FREE Games For Nintendo Switch
As well as the paid-for Nintendo Switch Online service, there are also lots of games that are completely FREE to download and play without a subscription. The 'free-to-start' games will let you either download and play the full game for free, or you're playing a free demo.
Just added for Pokemon fans is Pokemon Cafe Mix*, where you can run and build up your very own eatery in this free-to-start puzzle game, available to download on Nintendo Switch. You get to take the orders from your Pokémon customers and craft tasty treats, by completing satisfying icon matching puzzles. It's also free to download on Google Play* for android mobile devices.
Also recently added to the 'free-to-start' games is Rocket League*, and that's well worth grabbing to keep the kids busy. My son loves it says it's 'cars playing football', though the official description says it's "a high-octane hybrid of arcade-style soccer and vehicular mayhem!" It'd definitely great fun, is suitable for all ages from 3 upwards, and is fab for a freebie.
Another new addition to the 'free-to-start' games is Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade*. There are 180 fun levels to enjoy, perfectly suited for short bursts of gaming. Kids need to use skill and logic to save bunnies from a cunning fox, and collect carrots to get new bunnies.
(NB: If a game says it's a Nintendo Switch Online exclusive you need to have the paid subscription to download and play for free. This includes games like Super Mario Bros 35 and Tetris 99).
How much does the Switch cost?
The Nintendo Switch console has an RRP of £279.99, and although you can get the console for a few pounds cheaper than that it's much better value to get a bundle deal where you get the Nintendo Switch console plus a game or two.
Is Fortnite free on Nintendo Switch?
Yes, Fortnite is free to play on the Nintendo Switch. Other online games require a paid Nintendo Switch Online Membership for the co-op and competitive online features, including Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but Fortnite is an exception, and can be played online without paid membership.
Is Nintendo Online free?
Nintendo Switch Online Membership* is no longer free, as charges were introduced in September 2018. Prices start at £3.49 for a one month membership, though it's cheaper to get the 12 months for £17.99. There are family offers too if you have multiple switch consoles in the same home.
Can I play my 3DS games on the Switch?
No, you cannot play Nintendo 3DS games on the Switch console as it's not backwards compatible, so you can only play Nintendo Switch games.
