Pass a controller and gear up for these co-op games

Grab a buddy and have some fun

Playing single-player games can be a blast, but sometimes you just want to share the fun with a friend. Luckily, there are several games on the Nintendo Switch™ system where a second player can join you on your quest! Please take a look at our list of games that you can cozy up to with couch co-op.

Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns:

Unravel Two:

When you’re looking for adventure, it helps to see from a different perspective – or two. Dive into an immersive story filled with energy, exuberance, inspiration, and even monsters. Awaken the world around you and discover an unbreakable bond between friends.

Luigi's Mansion 3:

Armed with his trusty Poltergust G-00, Luigi must explore the mysterious, towering Last Resort hotel as he searches for his missing friends. Have a friend play as Gooigi to overcome the puzzling contraptions and mischievous boss on each themed floor—together!

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda:

ACA NEOGEO METAL SLUG 5:

The Ptolemaic Army has stolen some very confidential files! Choose from four familiar faces: Marco, Eri, Tarma, or Fio to take them down. Under water or in the air, you and a friend can wage an assault on enemies and take up arms against the ultimate weapon of destruction, “The Doomsday Machine.”

I'm glad Unravel Two made the list, it's a really good game.
But why Super Mario Odyssey? The second player is too limited in what they can do, I can't imagine anyone actually enjoying playing through the whole game as Cappy. It's something you might try for 5-10 minutes and then give your half of the Joy-Con back to the other player.
