Release Date Announced
Updated 4/9/17

Nintendo has updated the date of release for the game, and it’s coming this week on April 13, 2017! We’ve played this game on the PlayStation 4 and it’s a fun time with a bunch of friends. Given the portable nature of the Switch, we can imagine that it would be a great game to setup in Tabletop mode at a friend’s place and have some fun.

The game will be available on the eShop as a digital purchase for $24.99. It includes five games and the best part is the players use their own cellphones, tablets, or computers – no need for extra controllers!

The threequel to the party game phenomenon features FIVE new sense-shattering games!

  1. The say-anything sequel Quiplash 2 (3-8 players). Play all new questions or make your own!
  2. The deadly quiz show Trivia Murder Party (1-8 players). Match wits with a trivia-obsessed killer.
  3. The surprising survey game Guesspionage (2-8 players). Guess the results to silly survey questions.
  4. The t-shirt slugfest Tee K.O. (3-8 players). Battle your custom t-shirts to the death!
  5. The sneaky trickster game Fakin’ It (3-6 players). One of your friends has something to hide.

Play using your phones, tablets, or computers. No extra controllers needed!

All games support up to 10,000 audience members playing along!

Plus tons of NEW features just for streamers! It’s a digital box full of actual fun!


Original Preview

I’ve always said that the Jackbox games would be a perfect fit for Nintendo systems. That demographic of gamers is used to getting together for game nights and playing couch co-op / competitive games. I was really hoping Jackbox Games would support the Switch, but had my doubts since they really didn’t publish anything on Nintendo systems in the past. That’s why I’m happy to see they’ve hopped on the bandwagon and are now bringing The Jackbox Party Pack 3 to the Nintendo Switch.



We don’t know any more details yet, but are already imagining the possibilities of throwing the Switch in a bag and playing some Jackbox anywhere we like. The game currently retails digitally for $24.99 on various platforms. It includes five different games:


Quiplash 2 (3-8 players)

The say-anything sequel. Play all new questions or make your own!

Trivia Murder Party (1-8 players)

A deadly quiz show where you match wits with a trivia-obsessed killer.

Guesspionage (2-8 players)

The brain-battering data-mining guessing game.

Tee K.O. (3-8 players)

The t-shirt slugfest where you battle your custom t-shirts to the death!

Fakin’ It (3-6 players)

One of your friends has something to hide in this sneaky game for tricksters.



We will update with pricing and release date as soon as we learn more.
