Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Okay, so almost everyone has played Animal Crossing: New Horizons so far - if you haven’t, what the hell are you waiting for? This lovely little sim took the world by storm during the harsh blockages of 2020 and it really felt like a beacon in the dark - a much-loved series that came back to take us all out of our troubles when we needed it most.
You find yourself landing on a small island, which soon becomes your own resort. Decorate, landscape, feed, fish and more, while shaping this rocky mass into a perfect escape. Meet a huge list of adorable animals, invite your favorites to move to your island and help them build their ideal home (a feature that is further developed in the Happy Homes DLC). It’s cute. It’s relaxing. And there are more animals going this way than you can count - believe us, we have a complete guide for ACNH villagers that covers them all!
Cat Cafe Manager
I barely managed to take it off since I put my paws on it and it quickly became my relaxation tool after a busy day. Cat Cafe Manager is a sincerely adorable business simulator in which you build your grandmother’s old cafe from the rubble, make meaningful connections with your regulars, fight an evil corporation that wants to take over the city, and help a magical cat rebuild an ancient altar. .

Super Animal Royale
Have you ever played PUBG or Fortnite and thought that “he needs more cute creatures”? Well, Super Animal Royale is the game for you. This free-to-play title does exactly what it says on the box - it’s a Battle Royale with super animals. Monetizing is not too aggressive, with only cosmetics available for purchase, the art is simple but super cute and is a great way to kill a few hours.
Of course, his performance is not always top notch, and with the relatively long battles of 64 players, the map may start to look a little sterile towards the end of the match. However, it’s fun, free, and cute, and there’s something inherently funny about seeing a cute kitten flying over an umbrella while holding a handgun.
Just thinking about this game is enough to bring a radiant smile to my lips. The premise is simple, though very strange - you are this long, stretched, two-headed, bottomless dog. Go explore! With an adorable art style, cute characters and lots of fun puzzles to work with, it’s a wonderful, easy, silly experience. It’s designed for two-player cooperation on the couch, and it’s definitely more enjoyable when shared with a friend, but you can play solo if you’re more of a lone wolf.

Like Phogs, KeyWe is definitely designed for cooperation, although you can play solo. It’s a wonderful little unique title, which follows two Kiwis, Debra and Jeff, while trying to run a crowded post office. Pick up the packages, pull your ass in the buttons, still delicious snacks with other animal friends, all while trying to keep the well-oiled machine that is the post office in operation. You can even dress Jeff and Debra in small hats. What a delight.

Little Friends: Dogs and Cats and My Universe: The Pet Clinic
Okay, so I’ve put these two together, because they’re your standard animal-themed sim games and they fit into the same niche. If you are looking for games where you care about animals instead of one, then these two are for you.
My Universe: Cats and Dogs makes you take on the role of a vet, taking care of bad pets. Little Friends: Dogs and cats focus more on owning, caring for, training, and caring for your obscure friends. Both can be a bit repetitive and are pretty simple titles, Little Friends: Dogs and Cats treading lines very similar to the Nintendogs on the DS, without really bringing anything new to the table. But they both do well in that relaxing, simulating role and offer a lot of cool fun on the subject of animals.
Okami is a classic for a reason. This beautiful, illustrated story is a magical, fantastic adventure, full of gorgeous art, amazing characters, exciting story rhythms and wonderful game mechanics. It is an absolute masterpiece, and the relaunch of HD on Switch brings it perfectly to a new generation. With a low price and a truly wonderful experience to live, we beg you to go play it, you will not regret it.
Fun! Fun! Animal park
I felt compelled to include this title because of how weird and weird it is - the whole PT team chuckled at this weird piece of jewelry. From intensely emotional puppet presenters to dancing lemurs and kangaroo boxing, it’s all weird. Fun! Fun! Animal Park consists of 30 different mini-games on the subject of animals, which accept both solo mode and cooperation on the couch with another player. Also, use the Switch’s motion controls to give you a variety of fun experiences. Take it at a discount, take a friend with you and sit back and enjoy some crazy and fuzzy fun.

This stealth slapstick sandbox sees you making your way through the city, doing pranks, stealing hats and generally ruining everyone’s day. There’s even a two-player mode - double the goose-free fun. In addition, there is a dedicated horn button. Toot!
