Developer/publisher Nintendo Origin Japan Release March 3
This launch-day compendium is designed to showcase the capabilities of the Joy-Con controllers, particularly HD Rumble. It certainly does that, even though it’s a slender package. In Milk, you drag the controller downwards and time button presses to drain milk through an udder, the one who fills the most cups being declared the winner. Safe Crack has you rotating a Joy-Con to find a series of bankvault sweet spots; Ball Count tasks you with guessing how many ball-bearings appear to be rattling around inside the controller; Samurai Training has one of you swinging a katana and the other trying to catch it before the blow hits home. This is perfect show-floor fodder, and only a selection of the full package. Yet it’s so effective a showcase of HD Rumble that it deserves to be bundled with its host hardware, rather than sold separately.
