Nintendo Switch Cross-Play Games: The Complete List

All the Switch games that cross the divide.

If you’d told any gamer at the start of the generation that Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo would begin working together to enable cross-play, they probably would have laughed in your face. The thought of long-time rivals partnering up to allow players across multiple devices to take part in the same multiplayer game was pretty far-fetched, especially where Nintendo are concerned as they’ve always kind of done their own thing.

It wasn’t Nintendo who proved to be a stumbling block for cross console-play, however. With their big lead in the “console wars” and a wish to protect what they had, Sony were the ones who posed the most resistance, only recently buckling and allowing console cross-play properly. Nintendo and Microsoft led the charge with Epic’s Fortnite being the biggest catalyst with its community annoyed that only the PS4 was left out in the cold.

With Switch cross-play across all possible platforms now a reality, it’s time to look at all of the games you can already play with friends on other devices. It’s worth nothing here that the Switch isn’t that heavily focused on multiplayer compared to other platforms, so this is more of a slender list. You should expect that to change over time, however.
