Nintendo Switch Family Showdown Coming to Disney

Nintendo and Disney are two of the biggest corporations on the planet, so it only makes sense that when they collide they produce something like a television show.

Feeding on the popularity of live competitive gaming, the House of Mouse has launched Nintendo Switch Family Showdown, a new United States contest where select families battle head-to-head in a series of Nintendo game challenges broadcast across Disney's linear and digital platforms. The first Nintendo Switch Mods are in, giving the player the opportunity to retexture and replace in-game models with the use of a plugin program.

It's the latest example of Nintendo's regained foothold as the leader in video games.

The competition will be aired on Disney XD and the Disney Channel starting on August 27; it'll also be accessible through the DisneyNOW app on the same day.

As the name implies, it's a competition between four families using the Nintendo Switch game console.

"Mario Tennis Aces" is one of three games that will appear on "Nintendo Switch Family Showdown".

Some of the games available to try out include Mario Tennis Aces, Super Mario Odyssey, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and the Labo Toy-Con Variety Kit.

The Nintendo Switch will be taking over the Holidays 2018 once again.

In a recent investor Q&A, outgoing Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima said, "The benchmark is not whether Nintendo Switch sales can surpass total Wii sales, but rather how we adapt and respond to changes in the market and strive to continue selling Nintendo Switch as long as possible".
