"Hay - I'll take the reins and be your host!" reads a quote on the back of the box. Slow clap.

The box leak reveals other details too.

The party game will be playable with up to eight players using Joy-Con, or up to 100 players using smartphones.

Screenshots of the minigames include dancing aliens, battling samurai, counting scoops of ice cream, and a simple quiz about the months of the year.

1-2-Switch was designed to show off the capabilities of the Joy-Con - its motion controls and HD rumble features. Eurogamer dubbed that a "A characteristically imaginative minigame suite that lays out the possibilities of Nintendo's new console, without feeling like a guidebook." Everybody 1-2-Switch arrives years later and its defining feature is... a host in a horse mask.
