Nintendo and Disney have announced that the two will be teaming up together to create a Switch-focused competitive game show, titled Nintendo Switch Family Showdown.
The new show is intended to debut this summer both on Disney’s TV channels like Disney Channel and Disney XD, as well as the online DisneyNOW service. The competitions themselves will evoke Nick Arcade, asking families to race for collectibles in Super Mario Odyssey or compete for score in Just Dance.
A call has gone out to families to compete for the initial batch of episodes, soliciting videos from families who want to take part. It is unclear what participating competitors can win, but presumably it is something Nintendo-related. Or maybe money.
I am curious if they’ll end up having pre-release games on the show. It would definitely be cool to see more Smash Bros. Ultimate or see what’s new with Yoshi there.
