

Thankfully, there are enough alternatives available to make the lack of a new Castlevania not much of a worry. The Switch offers plenty of games that promote exploration throughout an interconnected world, filled with plenty of platforming and light RPG elements, so why not give one a try if you’re after a new Metroidvania to sink your teeth into? These really are the best Metroidvanias available right now on Switch.
