The Nintendo Switch is home to some of the best zombie games available. Whether you’re looking for a game that will scare you senseless or one that will have you laughing out loud from excitement, the Switch has something for everyone.

In this article, we will take a look at 5 of the best zombie games available on the Nintendo Switch. So put on your favorite pair of apocalypse pants and get ready to fight off hordes of zombies!

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead is perhaps the most well-known zombie-related work of the last ten years. The film series has consistently established the genre in its festering hand, from the comics and the television show. The Telltale game series could have always been the little brother of the trio, but that doesn’t make them any worse. 

The Complete First Season is overflowing with brilliant voice acting, storytelling, as well as character development. It also runs flawlessly on the Switch. This is the absolute best of the first Telltale game, and what a ride it was, premised on the technically enhanced version that was released for PS4 and Xbox One.

Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Complete Edition

Who ever said zombies couldn’t be entertaining for children? We dare you not to enjoy yourself if you offer the zombies a whimsical weapon and have them go into battle against a squad of plants.  We weren’t immediately thinking of the online shooter expansion when playing the initial Plants vs. Zombies mobile phone game way back.  

Plants vs Zombies is a nice alternative for those who would like to view zombie games from the opposite side of the line because it has a ton of content and customizability. However, keep in mind that the game plays on the Switch just as you might expect it to.

Dying Light Platinum Edition

Among those Switch ports that defy expectations is Dying Light Platinum Edition. Despite the fact that it doesn’t play as smoothly as some of the top names in console gaming, it still works on the Switch and is fantastic. It is a genre entry like no other on the console because the world is totally overrun with zombies.

It is a feat of mastery to bring a large-scale game to a handheld device, regardless of whether you’re running from a hoard or utilizing every blunt object conceivable to maintain some aspect of stealth.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War

With Rebellion Switch ports, you always know what you’re receiving, and Zombie Army 4: Dead War is no different. A whole other port that seems like it should just not run on the Switch, but does so amazingly well, is this one. 

You’ll be fighting hordes of zombies in any way you see suitable, from any and all angles. This is not for the faint of heart because there is a ton of blood and guts. But if you wanted to reduce the genre to its most fundamental elements—killing zombies—you didn’t need to look any further.

Death Road To Canada

Another game that allows you to experience the zombie apocalypse instead of just shooting your way through it is this one. In Death Road To Canada, you must create a new life for yourself while trying to flee the zombie-infested nation. 

There will be human clans and supermarket dashes to bargain with, but the game truly shines when it comes to letting you customize the story. This game is for those who would like to view the apocalypse from all perspectives because there are countless character perk options and team-build configurations available.
