Best Nintendo Switch Football Game-Guide


When we release this news, the 2020 European Championship is about to begin…in 2021. Yes, this is weird, and we also realize that being a football/soccer fan who happens to own the Switch can be tricky. Nintendo’s system both missed premium games and was bombarded by other smaller versions, and it was difficult to know which games to get.

We have not reviewed Every A football game on Switch, so let’s be frank, there may be something worth checking out in this list. However, we have reviewed enough content to share 11 of the better winners here-oh yes, how smart we are-and there are many more types to find. If you want simulation, tactics, comedy or arcade action, there is always something for you.

Below we have selected-in no particular order-the best football games we have played on Switch. enjoy!

Rocket League (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Psyonix Studio / Developer: Psyonix Studio

Release date: November 14, 2017 (United States) / November 14, 2017 (UK/EU)

Let’s take this out first, so that pedantic arguments can be resolved immediately. No, the Rockets are not technically football-cars have no feet. But it’s great, there is a very reliable port on the Switch, and it involves being a member of the team and sending the ball into the opponent’s goal. It sounds a lot like football, the main difference is that you are in a turbocharged car.

Not only does it work well on Switch, but the online game is completely cross-platform, you can be guaranteed to find a match (casual or ranking), and all regular content updates can be found here. This is the full version of one of the most popular games in the world, and I am glad to have it.

Football quarrel (Neo Geo)Football quarrel (Neo Geo)

Publisher: SNK / Developer: SNK

Release date: February 14, 1992 (United States) / November 22, 2017 (UK/EU)

Neo Geo has many football matches, some of which are on the eShop.they have Astonishing In the author’s opinion, the sound design is reasonable, and of course you should expect basic “arcade” actions.

Soccer Brawl has some similarities with Super Sidekicks, for example, except that the players wear body armor and there are almost no rules; it is stupid and reckless, so it can bring a lot of fun in a short period of time. Rebounds on the wall, foul with impunity-it’s like playing futsal in school in the past.

Football Manager 2021 Touch (Switch eShop)Football Manager 2021 Touch (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Sega / Developer: Sports interaction

Release date: December 14, 2020 (United States) / December 14, 2020 (UK/EU)

Football managers are responsible for many unemployment, degree failures, and interpersonal failures; glorified spreadsheets have never been so charming and addictive. For those who have invested thousands of hours in the series, there may be a treatment team that carefully builds a strong team to bring the Newport County AFC to the glory of the Champions League.

The Switch version of the tactical simulation series is based on the “Touch” game originally released for mobile phones and tablets. Some people actually prefer the semi-skimmed version of this series because it removes some of the complexity of the full-fat main game. It is still detailed enough, and it can be said that it brings the series closer to the simple era of the “Champion Manager” era, and is a great way to pass the time on the Switch.

Captain Yi: The Rise of a New Champion (Switch)Captain Yi: The Rise of a New Champion (Switch)

Publisher: Bandai Namco / Developer: Teng soft

Release date: August 28, 2020 (United States) / August 28, 2020 (UK/EU)

This series is quite popular in Japan, spanning various media and games for decades; in the West? Not that much. This is why it was a surprise to win “Captain Wing: The Rise of New Champions” last year. It is actually a very solid game and a very unique sport at the same time.

You can play a few story clips, then Vs CPU and online games-although getting online games can be tricky. This is a weird football game that requires attention to various dodges, combinations and endurance; this is not a typical football game. It looks great and provides a time of entertainment that completely surpasses the sport.

Rising Star Manager (Switch eShop)Rising Star Manager (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Five Kings Publishing Company / Developer: Rising Star Games

Release date: January 31, 2019 (United States) / January 31, 2019 (UK/EU)

You might think “Football Manager is on the list, this applies to simulation games”, but it’s not that simple. Not everyone wants to delve into complex management. On the one hand, this title—although it originated in mobile—takes a slightly different approach.

On the one hand, team selection and strategy feels more like a card-based strategy game, while your club’s infrastructure work feels more like a simple construction simulation game.Once you enter the game, you actually play Offensive highlights, the game is in your hands, not just passive watching. It is a bit low-fidelity, but it does enough unique things in its method to keep us interested.

Behold the Kickmen (Switch eShop)Behold the Kickmen (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Ant Workshop / Developer: Big and small games

Release date: June 18, 2020 (United States) / June 18, 2020 (UK/EU)

This is an interesting entry on the list because it was made by the critically acclaimed game maker Dan Marshall, who happily admitted that he knew nothing about football. So this is ultimately a comedic outsider’s view of beautiful games, and it’s pretty good.

It costs less than a cup of coffee and relies heavily on humorous writing and ridiculous rules-the court is round, the ball can bounce from both sides, and scoring will give you the referee’s “sloppy kiss”. He is called ” Referee”, there is more madness. As a cheap and stupid time, it is definitely worth a visit to Switch.
