19 of the best cheap Nintendo Switch games

UPDATED: Affordable games to keep you playing all summer long

If you own a Nintendo Switch, you really owe it to yourself to buy heavy-hitters like Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of the Wild – but beyond those games, you don't have to break the bank to keep up a steady stream of gaming on the go.

The Switch's digital eShop is pretty packed with great games now, and many of them can be had for very little cash at all. In fact, we've picked 19 games that we love that all sell for £17/US$20 or less apiece, including indie favourites and multi-million-selling smashes alike.

You can't go wrong with any of these, so if you're seeking something fun and affordable that you can download right now, then give these a whirl. And if you're looking for the most amazing Switch games regardless of asking price, click here for our must-play picks.

Rocket League (£15/US$20)

Rocket League is already one of the most entertaining games you can play on a console or PC, and now with this Nintendo Switch port, we can play its brilliant blend of arcade driving and football wherever we are. It's a speedy, rules-relaxed take on 3v3 football at its core, but instead of hustling down the pitch on your own two feet, you'll zoom around in a rocket-boosted car.

And it can fly, too, with aerial play taking a big role in the equation, along with driving along the walls. Rocket League's online play is second to none in terms of quick-hit entertainment, with basketball, hockey, and other variants joining the footie fun. The visuals take a slight hit from other platforms, but fuzzy graphics can't kill the excitement.
