The Disney Channel & Nintendo Team Up For Nintendo Switch Family Showdown

Do you remember the glory days of TV when shows like Double Dare and GamePro TV ruled the airwaves? Probably not, but Nintendo has just announced a collaboration with Disney to air a new show that will feature families battling it out in some Switch games. The show is called Nintendo Switch Family Showdown and it will air later this summer on the Disney Channel and Disney XD. You have a chance to star in the new program by entering a contest. Full details are below. Good luck!

 

Are you a family that loves Nintendo and wants to show off your skills in various Nintendo games? If so, you can enter for a chance to win the Disney Channel presents Nintendo Switch Family Showdown contest and be one of four families to compete in an epic Nintendo Switch showdown. Nintendo Switch Family Showdown will be featured on the Disney Channel and Disney XD, and streamed on the DisneyNOW app this summer.
 

The Disney Channel presents Nintendo Switch Family Showdown will pit families against each other in a fun and friendly competition. On a colorful Nintendo-themed set, families will compete in a series of challenges in Nintendo Switch games, like searching for collectibles in Super Mario Odyssey, competing in head-to-head matchups in Mario Tennis Aces and participating in dance-offs in Just Dance 2018.
Families can apply for the contest by submitting an original video, up to one minute in length, explaining why they are the ultimate Nintendo fans. Selected families will win a trip to Los Angeles to meet their favorite Disney Channel stars and compete in the Nintendo Switch Family Showdown for a chance to win even more prizes.
