Back in 2011, Bandai Namco Entertainment (then known as Namco Bandai) released a variety minigame collection Go Vacation on the Wii to mixed reception. Now, seven years later, Bandai Namco and Nintendo have partnered to re-release the game with some new features on Nintendo Switch on July 27.
For those of you who aren’t aware, Go Vacation features over 50 different vacation-themed minigames set on Kawawii Island. In between these events, the island can also be freely explored on foot, horseback, and snowmobile, and players can find special collectibles and customization items scattered about. The game also features daily challenges that players can complete for special rewards.
While Go Vacation on Nintendo Switch is quite similar to the Wii version of the game, a few features do set it apart. The game supports a wide variety of Switch controllers, which should make its four-player multiplayer easy to set up. Local wireless play will also be supported. When it comes to new content, the Nintendo Switch version of Go Vacation adds mountain and marine fishing, animals on the island that players can photograph, and reward boxes that are occasionally dropped across the island by planes.
You can check out the announcement trailer and some screenshots below. Go Vacation is currently available on Wii and will make its way to Nintendo Switch on July 27.
