Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain is just weeks away from launching on Switch, and Nintendo's busy convincing us to pick it up with a brand new commercial starring Neil Patrick Harris.

The How I Met Your Mother actor, who's also starring in a Nintendo-themed holiday film this year called 8-Bit Christmas, is seen enjoying a game or two with his family. As we imagine plenty of parents will relate to, he's forced to sneak in some practice to take on his kids – how are kids so good at these games, anyway?

The new ad follows a lengthier overview trailer shared by Nintendo earlier this week, and the game was also featured in a recent commercial starring Christina Aguilera.

Big Brain Academy: Brain vs. Brain releases on Switch on 3rd December. Are you thinking of picking it up?
