10 wacky games on Nintendo Switch for couples planning a cosy stay-in

by Jermina

Attention, all couples!

Date night doesn’t always have to be buying your significant other a gift and going out for a special dinner (not forgetting a cup of bubble tea to end the day course). 

Sometimes, however, simplicity is the best. It can be nice to take time out and chill with your partner. 

If you’re thinking of switching things up this year, we’ve compiled a list of games for couples that you can play on the Nintendo Switch (and you don’t even have to step out of the house!).

1. Fall Guys

Fall Guys is a free multiplayer game which features wacky adorable bean-shaped characters. The aim of the game is simple — to be the last man standing in every obstacle course.

Pocket Pool: Complete Edition may look simple at first but the intricate grooves and details of each table make the game more challenging yet exciting.

They have up to 75 unique, creative levels matched with colourful graphics. Some levels include additional challenges such as spinning poles and extra objects to spice up the game.

3. Untitled Goose Game

Untitled Goose Game lets you and your partner role-play as two silly geese, waddling around and wreaking havoc amongst the town (it’s literally the two of you against the world)

This is one of my favourite games from the Nintendo Switch as couples get to venture into the high street shops in town filled with the townspeople or the village green where you’ll find the farmer’s carefully tended crops.

Unleash both of your inner chaos as you’ll be tasked with mini pranks like stealing the groundskeeper’s keys or pulling the plants out.

And if that’s not enough, each goose has a dedicated honk button to make your presence (or should I say annoyance) known. 

Get it here.
🎮 Action, puzzle 
⏳ 3 hours 
💰 S$13.50, $9.99 USD

4. Ibb & Obb

Put your relationship to the test in Ibb & Obb as gravity divides the both of you by a horizontal line. You’ll either have gravity in your favour or find yourself on the other side where everything is inverted and confusing.

Go through 15 levels filled with double gravity puzzles and explore the hidden worlds. That said, this game will be a true test of your teamwork and strengthen your connection. 

Get it here.
🎮 Action, puzzle 
⏳ 6 hours 
💰 S$20.20, $14.99 USD

5. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Spice things up with Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes — filled with a tense, fast-paced and nerve-wrecking atmosphere. It may be slightly challenging as the game requires close communication where each player will have a specific role.

One of you’ll be in charge of defusing the ticking time bomb whilst the other deciphers and gives instructions from the Bomb Defusal Manual. Work fast as time is of the essence! 

It’s definitely different compared to the other couple games on the Nintendo Switch but at least you’ll come out with better communication skills (or so we hope). 

Get it here.
🎮 Puzzle, party, board game 
⏳ 8–10 hours 
💰 S$20.20, $14.99 USD
