What cozy/RPG to play on Switch?

RPG-wise i'd recommend sea of stars, buddy simulator 1984 (in the style of a text based computer game) and omori (psychological horror themes)

they're all single player journeys with really awesome story-telling and soundtracks! i played sea of stars and omori on my switch lite and didn't have any issues with gameplay.
 
I don’t know if it’s been mentioned yet but I enjoyed Ooblets on Switch a lot! If you just focus on completing the story it is sadly rather short, but I personally spent a lot of time developing my farm area, unlocking upgrades, collecting clothes/stuff for my house, searching for specific Ooblets, etc. Very cute and addicting imo but probably not for everyone.
 
I would also DEFINITELY recommend Ooblets!

It's very relaxing and enjoyable for me. It's like Stardew Valley meets Animal Crossing meets Pokémon. I struggled to get back into animal crossing for a while, but I got Ooblets and it is honestly my perfect game. It's really chilled out and I really enjoy it. If you like the games I've mentioned, you'll really like Ooblets.
 
I also recommend Ooblets! I find it very fun c:
I also love Cozy Grove. It is literally in the name; COZY Grove xD I've spent a ton of time playing both. They're very fun!

I enjoy Cassette Beasts, but I'm not sure if that's available on the Switch or not. Still very fun though! ^_^
 
Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town is a decent remake of the GBA game. The graphics aren’t great, but it runs well, is relaxing, and is a lot of fun.
 
While it’s not exactly a simulation game, Endless Ocean Luminous is relaxing to play. You can go on solo dives, scan and identify sea creatures, all while searching for treasure.
 
My sister gifted me an indie game called Beacon Pines. I don't know if it's the ideal version of comfort, but it has a beautiful and stellar Autumn atmosphere. It's also heavily story driven and there's lots of interesting lore to pick up. It's a choice driven game, but mixes the formula because you go back and pick the different choices as a requirement to get the correct narrative of the story.

I was sadly dissapointed with this version :( I loved the wii versions, but did enjoy 5 hours worth of diving before I gave in

Lots of people suggesting Ooblets! I did try it when it came out but it came out the same time as dreamlight valley, and that ended up winning me over for a while... Maybe I'll give it another shot! Thanks!

I've played all the farming sims there are on switch at this point, and I think my favourite, (bar stardew) is maybe Story of Seasons Wonderful Life. I think nostalgia for the gamecube version is what keeps me hooked. That and it's the only one that runs well 😓
 
Darkest Dungeon is the least chill RPG you could probably play, but you either immediately love it or hate it.

I agree! I've been playing this on xbox and it's a lot of fun :)
 
Disney Dreamlight Valley is pretty relaxing. The characters you befriend have interesting personalities slightly different than their usual portrayals and can have interesting conversations with them.

what console are you playing on? I had a switch save on the go, but fell off when they stopped the free to play model but added paid DLC’s.
Remember in running a bit chuggy

I play the Switch version. Don’t play it very often but the game seems to run fine if you play in dock mode on the tv.
