Well, of all the sequels we expected to see arrive in 2023, Nintendo's Everybody 1-2 Switch certainly wasn't one of them. If you had it on your bingo card, congratulations.

The new party game that follows up the Switch launch title that hasn't exactly stood the test of time is one that has leapt out of nowhere, especially after the first game failed across the board to prove its value.

It's interesting, then, that Everybody 1-2 Switch has halved the cost of its predecessor - but it seems that this is but a preventative measure, as one leak has suggested.

Everybody 1-2 Switch will be a flop, says insider

Well, that's a pretty miserable reveal.

A new blog post from video game industry insider Zippo has indicated that Everybody 1-2 Switch is going to be a serious flop for Nintendo, hence its low price point and quiet reveal.

"Make no mistake about it,” Zippo begins. "This game is going to be a piece of s**t, and charging even thirty dollars for this is a slap in the face. Nintendo wanted something to release in June for a quick buck. That's it. That's all there is to it. The fact that they didn't even show an actual trailer proves that they very well know that this game sucks. I'm disappointed they're actually going through with it, but this is a multi-billion corporation at the end of the day.”

It's a pretty funny blog post as is, but it's hard to decry. The game was unveiled mid-day last week with no fanfare, and its $30 price-point certainly indicates that Nintendo has learned from fan complains, or that it's a poor product - and the latter isn't particularly common.

When is Everybody 1-2 Switch coming out?

If your morbid curiosity is getting the best of you, then you can jump on the game incredibly soon.

The game launches this month, coming to life on June 30, so you won't have to waste time wondering. But if this blog post comes to be accurate, then maybe you might want to hold off before you launch straight into pre-ordering it.
