Happy JULY! I want to share a few of our favorite new Nintendo games for kids this month. My kids have played all of these games and I am giving them my stamp of approval. Read on for more info about our current most-played Nintendo games for kids.
Available July 21st, Splatoon 2 is the much-anticipated follow-up to Splatoon. Available for Switch and Wii U, Splatoon 2 takes players into a colorful paintball world where you can choose your game type and character. Playable as single-player or two-player, you can take it online to battle other “inklings” and even join in the online Splatfests (they are always taking place).
Kids will love the bright colors and fun missions, and there’s something super satisfying about all those paintballs splatting everywhere!
This game lives up the hype.

Oh, you guys…this game is magical. Available for Switch and Wii U, Breath of the Wild is technically a single-player game…but I bet your whole family will end up on the couch watching and helping whoever is playing!
Full of side missions, puzzles, and mysteries to unlock, Breath of the Wild is more than your typical “find Zelda in the castle” game. The level of details, in the graphics and the storytelling, are truly amazing.
Your whole family will be captivated by Breath of the Wild.

Arms is the perfect game for some dueling amongst friends. A boxing game for Nintendo Switch, up to four players can join in on the fun. The purpose of this game is to knock your opponent out using your ginormous arms. Players can choose from a wide variety of creative characters (like a mummy and a ninja).
While this game is all about boxing and KOing your opponent, there’s no blood involved, keeping this clever game family-friendly.
This is the game your kids will want to play when their friends come over.
My personal favorite (because it’s so darn cute!), Ever Oasis for 3DS is a dream come true for kids who like to build their own worlds. Kids go on a role-playing adventure as they build their own oasis, defeat chaos monsters (I can relate!), and expand their world.
You can check out Jack’s one-minute review and sneak peek of the game below:
This game is fun for everyone, super cute, and a favorite with my six-year-old.
