Nintendo Switch Fans Rejoice - These Hugely Popular Party Games Are Headed Your Wayby

It has barely been on the shelves for six months, and yet the Nintendo Switch is already crunching the numbers when it comes to sales and critical reception. While some attention has been diverted to the firm’s forthcoming SNES Classic Mini – which will aim to capitalize on last year’s shock success in the NES Classic Mini – the console has continued to see a number of popular titles and well-praised games emerge over the past few months. With bizarre boxing title ARMS having been released recently and with the hugely anticipated Splatoon 2 on the horizon, gamers may be quick to overlook some of the smaller third party titles that are emerging on the console’s growing eShop.

Following the successful launch of JackBox Party Pack 3 on the system – a collection of interactive party games – it’s been revealed by JackBox Games that the first two instalments in the Party series will emerge for the Switch in due course. These games – which include the hugely popular and addictive Drawful and Fibbage – allow players to interact with their smartphones and tablets to draw, guess and throw off the competition – making for memorable and hilarious evenings in. The Party Packs have been a smash hit on other systems such as the PS3, PS4, XBox One and PC via Steam – but the news that these big party games will be making their way to Nintendo’s current console will likely be met with elation from owners looking to bolster their games library with a few more multiplayer titles.

While the Nintendo Switch library is slowly growing, it has taken some time for a stock of titles to emerge and really bolster the system. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Zelda: Breath of The Wild have been widely celebrated – and with two more Mario games due out later this year, it seems that the Japanese giant will be relying upon its most popular plumber to seal the year off. With a hugely anticipated return from Sonic the Hedgehog via retro-inspired 2D platformer Sonic Mania due later in the year, too, it seems that it is taking time for the Switch’s library to come of age – but talk of a Netflix-style games library system potentially on the horizon for next year, there seems to be plenty of reasons to want to be an ardent Nintendo fan right about now.
