What does your gaming setup look like? Do you have a fully RGB modded gaming PC that put you into the poorhouse? Do you like to keep it subtle with a recliner and a PlayStation 4? Do you find yourself so busy that your setup solely consists of you holding your Nintendo Switch on the way to work? Whatever you’re working with, Nintendo has you beat.

Earlier today, Nintendo announced its new “Games With an Edge” sweepstakes that will give one lucky winner a gaming setup to brag about for years to come. The grand prize winner of the sweepstakes will receive a Nintendo Switch console, a projector, a 100-inch projector screen, 2,500 V-Bucks (Fortnite‘s in-game currency), and download codes for Splatoon 2, Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion, and Stardew Valley. Let’s not fool ourselves– winning a tough bout of Splatoon 2‘s Turf War on a 100-inch projector is probably the most stylish way you can game. Watering plants in Stardew Valley on a huge screen seems less enticing to me, but hey, to each their own.

In addition having one grand prize winner, the “Games With an Edge” sweepstakes will also include ten first prize winners. While these winners won’t receieve any of the cool projection equipment, they’ll still get a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, 2,500 Fortnite V-Bucks, and the same games as the grand prize winner.

As its name suggests, the “Games With an Edge” sweepstakes focuses on the Nintendo Switch’s more mature, adult-oriented titles. The contest’s webpage boasts that the Switch library contains “action-packed games for every type of gamer,” advertising titles like Octopath Traveler, FIFA 19, and Dark Souls Remastered.

While the likelihood of winning any of these prizes isn’t great for any individual, entrants have nothing to lose. With big multiplayer games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Party right around the corner, the prospect of having a gigantic, 100-inch projection of multiplayer mayhem is too tantalizing to pass up.

Entrants need to create or login to a My Nintendo account to enter the sweepstakes. You can read the official rules of the sweepstakes here and enter the sweepstakes here. Furthermore, if you win, please invite me over to play Switch games with you.
