The Nintendo Switch has an amazing library, but the hybrid console’s massive catalog of RPGs is truly staggering. There are loot-packed dungeon crawlers, JRPGs with turn-based battles and epic stories, expansive open-world games where you can create your own unique character, and everything in between. So, to help you find your next RPG, we put together this list of the 40 best Switch RPGs (in alphabetical order).
There are so many excellent RPGs on Switch already that even our whopping list of 40 games can’t encapsulate the genre’s towering presence on the system, so it’s likely we missed at least a few gems here. But there’s no doubt that the genre is well-represented on Nintendo Switch. From console exclusives such as Shin Megami Tensei V and Fire Emblem: Three Houses to brilliant third-party games such as Dragon Quest 11 and Trails of Cold Steel, RPG fans have a ridiculous treasure trove to uncover on Switch. It’s not just big AAA games either; the Switch is home to some stellar indie RPGs such as Golf Story, Eastward, Super Daryl Deluxe, and plenty more.
