Nintendo Reportedly Working On A 1-2 Switch Sequel, But It’s Tough

An unannounced Switch 1-2 the follow-up is said to be in development at Nintendo, though the results of internal playtests haven’t been stellar.

According to a report by Fanbytethe sequel could be called Everyone’s 1-2 switch and includes mini-games like bingo, musical chairs, and a family version of Spin the Bottle where participants complement each other. Nintendo isn’t just making an iterative sequel, because Everyone’s 1-2 switch would have allowed more than 100 players to participate in the fun thanks to the integration of the smartphone. Jack Box Games is apparently a massive inspiration in this regard.

It seems like a simple idea, especially since Switch 1-2 has sold over 3.45 million copies. The problem is, Everyone’s 1-2 switch may never see the light of day.

Sources said Fanbyte this feedback was not what Nintendo wanted. Many testers, mostly families with children, thought the minigames were tedious. Bingo, for example, had a player mimic numbers and draw one before playing it on the TV screen. As you can imagine, a lot of people found this boring.

Nintendo reportedly had covers printed for tons of voids Everyone’s 1-2 switch case, and things could stay that way, with the project having no release date in sight. Who knows if these boxes will ever contain an actual game.

Given how many other Switch consoles are hereone would assume that Nintendo would release Everyone’s 1-2 switch right away. Such is the nature of video game development, I suppose.
