1These Switch Games are Better When Played Together

Cuphead Body 2

There’s nothing finer than enjoying a good game with your friends and family by your side, and if you own an Nintendo Switch, it couldn’t be any easier.

Thanks to the revolutionary Joy-Con controllers, you can enjoy playing plenty of Switch games in co-op without even needing to buy an additional controller. Nifty, eh? If you plan to play couch co-op games on Switch quite often though, we would recommend picking up another pad at some point – unless you’ve got child-sized hands, the Joy-Cons aren’t very comfortable for long stretches of time.

Still, it’s a fantastic feature that makes the Switch the perfect console to indulge in a bit of local co-op (or competition, if you prefer). Just don’t get too competitive now, you hear? Those Joy-Cons aren’t cheap to replace, so don’t go launching them across the room!

Anyway, without further ado, here’s our pick of the best couch co-op games currently available on Switch.
