1Great Switch Games for Younger Players

Nintendo consoles have always had an image of being more family friendly than their competitors.

With the likes of Mario and Yoshi representing the company, how could you think otherwise? But with the Nintendo Switch, the company’s image of being “just for kids” has shifted. The console has opened up, allowing more adult-only games into its library, like Borderlands and DOOM. It’s great news for older gamers, but perhaps not for parents looking for child-friendly games without worry of their kids running into unsuitable content.

Thankfully, there’s still an absolute treasure trove of wonderful games for children on Nintendo Switch. The wider library just means that parents have to exercise a little caution before letting younger players have free reign. The Switch is still one of the best consoles out there for kids – especially since the Joy-Con controller easily lets siblings play together with just one console. Click on through to see the best Switch games for kids.
