The party packs from Jackbox Games have allowed for players of any experience level to compete against together in a variety of games. Using their phones or other devices, anyone is able to participate in quirky and popular games such as Quiplash, Drawful, and Fibbage. Today’s Nindies Showcase confirmed that The Jackbox Party Pack 5 will be on the Nintendo Switch sometime this October.

The pack will include five games, all which were revealed by Jackbox Games one-by-one. The first is the developer’s marquee game, trivia game You Don’t Know Jack. Making its long-awaited return, this iteration of the game will contain “new surprises,” and has the subtitle Full Stream, which we hope is a reference to online streaming and not something else.

Other games include Split the Room, which has players come up with divisive hypothetical scenarios, rap battle game Mad Verse City, invention drawing game Patently Stupid, and slingshot action game Zeeple Dome, which we previously reported on.

Other platforms have yet to be announced for The Jackbox Party Pack 5, but previous packs have been released on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, smart TV devices, and other set-top boxes. Check out the Humble Jackbox Party Bundle before it ends very soon.
