1These are the hardest games on Switch

Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection 3 (1)

Some players shy away from a challenge. Others, however, revel in them.

Most games these days try to cater for all audiences, offering multiple difficulty levels that tweak things such as enemy health and the number of checkpoints available. Some developers, however, are adamant on making their games hard. They want to push players to their limits and then perhaps even further. If that sounds appealing to you and you own a Nintendo Switch, then you’re probably wondering what the hardest games on the format are.

For that reason, we’ve put together a list of the hardest games on Switch. Each and every one of these will surely test your gaming skills, and perhaps even your patience. The quality of them though, will mean that even when you’re frustrated you’ll return to them time and time again. They’re all hard, maybe even unfairly so at times, but you’ll want to overcome the challenges they throw at you. So, take a gander. You might just find your next gaming obsession.
