One Joy-Con Nintendo Switch Multiplayer Games on GameCube

The Switch console comes with one pair of Joy Cons. These are attached to the Switch in portable mode, and detached when playing on a TV. Some games support multiplayer modes with each player only needing one Joy-Con half to play. This offers a much more affordable way to accommodate more players.

This list includes 7 games from the last 31 years, with 489 likes. They come from a range of different genres and play-styles and are all good games if you want to play together with one Joy-Con.
