10. Astral Chain (Deserves The Place on Adventure Switch Games)

Do you enjoy playing video games with graphics that of a well-seasoned anime? Because you are in for a treat, Astral Chain showcases a modern society with characters that may look similar to that of a fantasy anime.

The video game Astral Chain has a plot, that if someone narrates it out loud it may sound like they are reading the premise of a Korean anime. The video game is about saving a city from aliens that appear from a strange dimension through a portal. Our task is to hunt down those evil beings, and stop them from causing mass destruction.

With its meticulous detail in the artwork, Astral Chain also, explores stunning visuals and beautiful combat mechanisms.

09. Kirby and the Forgotten Land

What are your thoughts on playing a video game, where you play as a cute and tiny character? Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a video game where you play a pinkish puffball named Kirby. Who is willing to do anything or go beyond the horizon to save his friends from any harm.

At the start of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Kirby finds himself in the Forgotten Land and learns that Waddle Dees is missing. Kirby alongside his friend Elfilin sets on an adventure to find Waddle Dees and get back home safely.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is the meaning of the adventure genre, you have to complete difficult puzzles to advance.

08. Okami HD

Okami is the Japanese word for God and in Japanese mythology and Shinto, a certain god is often described as either a nine-tailed fox or the fox in general.

The premise of Okami HD may be simple and predictable but has a unique way of narrating the lore. It tells about how a white fox named Amaterasu and an artist named Issun are on an adventure to bring peace to the world by defeating Orochi and other evil beings.

What’s best about Okami HD, is its presentation of Japanese culture and mythology, packed inside a violent action video game. A gamer will learn a lot more about Japanese culture by playing Okami HD, it’s a game we recommend to history freaks.

07. Bayonetta 2

Always mentioning the country where the game is from is not necessary, because most of the games on this list are from Japan. Bayonetta is a popular video game franchise, where we play a character called Bayonetta. The narrative begins with Bayonetta and her friend Jeanne being attacked by an angel, but things don’t go as planned. In an effort to save Bayonetta, Jeanne jumps in to save her friend but as a result, she is transported to the underworld. Bayonetta then sets on an adventure to find and save her friend and get her back to the world.

The video game has an adult cast and a long plot that is without a doubt entertaining. The game’s combat mechanics and action scenes are far better than its predecessor, Bayonetta.

06. Inside (One of the Best Switch Adventure Games)

After talking about some luminous games are you ready to jump into the dark-themed video game? Inside is a video game that explores the themes of mystery, dark atmosphere, puzzles, and seriousness. The game may not sound as scary as it looks on the cover, but you might find it terrifying when playing it alone.

The game follows the adventure of a strong-willed boy living in a dystopian world. He is trying to survive and find a peaceful place. There is a blob chunk of meat in the game with tentacles-like arms sticking out of it. Plus these weird creatures don’t make any sound, which makes the game a little disturbing.

05. Ori And The Will Of The Wisps

The animation, stunning visuals, and beautiful landscapes of Ori And The Will Of The Wisps make it difficult to rate. It’s a sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest and continues from where it left off. The video game tells the story of Ku and Ori, while flying together, a storm hits them, separating both. Ori sets on an adventure to find Ku and get him back home.

The game depicts the journey of Ori, and how along the way, they come across different individuals and grow their skills. The game is about emotions, no matter how much you praise its animation and artwork, but still, all praise falls short.

04. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

For most, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is the best video game. but comparing it to the video games on top of our list, it surely falls short. While the franchise has been running for a very long time, its popularity certainly has boosted because of the latest installment. The game is set in an unrealistic world, where a kingdom named Hyrule is famous for its diverse locations that a gamer can explore.

The Tale of Zelda is about a character named Link, one day he wakes up from slumber to fight against evil, Calamity Ganon. The game revolves around him and his adventures. It’s fun to explore various locations and find treasures hidden beneath mountains and bridges.

03. A Short Hike (Best Adventure game among switch Games)

A Short Hike is short just like the title says, but it showcases the peaceful landscapes of a mountain through a bird’s perspective. The plot isn’t certainly something we could praise the video game for, but on the other hand, it’s the reason the video game stands out above the previous video games on this list. We start with a bird and have to explore the mountain, find treasure and freely wander around the map.

A Short Hike is mostly known for its relaxing gameplay and flying mechanism. It’s a video game that you can’t miss if you are into emotional stories.

02. Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight is a masterpiece and is one of the finest Metroidvania out there. It’s an epic tale of The Knight through a vast kingdom, called Hallownest. That’s been abandoned for a very long time and still, to this date, no one dares to set foot. It’s our job to inspect the places and behold the secrets Hallownest and its bizarre residents are hiding.

Throughout the video game, we discover abnormal creatures, some are friendly while some intend to harm. But Hollow Knight’s cunning plot excels at keeping the viewer attached.

01. Super Mario Odyssey

With a recent film that’s still at the top of the charts, Super Mario is more famous than ever. It’s also a game that has sold multimillion copies. Enough with stats lets talk about what will you see in Super Mario Odyssey. The game follows Mario, which is to be expected from a Mario game, he sets on an adventure to save the princess from Bowser. On his journey, he overtakes many obstacles and faces different challenges.

The plot of Super Mario Odyssey is nothing new, it approaches the theme that was initially used in Monkey Kong, saving the princess from the evil guy. But it’s a Mario Game, there is more to judge than the story.
