Disney on Nintendo Switch: A 2023 Review

October 16th, 2023, marked a century since Disney debuted in the entertainment industry. Over the years, hundreds of adaptations from animated Disney classics have made their way to the gaming world, captivating audiences young and old. As expected, the family-friendly Nintendo Switch console is not left out of this magical journey.

Nintendo Switch boasts a healthy collection of Disney classics, with the Gargoyles Remastered being the latest addition. However, the question lingers– what’s the best Disney game on Switch? This review offers a comprehensive ranking of each Disney game on Switch, rated by Nintendo Life readers.

Despite the list of Disney games on Nintendo Switch growing by the day, there is a startling absence of some classic Disney games from past Nintendo consoles. Favorites such as DuckTales and Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers on NES are noticeably missing from the console. The absence of The Disney Afternoon Collection on the Switch platform is equally puzzling.

The review ranks 13 games from the Kingdom Hearts - HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMix - Cloud Version rated as the worst by users with a 5/10 rating to TRON: Identity, the most highly-rated game with a score of 8/10. Switch users have found it challenging to enjoy the cloud versions of the Kingdom Hearts games due to unreliable internet connections causing patchy gameplay.

The list also features Disney Tsum Tsum Festival, which despite its charm, presents as a lackluster Wii title. The game Gargoyles Remastered, featuring beautifully designed moody 16-bit visuals, has drawn some following but is also criticized for its unfair design and short length. Then we have Disney Magical World 2: Enchanted Edition, a heartwarming remastered 3DS game that provides a great Disney-flavored addition to an already thriving genre.

Highlighted for a great setlist of music to back up gameplay, Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is a rhythm game perceived as a love letter to long-term fans of the franchise. Lastly, there's TRON: Identity, which, while not overly impressive with puzzles, does justice in its storytelling.

Among the forthcoming Disney game releases for the Switch platform in 2023 is Disney Speedstorm scheduled for April and Disney Illusion Island for July. Also, Disney Dreamlight Valley, often compared to Animal Crossing because of its gameplay, launched in paid Early Access in 2022.

In summary, the 2023 releases have proved fascinating to varying degrees. The Switch platform offers chances for gamers to reminisce about old times, explore new storylines, and experience the undeniable magic of Disney.
