Nintendo announces 1-2-Switch, a game 'everyone can play together,' for Nintendo Switch
1-2-Switch takes a Wii Sports-like approach to letting you experiment with the many functions of the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con peripheral.
At tonight's Nintendo Switch presentation, Nintendo unveiled 1-2-Switch, a game for multiple players that can be played without a screen. To play, each player uses a Joy-Con peripheral and watches each other, rather than a display, to "wait to see them do something unexpected."
It seems like 1-2 Switch might be the "Wii Sports" of the Nintendo Switch. Each mini-game uses the Joy-Con in a unique and different way. One game might use the motion controls, one might use the HD rumble, and another may use the IR Motion Camera. There will be wild-west duels, a copy-cat dance-off mode, table tennis, cow-milking competitions, and more.
1-2 Switch might be the first hit party game for Nintendo's new system. It will be a Nintendo Switch launch title when the system releases on 3/3/17.

I give credit for Nintendo continuing to try to push what gaming is, and can be. Once again, they came up with something new. But, this should have been a pack-in like they did with the Wii to help show off the controller. Making it a separate game will really lower the appeal. Granted it's like the only other title besides Zelda that's available at launch. I don't see anyone needing to preorder this.
