Every Cloud Version game on Switch
Nintendo Switch has a slow and steady number of ‘Cloud Version’ games available — titles that don’t run natively on Nintendo’s console, but are streamed to the Switch over the internet while they run on servers elsewhere in the world. Below is a full list of every ‘Cloud Version’ Nintendo Switch game currently available.
Playing games via the cloud comes with pros and cons, and many dedicated gamers believe the negatives outweigh the positives. Some people find the inherent latency and requirement for a very strong internet connection in order to maintain a smooth experience interminable, not to mention the concern that players have no control over when the service will be turned off and access to the game revoked.
However, cloud gaming can be a convenient way to play titles that otherwise might not have been possible on Switch’s mobile hardware, and for studios without the budget to develop a Switch-specific version, the decision may come down to Cloud Version or nothing.
Regardless of your thoughts cloud gaming, it’s popularity is growing as the technology improves and more and more cloud versions are appearing on Switch and elsewhere. We’ve collected together every cloud game on Switch in the list below.
Here’s the list of all current and upcoming cloud games available on Nintendo Switch. We’ll update this guide with more titles as they’re announced and released.

About Gavin Lane
Gavin Lane
Gavin loves a bit of couch co-op, especially when he gets to delegate roles, bark instructions and give much-appreciated performance feedback at the end. He lives in Spain (the plain-y bit where the rain mainly falls) and his love for Banjo-Kazooie borders on the unhealthy.

A complete list of games I will never ever buy on switch.
Most of them are just due to lazy developers. I mean doom and Witcher run on the switch.

@TKundNobody Yeah, it’s right.

How about listing what’s not available in Australia. Most of them…and the ones that are don’t run that fabulous.

@TKundNobody
Witcher and doom were heavily downgraded visually and required an absolute ton of work. I don’t think it’s lazy for developers not see see the cost benefit in doing all that work for a generally inferior way to play the game that might not even sell very well.
That being said, SE could have ported the early KH games natively at the least and they would have sold gangbusters

@TKundNobody well control is understandable. It can barely manage 30 fps on Xbox one and PS4 alone
