    Recalled that there was a thread made for essential 3DS games, so I figure that one for Switch could be good.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    Wait for this E3 summer.

    That's why we are not buying Nintendo Switch right away. Zelda" Breath of the Wild is our eyes but want more good games including 3rd party supporting. If 3rd party supporting is really poor after E3 then wont buy it. Hope they have awesome 3rd party supporting like PS4 first. Wise is our things.

    It would be shocking if that game wasn't on the list. But, there are other games, like Snake Pass or even GEM (Graceful Explosion Machine) that may be good but iffy to folks who have their wallets set for other top-brand names. I've tried neither of those two, for instance.

    I would dare to add Shovel Knight Treasure Trove, if you hadn't bought it multiple times on other platforms first.

    I second Shovel Knight, and also suggest Mr. Shifty (comes out tomorrow). I'm working on a review for it tonight! ^_^

    Maybe wait a year before even trying to compile an essentials list? The entire switch library probably doesn't equal the 3ds essentials list.

    I really want to play that game, and I have been looking intensely at the price tag on the eShop.
    It seems, no matter what, I and the price tag are having problems communicating.
    As much as I eye it to go down to 12€, it still is at 24€... So sad...

    You forgot Fast RMX and Shovel Knight Treasure Trove. Has-Been Heroes and Snipperclips are also really good, but they're not for everybody.

    Snipperclips is on my list I really enjoyed the demo but hate buying digital, hopefully it will make a cart as part of a bundle.
