EDGE - - JOY DIVISION -

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.
