Here is your list of the best cozy couch co-op games on Switch you can play with your player 2 tonight!
Can you think of a better way to spend an evening with a loved one, or “really close” friend, than to snuggle up on a squishy loveseat and get intimate with a cozy game?
The Nintendo Switch has some of the best co-op games on its platform, but I’ve compiled the coziest and cutest games I’ve had the pleasure of playing.
Many of the games on this list were hand-picked by my fiance, the coziest gamer I know! He will spend hours diving into the depths of the eShop to find a perfect game for us to play together. He’s a romantic like that.
Who needs flowers and chocolates when you have a partner who wants to play video games with you?
Let’s take a look at the best couch co-op games on Switch, then you can choose the take-away (I’ll have Nando’s thanks!) while your new game downloads.
