Much like the Wii before it, the Nintendo Switch is shaping up to be an excellent party machine. Yeah, I know, serious hardcore gamers hate party games, but if there’s nothing wrong with them if they’re well made, and few folks make better virtual party games than the folks at Jackbox.
The Nintendo Switch already has The Jackbox Party Pack 3, and now it seems The Jackbox Party Pack 1 and 2 are also on the way!
Here’s what you get in the original Jackbox Party Pack:
The comedy trivia sensation You Don’t Know Jack (1-4 players) with hundreds of all-new questions.
The hilarious bluffing game Fibbage XL (2-8 players), with 50% more questions added to the original hit game Fibbage.
The bizarre drawing game Drawful (3-8 players), where you draw right there on your phone or tablet.
The racy-as-you-want-to-be fill-in-the-blank word game Word Spud (2-8 players).
The wacky-fact-filled Lie Swatter (1-100 players).
And here’s what you can expect from The Jackbox Party Pack 2:
Fibbage 2 (2-8 players)
The runaway hit bluffing game with over 500 brand-new questions, more than 2x the original! Plus new features, like the deFIBrillator!
Earwax (3-8 players)
The hear-larious sound-effects game that will leave you up to your ears in laughter! Cow moo? Huge explosion? Or tiny fart? Which to choose?
Bidiots (3-6 players)
The absurd art auction game where you draw right there on your phone or tablet. Outbid your opponents for weird art pieces – drawn by players themselves – and win this strangely competitive auction game! Don’t be a bidiot!
Quiplash XL (3-8 players)
The say-anything, gut-busting Quiplash XL (3-8 players), which includes everything in Quiplash, Quip Pack 1, AND over 100 brand-new prompts!
Bomb Corp. (1-4 players)
The bomb-defusing nailbiter of a party game! As interns at Bomb Corp., you must defuse random bombs in the office in order to keep your jobs. You’ll probably die, but it’ll be good work experience!
Seriously, the Jackbox games are pretty much essential for when family comes over. Otherwise you may have to, y’know, talk to them. Gross.
We don’t yet have a release date for The Jackbox Party Pack 1 and 2 on Nintendo Switch, but you can probably expect them fairly soon.
