There ain’t no party like a golf party.
Yes, they already had all of the content ready and waiting to use at their disposal, but something’s got to be said for how quickly Jackbox Games have managed to put together four Party Packs’ worth of contributions to the Switch eShop.
Astro Bears Party is a competitive party game featuring cute, podgy bears in spacesuits who run around bumping into each other and catching fish. Oh… and one of them is called Neil. If that doesn’t immediately intrigue you then I don’t know what will! Published by Qubic Games (who have an incredible amount of Switch games on the way), Astro Bears Party is hoping to be your next go-to party game – and it may well have succeeded.
An eShop listing has revealed that QubicGames will be releasing Astro Bears Party on the Nintendo Switch later this week.
Jackbox Games have released Jackbox Party Pack 1 & 2 on Nintendo Switch, and have set up a tasty new discount for those looking to get ’em all.
Polish indie developer Bloober Team have revealed that they’re bringing their competitive arena party battler Brawl to the Nintendo Switch.
Angry Mob Games are bringing their party style fighting game to Switch sometime later in 2017.
The Nintendo Switch lends itself perfectly to games based around a very simple set of controls, short bursts of multiplayer action, and – ultimately – fun. We’ve seen games such as De Mambo and Overcooked: Special Edition hit the Switch’s eShop in recent times, and they’re two great examples of this mantra. Bringing Rocket Fist to the console seems to be an attempt at continuing this trend, so let’s see if it’s a success.
With Snipperclips a stellar first first-party entry into the Switch eShop catalogue, Flip Wars – released in mid-July – is the next offering. While it does employ the same pick-up-and-play ethic of the cutting-out puzzler, that’s where the similarities end between the two titles. Flip Wars places the focus on the battling, the head-to-head multiplayer which crowns the best as the winner and the rest as the also-rans.
The competitive action game from the mid-80s is getting a Switch version this Fall in Japan.
