Planet Entertainment and FarSight Studios have revealed that Party Arcade is headed to Nintendo Switch on 23rd October.
Described as being "perfect for gamers and party-goers of all ages", Party Arcade is the sequel to the Game Party series on Wii from the same developer, and is set to feature an arcade collection of classic games and party favourites such as air hockey, billiards, darts, cornhole, cup pong, ping pong, puck bowling and hoop shoot. It will also support up to four-player multiplayer, both local and online, giving players the chance to become the undisputed champion on global leaderboards, or just among friends.
The Joy-Con's motion controls can be used to full effect here, with a simple flick of the wrist helping you to throw darts, hit balls, and slap pucks. Or, if you prefer, you can always plonk the controllers back on the Switch and use the analog sticks for a traditional gaming setup. The game also features extra in-game challenges and unlockables in the form of equipment. There are over 60 pieces of equipment in total which can be used during your matches.
- Tournaments regular tournaments with prizes!
- Prize Shop 60 unique pieces of equipment
- Multiplayer 1-4 players local or online
- Challenges extra challenges for single player
- Leaderboards for each game, including challenges
As mentioned above, the game is scheduled for release on 23rd October and will launch for $29.99. If you or anyone you know is the Nintendo Karen type, we're sure you'll absolutely love this one.
