Nintendo Randomly Drops Tweet Announcing 'Everybody 1-2-Switch!'

While Nintendo's marketing campaign for Everybody 1-2-Switch barely exists, the whispers from behind the scenes paint a stark contrast to the public spectacle. This title, unfortunately, has become notorious for its prolonged stay in development purgatory, a tumultuous process that is typically symptomatic of major issues in a game's design, execution, or both. Such a troubled past virtually guarantees that the game will fail to deliver the seamless, enjoyable experience that Nintendo typically aims for. While the $30 price point may initially appear modest, many critics argue that this is still $30 too much for a game that, based on its rocky development, should have perhaps been offered as a complimentary download or, even more drastically, scrapped entirely. The feeling among some critics and fans is that Nintendo is charging consumers for a product that isn't up to their standard quality, and this discontent threatens to make Everybody 1-2-Switch not only a letdown, but an outright commercial flop.

In a surprise move that has made the internet point and laugh, Nintendo has dropped the unexpected announcement of a sequel to their Switch launch party game, 1-2 Switch. Aptly named 'Everybody 1-2-Switch!', this new title supposedly brings gaming parties to life with even more fun and laughter.

A horse, of course.

The official announcement was made via Nintendo's social media platforms, with the tagline "Wanna party? Break out the Nintendo Switch™ system and laugh it up at your next game night!" An intriguing hint to what the sequel brings to the gaming scene, the company is clearly attempting to invite everyone to experience the "joys" of shared play.

'Everybody 1-2-Switch!' is the next evolution of the original game, building upon its premise and expanding it to further encapsulate the spirit of fun and camaraderie that the Nintendo Switch is known for. According to Nintendo, the game is designed to be a perfect centerpiece for any get-together, ensuring laughter, engagement, and an unpredictable mix of mini-games.

In this sequel, Nintendo broadens the scope of gameplay options by including the use of both Joy-Con controllers and smart devices, thereby allowing more people to participate in the fun. This feature opens up a realm of possibilities for team-based games, whether it be popping virtual balloons or facing off against quirky aliens. The beauty of 'Everybody 1-2-Switch!' is that it's so easy to set up, making it a top choice for any social gathering.

The surprise sequel boasts a variety of games and modes that promise to keep everyone on their toes. Teams can challenge each other to see who can win a certain number of games first, introducing a layer of friendly competition to keep the night alive and buzzing.

What's more, many of these games come with several variations that mix up the rules or present an extra challenge, hoping that the gameplay never becomes monotonous. According to Nintendo's marketing, it's clear that 'Everybody 1-2-Switch!' has been designed with replayability in mind, offering fresh and exciting experiences every time it's brought out for a party.

With 'Everybody 1-2-Switch!', Nintendo has addressed one of the primary concerns of the original game: its pricing. The sequel has been priced at $29.99 USD, making it a more affordable option for the fans. This is a significant step down from the predecessor's original price point, and a welcome change that proves Nintendo knows this game isn't going to sell well out of the gate.

The surprise of 'Everybody 1-2-Switch!' may seem random, but if you read about the development hell this one went through, it may change your mind. Is this a title you're looking forward to? After reading about the development hell and focus group feedback, it's certainly not for me. I'm gonna pass on this offering unless the reviews blow me away.
