Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Best first party Switch exclusive

Well, there's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Luigi's Mansion 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Splatoon 2, and ÀRMS to name a few.

Around the Network

Super Mario Odyssey is the best.

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Not sure I could name one. You limited the field quite a bit.
Remind me what "first party" is again? Astral chain was made by Platinum who is third party company.
But Nintendo owns the IP. So is that first party? or Second?

So do you want Nintendo owned, Nintendo made, only on Switch?

edit: Also does similar to wii u count? Like Pikmin 3, or Mario kart?

Games on Wii U like BOTW , Pikmin 3, and Mario Kart aren't exclusive to Switch, so those don't count.

Admittedly "first party" can be a blurry definition; I don't see a problem including Astral Chain as it's funded, owned, and published by Nintendo.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and 3

Hard to limit to just 1 but I would say Smash Bros.

For me it's between Mario Odyssey & Smash Bros

Astral Chain for a couple more days. Xenoblade 3 not far behind.

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Metroid Dread

Ring Fit Adventure

If hours played is something to go by, Smash Ultimate followed by new Pokémon Snap and Tetris99.
But I think Smash takes it. That game is larger than life in a way that is hard for anything to match.
