Earlier today, Nintendo announced the clever puzzle / action game Snipperclips will debut with the Nintendo Switch on March 3. You can grab it off the eShop for $19.99 USD. The addition of Snipperclips to the Switch's opening roster is very welcome as it makes the system's launch lineup a touch meatier.
But more than that, Snipperclips is a genuinely charming and original puzzle game. Nintendo has been pushing 1-2 Switch as the system's "party game," but Snipperclips is more deserving of the title. Playing 1-2 Switch induces a lot of awkward silence and laughter, but Snipperclips is all about frenzied communication and communal problem solving.
In fact, when you watch Nintendo Treehouse staffers engage with the game, you get sucked in and try to shout solutions for weird problems like how to help characters with no arms stick a pencil into a sharpener. Snipperclips appears to be an engaging group game – and the price is right, too. Don't overlook it next week!
