In what feels like a blast from the game show-laden 1990s and early 2000s, Nintendo and Disney are partnering for the Nintendo Switch Family Showdown Contest. The contest is open now and ends July 1.
Families can apply for the contest by submitting a one-minute video. The video should explain why they are big Nintendo fans (and presumably how marketable and charismatic your family is). Four families (of up to four) will ultimately be selected to compete in the Nintendo Switch Family Showdown. Contest winners will earn a 3-day trip to Los Angeles as well as the chance to meet the teen stars of the Disney Channel.
Contest entry will end July 1. The Nintendo Switch Family Showdown will air later this summer, starting August 27, on the Disney Channel, Disney XD, and the DisneyNOW app. On the Showdown, the winning families will compete in a series of gaming challenges on a Nintendo-themed set.
Examples of challenges include finding collectibles in Super Mario Odyssey, competing head-to-head in Mario Tennis Aces, and showing off the dance moves in Just Dance 2018. The competition is mean to be fun and family-friendly, using modern video games as an anchor to bring families together and make for a fun spectator sport.
Video submissions are open now, and close July 1. The Nintendo Switch Family Showdown will air beginning August 27 on the Disney Channel.
