Question: Nintendo Switch Console – does this need wi fi or internet to play something like 1-2 switch or any switch games or just for online games?
Wifi is needed for some Online play like Splatoon 2 and maybe others but most are standalone multiple or networked Switch gaming. Wifi is important if your doing eShop and updates. But most games beyond those required online presence play just fine on standalone.
I gave this to my ten year old grandson for his birthday and I really don’t know much about how it operates. I think you will need Wi-Fi but maybe read the directions posted or the reviews for an answer.
You only need wi-fi for online games! And even then some of the games have singleplayer modes that don’t require internet!
