Diablo III Eternal Collection

Blizzard’s highly anticipated sequel to one of the best dungeon crawling ARPGs of its time made its way to the Nintendo Switch last November. If you haven’t already, then Diablo III is absolutely worth getting on the Switch – not only is the system perfect for immersive dungeon crawlers, it’s also packed with a plethora of exclusive features that you only get for playing on the handheld, like pieces of the world of Zelda in Sanctuary, as well as a cucco companion pet, a Triforce portrait frame, and an exclusive transmogrification set that will let your heroes sport Ganondorf's iconic armor.

Story wise, you once again play as one of seven classes tasked with defeating the ultimate lord of terror, Diablo. It doesn’t get much simpler than that, and it doesn’t really have to, as Diablo III’s gameplay speaks for itself. This edition with the Switch, called the Eternal Collection, also bundles together the two expansion packs released for the game – Reaper of Souls and Rise of the Necromancer, both worthy additions to your Diablo III experience.

Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 2

Milestone’s second crack at the supercross genre, Monster Energy Supercross 2 is an improvement in every way over its predecessor. It’s gnarly and features amazing action as you battle your way across the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, which features official tracks and more than 80 official riders from 250SX and 450SX, including superstars Jason Anderson, Marvin Musquin, and Eli Tomac. The renewed career mode is also a breath of fresh air, letting you train in your very own compound area as well as allowing you to set up your own weekly schedule filled with challenges, sponsor attractions and fan meet-ups.

Customization is quite extensive as well, as Monster Energy Supercross 2 brings more than 3,000 unique items in order to sculpt the biker of your dreams along with a character creator system to make your avatar as you see fit. Best of all, Monster Energy Supercross 2 comes with the enhanced version of the fan favorite track editor, which features easy accessibility thanks to the in-game tutorial and renewed UI graphics.

MudRunner - American Wilds Edition

Saber Interactive’s MudRunner is one of the best off-road experiences out there, as it pits you, your chosen truck and your wits against some of the most extreme Siberian landscapes with only a map and compass as guides. It’s frustrating, and at times very infuriating, but for the person who puts in the work, you’ll find that getting stuck in the deep mud or getting carried away by perilous rivers is just another thing to be cautious about as you do everything in your power to deliver those goods while keeping your truck – and sanity – intact.

MudRunner features 19 incredibly detailed all-terrain vehicles, all of which you will drive in wild, untamed landscapes under extreme conditions with dynamic day-night cycles. The game also features a very immersive sandbox environment that flourishes under player creativity, allowing you to tackle any challenge as you see fit. This special edition for the Switch, the American Wilds Edition, also adds nine more trucks to your collection, all of them from iconic American brands like Ford, Hummer, and Chevrolet. You also get two sandbox maps inspired by the rough lands of Montana and North Dakota, and two new challenge maps to up your game even further.

FUN! FUN! Animal Park

If you’ve just extensively exhausted yourself in playing Super Mario Party and you find yourself in the market for something similar, then maybe Aksys’ FUN! FUN! Animal Park might be something up your alley. It’s one of the titles made to utilize the Switch's motion controls, leading to a fun, original and enjoyable gameplay fit for the whole family. FUN! FUN! Animal Park features 30 unique minigames that prominently utilize the Joy-Cons’ intuitive motion controls, as well as easily understandable rules, which allows players of all ages and across various experience levels to join in on the fun.

FUN! FUN! Animal Park also features three modes to play including: Tour Mode, which sees two players guided through the whimsical Animal Land, competing in a series of matches to determine the ultimate winner; One Match Mode, where players compete in one standalone round of their favorite minigame; and Solo Mode, where players can work to break their own records, playing on their own to achieve the highest score possible.

Gal Metal - 'World Tour' Edition

Rhythm games on the Switch make for some of the weirdest titles ever, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth playing. If anything, it should interest you even more, in particular a title like Gal Metal, which blends in the Joy-Con’s motion controls to create one of the most unique rhythm games of its time. Gal Metal turns your controllers into a pair of drum sticks for a brand-new rhythm game experience, set across 13 different tracks without any sheet music, or even rhythm icons.

