Top 5 Free Switch Games of 2010


Whether you’re looking to play some frantic action games, or you want to find some games that are a bit more relaxing, there are plenty of free switch games to choose from. These days, you’ll find a vast selection of great games, so there’s sure to be something to suit your tastes.

Tetris 99

Developed by Arika and published by Nintendo, Tetris 99 is a game that features a battle royale mode with up to 99 players. The game can be played in both offline and online ways. The game can be downloaded from the Nintendo eShop for free.

The game features a “Garbage Block” that players can use to target other players. They can also attack other players and use these blocks to knock them out of the game. Eventually, the playable area shrinks, making the game more complex and faster.

Rocket League

Whether or not you’re into sports games, Rocket League is a title worth a look at. This physics-based soccer game uses rocket-powered vehicles to shoot a ball into the opposing team’s goal. Players are in groups of eight, and each team’s goal is to force the ball into the other team’s net.

The game has been around for a while, and the latest update adds a few new game modes and items. New features include a Rocket Pass, which allows players to purchase various goals and rewards. There are also new item packs and tournaments, which will offer players tournament credits. Lastly, an in-game event called Llama-Rama will allow players to unlock various rewards.

Apex Legends

Developed by Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, Apex Legends is a free-to-play Battle Royale game that lets players battle it out to survive in the storied arena. While the game may be a bit confusing initially, it’s also easy to get into.

You’ll need a Nintendo Account and a stable, wireless internet connection to play Apex Legends on the Switch. Once you’ve set up your profile, you’ll be able to access the Nintendo eShop and navigate through various titles.

Fallout Shelter

Unlike a game of thrones, Fallout Shelter on the Switch is a free-to-play mobile. It’s an RPG sim/strategy game set in a post-apocalyptic universe where nuclear survivors live in vaults, a la The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. The game has a surprisingly rich feature set and rewards players with a rich experience.

The game boasts a hefty array of weapons, perks, and an affluent community to play with. The game also features a slick mobile game controller that makes the mobile play as seamless as it is in a full-blown console. As a result, the game boasts a relatively robust and comprehensive set of features and is a good fit for anyone with a Nintendo Switch.

Knockout City

Earlier this year, Velan Studios announced plans to publish Knockout City. In addition to being free-to-play, the game will feature a variety of new features and cosmetics. Among these are a new sci-flyer crew vehicle and a new ball.

Knockout City is currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The game features multiplayer action, team-based battles, and six different balls. In addition, its unique abilities allow players to customize their character.

The game has a didactic tutorial that teaches players basic throwing, catching, and pairing techniques. Players can also earn new items by completing certain activities.


Earlier this year, Phoenix Labs teased a Dauntless Switch port. And thankfully, it’s coming out later this year! And it’s great.

Dauntless is a free-to-play action game heavily inspired by the Monster Hunter series. In addition, it’s a cross-platform game, meaning you can play with friends on your PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch.

The game’s focus is on the hunt, though inventory management and exploration also play a part. You can also craft new weapons, armor, and improved gear. The more you craft, the more you can level up your character, which is essential for improving your abilities.


Originally a barebones free-to-play experiment, Warframe has now been developed into a full-fledged third-person shooter. Players can travel through a large and open universe, fight hordes of enemies, or take on a mission solo or with friends.

Warframe offers a complicated system that allows players to customize their characters and weapons. Players can also create and nurture pets. The game features over 300 weapons, 18 worlds, and thousands of customization options.

The game can be played with up to three friends. Warframe also has the unique feature of being a games-as-a-service title, meaning players don’t have to pay to access the game’s online elements.

Knockout Bash

During the April 27 to May 10 Rocket League event, players can participate in a new free-for-all knockout game mode. This limited-time mode will feature a variety of new mechanics, Spring-themed challenge rewards, and Golden Gift Baskets.

There are three unique arenas available in Knockout Bash. Each hall has its unique obstacle placement and shape. They are surrounded by a translucent dome called the Safezone, which shrinks over time. The game’s goal is to be the last player left in the Safezone when the game ends.
