Nintendo has debuted a new Everybody 1-2 Switch! trailer, showing off some of the minigames you can expect to enjoy if you pick up this party game. Minigames on display include a relay race, a hide-and-seek-style Joy-Con-finding game, and a samurai sword fight, among others.

Everybody 1-2 Switch! was unceremoniously revealed by Nintendo earlier this month, and the game subsequently received a brand new trailer on the same day as a major Nintendo Direct presentation was scheduled to air, which doesn't imply a massive amount of confidence in it on Nintendo's part. Nevertheless, a new trailer is here to get you hyped for the many minigames on offer.

The aptly-named "Introducing the Games" trailer begins with games that can only be played via Joy-Cons, including blowing up balloons, knocking opponents off a platform in Hip Bump, and participating in a relay race, as well as waiting to strike your opponent in a samurai sword fight.

Everybody 1-2 Switch! will also support up to 100 players in the same room (yes, really) via the use of smartphones, and some of the games you can enjoy this way include Bingo, an augmented reality game in which you must snap AR objects of the appropriate color, and an auction bidding minigame.

Lastly, the trailer covers games you can play either with Joy-Cons or with your phone. These games include posing like a statue, a trivia quiz game, and the chance to pretend to be a ninja by using your Joy-Con to throw and deflect shuriken. Make sure to check out the full trailer if you want to see the range of minigames that buying Everybody 1-2 Switch! will get you.

Everybody 1-2 Switch! is due to arrive exclusively on Nintendo Switch (naturally) on June 30th. Stay tuned for more news on this and on all things Nintendo.
