The Nintendo Switch is home to numerous party games such as WarioWare: Get It Together! and Mario Party Superstars. Soon, Break First Games and Just For Games will throw their hats into the ring as well. Ultra Mega Xtra Party Challenge is a party game featuring 100 minigames, a story mode, and both local co-op and competitive gameplay.
One look at the trailer for Ultra Mega Xtra Party Challenge will reveal a very fast-paced and silly arsenal of minigames, not unlike those found in the WarioWare series. The art style makes ample use of Terry Gilliam-style photos as well as traditional pixel art and other styles. It really does look like an energetic and good time.
How does 4-player local co-op work? Co-op will be its own separate mode in which the AI tries to defeat the active player by adding hazards to the each minigame. The inactive players will have to shake their Joy-Cons, mash buttons, and more to save the active player from the computer's hazards. Each player wields one Joy-Con in co-op mode. As for the versus mode, it will work in the opposite manner as co-op. The inactive players will actually create the hazards that threaten the active player!
