Nintendo Has Great NEW Nintendo Switch Products for Kids and Families

The holidays are almost here, and whether you are traveling or staying home, Nintendo has options for every gamer in the family. Recently, David Young, a Nintendo veteran, lifelong gamer, and Assistant Manager of PR at Nintendo of America, teamed with YourUpdateTV to discuss great options for the holiday season.

A video accompanying this announcement is available at:

With the Nintendo Switch and new Nintendo Switch Lite systems, family members can choose a system that best fits their needs and personal play styles, with a broad range of games you can play together. The Nintendo Switch system can be played docked at home or played on the go, while Nintendo Switch Lite is a dedicated gaming handheld system perfect for players who are regularly on the go or love playing in Handheld mode. Here are some of this year’s hottest offerings:

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield:
A new generation of Pokémon is coming to the Nintendo Switch™ system. Begin your adventure as a Pokémon Trainer by choosing one of three new partner Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where you’ll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokémon known as Dynamax Pokémon.

Ring Fit Adventure:
The Ring Fit Adventure game is a new kind of experience for both gamers and non-gamers alike that will help keep families active. It’s time to embark on a wondrous adventure set in an expansive world filled with daring challenges, powerful enemies and a bodybuilding dragon with an ego to match his oversized muscles. But the twist in this adventure is that you move through the game world and defeat enemies with real-world exercises using the two included accessories that respond to real-life movement. The two new accessories – Ring-Con and Leg Strap – work with the Joy-Con controllers and allow the game to turn your movements and exercise in the real world, like jogging in place, squats and overhead shoulder presses, into actions in the game.

Luigi’s Mansion 3:
When Luigi arrives at the towering Last Resort hotel, Mario and friends wind up missing. It’s up to our unlikely hero to conquer his fears and save the day. Try out the new Poltergust G-00 to slam, vacuum and blow away any ghosts that dare get in the way. Join forces with Gooigi to overcome the puzzling contraptions and mischievous boss on each themed floor. Whether you play with friends* in madcap mini-games in the ScareScraper and ScreamPark, or simply wander the haunted hotel alone, you’ll get sucked in by the atmospheric music and ghoulish décor of every corner you explore.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening:
As Link, you awaken in a strange land away from Hyrule, where animals talk and monsters roam. To uncover the truth behind your whereabouts and rouse the legendary Wind Fish, players must explore dungeons riddled with tricks, traps, and enemies, and discover the game’s many secrets. Along the way, you’ll meet a hilarious assortment of charming characters to which you’ll never want to say goodbye.

Kids and parents can also race together in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, battle one another in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or build Super Mario courses together in Super Mario Maker 2.
