Face to face gaming is now a thing.
Though we saw plenty of awesome triple A titles from the Nintendo Switch presentation, there’s no denying the potential party aspects of the console. Case in point, Nintendo started off the presentation with 1-2 Switch, which allows players to take control of one Joy-Con each and face each other over a series of mini-games.
We got a look at Ping Pong and a version “Draw” from old Western films but there are plenty of others to be had. One of the more interesting aspects of 1-2 Switch is the face-to-face aspect which emphasizes watching your opponent rather than watching the screen. It looks fairly interesting though we’re not sure it will function as a great ice breaker at parties like Nintendo envisions.
1-2 Switch will release on March 3rd alongside the Nintendo Switch. Would it have made more sense to bundle it with the console? Perhaps but let us know what you think in the comments below.
