Twitch Stream of Pokémon Sword

People keep doing amazing things with technology. Last week, it was a chap playing Among Us on the Wii (sort of); this week it's Twitch Plays Pokémon Sword.

Reddit user DmitrievStan posted a video of his complicated setup that allows him to stream his Nintendo Switch to Twitch, and lets viewers control the game remotely for 60 seconds at a time. The game is streaming right now on the Surrogate Twitch channel as the first of their planned "We Play" series.

It does sound slightly less chaotic than the original TwitchPlaysPokémon, but luckily, the general tone hasn't changed - at the time of writing, the Pokémon team includes "Bunny", a Raboot, a Vulpix named "fire", and a Gossifleur named... "asshola".

If you want to give the game a go (and hopefully provide some better names) then you can just drop into the Twitch chat and queue up for your 60 seconds in the spotlight. The Twitch page notes that the top ten players at the end of the game will win a prize, presumably meaning the ten players with the most time logged.
