Entertainment juggernauts Nintendo and Disney are joining forces to create a TV show based around the Switch and its games.

Dubbed "Nintendo Switch Family Showdown Contest", the show will make its debut this summer on the Disney Channel and Disney XD.

Each show will feature four families competing against each other on a wide range of Switch games, including Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis Aces and Just Dance 2018.

It all sounds rather fun, and is, of course, a savvy piece of marketing by Nintendo itself; non-Switch owners might end up tuning in and then badgering their parents for a console.
