1 2 Switch is a WarioWare-esque game where you face your opponent directly

TODO alt text

The Nintendo Switch is getting a strange launch title called 1 2 Switch - a party game that drops the screen for face-to-face gameplay interactions.

A strange demo showed two gunmen facing off against each other, drawing Switch JoyCons to do battle. Similar to bite-sized minigame collections like Wii Sports or Nintendoland, 1 2 Switch will act as a sort of icebreaker for large gatherings, but the gameplay itself won't require a screen. Instead, you'll focus on the actual player when you use your JoyCons,which have built-in motion controls and sensors, to act.

Other details were light, but it will launch simultaneously with the Nintendo Switch on March 3rd.
