Be in with a chance of winning over £1,000 worth of Nintendo goodies by showing us your #OnlyOnSwitch moments this winter!


When we asked to see your #OnlyOnSwitch moments earlier this year, we received a huge range of images showing the freedom to play anytime, anywhere, with anyone that Nintendo Switch offers.

From playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in tabletop mode atop Snowdon to using handheld mode for a spot of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild while lounging in the sun, you can check out some of our favourite entries down below, or see a wide selection by clicking here.

However now that the nights are firmly drawn in, and everyone the country over is wearing their warmest wares, we want to see the #OnlyOnSwitch moments you’re enjoying in this more chilled season.

Indulging in a spot of tabletop mode Super Mario Odyssey co-op before pudding arrives? Taking a handheld mode adventure in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® while on that long train journey home? Hosting an impromptu ARMS tournament for family and friends, loud and proud in TV mode? Popping to the café mid-shop to squad-up for a Splatoon 2 Salmon Run session? Whether playing one of the growing number of exclusive games available #OnlyOnSwitch, or enjoying a game in a way that’s possible #OnlyOnSwitch, we want to see what you’re up to and how you’re embracing your freedom to play over the holidays.
