Do you have an Nintendo Switch but don't have a lot of money to spend? We've put together a list of the best free Switch games for you!

Looking for something new to play but don't want to commit to paying for something? Lucky for you, the Nintendo Switch store is full of free games that you can download and play directly from the Nintendo eShop right on your Nintendo Switch. There is an entire section of the store that has games listed for free, completely free to play, but there can be many to choose from.

So we took the time to try out these free Switch games and share the ones we think are worth the limited space on your console!

1 Pokemon Quest

Pokémon Quest is a free Pokémon game on Switch, where you can prepare various recipes and battle your Pokémon against others on Tumblecube Island. All the Pokémon in this game are cube-like, bringing a very cute appearance to the title. You can use the food you make to attract more Pokémon to your base, which can then join your team. It's a simple, relaxing game and a fun way to pass the time.

2 Tetris 99

Tetris 99 is a stylized Battle Royale game where you are playing a game that gets more challenging and faster as time goes by. You are also playing against a bunch of other players and you can attack them, choosing your strategy and targeting the ones you want to knock out or who are above you. It's an intense version of Tetris. It's important to note that you need a Nintendo Online membership to play.

3 Rocket League

Rocket League is a super popular sports game that takes racing cars and mixes them with football – or football for our American friends. This makes for an intense arena game that is super addictive. You can drive your car around the side of the arena, hit the ball to launch it into your opponent's net and continue to accelerate and run around the arena! You can play in teams of three, and the team with the most points wins. Certainly one of the best free PvP games you can play on your Switch.

4 fortnite

Fortnite, while not currently available on the App Store, can be found for free on Nintendo Switch. If you haven't heard of Fortnite, it's a battle royale game where you and a group of people are thrown onto an island, building and fighting until only one person survives. You may find items to help you survive and explore the map, but make sure to always be on the lookout and watch out for others! 

5 Super Kirby Clash

Super Kirby Clash is a free game based on Team Kirby Clash Deluxe for the 3DS. This game is full of boss battles where you and three of your friends can team up as your selected Kirby to take on bosses. Defeat them one after another in hopes of advancing further in the game.

6 Brawlhalla

Brawlhalla is a fighting-based game, much like Super Smash Bros: Ultimate. There are many characters to choose from, weapons to learn and arenas to fight. This game has a ton of characters to try out, it offers a lot of content, and there's also a great community. Brawlhalla is a simpler fighting game – easier for people to learn and play. 

7 Color Zen

Zen Color is a more relaxing free puzzle game where you can use the Nintendo Switch touch screen to move the shapes around the screen making sure the last color that fills the screen is the same as the outer frame of the level . This is a simple game but as you complete the levels you will encounter more challenges like levels where only specific shapes can be moved or colors that are hiding in layers behind other colors.

8 Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter, a free game that was also released on mobile. It allows you to build safes that will withstand the toxicity of the world. You are able to build an entire radiation-proof resort, with rooms, food, and electricity, that everyone will want to move to. There are quests in the game, people to talk to, and a lot to manage. The game has in-app purchases, but you can basically ignore them and still enjoy the free game on Switch.

9 Warframe

Warframe is an action shooter with beautiful graphics and lots to unpack and understand. You will be exploring, looting and battling on an alien planet, facing off against other players and talking to NPCs as you explore. It's an impressive and shocking title that the entire game is free to play, but you can download it to your Nintendo Switch right now.

10 Realm Royale

Realm Royale is a game quite similar to Fortnite, however there is a focus on crafting items you find but don't want, which can make a huge difference when you decide how much time you want to spend looting and how much time you want to spend running around. You can craft all sorts of useful things as well as build and try to stay alive in this battle royale arena!

We hope you enjoyed our list of the best free games for Switch. We will probably update it as more cool games become available!
