1-2-Switch's Weirdest Minigame Yet Revealed

What is happening?!


1-2-Switch, the compilation title for Nintendo Switch, has had more of its minigames revealed. The game's official Japanese website names a number of the activities, and apparently confirms the total number of minigames available in 1-2-Switch as 28.

Some of the titles include Sword Fight, Soda (which was teased in a recent Nintendo Switch ad), Wizard, Beach Flag, and possibly the weirdest of the bunch: Baby.

In Baby, you must cradle a screaming child to sleep. Except that child is a Nintendo Switch console. 2017 is weird.

The site has named 18 minigames so far, but appears to say there are 28 included in 1-2-Switch overall. That would leave 10 still to be revealed before the game's launch next month.

We recently got to try out 1-2-Switch--check out what we thought here.

Nintendo Switch launches on March 3, priced at US $300/£280/AU $470. The console's touchscreen was recently shown off for the first time, using Skylanders Imaginators. The toys-to-life game is one of 10 confirmed Switch launch titles. The other nine are: 1-2-Switch, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, Just Dance 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I Am Setsuna, Human Resource Machine, Little Inferno, World of Goo, and Super Bomberman R. For all the games confirmed to be coming to Switch--but not necessarily at launch--take a look at our roundup.

The Switch launch lineup could continue to grow between now and release in March, but it's unlikely there will be as many launch titles as there were for Wii U, which had 23. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently spoke out to stress that launch is "not the be-all and the end-all."
