The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (13.4GB) is the recent entry in the Zelda franchise, and the first to be fully-open world. The title appears to take the usual Zelda traditions and set it in a new, more realistic environment. The story opens with the hero Link waking up in stasis, only to find the world threatened by the return of the evil that is Ganon. He journeys around a stunning open world.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (7GB) is a port of the popular Nintendo Wii U entry to the Mario Kart franchise. The Switch port, however, will feature all the game’s roads and racers, along with some new faces and environments. It will be interesting to see how the Joy-Con controllers will play out with the title’s mechanics.
Disgaea 5 (5.92GB) is a port of the PlayStation 4 entry of the hit Disgaea franchise.

I Am Setsuna (1.40GB) is a gripping tale of a maiden called Setsuna and her protector. They have to travel a winter-filled land in order to save it against demons. While the game is “sad” in itself, the title offers a nostalgic take on roleplaying games.
Dragon Quest Heroes I – II (32GB) is a compilation of the Dragon Quest Heroes games for the Switch. According to IGN, this is the largest title in the list, considering the Switch only has a 32GB space capability.
