Nintendo Switch Games with the Best Graphics

The Top Ten
1 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Hyrule is absolutely enormous in scale, and at any point where you can get a great enough view, you can see all of it in spectacular detail thanks to the absolutely crazy draw distances. Of note is the first scene when Link runs out of the Shrine of Resurrection and, as the main theme for this iteration plays, the camera pans up and reveals Hyrule in all of its beauty.

Has impressive graphics, and the game runs really well. But the platform in some parts of the game looks wacky.

This is brilliant, and the best Nintendo has ever done.

2 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Turn on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Pick a track. Any track, new or returning. The level of detail is nothing short of remarkable. Nintendo really went to town for this one.

The graphics are amazing, awesome, and very cool.

3 1-2 Switch
4 LEGO City Undercover
5 The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+
6 Super Bomberman R
7 Arms
8 Super Mario Odyssey

One look at the trailer, and you will see why everyone is impressed: the visuals are beautiful. In terms of graphics, this game has a bigger difference between it and Galaxy than between Galaxy and Mario 64. Keep in mind that Galaxy doesn't even look a day old at this point.

This game has absolutely beautiful graphics! Bonus points for the fact that it's a Mario game, and Mario games don't usually have graphics as good as this.

Wow, the graphics look amazing!

9 Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers
10 Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Graphics equal to Zelda, much better than Mario or Bomberman.

The graphics are amazing and are far better than Zelda or Mario Odyssey.

The Contenders
11 Bendy and the Ink Machine
12 Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 has the best color palette out of any real video game right now, which is impressive by itself, but even more so for a shooter, and a post-apocalyptic one at that. Everything moves fast and without difficulty, and it's just a whole lot of fun to watch. The characters have a distinct 1990s Nickelodeon/Anime hybrid style to them.

Definitely the best graphics, if I do say so myself. I love the way the ink you swing around splatters across the floor! Recommended for people who love Call of Duty or are fans of bright colors.

13 Little Nightmares
14 Puyo Puyo Tetris
15 Octopath Traveler
16 Warframe
17 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Graphically, this is the best Smash game. The visuals are very good, and the character models have better shading.

The polygon count is quite neat.

18 Outlast 2

Is currently the most realistic-looking game on the Switch.

19 Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice
20 FIFA 19

Has better graphics compared to FIFA games on other Nintendo consoles and mobile. If compared to FIFA 19 on Xbox One and PS4, then the Nintendo Switch lacks those types of graphics and gameplay. Hope FIFA 22 comes out for the Switch as a Frostbite edition.

21 The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
22 Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition
23 Xenoblade Chronicles 3
24 Fast RMX

The graphics are so amazing. If you look at footage of the game, it looks great. And the experience is game-changing in handheld mode. There truly isn't anything like it.
