At the Nintendo Switch Tokyo Livestream, Nintendo unveiled a new party game — 1-2 Switch — custom built for the Joy Con controllers. Using both the left and right Joy-Con, 1-2 Switch allows players to try out the HD Rumble in minigames that “have never been seen before.”

The live-action controller shows off a western duel, with two cowboys drawing their Joy-Con to shoot the other down.

1-2 Switch will be a launch game for the console, and will release on March 3, 2017.

In the meanwhile, you can check out the trailer below.