Weirdly enough, you also play as a high school boy whose soul is transplanted into that of a high school girl following a sinister experiment by the Octoids, an extraterrestrial species. Following these turn of events, the boy’s soul now works with the girl he shares the body with in order to defeat these invaders with their greatest weakness, metal music, along with the girl’s high school band, the KMG (Kichijoji Metal Girls).

Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!

Any Pokémon fan will know that the recent popularity of Pokémon Go has pushed the series into a new direction, one that’s aimed at a wider, more casual market, but still retaining the elements of what made the franchise a multibillion-dollar powerhouse. The first two games in the series, Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!, hold up well in this regard, and now for Prime Day you can get in on the action as the title is one of the few first-party Nintendo games receiving a special deal.

Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! pairs you with the pocket monster Eevee as you return to the series’ roots in the Kanto region, in a direct storytelling sequel for Pokémon Yellow. The game also features some very neat integration with the mobile title Pokémon Go, allowing you to catch Pokémon while outside and add them to the in-game Pokédex.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Everyone’s favorite marsupial is starring in his own karting game this year, which recently launched to critical and commercial success, but it was in his outing last year for the Nintendo Switch in which he made the biggest body slam of his career. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is an amazing remaster for Crash’s first three adventures on the original PlayStation, with the added bonus that you can now play it in handheld mode everywhere you go through the Nintendo Switch.

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy features an expertly crafted reimagining of the original Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot Warped in one complete package, with some added features to boot. This time around, you also get to play as Crash’s sister, Coco Bandicoot, across all games in the series. Test your mettle in over a hundred levels across three full games, with two added bonus levels that are remade from the ground up.

Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster

Earlier this year, Square Enix made waves when it announced that two of its classic Final Fantasy titles, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, will be coming to both the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox One. If you thought that its initial pricing left much to be desired, then you’ll be glad to know that it will be getting its own Prime Day deal for the next two days, which is something every fan of the series should take advantage of. Containing both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2, the Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster boasts about 40 to 50 hours of gameplay time per title.

Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster boasts updated graphics in the form of new and updated textures. It also has several quality of life improvements that are a welcome addition over the original titles, while not taking away from the core of the story, which is that of Tidus and Yuna saving the world from destruction by a monster named Sin. The collection also includes several bonuses, like the short film called Eternal Calm , which bridges the timelines of Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2. It’s a good way to experience the stories as they were meant to be told.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI

For lovers of the turn-based 4X strategy genre, there’s no better series to get into than Sid Meier's Civilization, which is now on its sixth iteration. What’s more, you can now enjoy the series' only release on the Nintendo Switch to date, Civilization VI, at a much lower price thanks to Prime Day. Civilization VI lets you shape the growing world as you see fit, as you explore it, advance your culture, wage war, and make peace as you compete against history’s most renowned leaders to build an empire that will stand the test of time.

Sid Meier's Civilization VI on the Nintendo Switch also comes with the latest updates and improvements made to the game, as well as four pieces of additional content that adds new civilizations, leaders, and scenarios. These are the Viking Scenario Pack, Poland Civilization and Scenario Pack, Australia Civilization and Scenario Pack, and the Persia and Macedon Civilization and Scenario Pack. The unique nature of the Switch also allows for a unique four-person co-op or competitive mode via wireless LAN.

LEGO City Undercover

The Wii U classic LEGO title finally makes its way to the Switch, available to play fully remastered for a brand-new, yet all too familiar experience. LEGO City Undercover is the first ever LEGO video game that is not based on any other brand, but on the LEGO play set itself. With Prime Day you can experience its wacky and highly enjoyable tone in a handheld setting, making for quite the comfy playthrough.

LEGO City Undercover sees you playing as Chase McCain, a police officer who's been tasked with going undercover to hunt down the notorious — and recently escaped — criminal Rex Fury and putting an end to his city-wide crime wave. The game features a single-player campaign as well as room for one more in the two-player co-op campaign. In both modes, you and a friend can explore the sprawling open-world metropolis that is LEGO City, with more than 20 unique districts to investigate, car thieves to bust, hilarious movie references to discover, vehicles to drive, and hundreds of collectibles to... well... collect.
