One of the latest commercials for 1-2-Switch shows a number of enthusiastic players who appear to be really getting into the Sword Fight, Milk and Telephone minigames. It also highlights how Nintendo wants you to play the party game anywhere and in front of anyone, regardless of how awkward it may seem. 1-2-Switch is a launch title for Nintendo Switch, which is set to release globally on March 3.

  1. This game is SO epic.
    Why get Zelda when I can start a grand adventure in 1-2-Switch!
    I can just play the Sword Fight minigame, and get my fix!
    Forget Lon Lon Ranch, I’ll just play… Milk!

    In all seriousness though, this could be fun to screw around with, when company is over.
    Other than that… I don’t find much value in this game haha.
    Maybe I’m wrong, but $50 still seems like too much for a game like this.
    If this was a cheap download title, I’d probably buy it for use with friends.

    • Exactly. I have watched all the 1-2 Switch videos. I try but fail to see any appeal in it. I would honestly be embarrassed to bring this game out during a party. I would also be worried that my joy cons would get damaged. It’s like when you got a shitty toy for Christmas, you play with it for a few minutes and then just leave it on the floor and do something else without a care as to what happens to it, ya know what I mean? I don’t want folks abandoning my joy cons on the ground or floor or whatever just cause after 2mins they are bored as hell.

      This game has the potential to bring back wii shovelware memories. People are going to spend $50 on this game and play it once. It is such a terrible idea to charge for this game.

  2. My hope is that this off-TV experience gives them a secret entrance of sorts into the growing field of Tabletop Gaming. They could start with something accessible like this and then go on to produce more involved games. Imagine that kind of approach applied to Mario Party: An actual external board for an in-room experience, but enhanced by Joycon interaction and minigames on the Tablet/TV.

    Too, Nintendo is looking to expand outlets for their IPs, so this would be a perfect match for their current strategy.

    • Not a bad idea at all. I can imagine a scenario where you are playing a hybrid board/video RPG with a TV and multiple switches with the kind of dice that were never made for mario party. I think Nintendo develops ideas and then floats some games out to see how people react to them and whether there is a market and then the next go round is further development and a better game.

      Still, this game should have been bundled with the switch for free. A shame it wasn’t

  3. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4! Hopefully it will also await us at Nintendo Switch if Nintendo doesn't FUCK things up again!}

    I pity any idiots paying 50 bucks for this. Yep. I said it. You are a fucking idiot if you buy this for 50 bucks. If every one of you buying this just ignores it, I guarantee Nintendo will drop the price down to 10 bucks or give it away for free at some point. Just be patient.
